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.

Here at Bottom Forty we usually toot other people’s horns, but occasionally we’ll haul out our own for a toot. Here’s a fun live mix I did from a terrific monthly in February called Proper, put on at Electric Tea Garden in Seattle by De La Creme and Flammable residents Xan Lucero and Karl Kamakahi. It ended up being an unexpectedly controversial evening, as Xan & Karl had dubbed it a “Midwinter Playa Affair,” and this got me into my burner Camp Conception headspace. Donning three changes of outfits, and a whole bunch of sounds from different genres, some house folks were a little shocked when I busted out the playa sounds and genderfuck drag instead of the house textures they were familiar with. But she was on a roll in her marching drum major hat and velvet leopard-print single strap dress originally given by a prostitute in the Mission district of San Francisco, and it was freakum time.

Several whiskeys and half an adderol later, this is the set that came out between 1-4am that evening, ranging from booty house to bomb electro to tribal to breaks to disco to dubstep with raps to Zeppelin to 80s new wave. Chunky:
