THE BRAXMATICS

Soundcloud

Leaving volleys of craters in their wake, dropping rhythm bombs that make you shake, the kind of joy only ruckus can make, however you vote there is no debate, this sound is 100% real-impossible to fake, come catch the spectacle we will create, before it slips away and is too late, we'll travel on to another state, of mind we'll find and will await, the next dimensional phase let's calculate, this quantum physical postulate to propagate and pro-create the harmonious unison to reverberate...


PURR GATO
Soundcloud

Electronics, lights, fog, driving synth lines and emerging, ethereal vocals. Purr Gato makes you want to move and feel, groove and sway, get lost in the beats that vibrate through every fiber of your being. They take you on a journey through lost love, found love, a ride on the roller coaster of self discovery, self acceptance and coping with the outside forces that guide you.

"We are post-punk 70’s, dark-wave 80’s, downbeat club 90’s, and Trip hop of 00’s."

Purr Gato, is an original soul-synth-wave band, that calls Seattle their home. When you listen, you might think they garner inspiration from acts like Depeche Mode, or The Knife. Core band members include songwriter Katrina Kope (vox/synth), Tyler Kope (synths), and Devin Bews (abelton push/acoustic drums).



RICHIE ALDENTE

Richie Aldente is among a handful of rising Seattle bands that are redefining the sound of the post-grunge city. With an intelligent fusion of dance beats, yacht rock, disco and contemporary hip-hop, the band creates ferociously infectious music that is smartly crafted but unabashedly fun-loving. While the sound hints of influences from the 70’s and 80’s, it is decidedly modern, appealing to a new generation of listeners who were born long after the genres that inspired it.
Richie’s 2011 debut CD “For the Ladies,” received instantaneous praise and quickly established the band as one of the most popular groups on the thriving Seattle club scene. The recording, which features the original trio of Tim Kennedy (Earshot Jazz nominee for Best New Artist) on keys and vocals, Ian Sheridan (Jason Mraz) on bass and Claudio Rochat-Felix (Slick Rick) on drums, reaped rave reviews for its crisp production quality, bumping tracks and droll lyrics that purr with sexual innuendo. The video single “Cougar Hunt,” a quirky homage to May/December romances, has received over 10,000 hits on You Tube.

The recent addition of new members– Geoff Sheridan on keys, Dan Rainard on guitar and Jimmie Herrod on vocals–allowed Richie to expand its sound and fueled its artistic velocity. Riding this momentum, the band headed back into the studio to record its new CD “Disco Baby,” the highly anticipated follow-up to “For the Ladies.” Marked by quantum grooves, solid hooks and fresh harmonies, “Disco Baby” is an irresistible invitation to get on your feet, put your hands in the air and join in the almighty get down. The 11-track disc features guest performances by pioneer saxophonist Skerik (Critters Buggin, Bandelabra, Garaga a Toir, Syncopated Taint Septet, Crack Sabbath) and rap artist Illspokinn, who also appeared on “Cougar Hunt.” “Disco Baby” is scheduled for release in mid-September.

In just a few short years, Richie Aldente has cultivated a loyal and spirited following. Live performances are high-energy romps complete with disco balls, glittering costumes and dance inciting shout outs to the crowd. The atmosphere at a Richie show is exuberant, joyful and uniquely inclusive. The band plays to packed nightspots and festivals throughout the Northwest and its fan base continues to grow. Richie is a favorite among club DJ’s on both coasts. WIth the release of “Disco Baby,” Richie Aldente looks forward to extending its reach to new audiences across the globe.


DEVIN BEWS PROJECT

Website

Soundcloud

Graduating Cornish College of the Arts in 2009, Bews has been exploring the expression of music and rhythms through jazz and electronic music while accompanying a variety of bands and projects around Seattle and New York City. His time in New York was greatly influenced by drummer Mark Guiliana. Having the privilege of studying with Guiliana and being exposed to his creativity and performances regularly has shaped Bews into a sought out musician in the Seattle music scene.

Over the years Bews’ extensive studies in improvised electronic music has granted opportunities such as a weekly residency called “Electro Lounge” at Seattle’s Seamonster Lounge. Using Ableton and live musicians to sample their sounds on stage to create beats with just two players for a powerfully full sound. Power duo aside, his work shines when he gets a hold of unique samples to perform solo. Armed with a Midi-fighter-64, drums, and Ableton, Bews’ solo work has gain respect and admiration among DJ’s, songwriters, musicians, dancers, and music lovers from all walks of life. With this unique style, it can hardly be described in words. But no matter, his performances at Lightning in a Bottle ‘18 says it all.
