We thought it would be fitting to transmit all the upcoming shows (that we like) so you have a better idea of where the party will be, besides in my pants. Most of the events we're mentioning are thrown in the Mid-Atlantic region and host EDM music of some type.

If you know about a dope event on the horizon send me the link at transmit@darkmattersquad.com and we will check it out. Doesn't matter if its here or there, as long as it's somewhere.

Brandon Riggs and Mariano Mumpower have spent the last two years out of the club scene limelight, although it is not as if they've been spending idle time. Now in their 30's, each of them has had a child -- not to mention their own more ambitious endeavors into the music.

The pair first made waves at nightclubs in Charm City during the early 2000's when they began gigging at Sonar, then owned by club-scene innovator Lonnie Fisher. Riggs had been a turntablist for some time, earning recognition ever since the mid 90's for his tight technical abilities and superb musical taste. Mumpower (also known as "Soulminer") was newer to the game, although he was quickly welcomed into the club's family when he was discovered in a DJ competition hosted by Fisher himself. "I want him involved, he's a great performer." said Fisher. 

Music by: Soulminer (Baltimore)

A Special Pre-Valentine's Day Ball Presented by E-Villa, Innervisions, Deep Secrets, HeidnSeek, & Mission Tickets... 

Âme is regarded as one of the most influential DJ/producers of our generation. Their regular nights at such establishments as Robert Johnson (Frankfurt), Fabric (London), and Air (Tokyo) are exceeded only by their marathon sets at what may be considered the best club in the world; Panorama Bar in Berlin. 

Recent track-of-the-year contender remixes of Osunlade, putting out groundbreaking music from artists such as Culoe De Song, Laurent Garnier, and Tokyo Black Star on their own label "Innervisions" (co-run by Dixon) have earned them a position rarely matched by any european act that has ever performed in Baltimore.

"January 27th, 2007 marked an event so amazing that it still lives in rave legend today. People speak about the last Superfunkidiculous in awe, and 5 years later, we feel the time is finally right to do it up one more time and we've enlisted some friends we've met along the way to help. If you were at the last Superfunk, you know what kind of epic family vibed super throwdown it was. If you weren’t there, this is your chance to be a part of history as we take it back one more time!"
