DJ Tronic hosts the Plugged In show on KBOO the first and third Friday of each month from 10pm - 12am PST. Tronic does a live DJ mix in the studio featuring the latest in deep house, house, techno, tech house, breaks, drum-n-bass, downtempo and more.

A selection of Guidance Counselor's performance at the 2009 PDX Pop Now! music festival, as aired on the July 31st edition of Plugged In.
Composer of mercurial soundtracks for uncertain times, Thavius Beck conjoins various strains of electronic music to arrive at a daringly ambitious sound. He recently joined a lineup of local artists to celebrate black electronic music and benefit KBOO at Holocene in Portland, Oregon.
Mr. Beck has received recognition in The Wire, Spin, and Urb for his solo releases under the moniker Adlib, the Labwaste project with fellow LA artist Subtitle, his recent production for fellow Mush artist K-The-I???, his early work with Global Phlowtations, numerous guest appearances, and producing for and touring in support of and accompanying Saul Williams. An exceptional programmer, engineer and multi-instrumentalist, Thavius Beck’s many talents allow him to take a song from idea to completion without ever having to leave his cluttered studio.

Portland wouldn't let Show Me the Pink run away forever. With a return long overdue, the band performed at Branx with Bitchin' Summer and Full Face Riot.
The house was packed and by the time Show Me the Pink took to the stage the venue had been warmed up and flashing bicycle lights prepared the dancefloor.
Dirty X-Rated played a set during the Beat Off at Holocene.
Dirty came to KBOO's studio for the Plugged In show previewing the Beat Off.
What is a Beat Off? Well maybe not what you think.
Recently, Holocene hosted one of a series of these where electronic musicians are given a variety of short samples of music and are challenged to come up with some dope beats in one hour. Wanna hear what it sounds like?
Those who participated include Techno Mike, Quiet Countries, Magnum PA, Dirty X Rated, Shrubbery, Demi Batard, Cutter Filtoff, Graintable, Demdranger / John Henry, Rude Boy, The DJ Nealie Neal, and Sedell Jones who was voted the winner of the battle.
Special thanks to organizer Erik Beats for setting this up.
As a preview of the upcoming Beat Off at Holocene, I hosted the organizer of the event and a few electronic artists who will be competing. We even had our own mini beat off beat battle on the air.
On the show was Beat Off organizer Erik Beats, Dirty X Rated, The New Plastic, and Trick-Assed Marxist. We heard some of their work, including some of their past competitions, and then finished the program with a beat battle challenge using the same samples that will be used for the Beat Off next week. You'll have to listen to find out who was voted the winner!
