Addison Groove, Doc Daneeka at Deep Down Lounge 5/5Posted by Allen Huang
The Surefire Sound Spring Tour brings two of the UK’s finest, Addison Groove and Doc Daneeka, to our cutting-edge techno loving town. Addison Groove appeared at 2010’s Decibel Fest as Headhunter, playing an excellent set and getting accolades from all sources. His new sound finds him reaching out from his typical dubstep fare into Tek and Juke disciplines, with the wildfire hit “Footcrab” gaining the most traction. He’s a true multi-discipline talent.
Doc Daneeka from Wales runs the boutique label Ten Thousand Yen that has released the likes of xxxy, Julio Bashmore and other big wigs in the UK garage and dubstep scenes. But his own material is no slouch, bouncing from genre to genre and bringing any number of innovative influences together to fuel his global-yet-distinctly-GBR techno sound.
Local staples Kid Hops (host of KEXP’s Positive Vibrations and Expansions shows), Ill Cosby (head of Seattle’s deep hitting Car Crash Set record label), and Sounds in Silence (“loves motorcycles and DJing” according to his mixcloud) are supporting the two cross-Atlantic acts at the Deep Down Lounge, which is a pretty cool space carved out of the basement at Temple Billiards on S Jackson St. The stairs down to the show are near the bar entrance, so if you’ve run smack into some hardcore Emerald City Supporters you’ve probably gone too far.
