Initially best known running Club Chemtrail, the aesthetic laden Portland-based party, SPF666 broke into the world of production in mid-2014 with a bang, releasing the Scorpion Cache EP on his newly-minted imprint, Club Chemtrail Records. Rife with dubs that had been making rounds as secret weapons of taste-making DJs, the EP proved worthy of both the hype and the wait. Scorpion Cache’s overwhelmingly positive reception established SPF666 as both an exciting and unique figure in the new grime scene, as well as a producer already shaping the emerging sounds of tomorrow’s dancefloors.
As SPF’s productions present percussive workouts of interplays of dissonance and space in club-ready frameworks, his high-energy dj sets follow suit– offerings of boundary-pushing sounds mixed with a deft knack for accessibility, consistently keeping the dancefloor full. While holding his near two year residency at Club Chemtrail, he has hosted and supported some of the most forward-thinking artists in dance music, and has brought his transgressive-yet-party-pleasing sets across the US, from Los Angeles to New York, leaving a growing following in his wake. But it’s not just fans who are impressed with this new producer– SPF666 has found strong recognition within the new grime scene, garnering praise from Bok Bok, Murlo, Rabit, and Neana, as well as the attention from prominent artists across the board: Feadz, Dre Skull, Total Freedom, Wildlife!, and Astronomar join others in expressing their support for his tracks.
This work has only begun for SPF666, as the single “Warworld” featuring Mike G just dropped on Bot/Astronomar’s Main Course Label in July 2014, followed by a slew of remixes via Car Crash Set, #FEELINGS, and Knightwerk Records. As he readies his next EP, SPF has already picked up a variety of tour dates in throughout ‘14, hopping from LA’s Mustache Mondays to a 2 week mini-tour in northeast North America, no doubt showing his growing fanbase that he is not just an extremely exciting addition to the US dance music scene, but a name to associate with what’s to come.
