Seattle techno/house collective Sweatbox will be celebrating its fourth anniversary April 21 at Electric Tea Garden with another of its notorious 12-hour marathon parties. (I'm telling you this now so you have time to rest up for it.) Berlin-via-Detroit DJ Derek Plaslaiko will headline with a four-hour set; co-founder Jonny Romero will return to Seattle from his new home in Brooklyn to join Ctrl_Alt_Dlt on the decks for a tag-team four-hour stint; Sh6rl6s6 (Second Sight, KEXP) and Roddimus & Eugene Fauntleroy round out the bill. Action goes from 10 pm to 10 am; $10, 21+.
To whet your appetite, Sweatbox co-founder Ctrl_Alt_Dlt (aka former Stranger music intern Chris Aldrich) has lovingly crafted a 75-minute mix of trippy, minimal techno and house cuts that exemplifies Sweatbox's aesthetics.
(Check the promo video after the cut.)
