Friction Friday

Join us March 16th for a ladies night of bass.

ALCHERA (Beltek Foundation)

Alchera is a staple of the Maine underground music scene moving dance floors for since 1999. Her background as a dancer influences her sets to ebb and flow for the crowd and tells a story to keep you moving. She is one of the founders of Beltek Festival and is versed in many genres.

CORBIN (Resonant Sound)

Corbin has been spinning tunes since 2001 with several DJ residencies around Portland. She has diverse experience in the New England underground music scene and particularly Drum & Bass. Her variety of interests and influences have crafted a woman that connects with the dance floor and delivers a selection of the dark, vocal, and bass-heavy tunes crafted into sets with lots of love.

G-FORCE (Resonant Sound, New England Junglists, Scientific Sound, G-Force Productions)

Armed with a stack of Jungle records and her brother-in-law’s hand-me-down Stranton direct drive turntables, New York City native G-Force taught herself how to spin in 1999. After moving to Maine in 2007, she found a group of local DJ’s that took her in and became her mentors and cohorts. She first played -out at a local open decks night, and regional and major festivals gigs like Maine’s legendary music festival “Beltek” rolled in shortly after that. Since then G -Force has had the opportunity to play some of the longest running stateside weekly events like Elements (Boston) and Torque (Orlando). G-Force’s specialty is obviously Jungle/Drum & Bass, however, she is well-versed across the full spectrum of electronic music from Tech House to Hip Hop. For the past four years, she has hosted a monthly event in Portland, ME that showcases regional and local DJ talent from nearly every underground genre, as well as supporting her crew’s and their shows throughout New England.
