Dropping Gems Showcase


White Owl Social Club (map) Southeast
Sun., Aug. 10, 3 p.m. 2014 21+


In the last several years, Dropping Gems has gone from a small group of electronic producers and hiphop heads playing Evergreen State College dorm parties to an internationally recognized label and party crew based right here in Portland, Oregon. Their releases premiere on Spin and Fader, they get featured on Xlr8r and Impose, they make top 10 lists on Vibe, and they've created their own scene for electronic music in the Northwest. Dropping Gems' roster of artists extends from the underwater pitch-shifted ambience of Citymouth to the dancefloor-ready skewed R&B of Natasha Kmeto, all while maintaining a particular aesthetic—one that's more about textures than genres. Today's daytime party celebrates the release of their 21-track cassette compilation Gem Drops Four, showcasing the impressive community they've created over the years. JOSHUA JAMES AMBERSON
