Shhhhhhhh! Andrea Graham is known as the Librarian, but don’t be fooled by her deceptively quiet composure. The Bass Coast Music Festival’s co-founder and music curator has been making some very loud noises up and down the Pacific Northwest for the better part of a decade. Her knack for blending total dance floor destruction with sly subtleties and hot new exclusives makes for a consistently accessible, yet undeniably future sound. Indeed, her festival’s carefully crafted music line-up is a perfect mirror of her style. Serving up a veritable who’s who of the West Coast bass scene and reaching deep both backwards and forwards, The Librarian offers up unabashedly hard-hitting low-end bliss paired with thoughtful, sophisticated chops.
In addition to curating and co-producing Bass Coast since its 2009 inauguration, Andrea has toured the Pacific Northwest club & festival circuit extensively (Shambhala, Symbiosis, Rifflandia, Tall Tree, Burning Man, Sync, Envision, World Ski & Snowboarding Festival, and more), and has performed as far as Costa Rica and midwest to Winnipeg & Wyoming. She has played alongside Pinch, J Kenzo, dBridge, UZ, Bauer, Dub FX, Silkie, Distance, Addison Groove, Machinedrum, Om Unit, Grenier, Kastle, TRUTH, Deadbeat, Marty Party, Excision, Zed’s Dead, Mimosa, Vibesquad, Ana Sia, Danny Corn, Reso, Rusko, Caspa, Appleblim, 2562, Stagga, Djunya, BSE, Kutz, & many more.
In summer 2013, The Librarian was officially made a member of West Coast’s notorious Lighta! Sound crew, joining deep bass pioneers Michael Red, Daega Sound, Max Ulis, Self Evident, Taal Mala, Mandai, Tank Gyal, Cure, & Calamalka.
The Librarian currently has releases out on East Van Digital and King Deluxe with more to come in 2014. Her weekly residency is in Whistler B.C. at Maxx Fish’s Really Good Tuesdays with Mat The Alien.
