Elevated Environment is particularly ecstatic to bring you a night of astrological space gangster funk on February 25 at the Whiskey Bar. Starting off the night will be GRIZ, who in our opinion… has been slaying it lately! Next up, another Elevated favorite, RussLiquid, followed by Goldrush and a new local to portland…GuttStar! Dont be afraid to put on your moon boots and head down, this is not a night to be missed!

A true pioneer and master of musical expression, GRiZ (Grant Kwiecinski) stands head-and-shoulders above the competition in terms of the sheer variety of his ever-evolving technical prowess. A tremendously passionate and soulful producer, GRiZ has a peerless knack for creating profoundly engaging melodies to offset the presence of his phenomenally designed bass.

Where many artists become mired in a over-simplified and standardized method of production for the sake of creative efficiency; GriZ has no qualms sacrificing speed for the sake of quality, technical diversity, and an unrelenting devotion to progress and dynamism.

Set apart from other up-and-coming West Coast bass music producers by his extensive world-touring history and performance experience, Russ Liquid brings a much needed injection of melody and emotion to the thriving dance floor community. Classically trained on the piano, trumpet, saxophone and flute, Russ Liquid applies the colorful tones of instrumental music to the realm of beats with dance floor-rocking results. This talented producer has found an entirely new palette to ¬Å“paint¬Â with, and now he seeks to bridge the gap between classical and modern music with new electronic technology and sonic possibilities.

    I would love to win a pair of tickets to this show, as GRiZ, RLS, Guttstar, Goldrush are all in my top 10 favorite artists! Much love!

    When Griz came to Bend last year I spent 2 straight months pretending a knew something about event promotion to try to bring him to PDX the Friday before his show in Bend. Hahah I even created a flier and emailed veneus desperate to make it happen. So glad that my pipe dream has finally been realized by those with far more experience in event planning! So pumped for this show and would love to win tix for me and my lady!

    Just for laughs haha:

    So stoked on this lineup, Headtron has been solid gold of late. Would love to go, but I’m broke!

    I am truly a disciple of Headtron, spreading the good news to all who will listen. [insert reverent preacher voice here] Let there be soul, let there be bass, all living in gloooorious harmony! Griz is truly the master of blending eclectic samples, including killer big band riffs, with hope y’all brought your dancing shoes basslines. I’m looking forward to needing a new pair after this night. BUMP

    If I win, we will confirm the best glitter bomb to hit Portland, on the dancefloor! This includes some rump shaking galore from our whole crew.

    I’ve saw Russ Liquid at the last Emerg-N-See festival and was absolutely blown away. Both Gold Rush and Guttstar have been killing it lately as well, but GriZ is one of my favorite producers right now and I’d do just about anything to get a ticket or two to this show, because I’m a broke joke and don’t know if I’d be able to even go without getting hooked-up somehow. Please help to make this an amazing night for me!
