Skratch Lounge

Here is a poster I made the other day for the homies the Groove Technicians (DJ Bamboo + DJ Spinja). I bought a book with 1,000 plus color swatches and that came in really handy when coming up with this design.

If you don't already know, this event is all about the dj and the art of the scratch. They host guests every month and have great scratch sessions featuring some of the best in the town. So if you're a top notch dj or a young buck looking to start tickling the v, come thru and see how it's done. Ya learn something new everyday, right?

SOTA @ Columbia City Theater

Come join the Members Only crew at the Columbia City Theater on Saturday, August 14th for a night of real good chunes in a stellar venue. This is the first major headlining show for the SOTA boys in this fine city and we're very pleased to be bringing the local legends Stay Hi Bros along for the ride. Up and comers Hi-Life Soundsystem (who we will be working with on their upcoming release) and the Good Sin along with DJ Rise round out the bill.

If you haven't checked out the newly revamped venue, this is your excuse. It's been given a proper makeover and has some of the best techs and staff in the biz working on their side. We are really excited to work with them, and look forward to throwing many a party there moving forward.

So get down there on August 14th and behold some great music in one of the most historical and well kept venues in the SEA.

SOTA @ Vitamin Water Social Club

We got to be the super secret special guests at the Sap'n Release Party last weekend at the Vitamin Water Social Club (Sole Repair) on Cap Hill. It was my first time checking out the spot since it got the corporate treatment and was quite impressed. Sound was bangin, place was packed, and free vita water goes surprisingly well with vodka.

We rocked for about 40 minutes and P Smoov made a special appearance to bless the crowd with "Hey Hey."

Take a gander at the video and understand the value in bringing some much needed substance to that huge pile of boring that sits on some of the most valuable real estate in town.
