DAZ-I-KUE and HVW8 Painters NOVEMBER 19th at The Baltic Room

I am pretty stoked for this show. A few years back I had the pleasure to meet Daz-I-Kue, what a great guy and his music is a beautiful mix of classic soul jazz, 8-bit crunch, Jamaican soundclash, and african funk. Basically the sounds of the whole African diaspora rolled into one. Along with this we also get the amazing artists of HVW8. These guys basically kickstarted the whole Live painting thing that we are starting to see now a days in the hipper night clubs. Regardless if you like it or not these cats are a sight not to be missed. check this info yo:

Daz-I-Kue is the unsung hero of the Bugz in the Attic crew, a
collective of producers, DJs and performers at the forefront of the
international Broken Beat scene. Daz shapes the Bugz patented
electro-funk sound from the BitaSuite studio in West London. His
remixes and productions for such premier artists as Basement Jaxx,
Macy Grey, Fela Kuti, Masters at Work, Naked Music, and Jazzanova
have take over dancefloors worldwide. Fresh from the success of the
Radio1 hit song 'Booty-La-La', Daz has completed the Bugz in the
Attic debut album due out in early 2006. Please welcome Daz-I-Kue
back to The Baltic Room.

HVW8 Art Installation is Gene Pendon, Tyler Gibney and Dan Buller.
Born in Montreal in 1998 and operating now two cities, the HVW8
collective are best known for creating art pieces at music events,
galleries and unique spaces and have been touring their ‘Political
Minded’ exhibit to major cities across the US for the past year.
Since their debut performances at the 1999 International Jazz
Festival of Montreal, the art trio have toured and exhibited
throughout Canada, the United States, England, Puerto Rico and Japan
creating live art pieces along side musicians and DJs such as
Jazzanova, Afrika Bambaataa, Gilles Peterson, Bugz in the Attic, The
Herbaliser, Roots Manuva, Osunlade and Kid Koala.

Music Is My Art is an album of next level electronic, soul and hip
hop from around the world. Most of the tracks that appear on Music Is
My Art were recorded exclusively for this release and capture the
cross-section of worldwide talent that work closely with the
collective. On Music Is My Art full spectrum sonics from established
faves like Plantlife, Seiji (Bugz in the Attic) and Osunlade sit next
to up n’comers like John Arnold, DJ Language, Rich Medina, and new
head-turning tracks from the likes of Black Spade, Radio City and
Owusu and Hannibal. It’s raw hip hop, rough broken beat, left field
soul, future funk, and house that works together and typifies the
kinds of sounds you’d hear at a HVW8 curated event. This stop marks
the first time HVW8 has performed in a Seattle club in over 4 years.
