WW Seattle - Portland Takeover: Sappho

WW Seattle is proud to welcome selectors Tony Ozier, Kenny Fresh, Sappho and Ben Tactic for our first PDX Takeover. These four tastemakers are crucial to Portland’s nightlife and musical landscape. Between them, this 4-hour special covers everything from deep funk and adventurous techno to ambient textures and modern r&b. Enjoy this ride through the pulse of Portland, our PNW neighbour to the south.

Sappho is a queer musical artist, event producer, and co-owner of Koritsi Komma Records based out of Portland, Oregon. Harkening back to the most famous woman poet of antiquity, Sappho’s namesake has a strong connection to lesbian love and lady empowerment. Much like the fabled name that she built her base upon, she has often been the lone female voice amongst a sea of male creatives. With over 20 years of involvement in the dance community, she is a mentor to queers and femmes in the craft of deejaying and a resource of underground nightlife culture. She has been changing the status quo with her deep research, guided by precise, almost librametric, methods, branching into new forms and combinations that weave intricate modern-day poetry for a current generation of souls, freeing them, to dance, to love, to feel - the way only a perfect stanza of poetry could elicit.
