Eye of the Tiger : an interview with Tigerbeat

Josh "Tigerbeat" Saenz basically runs the B-More end of the club music scene here in Seattle. He is an active DJ/Promoter who brings in people like Scottie B & Dlake among other highly reputable artists. We figured it was due time to pry the layers of his brain and see what the man is up to, what he has in store, and share some of his tunes with you.
FJ: How long have you been DJing?

TB: Since 2006/2007

FJ: When did you first come to the conclusion that you wanted to pursue DJing as more than just a hobby? Any artists that inspired you?

TB: When I realized that selling drugs wasn't going to get me anywhere but jail. I had to do something for income and I couldn't and still cant handle having anyone telling me what to do. Thats when Risky Business Productions came into play. Thankfully for the first two years I was able to support myself with selling and just basically hover over the turntables from anywhere to 4 to 15 hours a day.
As for inspiration, I remember first seeing FourColorZack and DJ Curtis just doing these crazy hipster parties at the War Room and Egg Room. People just partying and losing their shit. And The Clipse. I was listening to ALOT of The Clipse.

FJ: Where were some of your first DJ gigs and who were you working with back then?

TB: My very first gig was at The Egg Room. The Egg Room was an afterparty spot above El Corazon that had crazy energy. I played that show with two ipods! Damaged Goods was basically my right hand girl in those days. Very good times.

FJ: We know Outsoured at Moe Bar has been is cracking off every Monday for well over the past year. Tell us a little of the history behind that night;
what were your initial ideas for the night and did that change at all as time passed? Who's has been involved in the night since its inception?

TB: I've been there since day one. Many people have had some influence on the night from a few weeks to several months over the past two years. I think that being a decent dj you should change and evolve with the music/people you identify most with. When Outsourced started, I was buying Ed Banger records, two years later Im making Baltimore tracks. So Im really open to whatever as long as it makes people go hard on the dancefloor and keeps me interested.

FJ: What other nights can people come check you out?

TB: Aside from "Outsourced" at MOE every Monday, you can find me at "HollyHood" at Havana Social Club every Tuesday. Every first Thursday of the month at Sole Repair Shop for "Young, Rich & Fabulous. 1st and 3rd Fridays at 9 Million in Unmarked Bills in Fremont. And every Saturday at The Loft in Edmonds.

FJ: What's your evaluation of the club music scene here in Seattle? Anything you want to see happen or things you are working towards changing?

TB: Decent. Some people need to let go and move on. They're just playing for themselves and the look of confusion or boredom on the dancefloor shows it. For the most part, people want to dance, not have some obscure b-side bestowed upon them at midnight. Another is predictability. If I hear Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam at Havana one more time Im going to fucking scream.

FJ: What are the Top 5 most played tracks in your iTunes Library?

TB: I'll tell you my 5 favorite tracks right now, but not the most played...
1. Obsessed by Mariah Carey feat. Gucci Mane
2. Tunnels by Burt Fox
3. Vader Rap by Fresh Espresso
4. DJ by Amanda Blank
5. Photoshoot by Gucci Mane

FJ: What do you use to produce your tracks?

TB: Ableton Live, My Korg Synthesizer. Samples. Lots of samples. I tried to use Reason but it might as well be in Japanese..

FJ: Do you prefer working on remixes over originals or vice versa? What do you find to be most gratifying while working in the studio?

TB: I really don't have a preference. If Im feeling it and it feels doable then I will give it a go. Acapellas give me a hard time.

FJ: We are really stoked that you have the ability to bring people like Scottie B to Seattle. How'd you establish that connection and who else can we expect to grace Seattle in the future?

TB: Simply Networking. As for future shows, I don't really know. Scottie B is coming in from Oz and he will be at Outsourced on Oct 12 for my pre birthday party and its a free show. Hows that?

FJ: Any last words / shout outs?

TB: Thanks to Baltimore. Blarely Legal. All the venues and people that have put up with my antics. Marty Mar, Dev From Above, the blogs, Seattle people and Djs for being supportive and helping me achieve my goals, Without you Id probably be working at Target. and last but not least, the HATERS.

FJ: Thanks for your time!

So Drunk Unkle and I where chattin while I was waiting in the cell lot at SEATAC for Shorthand to get back from Scottland, and I got the idea to take the baltimore club format but use the Amen break instead of (or along with) the SingSing or Think... not a overly sensational concept, but it introduces an interesting aesthetic to the heavily tapped baltimore format.. in addition to the Amen's sonic substance, it also lends a nod to the long-living Seattle Drum and Bass scene, which has remained a very prominent style in Seattle's electronic music culture. Im done explaining this just listen

FileJerks - Whats My Favorite Word
FileJerks - Champ World

these are only a few of the recent Seattle Club tracks, there are earlier tracks which I shall share next post,enjoy!

Check out our homie Vegas Paris... this dude's raps are grimey, hypnotic, and often grotesque; so much that they leave the listener fully submitted to the carnage of the mind that is Vegas Paris, Vegas P or Vincent Vega or whatever the fuck you wanna call him. Swagger Fabrik gets mad airplay in Juneau on KXLL.........and he sleeps in my living room. Watch out for this shmuck.

Birdapres is dope as fuck... here is an interview with the man himself:

Bird has been reppin Van hella hard for years. I lived in EastVan from 2003-2004 and somehow never caught a show.
Soon after my departure I came to grips with this dudes skills. He released "Get it Done" on Peanuts & Corn Records, and more recently the "Toothpaste EP" (which he personally sent me the link for, which has since been release and now the link is dead).
"Toothpaste" is incredible tho; caked with jazzy and sometimes avantgard, yet brilliant loops which compliment his easy going, solar powered flow. blah blah blah just peep, its that real rap shit

zombie umbrella

if you've never done acid, this is relatively close to a good trip..
but I recommend you try LSD at least once in your life;
just do it before you are an "adult" and don't tell anyone
I advocate it's use that drips with fun and laughs

where do I find this shit!??!

I often ask myself this question as I stumble upon these clusters of brilliance
tucked into the far corners of this masquerade we call the interweb.
I was listening to Roy Orbison "Crying" while I opened this page;
I suggest you do the same sugar lips

I love you too babe!

I've been listening to Keith for the last 10 years. At first I was really disoriented by his approach to lyricism; almost turned off by it. But I knew that it was something really important, so I persisted to digest his beautifully warped perspective. As time passed and I had listened to Dr. Octagon roughly 100 times, I light bulb sputtered in my mind's ear and it began to make sense!
So from there I began to follow everything he did; Black Elvis, Spankmaster, Dr. Dooom, Matthew, ETC, ETC.
I dont think anyone making records can match Keith's longevity and influence in the world of rap music.
With all of that said its apparent that I'm a hardcore Keith fan, and I couldnt help but get more giggly than a school girl
about to get eaten out after her sweet sixteen when I caught wind of Keith Thornton himself would be performing in Seattle.
I know a few of the people who where bringing him hear, so I expressed my fanatasizm on numerous occasions to them, thanking and hugging them. Then, the day of the show I get a text from POMZ asking if I wanted to spin at the Keith show.
Long story short the FileJerks opened for Kool Keith. I can die now.
