~~~~~~~~~~~~~~{ AQUAMUNION: COMMUNION 2.4 }~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Water itself is graceful and cool. It is able to adapt to any element and flow to any corner. It goes by the path of least resistance, letting the flow be the guide. Water is formless, shapeless, and tasteless. It is pure in its original form and life-giving. On December 10th 2011 Cleverpillar embarks on a journey 20,000 leagues into the unknown deep as we celebrate all things H2O. We will commune once again and sink into AQUAMUNION : COMMUNION 2.4. The U.S.S. Cleverpillar Crew has outdone itself this time with larger than life art installations, interactive water walls, even a liquid dance floor to groove on as we melt into the eternal waves of bassy bliss. Join us for the 16th installment of COMMUNION as we submerge into creativity and community. All passengers come aboard and batten down the hatches cause this ship is going DEEPER....

Brian Gardner
may have discovered his passion for DJing by accident, but his success is far from accidental. As a veteran of the Chicago House music scene for more than 15 years, Gardner has emerged as a versatile DJ and producer who manipulates everything from Deep Soulful House, Jazzy Jackin beats to the harder sounds of Industrial and Minimal Techno. Over the last fifteen years Brian has also brought in an array of top-tier House talent while promoting the underground vibrancy that makes the city's house scene glow at venue's such as Boom Boom Room at Green Dolphin, Ohm, Smart Bar, Moonshine & Darkroom as well as Loft style events. Make sure and check out www.soul-foundation.com www.djbriangardner.com for more info & upcoming events & www.deepgroovesmastering.com for all your vinyl mastering needs
"Acid, deep, jackin', old school—I'm not limiting myself to any one genre of House," Gardner says. More recently, his style has taken him the route of "deep boompty house," which are slower beats characterized by big vocals. "I'm not interested in putting people to sleep," he says of his performance style. "Good music is just good music." Check out his latest release on www.realdeeprecordings.com, www.minuendo.net, www.btmgmusic.com

Funk and Soul, Big Drops and Funky chops, that’s what Justin Nemesis is throwing down! From Chicago house, minimal techno, acid and disco to drum and bass, hip hop and west coast beat- Justin found his passion when his big sister took him to a rave in Chicago when he was only 15. He has since dedicated his free time to learning about multiple genres of music and perfecting his DJing skills. Vinyl was his first love and after a decade it continues to be his favorite way to mix. Justin has had several residencies in Chicago and played at hot spots including Smartbar, Green Dolphin, Funky Buddah Lounge, Zentra and Evil Olive, alongside favorites like Paul Johnson, James Curd, Gene Hunt and Justin Long, to name a few. Look for him at clubs, bars and parties. Dancers will not be able to sit down during this set!

Noble aka No Boats ( TRUE FAMILY UNIT / Barrel~dEM / Solarium Deluna )
After hearing 808 State and The KLF back in 1992, Noble aka No Boats became hooked on house and really anything with a beat. His youth was spent attending weekend rave parties all over the East Coast, often travelling with a friend who sold water, candy and raver accessories ~ these PLUR induced moments would become the foundation for the type of vibe he was looking to create with his music. When he picked up his first Technics and a mixer in 2000, extra money was always quickly spent on vinyl. By that time, he lived in Chicago, the House music capitol, so finding good tunes wasn't a problem. He's always listening to new stuff while remaining true to those classic anthems we know and love. A true DJ, Noble has played clubs, birthdays, weddings, house parties, yoga studios, pool parties in Times Square and dirty warehouse parties in Brooklyn and Chicago. Wherever people want to dance and have a good time is where you'll find him.
Noble aka No Boats is the founder of Barrel~dEM (barreldem.blogspot.com), blogging and throwing parties, DJ Competitions and events in and around Chicago. He is one of three founders of Solarium Deluna (www.solariumdeluna.com) - an Artist Collective in Chicago, monthly resident DJ at Synphoria (www.ilovetosyn.com) and co-producer / promoter of When Skills Turn Deadly (www.whenskillsturndeadly.com) held monthly at the world-famous Gramaphone Records.
