The news is out, after months and months of work, planning and rebranding, we are so completely thrilled to announce the revival of Bottom Forty as an event and dance experience. Please join us on the 2nd Saturdays at Kremwerk, starting on August 9th, with special guest headliner and one of our top podcasters, Hyasynth.
As always, Bottom Forty’s inspiration comes from the travel and adventures of our crew, the video above was compiled from clips from my travels over the past year.
RSVP your first and last name to BottomFortySeattle@gmail.com and we’ll give you a free Bottom Forty t-shirt upon arrival (while supplies last), if we run out, your cover charge will be halved.
Join our Facebook invite here and get ready to get lifted.
Chiiiiiild…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…
