This month’s installment of As You Like It Coast to Coast features artists that bring they own influences, stories, passions that lay the the framework for today’s new generation Seattle — Sharlese, Tony H and Succubass — and a Bay Area duo — JX-216 and Rubidium.
Sharlese’s EBM influenced techno, brings forward both the synths and the punch. Tony H and Succubass come at bass music from different directions. Tony H brings a bottom heavy house, with hip-hop flavored tech-house, that’s putting his production on the playlists of dance-floor movers around the world. Succubass laidback, broken beat, bottom heavy chug is the perfect break to your quarantine distress. Her recent Daisychain mix is in constant rotation. Seattle ex-pats, now calling Oakland home, JX-216 and Rubidium have their finger on the pulse North American techno. Pre-COVID the duo co-produced a bi-monthly party Konstruct at UGSF, pushing a big sound more generally found in warehouses in an intimate community driven night.
