Foundation Nightclub September Lineup & Giveaways

Those fortunate enough to live near Seattle are once again treated to a star studded September calendar thanks to USC Events and Foundation Nightclub. Each and every week has a packed set of lineups and features some of the top electronic music acts in the world. From dubstep to house to trance, here are Foundation Nightclub’s September shows.  

Substance Wednesdays


KJ Sawka & AU5 [9/10]

These two masters of bass (including the incredibly talented drummer for supergroup Destroid) are set to grace the stages of Foundation for a night you are surely not soon to forget. Drummer KJ Sawka (who is also part of Pendulum) and trancestep producer AU5 will leave you wanting more and your eardrums ringing.

Nit Grit & Wick-It The Instigator [9/17]

If you are looking for a little more of a diverse bass experience, Nit Grit & Wick-It The Instigator have you covered. Both producers have very unique styles in bass and will surely put on a show unlike any you have witnessed before. Anyone who tags their Soundcloud uploads with #filth is one to see in our book. Be ready for some tribal-style vocals and even heavier drops.

Craze [9/24]

One of the top DJs in the world, Craze returns to Seattle to rattle Foundation with his versatile ability to not only be an incredible trap artist, but to also get the crowd moving with house, moombahton and what he calls "Miami Bass." Craze definitely doesn't hold back, and dude can seriously throw down.

Resonate Fridays

851X315 (1)

DJ Icey [9/12]

Dubbed the "King of Funky Breaks," Florida-based DJ Icey is bringing a style of music that Foundation has never experienced. It's rare that a breaks artist gets booked, so this is something that we are super excited about. Icey has run the 90s Florida electronic scene, and he's back in the game with a vengeance.

Twerk alert! GTA is taking over the decks and with their pledge of "death to genres" these boys are bringing much, much more than your usual trap. Don't worry, there will still be plenty of ass-shaking to be had, in addition to a lot of high-tempo bangers.

Progression Saturdays


Stoneface & Terminal [9/13]

These two trance producers are heading all the way from Germany to grace Foundation's decks with some soothing melodies. We've honestly never heard of them prior (except for seeing their names a few times on ASOT tracklists), but we're super stoked to catch their set. Their new track "ForYou" featuring the amazing vocals of Ellie Lawson is what really sealed the deal for us.

Aly & Fila [9/20] (TWEET TO WIN TICKETS!)

Our two favorite Egyptians are back at Foundation and we couldn't be more excited! Their Paradiso set was one of our favorites. Did you miss it? Don't make the same mistake again when they return to Seattle to play an incredibly intimate and show-stopping set that will have you reeling for days afterwards.
