Composer of mercurial soundtracks for uncertain times, Thavius Beck conjoins various strains of electronic music to arrive at a daringly ambitious sound. He recently joined a lineup of local artists to celebrate black electronic music and benefit KBOO at Holocene in Portland, Oregon.
Mr. Beck has received recognition in The Wire, Spin, and Urb for his solo releases under the moniker Adlib, the Labwaste project with fellow LA artist Subtitle, his recent production for fellow Mush artist K-The-I???, his early work with Global Phlowtations, numerous guest appearances, and producing for and touring in support of and accompanying Saul Williams. An exceptional programmer, engineer and multi-instrumentalist, Thavius Beck’s many talents allow him to take a song from idea to completion without ever having to leave his cluttered studio.

Portland wouldn't let Show Me the Pink run away forever. With a return long overdue, the band performed at Branx with Bitchin' Summer and Full Face Riot.
The house was packed and by the time Show Me the Pink took to the stage the venue had been warmed up and flashing bicycle lights prepared the dancefloor.
Dirty X-Rated played a set during the Beat Off at Holocene.
Dirty came to KBOO's studio for the Plugged In show previewing the Beat Off.
What is a Beat Off? Well maybe not what you think.
Recently, Holocene hosted one of a series of these where electronic musicians are given a variety of short samples of music and are challenged to come up with some dope beats in one hour. Wanna hear what it sounds like?
Those who participated include Techno Mike, Quiet Countries, Magnum PA, Dirty X Rated, Shrubbery, Demi Batard, Cutter Filtoff, Graintable, Demdranger / John Henry, Rude Boy, The DJ Nealie Neal, and Sedell Jones who was voted the winner of the battle.
Special thanks to organizer Erik Beats for setting this up.
As a preview of the upcoming Beat Off at Holocene, I hosted the organizer of the event and a few electronic artists who will be competing. We even had our own mini beat off beat battle on the air.
On the show was Beat Off organizer Erik Beats, Dirty X Rated, The New Plastic, and Trick-Assed Marxist. We heard some of their work, including some of their past competitions, and then finished the program with a beat battle challenge using the same samples that will be used for the Beat Off next week. You'll have to listen to find out who was voted the winner!

On Friday, February 7th, Plugged In on KBOO was proud to have JAK play a special 2-hour set for our pledge drive special.
JAK has been playing and producing quality underground techno and house music since the late 90s. However, it’s Jack’s studio output over the past few years on labels such as Torque, Fade Records, Subspec, 530Techno, SlapJaxx and his own SubSensory Recordings that’s advancing his reputation as a U.S. artist to watch.
JAK’s original tracks and remixes have hit the top 50 sales charts on leading outlets. His tunes have been remixed by the likes of Audio Injection, Adam Jay, Mark Broom and Angel Alanis. His label SubSensory Recordings celebrated 5 years and 50 releases in late 2012 and continues to earn plays by may of techno’s greats such as Juan Atkins, Carl Cox and Slam.
