Orphan Radio is a record label and radio station in Georgetown. Founded by Seattle-based Sage Redman and London-based Joe Gillick, the goal was to create a pirate-radio culture in Seattle similar to the one out of London. Settled adjacent to the Equinox Studios art gallery, Orphan meshes the artistic culture of Georgetown with the local music talent of Seattle, often welcoming traveling artists stopping by in the city, such as DJ Manny of Teklifelast month. Every weekend, Orphan broadcasts radio shows from 10am to 3pmwhich correlate to night streams in Europe.
On Thursday April 26th at The Crocodile, Lapalux of Brainfeeder Records will headline, blending ambient and IDM influenced beats with R&B samples and ethereal textures.
Left-field producer Daedelus will also make an appearance, demonstrating his eclectic prowess in sound selection and virtuosic live performance. As the Abe Lincoln of DJ’s he is extremely fun to watch.
On Saturday April 28th at Re-bar Seattle, DJ Python will be headlining, fusing Deep House, Dancehall and Trance into a hypnotic mix.
For both of these shows, Orphan founders and resident DJs Sage and Joe will also be performing as the creative duo “FKL”. If you enjoy groups like The xx, come see the chemistry between Sage’s sensuous vocals and Joe’s industrial production.
Be sure to not miss this diverse selection of artists coming to Seattle next week, curated by Orphan Radio.
