Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Renegade Lights presents another Chicago-Love-born extravaganza! May 26th, 2012, it’s gonna be a veritable “show for the end times”! Come for the music, stay for the apocalypse! (…and if there’s no apocalypse, our music will keep you safe, warm, and in-an-orgasmic-frenzy anyways)
So what say ye! Will ye sit on thy arse and grow morose from the onslaught of the ages and a thousand regrets?! Or….
Will ye attend?!!!!
Here’s some glimpses of the magic wielded that night:
First off, a video of Noah (aka 'Talks') aka 'Automatic Thoughts' bringing the house down and raising the roof all at the same time!
Renfield knows how to tickle the ivories(even when they’re made of some sort of plastic polymer! :
And here he is, with focused concentration, intent on blowing your mind:
Gettin the audience hyped:
And then there was Toiletooth:
Toiletooth, and a mysterious seer of digital vision who goes by the name “Mark”, gave us a brilliant audio/visual spectacle:
Both of them, carrying immense artistic prowess in their own right, coming together to melt faces:
And here you can see our good friend and fellow renegade artist, Bob Phillips, also known as ‘Rawore’, capturing the sorcery of Toiletooth and Mark. He always knows where the action is ;D :
Next up, we had Citymouth:
Twisting audio subversiveness into your fragile reality, Citymouth kills it with no remorse:
This is not a camera effect, Citymouth is literally emerging from many different dimensions all at once to pounce upon his prey:
Deems took the stage next:
Deems came fully prepared with a bottle of water, not because he gets thirsty, but because every time he plays, folks get too hot and bothered by the killer sound, and sometimes he needs to douse them before they pass out from the sheer awesomeness:
Deems has also been known to set cities ablaze with his music, as you can see here in the background:
And finally, Noah, as you saw in the video, rode out into the middle of the battlefield to taunt our enemies with a resounding chant of “DEATH! DEATH! To the non-bass loving infidels!” before slaying their souls for all of eternity….. ok, ok, at this point i’m going too far with the ‘killing-it’ analogy…. point is, Noah killed it…. once again:
He put the smack down on that extra-sized button pad cuz he don’t take no smack from no monome:
Oh, and a bit out of order, here’s just a quick shot of me, thinking of the children, because amidst all this ‘killing it’, someone had to think of the children:
And just as a little extra, here’s a beautiful photo taken by Noah, showing Ella St. with its classic style serving as the perfect backdrop for Renegade Lights. Such a great venue to play at. Portland has a rare gem there:
Thank You Portland for an astoundingly energetic, hardcore-fun, and unforgettable show!
We are honored to be invited by our Portland friends, Deems, Jon, Noah, and many others to visit Portland and bring our shine to an already bright and beautiful city. If I have some sort of 3rd retina, this night shall be burned into it forever as Portland is known to never disappoint, the liveliness is epic, and we are sure to take full advantage!
Join the event on Facebook, and we’ll send out a reminder a week or so before the event.
We’ve got a talented lineup of intrepid electronic music warriors who are going to make you soil yourself from the utterly awe-inspiring bass machinations they will drop on your fragile little mind. It is highly suggested you bring a change of drawers.
Salud! Benvenuti! Ça Va! Mushi Mushi! Namashkar! Holler!
Come one, come all to the blazinest bassface beatfreak barrage in town! RENEGADE MOTHERPHUCKIN LIGHTS! WHUT!!!!
Our artists will drown your sorrows in a wash of digital-to-analog-then-back-to-digital-and-if-they-feel-like-it-back-to-analog-again mayhem.

The inception of a new era in electronic music: Renegade Lights #1. Renegade Lights Media ignites their shine onto the world of electronic music for the first time with this originally defiant compilation of uniquely skilled artists. These beats were born to butcher bassbins and refuse to die, taking you on an intrepid journey through the fringes of all genres and beyond while still remaining cohesively engaging throughout. Through shine or shadow, this tasty double-wax album remains truly renegade.

A few details:
Title: Renegade Lights #1
Format: Digital Download and 45rpm double-wax
Release Date: November 15th, 2011
For the rest of my life, I’d like to put out releases and do shows. It’s that simple. We’ve done a few very successful shows and it’s time to put out our first release. For this first one, I wanted it to be special, a good representation of what we do and a nice way to commemorate the start of something beautiful. So I’ve chosen to put it out on vinyl. We have 11 musicians who will be contributing tracks for the vinyl and download:
Normally, I think we’ll be putting out releases for digital downloads and the proceeds from those downloads would build up to a single EP-style vinyl release eventually with as much frequency as is sustainable. But just this once, we’re trying to raise funds publicly for this first release. Perhaps someday, as is part of my dream, we will do some fund-raising events and releases for charitable purposes. Other than that, in terms of public fund-raising for the label itself, I feel this is the only time I would ever feel comfortable with asking help for this one reason:
It’s a big responsibility and undertaking to start something like this, especially for one person, so it’s reasonable to ask for help at the very beginning. But beyond that, it is our own responsibility to carry that help, sustaining ourselves within our means, to a productive and positive future. I have received quite a bit of help from great friends like Vlad Spears, Jason Araujo, Chris Yap, and EACH one of these bold and beautiful Renegades who have braved the proving grounds of our intrepid Renegade Lights excursions. Without an avenue for my creativity, I can become very negative and self-destructive, so it is no exaggeration to say that these people have saved my life. I can’t help but put a great pressure on myself to make sure their contribution feeds forward with exponentially increasing momentum towards as great a benefit as possible. This collaboration is also our art. So shall it be, too, with your help on this first release. It feels right to gather friends and support when starting a new adventure. The initial energy of those friends and their support carry through the lifetime of that adventure like a blessing.
To put it more simply, we’re trying to have a baby shower for our media label.
We will do our absolute best to magnify the brilliance of the support and ensuing faith you put in us. We take your invaluable love very seriously.
Most of all, I am ecstatic and honored to represent these brilliant artists with this release. It is sure to be a priceless experience and a gem in everyone’s music collection. At the very least, I hope you will stay tuned to receive word of the release once it comes out, and that you will immensely enjoy every digit and groove when it arrives.
And Props To Part Time Sucker Radio for a brilliantly savvy and engaging radio show. You can hear the show which Ryan Searchl1te graciously hosted for some of our Renegades to appear on from Raja’s webhole, and be sure to check out the weekly radio show, Part Time Suckers Radio!
Renegade San Francisco artists are heading to Chicago. On May 20, 2011 we’ll be extending our Left Coast massive all the way to Chi-Town’s midwestern arena. Artists from both locations are joining forces to levitate the entire building occupied by Transamoeba Studios.
The second Renegade Lights show was smoking hot. Held at Il Pirata in San Francisco, the night was lit from open to close. Every performance on the evening’s roster came on at full tilt, the place was packed for the entire evening and the crowd was rowdy and appreciative. Thanks so much to everyone. We love you!
