DANCE THERAPY

Dance therapy is a type of therapy that uses movement to help individuals achieve emotional, cognitive, physical, and social integration. Beneficial for both physical and mental health, dance therapy can be used for stress reduction, disease prevention, and mood management.

In addition, dance therapy offers increased muscular strength, coordination, mobility, and decreased muscular tension. Dance therapy can be used with all populations and with individuals, couples, families, or groups. In general, dance therapy promotes self-awareness, self-esteem, and a safe space for the expression of feelings.

WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING

While you were sleeping explore the edges, more experimental sub genres of electronic music. Join us even first Saturday of the months for a this special night to listen to and learn more about the depths of electronic music.

214

Chris Roman, aka 214, has a habit of getting lost in his studio, which happens to be tucked into the same mystical foothills as the David Lynch town of Twin Peaks, a location whose presence looms across much of Roman’s audio narrative, deftly playing foil to his creative heritage as a Miami native grounded in that area’s electro scene.

Since his production debut in 2002 Roman has cultivated a substantial discography of future dance floor thump and heady sci fi vapors with releases on notable labels such as Frustrated Funk, Klakson, Central Processing Unit (CPU), Shipwrec, 20:20 Vision, and Touchin Bass. He has also appeared on three Fabric compilations, including an exclusive track commissioned for Steffi’s highly lauded Fabric 94 mix.

Though clubs all over the world have hosted 214’s hardware-heavy live sets, he’s also known for working dance floors with dexterous precision for anyone lucky enough to catch him behind the decks.

Technique can be refined, and skill can be learned, but impeccable taste is rare and elusive. That’s why Marc Schneider is your favouíte DJ’s favourite DJ.

There are DJs, and then there are “DJ’s DJs”—the influential jocks who break tunes, unearth obscure must-haves, spark off new trends, and breathe new life into the artform at every opportunity. Marc Schneider has been the embodiment of the latter for over two decades. The Hamburg native began amassing his personal collection of DJ weapons amid the heyday of ‘90s German raves, with his early appearances feeding the folklore of legendary parties such as Love Parade and the original Tresor club.

As the longtime gatekeeper for music distributor Word and Sound, he has overseen virtually every worthwhile piece of vinyl to enter the country. He continues to apply his tastemaker status and veteran knowledge in the DJ booth through regular invitations to Panorama Bar (Berlin), Fabric (London), Eleven (Tokyo), Rex Club (Paris), The Bunker (NYC), Bassani (Tbisili), Smart Bar (Chicago), Culture Box (Copenhagen), Watergate (Berlin), Electric Pickle (Miami). That’s not to mention his long-running affiliation with Hamburg’s PAL and the Golden Pudel Club, as well as the infamous annual event Fusion Festival.

With his sporadic yet highly-valued releases and remixes for labels like Circus Company, Silver Network, New Kanada and Word and Sound’s inhouse imprint Was Not Was, Marc has endeared himself to record-buying heads over a number of years. Similarly, it was little surprise for those in the know to learn that Marc had been secretly at the helm of the formerly anonymous cult label Story, the unassuming vinyl-only imprint of quality deep cuts that has boasted the likes of Anton Zap, Cottam and XDB on its roster since 2008.

Technique can be refined, and skill can be learned, but impeccable taste is rare and elusive. That’s why Marc Schneider is your favouíte DJ’s favorite DJ.

DISCOTEKA: PETER CROCE

Discoteka is our Disco event series, digging deep into nu disco, funk, afro beat and disco.

Peter Croce is a Detroit-based DJ, producer, and head of the boutique vinyl label Rocksteady Disco, which he founded in 2014. A true personality DJ and digger, Peter’s sound favors soul and spirit over genres and rules; he endeavors to carry the DIY soundsystem ethos of party hosts a la David Manusco and Aba Shanti-I into the next generation. His career highlights have included Ron Trent’s invitation to play alongside him and François K, and opening for the legendary Grace Jones.

His debut release "Revival" quickly sold out worldwide, earning broad organic support ranging from Mr. Scruff, Soul Clap, Jamie 3:26, and The Blessed Madonna to Kanye West, and is still heard at parties around the world. A jazz- trained bassist and prolific re-editor (usually under his Mr. PC alias), he artfully tailors classics and re-creates future gems for his dance floors. In addition to his own imprint, his releases can be found on Industry Standard, Razor-N- Tape, Soundway, On The Corner, and Kampana.

Peter maintains a demanding schedule between residencies in Detroit and Chicago, as well as appearances in Tokyo, Seoul, Mexico City, New York, Miami, London, Paris, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C., and more. He is also the label manager of MotorCity Wine Recordings.

TESTAROSSA

Welcome to Testarossa our monthly Techno night that takes place every last Saturday of the month where we go heavy into Techno and Electronic genres.

Star Eyes is synonymous with raw underground bass music. A founding member of the world-renowned Trouble & Bass crew, currently at the helm of the Chaos Clan, this NYC bat girl causes mayhem with DJ sets and tracks that swiftly connect the dots between regional American bass sounds and the hardcore continuum. Though her style moves across breakbeat, grime, bassline, electro and beyond, her aesthetic is continually inspired by jungle, old-skool hardcore, and the warehouse parties in which she was raised.

Star Eyes is originally from Los Angeles, where she began DJing at age 15 – her name soon became synonymous with California jungle scene, and she was a longtime resident at the pioneering female-led drum 'n' bass night Eklectic in San Francisco. Eventually she founded America's first UK garage duo Syrup Girls (with DJ Siren) and moved to NYC, where she became a part of the Trouble & Bass crew & record label, who were the first to bring Skream & Benga, Night Slugs, Rusko, Elijah & Skilliam, Flava D and more to NYC; in 2009, she began releasing her first original productions and remixes.

Since T&B disbanded in 2015, she has run her own digital label and party series called Chaos Clan. Star Eyes is also an alumni of Red Bull Music Academy, a former radio host on RBMA/Red Bull Radio and a noted music journalist. She has played at Outlook Festival, Sonár, Fabric, EDC, Burning Man, Stealth, Nowadays, Elsewhere and beyond. With world-class skills and an irreverent attitude, Star Eyes has definitely earned the title "Brooklyn’s queen of heavy bass.”

DESTINATION: MEDELLIN

Braindance from Latino América. Born and raised in the mountains of Medellín. Verraco is one of the heads of TraTraTrax, and Insurgentes, labels that have become key platforms for Latinx sonic hustlers creating records that range from atmospheric textures for the mind to breaks and dembow x tribal for the arses. In 2020 the Colombian released his debut album, 'Grial’, a sound collision pulled from the South that carries with it a sonic fiction called Mestizo—Futurismo.

Reviews and journalists have described it as "Colombian electronica of the highest order.

"A bold, colorful and inventive statement of polyrhythmic beat-making and lush atmospheres." Or "a cue from the well-known legends of this style, but makes it his own with subtle details and an outsider mentality. Elements of IDM, D&B, ambient and techno collide on Grial."

DANNY DAZE

Steeped in Miami’s B-boy culture, it was classic electro & Miami bass that conceived Danny Daze's love for the experimental Dutch electro & Detroit Techno scenes of the 90’s. Labels like Schematic in Miami, Interdimensional Transmissions from Detroit & Viewlexx out of The Hague set the foundation for Daze.

Daniel Gomez adopted his Daze moniker early on at his mother’s suggestion. Practicing on a set-up she bought him, Daze was spinning at weddings by age 14, funneling his earnings into vinyl to play raves on the side. That eventually led to producing his first tracks in 2004 on a cracked version of Fruity Loops and later that year, he jumpstarted a electro / techno white label called Omniamm.

Daze’s risk-taking & punk approach is at the core of everything he does and it’s a big part of the ethos of his current label, Omnidisc. "We're not searching for chart topping hits. We’re more interested in curating a catalog of music you’ll remember when you walk out the door. We seek out tracks that are as raw as possible & welcome imperfections. We love the charm of an unpolished record”, says Daze. It’s also this freeform & experimental approach together with an element of surprise that sets him apart from the pack as both a DJ & Producer.

As a DJ, he prefers to express his versatility across long sets. He is known to cut & weave from Electro to Techno into Italo Disco, into a record by Yazoo deliberately intended to provoke a reaction. “I once played a Paula Abdul record at Berghain… basically, it’s like it or leave it,” says Daze. As a producer, his output ranges from releases on Kompakt’s Speicher series, to remixes on Phantasy, Comeme, Monkeytown & more… but he also reaches far beyond techno & has created original runway soundtracks for award winning American streetwear designer John Elliott & the Australian brand Song for the Mute. "I’m obsessed with the detailed manipulation of audio. It’s at the core of how I make music & I constantly feel the need to involve myself with projects that challenge & allow me to think out of the box... whether it’s creating a single recognizable noise for the new MacBook, or an advert for a fashion campaign blending original music with sound design,” says Daze.

Danny Daze’s radical approach to preserving music’s integrity while breaking its boundaries may seem volatile, but it’s not random. “I’ve always gone against the grain & it’s important for everything I do to feel authentic. There isn't much difference between Daniel Gomez and Danny Daze.”

ABOUT.US

In 2021, a group of friends were out late one night in Portland, looking for a night club to listen and dance to amazing house music artists and DJs.

We weren’t just looking for any club. We were looking for a house music oasis, a house music night club. A place that consistently embodies the club culture we grew up with, where house and electronic music is enjoyed by everyone, without intolerance or judgement. But… we couldn’t find it in the way we wanted.

We were an eclectic mix. Passionate house music DJs influenced by the European club culture and night clubs, event curators and long time DJs from Portland, and transplants from all over the world who now call Portland home.

One day, we came together to create a new night club concept based on our experiences and our love of house music. As an eclectic bunch of house music lovers, we know that diversity has always been at the heart of club culture and house music. Celebrating and respecting everyone regardless of religion, race, physical ability, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity is the foundation of club culture.  

After months of creative planning, we decided to contribute to the house music scene in Portland in a very special way and open a club called No Requests.

At No Requests, we follow a radically open dance floor and door policy. We ensure that all of our house music events embody the club culture that we love, believe in, and want to foster, while keeping our guests as safe as possible during this time of ambiguity.

Our commitment is to consistently showcase the best Portland-based house music DJs as well as regional (Oregon), national, and international house music DJs, while celebrating diversity and equality, and constantly innovating the experiences and services at No Requests.

And by doing so, Portland's club culture and house music scene will be globally recognized as one of the top destinations for house and electronic music.

No Requests, and no regrets.

JOIN.LIVE

We will livestream all of our shows from the club in Portland. Tune in.

The Dust Bunnies
It was in 2016 when Portland was introduced to what would soon be among their most charismatic DJ duos to hit the city in a long time. Spending years carving their blueprint in New York and San Francisco, Gen Ariella and Dakota Ushigome built a strong foundation for what would eventually be the powerhouse that is The Dust Bunnies.

Following their PDX headline debut for Candy Land in 2016, the bunnies skyrocketed to popularity and were soon being heard regularly around town at many notable productions such as No Vacancy, Whiskey Bar, the Local Hero Events, a monthly residency at the Local Lounge, as well as joining the long-time standing DJ and artist collective Rose City Underground.

Heavily influenced by UK tech House, their vocal heavy sets have been driving dance floors with high energy since.  Currently you can find the Dust Bunnies performing around Oregon and at their Residency with Portland’s new Underground House Music venue No Requests, as well as RCU showcases that spread throughout the region.
