    Thursday July 5, 2012.....Coming in all the way from Milwaukee, WI.....Jonn Hawley!!! Also returning to the THERAPY decks, some of our favorite local House DJ's Nate Laurence of HOTDISH and Jake Encinas!! This show is extra special, because we are going to open up 2 ROOMS for your listening pleasure!! **The Front Bar will be OPEN DECKS from 8-11pm, and we will have a sign-up list for times once we get closer to the show. **The Back Lounge will be open from 10-2am with Opening Sets from Matthew Moxx and Santo Spaceship! And as always, * NO COVER! * 18+ * Drink and food specials all night! * Jonn Hawley - Soul Fuel Recordings* Jonn made his DJ debut in 1991 and has not only helped to define the Milwaukee underground dance movement but has taken his passion and talent all over the globe to cities such as New York, Toronto, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Miami and even as far away as Hawaii and Ireland. Wherever and whenever he plays there is guaranteed feedback from those who dance to his beats for the first time that he is very gifted; hearing him behind the decks is always an electrifying experience. Jonn began working on production in early 2000, and has achieved massive acclaim while earning an elite position among the current class of deep house innovators. In 2002, he began releasing tracks using the aliases Under Origin and 5900 West; he also established Foundation 75, his production studio. In 2003 Hawley launched his label, Soul Fuel Recordings, at the Winter Music Conference in Miami, Florida. Since then his work has appeared on numerous underground house labels. Jonn spends the majority of his time in the studio and his strong work ethic mixes together well with a stellar combination of enthusiasm, talent and focus. His Soul Dweller EP on Large Music was a highlight of 2010 and received widespread critical praise and support from renowned DJs and even secured a position in the top 20 downloads chart at traxsource for many weeks on end. “My first EP on Large increased my profile and level of respect tenfold“says Jonn, “I found myself suddenly getting recognized on an international scale.” For Jonn this is just the beginning as he vows to not only bring attention to his hometown but to the music he adores. “House music is my life” Jonn laments, “It keeps me grounded and inspired with a true message of unity and joy.” * Nate Laurence * Nate has always been a DJ first. Once known as DJ Unity – a patron of former Minneapolis RAVE troupe “UNIK Communications” – Nate has labored for his place in house music. A career that developed over the course of a decade – largely behind the scenes – has now become impossible to ignore. Amid absurd energy behind the decks – layered with dexterous turntablism – Nate impresses even the most cynical critics one at a time “leaving wows in his wake.” Today, Nate remains active with gigs reaching as far as Europe, Southern Africa, and throughout the United States. Though national and international bookings keep him busy, in 2009 Nate fulfilled an enduring aspiration and true privilege by becoming a resident DJ at the legendary First Avenue Nightclub in Minneapolis. After living in his second home of Cape Town, South Africa in 2001, Nate focused on production. Since then, his discog has grown at a reputable pace. With rookie releases on Flatpack Traxx, Funkfield, and Control Recordings, Nate proved his aptitude as a gifted producer. His distinct tech-meets-Chicago house production style has continued to mature, signing EPs with Spatula City, Guesthouse, Love Network, Onethirty, Mindtravel, and Flapjack Records to name but a few. He has also provided remixes for some of the biggest names in EDM: DJ Dan, Inland Knights, Chuck Love, Bryan Jones, and many others. In 2007, Nate partnered with Chicago-based beatmaker, Scrubfish (Scott Kammer) and together they continue to reach Top100 lists worldwide while each new release continues to outshine subsequent releases. In 2008 Nate created “HotDish.” HotDish is both a collaborative of DJs (Nate and good friend J Matthews) and an event crew that has become an illustrious house movement in Minneapolis. Finally, in 2011 Nate began a new philanthropic record label, Pluralistic Records. Pluralistic Records releases distinct and unique tracks that cross the boundaries between Chicago, Detroit, disco house, and tech house...or simply, house. **JAKE ENCINAS ** Jake Encinas has been spinning House, Progressive and Electronic Dance for over 10 years and on two continents. Receiving a formal DJing and Promoting education from the Technics DJ Academy at School of Sound Recording in Manchester, England, Jake cut his teeth in Manchester clubs like Font, Sound Bar, and Orange Grove before returning to the United States. Since returning to Minneapolis, Jake has held multiple club residencies including The Lounge and Visage, as well as countless Guest DJ appearances at Solera, Foundation http://www.facebook.com/jake.encinas http://www.twitter.com/jakeencinas http://www.jakeencinas.com/ * BLAKLITE * (DJ Storm & DJ Flo) We are your weekly hosts for HOUSE THERAPY here at Asian Taste.

    **Friday May 25th 2012 ***Nate Laurence & J Matthews also Jordash. Econ. & Dusty J ****Powered by DEP *****21 + @ The Nestor Come set sail with HotDish and friends. HotDish is the 1st Saturday of every month at the INFAMOUS First Avenue Nightclub for BLACK (catch BLACK every Saturday). They specialize in house music with local and guest DJs each month. Residents: Nate Laurence & J Matthews! Since this weekend technically kicks off summer, we thought it would be fun to have a boat theme. Come dressed in your best boating gear. Captains for the night:: ♛Nate Laurence & J Matthews (HotDish)♛ MPLS Hear Ye...all party people of the frozen north: HotDish – that unmistakably Minnesotan hodgepodge of plentiful funky ingredients – is now serving all with a gluttonous appetite. HotDish is both a collaborative of djs (Nate Laurence & J. Matthews) and a Minneapolis-based event crew. HotDish values the diversity of EDM in the Midwest, yet it is our aim to provide a space for – above all else – funky, new-school, and soulful house music in the Twin Cities, which has historically been displaced by the thinning culture of our region. As an event, HotDish showcases talent that is pioneering and unifying – both local and international icons of this genre! Our past events hosted some of the best funky-house parties in the Twin Cities throughout 2006 to the present - from Ricardo Rae (Australia) to The Sound Republic (Chicago) to multiple local events that stirred fresh life into the local dance music scene. The HotDish Mission: to provide a venue for the HotDish sound while fostering the local scene in a spirit of collaboration and unity. Guiding principles make us aware of malicious social structures so we encourage both diversity and philanthropy. We reach out to foster the underground EDM and hip-hop cultures of the Twin Cities to preserve who we are. Your HotDish hosts include Nate Laurence (a rave-era veteran, intoxicating DJ, and one of the most highly anticipated new talents in the international new-school underground house music scene - on high profile labels such as Spatula City, Guesthouse Music, and Chicago's Control Recordings) and J. Matthews (a Twin Cities "beatopia" original and Boston staple who showcased his talents at high-profile venues including First Avenue, Quest, and the long-running "Bump" at the Phoenix Landing in Boston, MA.).
