Bio: Corruptdata played the B&W Ball from 1998 to 2004 and only stopped because the band split up for 4 years ago. When we started playing together again, just a few months ago, we decided that we would play everything live with minimal to no sequencing. Our songs are never the same now and very organic. Sounds and moods are more experimental & take longer to form. To us the new sound is incredible and much better then ever before.

Miss DJ Jackalope
Playing at: White Ball, Saturday (11pm-12am)
Bio: In 2009, Miss Jackalope married the unsuccessful Jack Sparrow. The marriage faired poorly as Jack, taking his wife to the pirate haven of the 303, had a hard time supporting his wife. He eventually turned informer for the new governor, Dark Tangent, further alienating his headstrong wife. Disillusioned with her husband, Miss Jackalope transferred her affections to Captain Calico Jack Rackam. Rackam returned Miss Jackalope's affections by lavishing her with gifts. When Jack Sparrow refused Rackam's offer to buy Miss Jackalope, the couple snuck aboard a merchant sloop with a handful of Rackam's old pirate buddies and took over the ship. Thus began Miss Jackalope's pirate career. She's been resident jungle and hard techno DJ of Defcon ever since.

Bio: Birthed in a fiery caldera of an unnamed volcanic island in the South Pacific, The Scritch was raised on a strict diet of raw tubers, edible flowers and coconut water. Showing a clear affinity for heavy syncopated beats from a young age, he was schooled in the ancient art of the thunder drum by a blind shaman on an adjacent island. Fast forward several decades and we find The Scritch crisscrossing the globe, a neopagan hunter and gather of sonic artifacts that are crafted into a unique and memorable experience for the hungry, writhing masses. Equally at home in the booths of swanky clubs, on the floors of the filthiest warehouses and the wide open fields of massive outdoor festivals, The Scritch delivers the goods.

Bio: Undecided, otherwise known as Chris Shelton, was captivated by the scene in early 1998 and since then has been cultivating his own style of funky, hard-hitting breaks referred to as "That Nu-Funk Sound." In 2002, Undecided formed Urban-Breaks, a crew responsible for hosting multiple monthly and weekly breaks events in the Sacramento and surrounding areas. With the success of these events, he decided to further explore his passion behind the turntables and relocate to Seattle in early 2004. In Seattle his rising popularity was aided by close relationships that were quickly built with well-known local break-beat artists. Relocation also allowed Urban-Breaks the ability to add even more talented DJs to the roster and produce shows on a more consistent basis.
In June of 2005 Undecided found himself back in Sacramento where his crew returned to hosting monthly breaks events. In September 2005 Undecided and production partner Kiro sat down to work on their first breaks release in the Infected Logic Studio. This release found its way to popular UK breaks label Mob and received a remix from acclaimed producer The Rouge Element. With the success of his work with production partner Kiro, Undecided's exposure has brought new-found opportunities to advance musically while focusing more of his energy on solo production projects that give him the chance to create his own form of dirty funk bass lines.
Since the conception of the production duo "Kiro & Undecided", he has worked with a number of producers on original tracks including a side project under the moniker Trouser Snakes making dirty house music and production & DJ group The Bass Masons. Since his first release, Undecided has a collection of current and upcoming releases on reputable labels such as Mob, Mechanoise, Sango-Music, Muti and System.
With many years invested into the music his skills have allowed him to play with many talented Domestic and International DJs. A natural performer, his genuine energy behind the decks is unmistakable and his talents undeniable.
