Moorhead, MN

Pistol Pete's old building ([ Yahoo! Maps ]) behind the Safari Theater in Moorhead has received a face lift and will open as CLUB ECLIPSE, a dance club/bar on THURSDAY, AUGUST 11th. CLUB ECLIPSE will initially be open on Thursdays and Fridays. This place has pumpin sound and a brand new lighting rig. Stepping back into club mode, DJ JOYRIDE is ECLIPSE's house DJ until he leaves for an 8 week trip to Pasadena, CA in mid-September.

September is bringing the biggest changes within Icedbreaks since Arson moved to Portland and Peak 19 to Minneapolis nearly 3 years ago. DJs Star IV and Joyride have been pushing the Icedbreaks sound over the F-M airwaves for the last 6 years on KMSC Dragonradio and KNDS Radio Free Fargo. Having both graduated this past spring from Minnesota State University - Moorhead, they are headed to the Pacific coast.

» STAR IV » Portland, OR
Message from Star IV:
ok ok. so i'm moving to portland in mid-september. driving out to the coast with matt berg. living with my girlfriend lindsey, and our friend carrie. the reason for this message to you all is this, i only have a limited time before i go, and i want to hang out with you at some time. like i know i need to have dinner with my brother. caleb and sam i'll have to see in montuky. and i'm sure you folk in minneapolis i'll have to travel to see too. but either way i want to see you before i go. i might be CAhaving a party at my apartment around my birthday, but that's a party, i want one on one, or at least small gatherings.

get back at me!


» JOYRIDE » Pasadena, CA
Message from Joyride:
Well, it's finally time to start working all of the networking connectionsthat I've made throughout my college career. EBLAW Entertainment has invited me to intern at their studio in Pasadena! My focus will be maintaining and running the ProTools workstation and building EBLAW's website. I will also be working part time on a marketing team at a urban FM radio station in San Diego. My stay is much less permanent than Travis', currently only planning 8 weeks (Sept. 12 - mid Nov. ). Until then, the summer is just starting to heat up with the opening of CLUB ECLIPSE.... I hope to see you all out there.

Refreshing Sounds on the way....

| More

Sinfully, it has been too long since I've posted on this blog. Since April 27, here is what has been going on with the crew...

• The COP PORN show in Mandan, ND was a bust. I had a great weekend out with STAR IV and DEXTRIOUS. Got to play some great disc golf courses and entertain a dope afterhours, but for the most part, Jokers was empty. Maybe it was a Mothers' Day conflict that kept people from attending.

DJ Clarity is moving to a new residence in N. Fargo. If you live on Broadway, keep your ears perked up for some wikked bass.

STAR IV has made a couple of trips to the Duluth area to represent. Keeping the Villas alive with Hardcore Tim is a difficult task, but STAR IV was there in full effect. He played with OLEE at Rudy's and rocked the villa for hours.

Icedbreaks is in the process of purchasing a small Mackie Active PA system. We will have use it for all future house parties and DIY events.

STAR IV and CLARITY played for YOUR BREAK BEAT MY BREAK on May 21. Event info is on this blog and event comments are here on Saboingaden.

• I (Joyride) has been pryed away from the speaker stacks at the East Gate Lounge in leu of the jukebox. A bad move from our point of view, but what can you do. All apologies to you who really dug that sound.

• The last time we fired up the stacks at the East Gate, DJ ARSON was there to light up the new dancefloor on his SEX | POWER | OBSESSION homecoming tour. It was a great time with performances from ARSON, SPECIAL ED, STAR IV, IVORY DOME, DEADPAN DJ, and KOALA TEA. The sets from that night are available here and pictures from the second venue are here.

All The Muzik (ATM Netwerk) presents C'MON RIDE THAT TRAIN on June 24th. Performances by MAN FROM DISCO alongside SPECIAL ED on auxillary percussion, JOYRIDE, BAKTATR (back from Humboldt), and a SPECIAL GUEST. The show is at the Great Northern Brewery... more info here.

• Plans are in the works with Grindthieves, International for a new monthly event at the Fargo Theater. Stay tuned for more information.

That should pretty much catch you up...

123 21st s - moorhead - mn - usa
$5 / 9pm-2am / 21+


the first ever all jungle/drum.n.bass event in the fargo/moorhead area, featuring multiple marathon workout dj sets from fargo/moorheads favorite purveyors of jungle and drum.n.bass:

grindthieves, international/skrmpf/916 /
long time fargo favorite, every time he hits the decks its a little different and a lot of dope. wicked selection and turntable trickery. oh, and that goofy dance, too.

icedbreaks/impending doom radio
as the only full time jungle/drum.n.bass dj from the icedbreaks collective you can rest assured that clarity is on point. tough dancefloor party rockers and a keen eye to detail guarantee a wicked set everytime.

icedbreaks/lust junction /
bring it back to the oldschool, star iv is going to put down the sissy music for a night and kick like he used - rough, tough, and dangerous! do not miss this, a rare treat, as star iv knows the sounds and has got the goods to deliver them!

grindthieves, international /
come out and say hello to the newest member of grindthieves, international! this cat has been keeping a low profile for the last few years while slowly perfecting his craft and fine tuning his taste. he can kick out a nasty techno set, but tonite hell show you the drum.n.bass side of our newest member!

with a special live performance
grindthieves, international/good fortune sound records /
back from the proverbial grave, artbreaker has been putting in the work at the lab cooking up the hot new sound in midwestern jungle and drum.n.bass thats got people like general malice and audio1 taking note. tonite will be a special return live p.a. and will feature live mc work by the master of cermonies for the night, who artbreaker is collaborating with for future vinyl releases!

and the master of ceremonies
south moorhead, mn
if youve not seen this cat rock the mic at quite a few parties and shows over the last few months, be sure to come see whay hes hosting the nights events! having the sick flows, the clean voice, and the sense to know when to grip the mic and when to put it down, this cat will bring the night together!

"MY BREAK BEAT YOUR BREAK" is an all day jungle/drum.n.bass celebration, so get ready and be prepared to hunker down in the trenches for the long haul. we will begin the day with bbqing, beatbreaking, bocce ball, beer drinking, and bitching at DEXTRIOUS' place. we will then move to East Gate Lounge for the nights true festivities. afterwards we will then make our way to GZEs place where he will be hosting our beerdrunk and beatbroke asses until we are done... whenever, however, whyever that is. E-Mail either ARTBREAKER or DEXTRIOUS for details, directions, etc.

we also want to take a second to shout out or boy SONAMI, as he will be heading off to iraq in may!

stay tuned to the websites for more information:

Top Secret House Party

| More

Icedbreaks is hosting another houseparty on Saturday, March 5th.

The details of this event are TOP SECRET. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to acquire the location of the event, penetrate this party, and proceed to get down with the coolest djs in town.

An inside operative, HAL, has infiltrated the host's secure server to recover a file that is suspected to contain the address of the party. HAL has placed a link to the file on a small dance website based in Fargo, North Dakota. Look here.

Agent 420, this is VERY important. This top secret file is encrypted. You will not be able to view the document without a password. The password is the moniker of the head DJ of Icedbreaks Entertainment. HINT

I wonder who else raved last night? If you made it to the Gisi afterhours, you were privvy to a great (and very rare) experience. It was like being back at 916 (happy birthday Trish) again. Dark room, one colored light, dancing in the darkness... totally fantastic!

Nigel Richards really kept the night going after a couple great sets from Clarity and Dextrious. What I'm sure of is that the afterhours went off last night. Shortly after Nigel's set, the night died out... but what do you expect in Fargo at 5am? All in all, an A++ night... Thanks Jason.

I've got some studio stuff to attend to and some fresh music to find. Tune in to Radio Free Fargo at 7pm (cst) tonight for my radio program, THE F-M EXPERIMENT. Click >>HERE<< to link directly to the high stream(96k) or >here< for the dialup stream (24k).

Studio back in action!

Awww yeah! The studio for the coldest of the cold has been re-assembled! Last night's drinking at home payed off. My MOTU Recording system has been re-installed, the off-kilter tables have all been made level, and speaker shelves have been hung.

I'm still missing the power conditioner for my MIDI interface, but as of today the room sounds great!

My favorite stream...

| More

If you've ever wondered where DJ Joyride gets his stylistic influence, you can hear it first hand with your favorite radio stream application.

Especially when I'm studying or working on hands-on projects, I am constantly tuned into Limbik Frequencies! They've got the best and fastest growing of DUB and GLITCHY ambient tunes, many of which I can't find anywhere else on the web. Most of these liquid tracks come from abroad; featured on sites where english is clearly not the language of choice. The music that I deejay certainly doesn't sound like this, but I think that this stream puts into my head the flow of my sets.

A really nice feature of this stream is the ability to request songs via the Limbik Frequencies Homepage, at

Tune in for just a half an hour and I'm sure you'll have an experience you'll wish you had discovered years ago! ;o)

Have a good one!

Well, here it is. It seems that I've finally learned a totally new
technology. Here's to hoping that this blogging thing could really
expand the audience of Icedbreaks. I don't totally understand all of
the cool things it can do, but if I've got it all in my head right, it
could really bring a community together.

I hope to eventually send out announcements immediately when a new mix
gets posted. It'll be received by Icedbreaks fans that subscribe to our
*New Mix Notice* Blog feed and they'll get a notice in their browser
that a new mix is available... You'll then be able to click a link and
voila... the freshest music straight to your ears. I'm still trying to
get my brain around it, so bear with me.

I hope you look forward to growing with Icedbreaks as new ways to stay
in-touch emerge. This blog thing could be big... I've already got the
ability to call in MP3 recordings from houseparties... Directions
anyone? Woop!!!

Lets get it started...

| More

Man, do I HATE that song... BEP, eat it.

On a brighter note, today is a GREAT day! I received some fresh vinyl today from Juno Records in the UK ( - in case you need a fix, too). Its like having Christmas any old time of year. I totally dig it!

Also, my cold/flu/plague has lifted from upon me!

I'm keeping this first one short... I'm anxious to see if this 'blogging' bit actually works. I've never been a web-file guru. I can make the web work, but when it comes to adding features... well -- Maybe you've seen my message board... its basically a hack.
