VIDEO: Performing with PERFECT STRANGER @ HOTwired Seattle

The transition from 2014 to 2015 was a busy time for me. I first played a complete set of original music at Neumos for Solstice Insomnia, then it was Ancient Future: Sacred New Year’s Eve with Rafe Pearlman. Then it was back to Re-bar with Brian Enoch and Lara vs. Coral for the first HOTwired since April of 2013. With such a long dry spell, people in Seattle were so ready for some great psychedelic techno, progressive and psytrance.

We got some great photos and video from the night which I turned into a 4 minute video teaser. Enjoy!

PERFECT STRANGER
http://www.perfectlystrange.com/
A generic label would not do justice to the depth of Perfect Stranger’s heartfelt music, which transposes feelings from across the wide range of human emotions. In his creation, you’ll find tracks inspired by the bliss of sunbeams, by an ironic but yet candid take on the simple pleasures of life, or by the darker side of the self. His demanding standards regarding what our man qualifies as the “art” of sound, have led him to appropriate today’s trend, undoubtedly Techno, which he also DJ’s with a rare understanding and acute intelligence. His “new hybrid sound”, that incorporates Progressive Trance embedded in the dirty Techno-ish grooves and breakdowns, actually enables to maintain that old school spirit that is missed so much nowadays, but in a totally new and exciting presentation and composition. That is why it’s the ultimate brain candy out there at the moment.

Special gratitude to Gudni GudnasonKotaro Manabe, and the Wakyo team for taking a chance on a relatively unknown artist from across the pacific.

 

“I, Aeternal” was released on Fusion for Peace Productions on July 24, 2013 and has been steadily growing in popularity sine then, becoming a top seller for the label on Beatport despite having very little marketing attention. The label considered Osiris Indriya as an artist to be a risky experiment at the time, but moved ahed with the release to expand their roster of artists and album releases. Osiris’ sizable grassroots following centered on the West Coast of the US has kept this release alive through social media sharing, and regular live performances by the artist.

Here is what Resident Advisor has to say about Ageha:

Ageha is a nightclub located in Tokyo’s Bay Area Shin Kiba. Opened in 2002 and outfitted with Octagon speakers, it’s renowned for its sound. The main dance floor is called Area, and has a capacity of approximately 2,400. You can also enjoy music at the bar space Island, the outdoor poolside stage Water, the multi-purpose warehouse Box and, in summer, there’s even a beach built exclusively for the season.

While the club holds extensive techno and electro nights on weekends, on weekdays the space is used as a live music venue under the name Studio Coast. To get there via public transportation, you can take the free shuttle buses running from Shibuya and Roppongi all night and the venue is a five minute walk from the last stop, Shin Kiba, of the Yuraku-cho subway line.

For a detailed description and walk-through of the club, see the Ageha home page:
