Melt Shake, Meow Wolf’s Friday night Halloween party. Feat. Alexander Lewis and Defunk with local support from Purpetual, Duchess and Captain Curt. Beneath the Mastodon in the Caves, we have the LAWD showcase. This year’s Halloween party will feature performers throughout House of Eternal Return, the PHXFLUX dance collective, a costume contest, and a $500 prize plus trophy for the winner! See you on the dance floor, melters!
If difference is a strength, Alexander Lewis would be one of the best of his kind. This talented American artist is not only an excellent producer but also a fabulous multi-instrumentalist : sighted some years ago thanks to his digital atmospheric Trap Music, his love for strong and vibrant chords leads him to sign on quality labels, like Elysian Records or OWSLA Records, and appear on famous Run The Trap and TheSoundYouNeed’s compilations.

Merging modern bass music with the retro sounds of jazz, blues, disco and funk, Defunk has taken bass music to new heights. From up-tempo to downright dirty, he blends the old with the new across countless genres and tempos. From swinging saxophone solos, to banjo breakdowns, soul build ups and face melting bass drops. He aims to create electronic music that knows no bounds or overdone sounds.
NiceFingers is the partnership of David Schneider and Nick Waterhouse whose goal it is to create unique and uplifting bass music. Currently based out of Los Angeles, the duo is in full force as they draw on both of their extensive musical backgrounds.
Captain Curt looks to bring way to a new era of bass music. Bridging the sonic barriers between half-time, jungle, grime, trap and hip-hop to make way for a heart warming, rhythmic journey that enticing club dance floors to look deeper.
The Father of Funk, Purpetual brings a side of soulful glitch-hop that warms your heart. Recently Purpetual has become a local favorite for his cereal bars and throwback sets that make us all remember sitting in front of our tvs watching Saturday morning cartoons. We are excited to hear what fun things he has planned for us on Halloween.
With early influences ranging from Disco, Blues, Funk, and Soul that paved the way to her passion for House, DnB, Juke, Dub, Footwork, Jungle, and Trap, Duchess shares her bass-driven eclectic mixes as puzzle pieces to her personal journey through sound and how it influences her inner world. Originally from Phoenix, with a deep resonance to the Southwest, her arrow is pointed towards whatever stirs and awakens the soul. Having resided in a myriad of places on her travels, she carries her experiences in her melodies with heartfelt rhythms and attention to subtle textures and tension. Duchess places emphasis on cinematic touches with her grooves to tell her own story. Between moments of ecstatic joy to the sounds that keep you awake that go bump in the night she aims her work at the duality and full spectrum of emotion and human experience. Duchess shares an auditory narrative that both intoxicates us to push through boundaries of our comfort zones, and connect us to individual raw authentic essence.
