GoldSweat w/Sticky K (Dubsided)

Sticky K is name to be known. But to know is to already be familiar and I can guarantee that many have no idea. I had the pleasure of meeting Sticky K face to face in his element. Isla Vista is infamous for being an experience in an of itself. Thousands of kids attending UCSB live predominently in this segregated area near the airport 20 minutes away from State Street. Imagine your entire school, ages 18 -25, live within 3 square miles of each other and basically do whatever the hell they want. I graduated 2 years ago 90 minutes north at CPSU, where kids would come back from weekends in IV covered in bandages, STILL wasted, missing their roommate, and often short about a hundred brain cells. The culture that Sticky K mutated from is one where drugs induce inspiration where chaos is dealt with daily. Kegstands and mushroom trips balance along side ritual surf sessions and hot summers. The party culture in IV outshines anything any of clubs in Santa Barbara where djs like Steve Aeoki, Donald Glaude, Christopher Lawrence, and DJAM have all been featured. IV Garb, a creature standing on its own 4 feet, basically created a foundation for Rodney Kashani aka Sticky K, to develop. One might think that they're a bit behind in image with their neon tank tops and paint pen typography, but trends don't matter when you're that close to LA, surf between classes, and listen to electro before bed... right? Man... I LOVE college...

All humor aside, the Sticky K is on some serious sleeper hype right now. Graduating with a UC degree and a debut release on Dubsided Records, the world is ready. Here's a few choise words from fans around the world:

"His Bandari Funk EP is a straight up party banger, bass heavy egg on your face shit that i just cant get enough of at the moment. Sticky K has plenty of remixes out there on many other blogs but its his original tracks that really show off his production skills and make you sit up and pay attention, especially his track called "The Wierdo" that is now available to stream on his myspace page."
~Scatterblog

"This monster synth assault comes courtesy of California producer Sticky K, newly signed to Switch's Dubsided label for obvious reasons: in this track, dude hits drum patterns in the crosshair like he's wielding a taser to our minds and/or been hanging out with some Italian powerhouse (oh wait, he has!), twitching the rhythm like this is the last night we will ever dance before the zombie apocalypse."
~Fader

"Our Rodders (ROD KASHANI-STICKY K) has been busy of late, he has just relocated to San Francisco and starts his residency at the ‘Triple Crown’. He is working on his next EP for Dubsided and our prediction that he is going to be big is proving to be true as he has just been asked to do a guest mix for BBC RADIO 1 for the KISSY SELL OUT show!!!!!"
~Generation Bass



He has just released the 'Bandari Funk’ EP for the world renowned dance label Dubsided and also has a number of remixes under his belt for artists including Crookers, Maluca, Larry Tee, Major Lazer, Diplo, and MSTRKRFT. Sticky K will be featured on Kissy Sell Out's BBC Radio 1 show with a very anticipated guest mix as well as more mahem! For those living anywhere in Northern California, Sticky K can be found at Triple Crown in San Francisco, where he is resident DJ for GoldSweat. We are honored to give Sticky the wheel here in SF and I'm sure the city is already buzzing. $5 all night ain't a bad deal considering you'll be hearing some of the best dance music in the world mixed by Sticky K and his friends.

A night with Pitch Black


GoldSweat is SUPER excited about this event. Its not a party but more of an educational opportunity for all. It'll be like going to your favorite class in college but better cause its not gonna cost your parents $40,000 a year. Check it!

Pyramind and Ableton proudly announce an exclusive one-night-only event in San Francisco, “An Evening With Pitch Black.”

Pitch Black are award winning multimedia artist Michael Hodgson and producer Paddy Free. Having pumped their way through the electronic music scene since their inaugural performance at the international Gathering New Year's Eve festival in 1997, they have spent the last twelve years rousing dance floors, generating rave reviews, winning awards, and gaining thousands of fans across the world with their distinctive sound.

Fusing organic ambiences and layered soundscapes with skanking keyboards, cutting acid riffs and thumping rhythmic grooves, and using as dub the glue that holds it all together, one leading critic has described them as "Orbital meets King Tubby.”

Coming up on Thursday June 18th at 7PM, they’ll be at Pyramind for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how they put together their live show, which features not only a musical performance but a visual aspect creating a totally immersive experience.



Topics for the evening will include:

• Setup of the Pitch Black live touring rig.
• How they compose their music, plus production tips and techniques.
• Incorporating the visual element.
• The Pitch Black Story.
• How Ableton Live makes it all possible.

This event will be free and open to the public. So please spread the word, invite a friend, and join Pyramind and Ableton for this exclusive event. GoldSweat will definitely be in the house with multiple note pads and serious intuition.

Belly Up is about to jump on a plane to Prague in less than 24 hours and he's bringing his cold. Hopefully he's overdosed on airborn for the multi-hour plane ride across the world, otherwise we might see him as the next featured documentary on Current TV. Regardless, I'd like to take this opportunity to then, welcome Mike Konnect to the GoldSweat standard. Mike crumbs from the old bay aka Baltimore proper. Having moved to the west coast some 4 years ago after growing up in the club scene during the historic mid-atlantic rave era. I'm not even going to link you on that one, its THAT significant. Now a frequent lurker of back doors down in the lower haight, GoldSweat is happy to have him on our side. He don't give change to hobo's and hates his friends. Shit... maybe he should just work for us instead of hang out with us... whatever.

RICHIE PANIC AND UFO


San Francisco Drum and Bass Renegade UFO is back in the Bay and Teaming Up with Blow Up DJ Richie Panic(?). How did these two match up to form the Duo? I'm not to sure but I know they both have a profound love for Lily Allen, Whiskey and Music. Not necessarily in that order either. Word on the Dirty Streets is that they are well into working on some heavy fucking bassline insanity. If this is them just getting started then I'm sure the real ISH is upon us!! Let's face it, UFO can flip the script on anything in any genre, and Richie adds that madness we know and love him for in San Francisco!! BLOW UP is 2nd through 4th Fridays at the Rickshaw stop. The official website for the UFO + Richie Panic mutant take over... HERE!

Doesn't nonsense.

We remind ourselves daily that its not a joke. Having fun seriously allows yourself to experience things more positively. Optimism encourages influenced results because sometimes you just have to not care. Thanks to UpTurn for coming fresh off some summer ready college kids shit cause wouldn't you say Sunday was wonderful in the city? Agreed.
