35. Absent Lad

Drum & Bass / Half-Time

Hear awesome DJ sets like this one live every first Friday of the month on the Peace Portal Podcast broadcasted on www.kzaxradio.org.


This Rinse Out Resident has created a name for himself in the last year, perfecting his craft of melding genres such as liquid drum and bass, halftime, and hip- hop together into cohesive sets. Having performed at festivals and club nights throughout Bellingham, he has shown off his skills at events such as Flow State Festival, Bass Culture, and Locals only.


What have you been up to?

Mostly building houses and listening to podcasts.

Tell us a bit about the mix!

The aim was to keep people engaged by giving them a dynamic mix of moods through out the whole thing. It’s all over the place. There’s feels, bangers and atmospheric tunes in it.

Where are you at when you’re not behind the decks?

In a gym, sauna or project site.

What are you listening to when you’re not in the mix?

Recently, a lot of footwork, more dnb, and goldlink.

What are you up to next?

I’m playing at BAMF! (Bellingham Arts and Music Festival) with my Rinse Out friends for what we hope to be a very special sunrise set.
