This Friday, the legendary dubstep duo Truth (LA/NZ) is returning to Seattle to generate some seriously low frequencies. You may remember the last time Tom Kha had them out, two years ago at Re-bar. This time, dubstep will flow at one of our favorite clubs in Sodo, Monkey Loft.
Truth needs little introduction. The duo boasts releases dating back almost a decade, on Datsik‘s label Firepower Records, as well as on Deep Medi. They also have their own well-respected imprint Deep, Dark & Dangerous which has been around for about two years.
The night will spread across genres and the local community of artists- DJ support will be provided from Subset, Korra The Kid, Subduktion, and of course, the Tom Kha boys. We’re incredibly excited to experience such a diverse roster of artists- from house, to DnB and dubstep, Tom Kha has all the bases covered for your Friday night.
Subset currently throws one of Tom Kha’s favorite parties in Seattle, Noise Complaint. He also formerly ran Bassment Saturdays at Webster Hall in NYC, and is heavily affiliated with Holy Ship!. An incredibly versatile Seattle DJ, this will be his first Tom Kha bass music set and we’re looking forward to having him on board! Subduktion is an old Tom Kha friend and favorite. You may know him from incredible releases on Never Slept and Free Love Digi. His unique style of hybrid bass music and halftime drum and bass/footwork rhythms fit right in with the Tom Kha sound as well as the vibes of this event. Korra The Kid is an up and coming drum and bass DJ out of Bellingham who Tom Kha has had their eyes on for a while. She’s been making some noise in the Seattle area, and after playing a show with her a few months ago, and experiencing her proper selections and mixing, they knew they had to get her on a TK show ASAP!
While it may look like light rain is coming our way, our fingers are crossed that we’ll be able to chill upstairs on Monkey Loft’s excellent patio/downtown viewing spot. This unique amenity is one of our favorite parts of Monkey Loft- with plenty of seating, a firepit, and another bathroom (looking at you, double-fisting booze-fiends). About a year ago when we first started attending the club, the draw was more minimal. Fast forward only a year later and the club is often completely jam-packed, with two floors of music for your enjoyment. While similar to the Kremwerk/Timbre Room complex, Monkey Loft feels more open: somewhat tucked away from the bustle of downtown or Capitol Hill.
The vibey warehousey Monkey Loft downstairs will also be open, starting at 11. You can expect to get out on the patio around 2am, after last call. There’ll be plenty of room but definitely show up early.
Finally, Tom Kha has told us to inform you that they won’t be doing presale tickets for this show– Monkey Loft will most likely hit capacity, so they recommend arriving early to avoid a long line. Try to get there early so you can get your stamp, then pregame or get a snack somewhere- you probably want to make sure you have enough energy to still be standing at the end of the night!
