BRASSTRACKSAfter studying together at Manhattan School of Music, Ivan Jackson and Conor Rayne linked up to form production duo Brasstracks in 2014. Initially a side project allowing them to use their respective instruments to produce electronic music they were passionate about, a cover of Rihanna's 'Four Five Seconds' with Lido cemented them on the SoundCloud producer scene. Since their early beginnings in the SoundCloud space they have released an array of critically acclaimed covers and remixes, toured with Lido, Mr Carmack, Jack Garratt, GRiZ and BigGigantic, played iconic venues such as Red Rocks and collaborated on songs with GoldLink, Anderson Paak, Lido, Khalid and Chance The Rapper. August 2016 saw the release of their debut EP, Good Love feat. collaborations with Roses Gabor, Jay Prince, Lido, FatherDude and Masego. Most notably however, Ivan and Conor produced arguably the biggest HipHop record of 2016 with Chance The Rappers ‘No Problem' feat Lil Wayne 2Chainz. This led to GRAMMY nominations for Best Rap Song and subsequent GRAMMY wins in Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance categories, to add to Ivan's nomination for writing on Anderson Paak's ‘Am I Wrong'. With a new project in the works and festival appearances every weekend throughout the summer, these two 'grammy award winning kids' are shaping up to have a huge 2017. Learn more about Brasstracks:FacebookSoundcloud FORT KNOX FIVEWhile FORT KNOX FIVE compose music like a band in the studio, Steve Raskin and Jon H started off as DJs. They pioneered a unique live DJ set using mashed­up acapellas and effects woven into original tracks, exclusive mixes and dance floor destroyers. These sets rock parties with infectious grooves that effortlessly move from funk, reggae, and hip­hop to prime time 4/4 beats and breaks and have proven irresistible to club goers worldwide. Fort Knox Five has had the honor and privilege to work with some amazing vocalists over the years . The most recent collaboration is the stripped down funk banger 'Don't Go.' with DC funk legend Sir Joe Quarterman who had his first hit in 1973 with '(I Got) So Much Trouble In My Mind'. To have an opportunity to record such a classic voice and present it with a modern twist is what Fort Knox has always been about. Last spring saw the release of Fort Knox Five's second full length album, "Pressurize the Cabin" and every song has been getting remixed and released as a single. FK5 have enlisted their friends and fellow funky electronic producers from around the world to flip up the original tracks. The remixers read like a who's who of contemporary funky electronica including: Deekline, DJ Dan Mike Balance, Wes Smith, Worthy, Slynk, Neighbour, Ursula 1000, Skiitour, Dirty Dubsters, Mat the Alien, Sabo, Smalltown DJs, Basement Freaks, Omegaman, Bobby C Sound TV, Pumpkin, Qdup, Bart Baker Warp9 and more! Fort Knox Five has always embraced remix culture and they drop these remixes in their eclectic sets which allows them to play their own songs in different styles and genres. It's been a hard year for the Fort Knox Five who have soldiered on after the loss of founding member Jon H who was a driving force in the group and the music industry. In the wake of Jon H's tragic passing the group has picked up the pieces and is moving forward with the band and the label with a renewed sense of purpose and drive. Founding member Steve Raskin has taken over as the principle DJ for the group and now leads the charge of the Fort Knox brigade on the road into the funky future. Learn more about Fort Knox Five:WebsiteFacebookSoundcloudTwitterYoutube MANOJ DJ Manoj arose from the dancefloor and will always be a dancer at heart. He is one of the pioneers in the west coast dance culture emerging circa 1991 both shaping and being shaped by this amazing adventure. Continually moved and changed by the power of music and the many transformational experiences he encounters while dancing and performing, he now dedicates his life to share with others the inspirations that he has received. Understanding and deeply rooted in the legacy of the the most formidable founding dj's, that the power of dance music is unleashed through the ability to take dancers on a journey, he uses the contemporary technologies available with the vast genres of music to weave a limitless musical landscape. Realizing every opportunity to play music for others is a gift, he does his best to stay open, meet people where they are at and then take them to a more inspiring, lighter and playful space within themselves as the music comes through.

Calendar Nature Night: SKYGLOW: A Magical Timelapse Film and Conversation Exploring Light Pollution with filmmaker Harun Mehmedinović Arts/Culture/Recreation Renowned filmmaker Harun Mehmedinović will present SKYGLOW, a magical “timelapse” video series exploring North America’s remaining magnificent night skies and the grave threat of light pollution to our fragile environment. Cinema 21: 616 NW 21st Ave Portland, OR Doors open at 6:30 p.m.Film screening and conversation at 7 p.m.Pre-sale tickets and pricing information. Join the Audubon Society of Portland, in partnership with the Lloyd Eco District, for a visually arresting night of film and conversation with renowned filmmaker Harun Mehmedinović. Harun will present SKYGLOW, a magical 'timelapse' video series exploring North America's remaining magnificent night skies and the grave threat of light pollution to our fragile environment. The creeping fog of light pollution is a problem to which we have become largely desensitized, especially in urban settings. And yet, this issue affects us all deeply, personally and biologically. Left undeterred, it has dire consequences for environmental health, human health, and the visibility of our night skies. The effects of light pollution are well studied, and have been shown to adversely affect circadian rhythms in humans, plants, and wildlife alike, as well as famously confusing nighttime migrants by drowning out the celestial cues they use to navigate while on migration. After traveling over 150,000 miles and taking over 3 million pictures in three years, filmmakers Harun Mehmedinović and Gavin Heffernan made this film series that 'explores the history and mythology of celestial observation, the proliferation of electrical outdoor lighting that spurred the rise of the phenomena known as "skyglow,' and the Dark Sky Movement that's fighting to reclaim the night skies.' Harun will be in attendance and will discuss the insidious growth of light pollution in our cities and the miraculous calm of spaces that are hidden from artificial light. It is sure to be a night to remember. 2017-10-17 19:00:00.0 2017-10-17 20:30:00.0 0 0 0
