I recently went to San Francisco last year for Thanksgiving and I found some time to split away from the family and check out this party called As You Like It. Thanks to Resident Advisor, I got the 411 on Prosumer's whereabouts the day before his debut at States of Being in Los Angeles. Luckily I decided to make it out to the party and was adorned by the sounds of AYLI resident, Sam Kern aka Sassmouth spinning vinyls of grooving sultry acid-house. Sassmouth has been DJ/producing electronic music for years now and has a foundation of dance music locked in through studying and being apart of Chicago and Detroit's house and techno scenes. She has a confident resilience in the 12" she spins and fights the power for woman DJs around the world, effortlessly slaying dancefloors. Her participation with electronic dance community, The Naughty Bad Fun Collective, has conjured up a new night at Chicago's beloved, Smart Bar, called Planet Chicago, where Sam will be playing on March 22nd. From Chicago to SF, Sassmouth installs the 50th mix in the DECKast series. We are highly appreciative of her hour long generous sound distribution, featuring a solid dance tracklist. There are nothing but good dance vibrations to gage the listener into a body-bopping trance. Read what she had to say about the mix and listen to it below...
"This podcast was inspired by a special night spent playing and dancing until the very end at an underground event in San Francisco a couple of months ago. I played the opening set, a challenge I always savor- starting off with some moodier ambient tracks and building the groove as all the friendly faces make their way to the dance floor. A little bit Chicago, a little bit Detroit, all purchased at our beloved vinyl sanctuary Gramaphone Records here in Chicago. Enjoy!" -Sassmouth

Avalon Emerson's electrifying "Pressure/Quoi" record is out now on Icee Hot and has been garnering positive support since its sneak peak preview on the label's soundcloud. 'Quoi' was recently re-imagined into an interactive visual form by SF 3D artist, Cabbibo. The highly interactive music video enables the listener (best viewed & and played with on Chrome) to experience, 'Quoi', in a vibrant digitized realm of its own. With the move of a mouse you can explore the movement and rhythm of the instant dancefloor pleaser, Ms.Emerson has conducted, in a space where atoms and molecules clump together to churn the bass louder while consistently structuring engaging visual patterns. It is probably one of the coolest & creative music videos I have ever witnessed. Stream the whole track, 'Quoi' here. Watch it below or interact with the radical video in your browser here.
