The Shameless Social welcomes the reunion of the infamous DJ collective FLEA MARKET to Electric Tea Garden! Formed in 2004 by Brent Tactic & Verse (aka Josh Roberts), Flea Market was a DJ collective dedicated to blending a multitude of genres ranging from electro, IDM, hip-hop and techno to deep house, glitch, tech-house and ghetto-tech. The idea was not to simply play one genre all night, but to cross-pollinate multiple genres into DJ set and make it the end result sound fun and exciting. Resident DJs Kadeejah Streets, Greg Skidmore, and Scratchmaster Joe joined Flea Market during its 2 ½ year residency at Chapel, where crazy nights of mad tag-teaming DJ sets ensued. Curious? Listen to a recording from a Flea Market party back in 2006: soundcloud.com/flea-market

Five years later, Flea Market reunites for one special night with Shameless Social resident Recess. Expect lots of crazy tag-team sets from the Flea Market DJs all night long! Tactic headlines with what promises to be a fierce set largely focused on the growing moonbahton movement.

TACTIC = BEN TACTIC + BRENT TACTIC (Think 2wice, Bubblin – KC/PDX)


Tactic is a dj & production team made up of Ben Tactic and Brent Tactic. The pair started working together in 2002 and immediately began to build on the success of their individual music careers. Ben’s background is based in electronic dance music and he cut his teeth playing warehouses, lofts and clubs all over the Midwest. Brent experienced great success in the hip-hop scene and split his time between djing and running an independent hip-hop label.

The two found common creative ground with the burgeoning music scene that ignored genre boundaries. Their focus became the best possible music from a broad cross section of club culture. Their 4 turntable dj sets blur the line between hip-hop, electronic and club music to get everyone’s asses shaking.

Tactic has proven just as productive in the studio as they are in the club. Their remixes and original productions have garnered international attention with plays on NYC’s East Village Radio and London’s prestigious KISS FM and BBC Radio1 as well as getting in rotation in the dj sets of Diplo, Sinden, Tittsworth, Starkey, Jackmaster, Dave Nada, Cosmo Baker and Eli Escobar. To date they have had remixes and original tracks released on labels such as Mad Decent, Dress 2 Sweat (Numbers), Starkey’s label Slit Jockey, Palms Out Sounds, Datura Records and their own label Think 2wice. With Ben now living in PDX running the groundbreaking night Bubblin and Brent residing in KC, this is a rare chance to see them perform together.
