Last month we celebrated 5 years of ridiculous Dickslapping times at The Eagle... DANG... 5 years. And to coordinate as such, of course the infamous Kitty the Bear danced in the cage for us (oh and some guy named Boomer Banks ((who is important if you like porn (((which you should ((((seriously look it up (((((it's huge)))))) and the dance floor raged all night to the acidic bliss of Tin Man. Thanks to you for from the bottom of our bottom's heart's for bringing your a-game on the dance floor, that was truly special!
BUT THE HITS KEEP COMING- Because tonight we welcome back another musical powerhouse, PROSUMER!! Hailing from Edinburgh and the depths of Berghain, producing on Ostgut Ton and his own label Potion, this is one majorly talented dude you don't wanna miss, which if you were here last year, you know why. Pllus there will be lots and lots of butt touching. C U THERE.

Bottom Forty’s first release perfectly represents the eclectic, adaptive aesthetic that the collective has proudly cultivated. N.D.S.F. is the serendipitous collaboration between Bottom Forty’s creator Nark, Friends With Benefits Records label honcho David Sylvester, and soon-to-be LA-based producer powerhouse Futurewife. Weaving samples of their favorite records into original songwriting, “Fine On Your Own” is a seemingly light-hearted house track that turns deep, with a pounding yet cosmic 303 that beats on your chest while the vocal samples keep your spirits high. By the end of the breakdown, the infectious melody of “Fine On Your Own” has worked it’s way into your head, and you’ll find yourself dancing to it all night long.
While the original track synthesizes each producer’s style, the accompanying remixes transform “Fine On Your Own” into each individual artist’s world of dance music. Nark’s remix brings “Fine On Your Own” into the dark, vibrating basements where industrial subtleties make their return into techno, whereas David Sylvester’s mix juxtaposes the acidic and atmospheric elements of the original, tying them together with dubbed out synth stabs, and finally Futurewife’s mix pulls "Fine On Your Own" into the climax of a party rocking set with its driving nu-disco vibe.
Check it out below and order your copy here now on BANDCAMP, and come to the release party Saturday night (1/09) at KREMWERK!

To celebrate the 5 year anniversary of Dickslap tonight (Friday 12.18) w/ Tin Man and Boomer, here's a look back at some of the old Dickslap posters we could dig up. It's like one of those Buzzfeed posts except less organized and with a non-misleading title.
Starting with the very FIRST Dickslap poster ever-
Check out the rest below!
Thanks to David Sylvester for turning us way up last month at Dickslap, it's been a super super crazy five years and we can't wait to celebrate the anniversary with you tonight. We've called in all the corners for this one, with a live acid wonderland set by Tin Man, recently rated by RA as one of the top 40 acts to see live, plus the long john that is Boomer Banks will be in the cage with Kitty the Bear, Pup's Amp and Bolt will be tending to your every need and for the first time we'll be DJ'ing on the dance floor with Recess and are bringing in a whole secondary sound system to really rattle your buns.

Just when you thought you'd have enough Dick(slap) you were wrong, WRONG I tell you. Thanks for all the freaks for comin' out to play with us, and the super handsome Rod Thomas / Bright Light Bright Light and Chris Camplin coming in from London or NY or wherever they were currently, doesn't matter, all that matters is they were with US.
So when will you be with us again? Well, there's this Friday for DICKSLAP November (no, not movember) with the coincidentally super-bearded David Sylvester and myself, or, maybe you're in SF and you want to make out with EVERYONE for the SF Make Out Party at the SF Eagle on Saturday? I know I will.
Or maybe super insanely fierce drag ball walk off runway competition shows are your thing, well then get into INTO? next Saturday at Neumos, OKKK.
Well without further adieu, I know you're waiting for these, so here are the photos from DBL Dickslap Halloween by MATT BAUME.
Dickslap, it's just the best time of the month, isn't it? As you can see here condoms rain down on you from the heavens and the vinyl just clings to your skin like, well, skin- meanwhile you're mackin' on Seattle's cute ass people and dancing to the tastemakers from around town and the globe, what's not to like? If you aren't into any of that stuff that's ok, but you sound kinda boring, but that's cool baby you be you.
Speaking of things you're into.... are you into... INTO? I hate to use the word epic, so I won't, but this will be a huge adjective! Click on the birdy to learn more about INTO? next SATURDAY 11/28 at NEUMOS
But before that, where will you make out? well, here of course, for the next Dickslap THIS FRIDAY!
Without further adieu, photos by Rachel Robinson.
The best party ever is the Make Out Party, why? ISN'T IT OBVIOUS. You get to make out with everybody, and all those people you ALWAYS wanted to make out with, for years, like you've always just thought about how hot they are and how much you want to inspect their tonsils, and then at this party you just go ask them, "hey wanna make out in the photo booth?" and they are like "Sure." What's not to love?
Well, plus now, we're letting you Make Out in ridiculous situations, like this month was in SPACE, which you've always wanted to make out in, next time? PARIS. When is next time? Well it's always the second Friday, so the next one up is NOVEMBER 13TH.
Until then, you can practice your skills this Saturday for a DBL Dose of Dickslap with our Halloween party-extravaganza featuring multiple super hot scruffy DJ/musician/professional-pretty-person from London Chris Camplin and Rod Thomas (Bright Light Bright Light), plus the return of ROSS Milam of Scruff, and Amp in the cage and just a whole bunch of crazy hotness and the theme (which you don't have to follow cuz, hi, it's HALLOWEEN) is Murder She Texted / Romy and Michele's Horror High School Reunion. See you there, k?
