Epic @ The Rebar

Think about the last time you went out and heard something (or someone) new. When you were entranced, surprised, intrigued, delighted by what was coming out of the speakers. When you ditched the crowd at the bar and found a new one on the dancefloor. When you forgot what time it was, what year it was, when you stayed out later than you thought you would because you couldn’t bear to miss the next record, or the next few.

The best DJs live and breathe music all day long, but you only get to hear them for an hour at a time. It’s time to change that. At Epic, it’s all headline. Every month, talented locals and visiting guests will take over the whole Re-Bar, for the whole night, so you can hear what they’re all about. Not just what they can find the time to play in a one-hour slot, but what they’d play for you and your friends in their living room. Not just the hits, but the inspiration behind them.

Open to close sets are a true test of any DJ and a challenge that most live for. They are chance for the DJ to immerse the dance floor in the groove, shift the focus across the full experience and tell a complete story.

:::::::::::::::::PEZZNER:::::::::::::::: 
(Hunt & Gather, Get Physical)
http://www.pezzner.com/


When it comes to eclecticism, few other electronic musicians can replicate the sheer ingenuity that American producer David Pezzner invokes within his mosaic compositions. Hailing from Seattle’s enlightened indie-music scene, the multifarious studio mogul has steadily supplied a series of notable releases since the early 90s. 

His 2013, LP for Systematic Records ”Last Night In Utopia” is a 15 track walk through of his electro/organic sounding style, in full dance-floor mode traversing with ease between disco, house and techno. Beatportal wax lyrical how it “blows like a cool breeze through the stale air of a market crowded with by-the-numbers deep house” and Resident Advisor note the “rising, sizzling dub effects” adding “a steeliness to his refined contours”. 5 Magazine coins Pezzner’s work as ”Future classics made for dance floors in the here and now”, while Ibiza Voice describes his music as ”Lush and tense with a transcendental twist”.

In the Summer of 2015 Pezzner launched his "Hunt & Gather" imprint with a solid focus on forward-thinking dance music receiving massive support from DJ Hell, Terry Farley, Laurent Garnier, &ME, Peter Kruder, Lee Burridge, Ame, Mano Le Tough and many others.

Club shows abound not only in Seattle, Pezzner’s live shows and DJ sets regularly move the dance floors of some of the most renowned venues including Space Ibiza, Rex Club Paris, Womb Tokyo, Fabric London, Cielo New York, and Chicago’s famed Smartbar.

JIMPSTER
Jamie Odell aka Jimpster, aka Audiomontage has been producing, remixing and DJing for the last 23 years, while co- running his Freerange Records label (voted Best British Label 2007) for the last 18 of those. His musical upbringing and early introduction to production (his first release was on UK label Jumpin’ & Pumpin’ in 1990) and DJing have helped him forge a sound that is at once warm and deep as well as being innovative and also club friendly. 
His Seattle appearance at Decibel Festival 2011 drew amazing reviews, reminding us why he is one of house music's most sought-after artists.


PRESS:
"UNITING SOULS has contributed to setting standards as to what the Seattle electronic music community has to offer on a local and international level. It is because of organizations like Uniting Souls that Seattle is a favorite stop among touring electronic musicians. With e-mail, cell phones, cheap flights, declining costs in music production, and the explosion of information technology, the face of the global music community is rapidly changing, but it is collectives like Uniting Souls that are evolving right alongside to help define and retain humanness in the often impersonal world we've created."

With residents:

HANSSEN (Hush Hush, Seattle)
‘Hanssen’ is a person named Bob Hansen. This person was born in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States of America, where he has continued to live since that day. Approximately 17 years after he was born he began to collaborate musically with another person who goes by the name of Dave Pezzner. They produced and released a body of original work and remixes under the name ‘Jacob London’. This work was mainly created in a style most referred to as “quirky house”, “funky house”, or “jackin’ quirk balls”. Many people around the world appreciated their output so much, they were invited to travel to other continents and play this music for them. Many times, people were even content to hear them play other people’s music.

MARK LIPPERT (Cardio, Seattle)
It all started with two 15's in the back of his '78 Corolla and has pretty much gone down hill since then. Hailing from the lazy left-coast of Florida, he moved to Seattle in early 2015 after a long stint in Atlanta and a short one in Chicago. 
His primary focus is his inability to focus. All the manifestations of house music are game: from slo-mo disco-infused jams to tripped-out techno and everything else in between. Being part of both the Warm Art music collective and a resident with Cardio allowed him to play alongside (and name-drop) his music idols, such as Charles Webster and Morgan Geist, as well as stalwarts like Alexi Delano, Franklin de Costa, and Kate Simko. Plus disco-stars Psychemagik and Eddie C, and up-and-comers like Trus'Me and Soul Clap.
In essence, Mark enjoys doing things with people who enjoy doing things with people in places where music can be enjoyed with those people.

PEZZNER (Hunt & Gather, Seattle)
David Brian Pezzner was born in Tarzana, California in 1975 and currently lives in Seattle, Washington. He is 5 foot 7 inches in height and weighs about 165 lbs. His brother, Bill works at the Port Of Seattle and has four children, two of whom are actually step-children.
When David works in his studio where he makes electronic music, his wife brings him a drink and discusses her day. The door-keeper comes in to give him a telegram sent the previous year from the Eolian Islands.
In 2010 he wrote an album of music which was released by Freerange records. A year later David’s first and only daughter, Eloise Sylvia was born. She was 5 pounds 11 ounces at birth. David spoke only English and cooked meals for his family every day until 2013 when a company called Systematic Recordings contracted him for another album. He sleeps exactly like any other man but, as you will no doubt have noticed, he is not an orthodox painter of the old school, but rather a modern artist. A designer of sound.
