After a 2 year hiatus, A Family Affair Continues is back for one more show before Clay and Misha say farewell to Portland (for a few years). We thought it only seemed fitting to go out with a bang, bringing out our honorary Portland sister, T. Mixwell, to help us say goodbye. We have been so lucky to have such a great event that was accepted by the Portland House community with open arms. Many great DJ’s, promoters, and friends made this monthly event what it was; family getting down together! We are forever thankful to each and every one of you that we have shared the dancefloor and our lives with. This isn’t goodbye, it is only “Affairwell.”
T. Mixwell — Chicago
Beat Thesis, Beat Chemistry, Apt ...Entertainment
DJ and Producer, T. Mixwell offers dance floors unconventional concoctions of House, Techno, and Minimal; all stirred into one big melting pot of edgy, banging fun.
As a kid growing up on a significant diet of artists like Donna Summer, Temptations, Marvin Gaye, and Chi-lites, as well as Kwame, Earth Wind and Fire, Punk, New Wave, and Rock; T. Mixwell knocked out any preconceived notions of what type of music she would pursue when she followed her path towards her love of Classical Music. It wasn't until her early teens when she discovered her passion for House music while listening to her brother play a record by Lil Louis in his bedroom, and soon found herself going to parties/raves in the mid to late nineties. Pursuing her calling to move from dance floor to DJ booth, she became educated in the basics of holding a mix on a pair of belt-driven Gemini's and solidified her skills, quickly moving onto Technic 1200's and continuing forward without a glance back.
Currently T. Mixwell has been promoting her new label «Beat Thesis», playing at events across the world, and working hard on production projects in the studio. Releases currently out on Natural Rhythm Music, Ficus Tree, Native Soul Recordings, and Restricted Access to name a few. You'll find T. Mixwell and her Beat Chemistry brand every 3rd Friday on Sugar Shack Radio and 2nd & 4th Thursdays on My House Your House. Also Beat Thesis has a radio show every Thursday on Sugar Shack Recordings as well. When in Chicago, check out her «SPORK!» residency and 'Shimmy' nights with DJ Heather, a pop up event at various Chicago venues. She also holds down events held at LOKaL in Wicker Park Chicago. Afterwork Sessions every Tuesday & Nightcap every 4th Saturday.
