Show And Tell, the biweekly residency every other Wednesday solely dedicated to Northwest electronic music producers, is delighted to welcome back two hard-working local producers ready to bestow new productions and live sets upon ye: 5HIF7Y & Vox Mod!
As a Washington state native, Taylor Dahlberg, aka 5H1F7Y (pronounced "shifty") has been producing electronic music for the past 10 years. At the age of 17, towards the last few years of his soccer playing days, 5H1F7Y had discovered the joy of electronic music. Being exposed to all genres of electronica from fellow friends and current day venues, he instantly fell in love with the idea of being able to make music, specifically electronic music.
Originally, 5H1F7Y purchased an all-in-one DJ turntable package, as the first step in being able to work with music directly. It wasn't long before he realized that mixing music together was a good outlet, but was not occupying his creativity as much he knew something should be. It was 2 years after his original purchase of a turntable and mixer set that 5H1F7Y decided to buy a drum machine. A machine which was capable of allowing an artist to create their art, in the form of an electronic beat. It was at this point that his life would be changed forever.

Seattle based musician and artist, Scot Porter aka Vox Mod, is destined to shape the future sounds of electronic music. He released HAZMAT on April 30, 2011, a sonic journey of cosmic proportions that leads the listener across the universe through lush planets, vibrant nebulas, and rifts in time and space. HAZMAT literally means hazardous materials, and that is to suggest that the music is a culmination of ideas and that those ideas can have monumental effects. It also represents a crossing point of old Vox Mod (Voicechanger) music and foreshadows the yet to be discovered soundscapes.
