SLINKY KINKY BEATS
Scott Sterling brings a deep love of rhythm, drums, and dance to his distinctive style of electronic fusion. An expert percussionist specializing in the tamborines and framedrums, he weaves together intricate hand percussion with contemporary sounds into high-energy grooves, equally inspirational to the dancefloor and the on-stage performer. Drawing inspiration primarily from the old music of Europe and the Mediterranean, his music is a unique alchemy of ancient traditions, tribal rhythms, and sensual pagan atmosphere.
Originating in San Francisco's crucible of bellydance, bass culture, and world music fusion, Drumspyder has come into his own as an original producer, building a substantial catalog of work on the Caravan, Dakini, and Desert Trax labels, and releasing two EPs of original music in 2015. He is a prolific remixer, lending his signature live percussion and melodic touch to the Desert Dwellers, Deya Dova, David Starfire, as well as various traditional ensembles. His music has been featured in numerous dance DVDs and theatrical productions.
2015 and 2016 saw Drumspyder lighting up festival stages throughout the US and Canada, including Imagine, Symbiosis, Konnexion, Atmosphere, Blessed Coast, 3 Days of Light, and many more.

Residing deep in the Weeeerd near Portland Or, Ian McIntosh aka DeafChild has been a staple of the left coast underground music community going on 15 years now. Working tirelessly to promote forward thinking and intelligent dance music for the discerning psychedelic adventurer, his talents have seen him performing at some of the most memorable events in the North American underground. From the mountains of NW WA and OR, into the jungles of Mexico, the beaches of Hawaii and Belize, all the way to some of the largest stages at Burningman and everywhere in between. Having developed a style that straddles the hard to define spaces between acid, techno and psytrance, his sound has provided the vehicle of energy needed to become that rare successful crossover artist between the left coast's house/techno and psytrance communities. Born from the dancefloor and with his heart still firmly rooted in the belief that music is the most powerful healing force on our beautiful planet, each set is a chance to experiment with the power of our collective heart vibration as we spiral and dance our way into greater form. Current projects include heading the SunriseSocialClub artist collective based out of PDX, and curating the Get Weeerd series of events taking place around the NW showcasing local and international acid music producers and djs. Past event creations have included starting and coordinating the Earthdance NW hub event for the Oregon, Washington, Idaho area of the country, as well co-producing many of the NW's most memorable underground family style gatherings throughout the 2000's.
The sub bass that ShermGerm produces is hard to compare to anyone else's, and that's just the beginning of the absolute journey that this cat's tunes will take you on. ShermGerm's melodies are both thoughtful and funky and use sounds so original that they are at times completely unidentifiable, you just know you love it when you hear it. His wobbles, strings and percussion are to be awed and his tunes will leave you somewhere between deep philosophical thought and absolute rage.

I am a full time artist born and raised in Washington state. Art is my driving force in my life and has been since before I can remember. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Fine art from the Northwest College of Art in Poulsbo, I attended Bates Technical College and Tacoma Community college. I have done many charity driven events, volunteerism and I am extremely active. When I am not doing art, I am socializing, gardening, enjoying the outdoors somewhere, lifting weights, traveling, exploring, being spontaneous. I live for fun! I like anything that is a challenge and always try to choose the road less traveled, since I believe that the outcome is always more than you imagined...My art is best described as psychedelic, visionary, abstract, expressionist, geometric, colorful and usually WAY out there!
Artist Statement: It all started in 2013. With no formal training in art, I only discovered that I was an artist when I found myself at Burning Man, a week long art and music event in the Nevada desert. Artists were constructing and painting walls and sharing spaces. I was given a wall. I was tentative at first but threw myself into painting. "Psychedelic Cross" was the result, a large, vibrant, multicolored work... but a temporary one. I slept for a few hours and awoke to find it had been painted over. With this loss I began to revisit the recent loss of my entire family. Could I heal myself with my creativity? I picked up a one-inch brush and for hours threw paint with pain and anger, using color to process it and heal. I finished painting, stepped back and turned to see what I had created. I smiled, laughed, and cried all at once realizing I had unlocked a hidden artist. I came home and converted my living room into my new art studio. I have been invited back to paint murals at Burning Man’s Center Camp in 2014,2015, and 2016. I have been showing art locally, live painting and mural painting at festivals for the last 3 years.

Charlette Webby began her artistic journey with simple grayscale sketches in the concrete jungle that is southern California. With hopes and dreams of a more sustainable and connected community she sought out cooler climates in the PNW. The empowering community she sought and found gave her the acceptance and spark to see art as less of a hobby and more of an inter-dimensional gateway to the experiences she had always dreamed of. The abundance of nature and life in Seattle gave color to her drawings and paint to her brushes, transforming her into the neon mermaid she is today. Charlette enjoys combining electric UV color schemes with natural and bare negative space. This is symbolic in so many ways of how she too embodies the natural space around her. The objective of all of Charlette's artistic ventures is to exchange energy and continue the creative momentum we are all capable of tapping in to.
