Night Riot! Part Two w/ Telephoned (NY) and Rude Dudes (PDX) Sunday, 1/23/11
The second installment of Seattle's raging dance riot, featuring booty shaking talent from near and far; DJ and singer duo Telephoned live from Brooklyn NY, ass-shaking-chic dj duo Rude Dudes from Portland, and Seattle's favorite cunty-queer dj's Riff-Raff and Nark.
9pm, at The Baltic Room
Telephoned was born one night in Brooklyn when DJ/producer Sammy Bananas (Fool's Gold) and singer/party starter Maggie Horn (Good Peoples) decided to record their own version of T-Pain's "Can't Believe It." Their track was neither remix nor cover - instead, the duo fashioned a postmodern take on both, warping the original beat into a hypnotic club track and bringing out the dreamy qualities only hinted at in Pain's auto-tuned melodies. Sammy and Maggie's fresh "Can't Believe It" quickly became a DJ favorite - even making it into mix rotation on LA hip-hop station Power 106! - so they decided to keep recording as a team, cleverly named after the kids game of Telephone: no faithful copies, just a party line of unexpected twists. "Pop Champagne" is their latest concoction, turning Ron Browz' rap hit into a spacey dancefloor gem ("Bottle service electro meets Triplets Of Belleville!" says Ms Horn) that's instantly addictive and massively charming. More reworks are on their way, turning pop into new-school standards and continuing to put a fresh spin on party music. Telephoned are off the hook!

RUDE DUDES (PDX)
Rude Dudes is a DJ Duo from Portland, consisting of DJ RAD! and Solomon, DJ. Not your conventional DJs, and definitely not the conventional duo, Rude Dudes are smashing genres and putting them back together in a crazy blender, smashing parties and shows for the last 3 years. Doing what DJ's call 1's, 2 turntables and mixer, mixing into each other and always working the mixer, blowing through records at a mindblowing speed. Rude Dudes have shared the stage together and seprately with the likes of Chromeo, Kid Sister, Flosstradamus, Z-trip, Ladytron, Major Lazer, A-trak, Ghostland Observatory, Simian Mobile Disco, Little Boots, and so much more. Playing every genre under the sun, from Electro and Bmore, to Hip Hop and Dubstep, House to Baile Funk and Kudoro, always bending genres and melding tracks for an insane ride.
Queer .grime. dirty. smooth. drop it low. heart with soul. party face. ghetto classiness. electro. electro-hop. remixes. edits. house. tech house. minimal house. techno. and anything else that make magic, Riff-Raff is Seattle's premiere ass shakin' instigator.
An adaptable DJ that can't be stuck into one genre, Nark doesn't waste your time masturbating in the DJ booth, but instead plays for and off of you, whether that lands up being obscure 70's punk, disco, nu-wave, house, electro or more, he refuses to let you leave the dancefloor. One thing's for certain, keep your radio requests to yourself, he wouldn't touch top 40 with a stick, too easy.
