SexPop Vol. 1
It is with so much great pleasure that we get the opportunity to introduce Seattle to our new SexPop club night. Seattle is so rich with musical history and our only hope is to offer something new and ultimately be a part of this great city's diverse history. SexPop is our passion project and our opportunity to bring Seattle breaking Synth Pop, Nu-Disco and Indie Dance acts from around the globe. On April 19th we're bringing two of L.A.'s most talented producers in Goldroom and Touch Tone. If you're into sun-kissed electronic music with heavy doses of beached out dance vibes, then this is your jam. And, thats not all Support by Lights & Music DJs and Seattle king DJ mayor Sean Majors.

Goldroom Bio: Born from the simplicity of emotive choruses and lush electronic ornaments, Goldroom has transformed into a fascinating tale of modern music culture; a nostalgic romance of tropical textures and soulful rhythms.
After the success of his single "Fifteen", which found itself with over 300,000 plays on Soundcloud, the top spot on the Hype Machine charts, features on Pitchfork, Spinner, MTV, and spins on BBC Radio 1, few can say that they've had a year quite like Goldroom. In less than that amount of time, Goldroom's travels have seen him touring on stages in Asia, Europe, South America, Central America, Australia, and of course across the USA and Canada.
His follow up original single, "Sweetness Alive" features the luscious vocals of SLL (formerly known as Saint Lou Lou), a track that both beautifully compliments his debut, and begins to set the stage for the upcoming debut of Goldroom's live band performance over this spring's SXSW Festival in Austin, TX.
As an established remixer in his own right, Goldroom has gone on to work with such buzz-worthy acts as Niki & The Dove, Atlas Genius, Alpine, Poolside, and Gigamesh. Most notably, his remix for Niki & The Dove has been streamed more than 3 million times on YouTube and has been supported by The Magician, Aeroplane, Alex Metric and more.
Be on the lookout for even more from one of this year's greatest success stories, both on the road and in the studio. With a full length album already in the works, you can rest assured that this remarkable tale will find you on a steady hunt for the dance floor.
Touch Tone Bio: Our newest electro-pop crush Touch Tone has got us believing again. Former rocker Andrew Verner has spent the past few years transitioning from his rock band roots in the form of electronic act Short Circuit. More recently he's producing under the moniker Touch Tone, which seems to be taking on more of an electro-pop identity. We approve. Andrew shows off his production skills combining his slightly darker tendencies with the kind of light hearted synth touches that make for an endearing, dancey, pop sound. The kind of sound that could easily share a stage with the likes of Penguin Prison, Ghost Beach, or Monarchy to name a few. We're expecting 2013 to be a big year for him.
