ARTIST BIOGRAPHIES & MUSIC:
Plasmodium / KRAKT! / The Outer Limits
“I’m not the type to just sit there and listen, I want to be involved,” says Kristina Childs. “The first time I heard this music, I knew I wanted to play it.” Starting in 1999 with a mixture of house, techno and drum & bass, Childs quickly evolved her style into the eclectic mix of genres she still plays today. Never content to stay within the lines, her range of musical style has allowed her to share the stage with artists of many types, including Speedy J, Kevin Saunderson, Richard Devine, Akufen, Thomas Fehlmann, Christian Martin and Bassnectar.
As well as being a guest DJ at many clubs in the Seattle area and nearly half of the US, Childs has held over 8 residencies and headlined events in Europe and South America. She’s had terrestrial radio airplay in Canada and Germany as well as the US, is the curator of Plasmodium, co-creator of KRAKT and as a founding director of Decibel Festival played an integral role in making it one of North America’s premier electronic music festivals. Her diligence in the Seattle scene made her a popular Northwest DJ, combining excellent track selection and mixing skill with her signature floor-filling sound and energetic performances. In 2007 she won the Battle of the Mega-Mixes competition, successfully defended her title in 2008, and in 2009 was invited to judge alongside Pezzner and DJ Introcut.
Childs is a DJs DJ. She is known primarily for her techno sets, however you can hear her play everything from ambient to hip-hop, downtempo, electro, disco, breaks, new wave, funk or whatever else she feels like playing depending on the event. Childs was introduced to electronic music in 1995, but being involved in the punk scene, she remained a closet technohead until her first party in 1998. It was then she was introduced to deep house, and immediately knew this music would become a fundamental part of her life. It did, and within a year she was playing parties and after-hours around the Seattle area. Her debut release was 2004 in the form of a vocal appearance on Take’s Colossal Volume 1.
DJ DAVE LOWE
De La Creme Soundsystem / Body Language
Originally hailing from Dublin, Ireland, DJ Dave Lowe was resident at many local clubs in the mid-90s, including Rio, Lillie’s Bordello, System and The Pink Elephant, and was also known as “The Voice of Irish Dance Music Radio” for shows on various pirate radio stations, including Sunset FM, Kiss FM, Hot FM and Q95.
Now living in Seattle, Dave has taken to the decks once more, bringing a European edge to seamlessly-mixed house music sets that take you on a journey through funky, deep, electro, progressive and tech house. In the last five years Dave has played parties at such venues as Watergate in Berlin, The Standard in Los Angeles, the House of Blues in New Orleans, the Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle, and even a street party in San Francisco where he opened for Steve Aoki.

Recognized in San Francisco as a formative creator of the socially popular and musically talented Housemen collective, Joey Webb is among the elite handful of
people that seem inadvertently destined to weave a foundry of eclectic sounds that will appeal to the masses.
Discriminately, he was raised with a foundation for soul music when his father opened a local record store in 1965 – from this Joey took an enamored stance on
music and forthwith found his outlets for expression. It was only after 20 years of dance and pursuant to a major in dance did he find the need to create sounds and flow to appease the bodily movement he had worked with for so long.
Not long after his dabbles as a DJ, he was discovered by the likes of San Francisco’s legendary Devotion Records. Joey has surfaced as an extremely versatile DJ through the partnership he carries with local and international promoters. Although he is adaptable to the soulful house thread, his splash of flair lies in the rhythmic gestures of funk to tech, Brazilian to Afro-Haitian sonnets and his ability to convene multiple forms of sound, from nu-jazz to hip-hop and anything saucy in between.
J. Webb has played a wide-range of big sound clubs as well as a other venues scattered throughout California, Texas, Washington and New York. As a regular guest at San Francisco’s staple soulful house events Devotion and Remedy in the early 2000’s and more recently in the Seattle house scene, Joey has stretched his persona and positive vibe to prove his charisma as a performer. He is just as vibrant as the diverse collection of music he brings with him to every gig.
These days Joey calls Seattle home where he has had numerous guest appearances at Seattle’s own Flammable at Rebar, The Mix up at The Woods and various events at Monkey Loft.
Living in Seattle for over 4 years, Joey Webb is now a staple in the Seattle house music scene
