The Chase is the communal dream of Ash Williams, Caitlin Denny and Sky Madden- three club kids bent on pushing the boundaries in color, sound and movement. Resident DJ and host Ash Williams (Disco Horror) has a penchant for balearic oddities, anthemic diva house, and soulful deep techno. Visualist Caitlin Denny (Jst.Chillin.org) uses an amalgam of 70’s - 90's analog video synthesizers and live video feeds to create an interactive video outline of The Chase environment. Together, they support the guest performers featured at each party. This month we are celebrating our one-year anniversary with special guests:
AUSTIN CESEAR (LIVE - Public Information)
Oakland-based producer whose debut Cruise Forever on Public Information draws on equal parts techno, ambient and noise to create a beautifully cohesive voyage through an diverse electronic soundscape.
"To listen to Cruise Forever is to listen to a mind exploring, with no little flair and originality, the implications of a few basic propositions—many of them culled from the dance floor. Cesear is quite a find, and his future movements ought to be watched with interest." -Resident Advisor
BOBBY BROWSER (DJ - 100% Silk)
Having just released his second EP on 100% Silk, Still Browsing, Oakland-based producer Bobby Browser continues to refine his characteristically fun version of infectious sample-based house.
"What exactly Browser does differently is not easy to quantify, but part of it may lie in the fact that the soulful undercurrents and hardware roundness of Still Browsing are not the ultimate focus, but are rather simply part of the patchwork which makes the man's disarmingly inviting tracks." - XLR8R
PANAVISION (LIVE - PLAzA)
Panavision is the cosmic italo-house project of San Francisco-based producer Johan Churchill. Churchill also produces under the moniker PLAzA and just released a 7" for the project on Campari Records.
