March 9th, 2012 will mark KR’s 5th year throwing our Knightriders’ MicroRave Parties.
You may recall a hot, sweaty, ruckus affair flashing back to 2007, our first ever ‘Knight Rider’ theme party deep in Pike Place market’s underground Alibi Room. Absolute madness with Jerry Abstract, Recess, M’chateau and Travis Baron. But let’s not forget the visuals by Pixel Flip topping it all off with a mash-up of clips from the original Knight Rider television show!
After 5 Years, 1 Record Label & 40+KRparties later (not counting our multiple weekly events) KR is supper pumped to present KR5: Knightriders’ 5 year anniversary party & KRlabel Launch w/ Kenny Larkin. As some of you know KR has been working for almost two years to develop and launch our new Seattle imprint: KRecordings. The time has come and we are planing the official label launch to take place at KR5 – March 9th, 2012 at LoFi Lounge Seattle.
We would like to make this our most outrageous and memorable event to date! So we invite you to join in the celebration and spread the word here on facebook.
Then check out the label!
is distinctly one of the world’s most premiere leaders of Detroit techno in the electronic music industry today.
As a producer, DJ and remixer, Kenny has mesmerized crowds and fans across the globe for the last twenty years with his music. Since 1990, Larkin has cemented his name in the pages of dance music history along with fellow Detroit Techno music mates, Derrick May, Carl Craig and Kevin Saunderson.
Kenny’s list of achievements and discography are groundbreaking to say the least. Highlights include his first full album, Azimuth (released 1994), which was deemed by Street Sound Magazine to be one of the top 20 techno CD’s of all time.
His second album, Keys, Strings and Tambourines, released under the mighty wings of Carl Craig’s label Planet E was considered by many including Resident Advisor to be one of the most important albums released that year (2008), featuring it in their top 20 essential albums list.
Larkin’s thunderous return to techno has not stopped since, with Kenny touring the globe more than ever as part of the 25 years of Detroit Techno celebrations and releasing new records on Planet E, being remixed by Claude Von Stroke and Ben Klock and collaborating with Shlomi Aber on his Be As One Imprint.
