In the early 90’s, when gangsta’ rap consumed the airwaves, and the majority of West Coast rappers strapped on their Locs, Chuck Taylor’s & Ben Davis’, The Pharcyde decidedly maintained a willfully weird vision. Opting to stay true to themselves with their left field but still South-Central sensibility, rap had seen few groups so self-deprecating and so smart, four visionary rappers adroitly able to split the difference between helium-voiced and hard-core. Listening to “Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde” decades after its release, its sense of timeliness is unmistakable. Every song on the album inverts a hoary hip-hop cliché. With classics like “Oh Shit,” “Otha Fish”, “Ya’ Mama,” and hit single, “Passing Me By,” it is not surprising that it shipped over a million units, garnered comparisons to De La Soul and Tribe Called Quest, and everyone from Pitchfork Media to The Source has hailed it as one of the greatest albums ever made. “Labcabincalifornia” has revealed exactly how far-reaching The Pharcyde’s vision was. From enlisting a young, and then unknown James Yancey aka J DILLA to produce beats, the classic “Runnin” to collaborating with director Spike Jonze on the video for “Drop,” their vision has consistently reinforced their steadfast refusal to tread familiar artistic grounds. Today, The Pharcyde is still performing and touring the globe. They continue to hone their individual projects and abilities yet carry on the name & legacy in its original fashion. Imani and Bootie Brown still seduce their audience with the same high energy & boyish charm that founded them at the beginning. The end result of all this hard work is a band that’s still influencing the hip hop artists and sounds crowding our radio waves today and will continue to for many years to come.

New Years Eve 2020
Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at The Underground
Doors open at 9:00 PM
STA is proud to bring you a special New Years Eve event. We will be hosting both floors, Box House & The Underground. Ashley Wallbridge Garuda/Assured Having gained himself a charging position as one of electronic music’s most esteemed DJs and producers, Ashley Wallbridge rides his own fresh wave of sonic creativity in and out of the studio. His musical acumen is second to none, a sentiment reflected by countless remix requests from industry leaders such as Avicii, Havana Brown, Krewella, Armin van Buuren, Gareth Emery & more. Turning to blank slates, Ashley’s own originals grow in number and acclaim each year, with notable releases having topped dance music charts (iTunes, Beatport, AudioJelly), streamed in the millions (Spotify) and received regular airtime from BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong and Danny Howard, Avicii himself, David Guetta, W&W, Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin & more. Wallbridge is no stranger to commercial success. His 2012 debut album “The Inner Me” reached #5 on the iTunes USA charts, #9 in Canada and #12 for the UK. Migrating the tunes to the crowds, his live performances have taken him from Europe to the USA and as far as Australasia, appearing at many prestigious venues including Exchange (Los Angeles), Omnia (San Diego), Ministry of Sound (London, UK) and Privilege, Ibiza. Ashley’s ever-growing demand from fans has seen him perform at major festivals including Creamfields (Australia), Global Gathering (UK) and Sunset Music Festival (USA). What’s more, his unique style has led to him touring with superstars ‘Armin van Buuren’ (Brazil, Netherlands), ‘Alesso’ (Isreal) and even securing his own residency at famous Las Vegas hot spot ‘Marquee’. In 2016 Ashley signed an exclusive deal with worldwide record label & distributor “Armada Music” and released an onslaught of powerhouse records. His discography to date includes notable chart placements and a growing monthly audience of over 400,000 listeners, generating millions of streams on key platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music. (See discography below for stats). Following his term as an exclusive artist with Armada, Ashley turned his own hand to the record label business and became co-owner of Garuda Music, a boutique label approaching its 10-year anniversary. Wallbridge’s fresh musical policy and charismatic approach led to a resurgence in the label’s popularity, bolstered even more by the release of his own 2018 hit single ‘Surrender’, together with dance music icon ‘Darude’. Going into 2019, Ashley is due to release his second artist album (May 10th, 2019), this time with long time friend and collaborator Gareth Emery. He’ll also be performing on four major electronic music festivals including Creamfields (UK), Dance Valley (Netherlands), Mid Summer Festival (Finland) and Euphoria Festival (Poland). Looking further beyond, he is set to continue touring globally with a series of shows promoting his 2019 album as well as ongoing showcase events celebrating Ashley and other artists associated with his record label Garuda. Dimibo Armada/Iono/Perfecto Filip and Loch first met online in 2013 through a shared passion for producing electronic music. Both hailing from the Pacific Northwest, it wasn’t long before they sat down in the studio and started making music together. Their first song, ‘Shangri La,’ won them a trip to Las Vegas to perform at Electric Daisy Carnival as winners of Insomniac’s Discovery Project. However, this early success had to be put on hold. Not completely satisfied with their final product, they spent the next two years honing their production capabilities as well as their overall sound, and it is during this period that they discovered their mutual passion for psytrance. Their performance at a few select festivals followed by a release on the respected Brazilian psy label Alien Records caught the attention of a fellow producer who calls the Northwest home. Sharing a love of psytrance with Seven Lions, they collaborated on a massive remix of Excision’s 2016 dubstep monster ‘The Paradox.’ Deftly blending two seemingly incompatible genres, their Paradox remix immediately grabbed the attention of a wide range of listeners. With multiple tracks slated for upcoming release on Armada Music & Perfecto Records to name a few, it's safe to say that Dimibo is just getting started. Elevven Anjunabeats/Silk Music/Kems Agency Elevven is the musical project by Eskai & SNR. Their remix of Gabriel & Dresden’s ‘You’ was named Above & Beyond’s favorite track of 2018 in DJ Mag, and they have worked with the likes of dance music icons Ferry Corsten, Morgan Page and JES. With guest sets for both Armin van Buuren’s A State of Trance and Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Radio firmly under their belt, 2019 is set to be a landmark year for the Los Angeles-based duo. Emerge Silk Music/FSOE Parallels/Evolved Artists Seattle based producer, John Espinoza, better known as Emerge continues to be a consistent talent in the trance and progressive world. With his wide range of production styles, his music can span across the trance and progressive spectrum. With releases on record labels such as Future Sound Of Egypt, and Armada Music. His music can be seen on the playlist of Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Aly & Fila, Cosmic Gate and many more. Host to the monthly podcast "Life Radio" on After Hours FM, Emerge is constantly pushing new sonic boundaries. The podcast is a deeper look at the versatility and style of an Emerge DJ set. Spanning from deep melodic progressive rhythms to peak hour progressive trance. Outside of his radio show Emerge has brought his style to some of the biggest festivals in the industry such as Electric Daisy Carnival, Beyond Wonderland, and Life In Color. His high energy sets have also been brought into nightclubs such as the famous Ruby Skye in San Fransico, the legendary Club Circus in Los Angeles, and the Underground in downtown Seattle. Emerge has also made appearances at DJ Mag, top 100 clubs such as Foundation Nightclub in Seattle, and Beta Nightclub in Denver. From the festival stage to an intimate nightclub Emerge has shown his ability to control a crowd and create a journey.
