Friday, March 23, 2012 at 8:30 PM - Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 1:00 AM (PDT)
Oakland, United States
Do you ever wish you could hear amazing music and have room to actually dance? Born from a frustration with the 'standard' music scene, Mass Transit Dance created 'The Ultimate Dance Experience', bringing you the best Producers and DJs in a space where you have room to DANCE in an alcohol-free, barefoot dance space with other conscious movers. To ensure ample room for moving, ticket sales are limited to 300 in the 12,000 square foot Historic Sweet's Ballroom in Oakland.
Complimentary sacred tea service will be provided by Om Shan Tea.
Opening the night will be Sharu, who plays a wide range of music from juicy sacred atmospheres to delicious global beats to gypsy circus whomp to retro remixes to funky fierce mid-tempo breaks. As a Vedic Astrologer, timing is at the crux of his methodology. His sensivity to the moment and its' celestial influences on human consciousness informs the choice of music he plays.
The Polish Ambassador a.k.a. Ample Mammal is a beat machine from the future. Hailing simultaneously from the far reaches of other dimensional Universes and... Oakland, California, this dude drops his own unique blend of electro-funked, glitch-tweaked, wobble-freaked breakbeats that will have you dropping that bottom like it was 92.....3092.
The Ambassador builds all of his live sets from a monstrous stash of original drums, bass, synth, and vox lines. "No Genre Left Behind," David Sugalski jokes as he blends elements of funk, glitch, idm, psychadelic, hip hop, 80s music, jungle, and dub into a beat soup that will instigate healthy doses of booty shake and fist pump.
Claiming to be Poland's ambassador to the Universe, Sugalski has released 7 studio albums, 5 independently. Diplomatic Immunity in 2007, The Phantasmal Farm in 2008, I Found Him. Now I Must Kill Him in 2009, Mating Season (released under the Ample Mammal alias) and First Words in 2010. His most recent two album's were released by STS9's 1320 Records. All 7 albums have obtained favorable press and achieved regular rotation on college, independent, and internet radio.
Synthesizers and a pure spirit are the Ambassador's primary weapons. Join his army and help Polish annihilate bad beats marring the earth with shame and disgrace.
Dr. Toast will be closing with an hour of sweet, downtempo beats to send you off into the night blissed out. Dr. Toast is a stealthy producer of deep, abstracy, hypnotic beats. His influences run the gamut from ambient to breaks to hip hop to IDM to psychill - which are layered together into lush washes of otherworldly sound, and always with a deep, thumping, head-nodding foundation.
