At ‘Hide Out,’ Live Drummers and DJs Join Forces

Each month the DJs are accompanied by live hand drums from Tor Dietrichson, who throws down on the congas throughout the night, adding an organic and spontaneous flavor to the party.

Hosted by resident DJs Buckmaster and Robinson, the Hide Out at Substation has been running for nearly a year now. Tucked into the small and secluded Ballard venue, this monthly dance party (every third Saturday) is dedicated to the underground, but also brings in bigger names from time to time to keep things fresh. With lights, projections, and the overall sound quality, the team works hard to turn the vernue’s bare bones into something special. Each month the DJs are accompanied by live hand drums from Tor Dietrichson, who throws down on the congas throughout the night, adding an organic and spontaneous flavor to the party. This month, headliners Julie Herrera and Hyasynth took turns on the decks, bringing their superior skills, honed over many years in the game, and the dance floor was a little love-fest of smiling, friendly faces and happy feet.
