Bottom Forty

If you don’t know Flammable’s Wesley Holmes, you should. And if you do, you know Wes will be serving the children gorgeous house music with fat, chunky basslines for days.

I downloaded Wesley’s new mix “Resistance4” this weekend, co-produced by his eminence and homie’s homie Gene Lee, to my phone and found myself screaming in my car when the bass hit. Great stuff–GET IT. Love these boys…among Seattle’s finest and a credit to our burgeoning electronic music community.

Really Seattle? What are you trying to do to me? Really?
