Downtempo, space disco, house, tech, b-boy era electro, hip hop, soul, and funk; if you can move, Orchard Lounge will back you up. Formed in Chicago in 2000, OL is the collective of Ben Silver, Spencer Lokken and Bethany Lokken. This versatile trio has enlightened dance floors nationwide with their eclectic mixes, from sunset chill-out to bass-dropping tech house, and an array of other futuristic sounds.

Theirs is a democratic mission: to expose as many people as possible to the artists they admire and respect. What sets Orchard Lounge apart from other club DJs is, well, you won’t always find them in the club. In recent years they’ve built a reputation as a hard-touring festival act and set-break crowd favorite, frequently supporting The Disco Biscuits, Sound Tribe Sector 9, The New Deal and Future Rock.

They’ve also played alongside heavyweights like Bonobo, Lindstrom, DJ T, Jamie Jones, Booka Shade, Metro Area, and Kevin Yost. As The Disco Biscuits’ de facto hype men (and woman), they’ve had the rare pleasure of performing for thousands at world famous venues like Red Rocks and the Hammerstein Ballroom, constantly keeping the crowd engaged with a unique mix of turntable and live-band improvisation.

    I’d love the free tickets because the Refuge is my favorite spot and I want to show it to my best friend who is visiting from the East Coast. Let’s show him what Portland has to offer!

    Well, I’ve already got my ticket to get my face melted by my home state (UM’s from Southbend, IN originally) jam heroes at the Roseland, so we might as well keep the party goin at Refuge. Orchard Lounge sounds SICK from their description and I’ve partied with local cats Hoya, Sporeganic, and Mr. Wu before, so I KNOW they bring it. Plus I’ve heard a very interesting rumour that some (ALL?!) of the Umph boys may make drop in at this shindig!

    i would love to see Orchard Lounge’s creation of boundless beats and electro-fied elegance that transcends the normal wavelengths we currently have available to our ears in the pacNW! plus, the last time i saw them i swore they were doing eye surgery on stage and want a chance to debunk this fear i’ve had since Camp a few years back…

  12. Steve Andzuzewski March 21, 2012 at 3:55 pm #

    I want to see OL in PDx so that I can make sure that they are as awesome in the PacNW as they are in Mexico and at SmartBar!!!

    Feet are needing the beat,
    Free tickets would be sweet.
    Room mate super broke.
    He’s got no job-no joke.
    And now I am broke, too.
    Trying to pull us through.
    I’d really love to dance
    Myself right into a trance.
    Pipeline, give me the chance!!
