Modular seeks to expose our community to sounds unheard with an inclusive vision and pedagogic mission. Established to satisfy inquisitive minds and feverish feet — this weekly dance event is focused on local tastemakers showcasing domestic and international selections that they draw inspiration from.
This week we are excited to host IVVY.
— At the forefront of Seattle’s techno renaissance, Madi Levine (they/them) is keeping their love of hardware and capital letters alive through newly adopted moniker IVVY, a project giving form to their interpretation of live, visceral and punishing warehouse techno. IVVY’s live sets have provided support for DJs and live acts such as Silent Servant, Kangding Ray, Etapp Kyle, Antenes, DVS1, and Ryan Elliott. Their releases have gained attention locally and afar, their most recent EP, «Safe Within», receiving the following praise from Seattle Weekly:
«Levine creates techno that’s imaginative yet stalwart and “inspired by the hours of 2 to 7 a.m.” They’ve been lauded locally and across the continent for their hellfire live performances, and their new release Safe Within, on the Transfusions imprint of Seattle’s Medical Records, offers four diamond-cut bangers that will inject energy into clubs and headphones alike. IVVY sounds the way it feels to be drawn out into the ocean, pummeled by wave after tireless wave, only to emerge clean. Like the ocean, IVVY’s tracks are full of power and peace in rhythm.» — Cate McGehee
IVVY's emphatic live sets have earned them features with crews such as Surface Tension (SF), Ethereal Beatbox (NYC), Evlv Tech (BOS), Vague Output (BAL), Fine Time (LA), and secondnature (SEA), projecting them towards festival sets at Okechobee Music + Art Festival 2017 and Upstream Music Festival + Summit 2017.Despite this trajectory of success, Levine manages to remind us all to ask one another why we come together on the dance floor in the first place, and concludes that «if it’s ego-oriented, you’re in the wrong place.»
