September 20th: DJ Having Sex

DJ Having Sex is the alias of Seattle's Dani Loose, one of city's rising talents and selectors on the underground electronic music scene. Starting out playing college parties and empty bar nights in Olympia, they migrated to Seattle in 2016 for the robust queer nightlife scene, and they’ve quickly become an active and outspoken member of the queer techno world that operates in the shadow of corporate rave culture. Over the past few years, Dani has opened for acclaimed underground artists such as D.Tiffany, Lone, Physical Therapy, and Octo Octa, and has cut their teeth weekend after weekend playing the Kremwerk complex and various underground parties throughout the city.
