Bottom Forty

Bottom Forty is a mirror ball in New York, a basement in Chicago, a cruise in L.A. and a night in the desert.

Easter Otteremedy: De La Creme Selects Pt. 1 by Karl Kamakahi

Karl-Kamakahi-dlcChiiiiiild…it’s been a weekend already, and we haven’t even hit the Easter festivities or Flammable or Honey Soundsystem yet (tonight–see below). Green Velvet banging out tracks with live lyrics at Q, Atish smiling and dancing around ETG while delivering deep house, the Train Car Party with DJ Diz going off Chicago-style, Jake Shears bringing an actually credible tech-house DJ set to Rapture, and Two Dudes in Love helping bucket & Zak celebrate conjoined bachelorette/birthday parties last night at the Eagle. I’mma try to make it to see Riz Rollins this afternoon for his special Easter Bonnet edition of REVIVAL at Q, and perhaps Flam tonight if I can revive my limbs from the dead…

But in the meantime, chill to this mix from local Seattle treasure Karl Kamakahi. Karl is known for his bomb-dropping beats as part of the Flammable, De La Creme, Proper, Front Street and Conception crews here in town, but this sweet downtempo/acid jazz mix he crafted with Seattle’s Gene Lee is one of the best  chill sets I’ve heard since the days of DJ Funky Nasir’s Spice @ Moe’s in the early 90s. It’s been on constant repeat in our car for months. Perfect for a sunny Sunday afternoon–and a free download.

And if you’re reading this from San Francisco, come out to see Bottom Forty’s own Nark at Honey Soundsystem at Holy Cow tonight! I heard something about a party bus…
