“There are a number of Italian electronic music producers that made the jump to international stardom. Luca Bacchetti, Davide Squillace, Marco Carola. But none has come with as defined—or, more accurately, refined—aesthetic as Donato Dozzy. Equal parts trance and techno, his sound is unmistakably his own, one honed over the course of years of DJing and production. In his wake, there have been a number of followers, producers putting their own spin on the dark and liquid techno that Dozzy has come to be associated with.”

- Todd Burns, “Italians Do It Darker”, Resident Advisor: (A MUST READ!)

Please join us as we welcome one of the most distinctive techno DJs and producers in the world to Pittsburgh for a very rare stateside appearance.

In 2009 a series of five anonymously produced ink stamped vinyl recorded releases appeared in the global techno scene under the mysterious guise “Traversable Wormhole. The series released exclusively on vinyl.

The sound of “Traversable Wormhole is a unique signature of sci-fi laden techno music with gaps of time, space & bass in between sound & rhythm. Within a month’s time of it’s conception Volume 2 of the series appeared and a huge buzz was soon amassed on the project. Accusations on who was the artist behind the project ran wild. People all over the techno scene had made theories to who was behind it. The project quickly received huge support from many of the world’s most renowned techno shops such as Rub A Dub , Hardwax, Juno & Decks. Word traveled fast through the wormhole and it was soon reported that globally respected dj’s such as Chris Liebing, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Mathew Herbert, Ryan Elliot, Andrew Galluzi, Surgeon, Function, Frankie Bones, Surgeon, DJ Deep & Radioslave were all supporting the sound of TW. With the series fast approaching into further galaxies with the appearance of Vol 3. Techno cult blogsite MNMLSSG ( tracked down TW via Twitter. A sonar ping was sent back to the popular blog and soon a “Traversable Wormhole” mix appeared anonymously on the site, receiving rave reviews. Their were also reports through the anonymous “Traversable Wormhole” Myspace profile† that dj’s from the dubstep scene were supporting the songs that had more of a broken beat structure in the series. As the series transgressed to Vol 5 by the year end of 2009 the mystique of anonymity continued to grow.??To usher in the very start of 2010 “Traversable Wormhole” would release the sixth volume of the series. At the same time 20 year veteran techno artist/dj Adam X originally from NYC and now residing in Berlin would be invited to partake in a feature called “Playing Favorites” on “Resident Advisor” the worlds biggest electronic music website. As Adam’s feature read towards the end he would subtly take claim as the producer behind “Traversable Wormhole”.

Join us as Adam’s Traversable Wormhole project is unwrapped in Pittsburgh.

Humanaut is proud to present:


(Underground Quality, Conneticut)

DJ Jus-Ed, the Connecticut-based veteran house DJ/Producer will touch down in Pittsburgh for an extended set of sexy, sunbathed cutting-edge house jams. With dance music roots planted in the 80s, Jus-Ed reemerged in 2001 following a brief retirement with his beloved Underground Quality imprint : a launch pad for neo-classic house jocks such as Levon Vincent, Fred P. (Black Jazz Consortium), and DJ Qu.  His long-running radio show, now a weekly feature on , has developed a religious following from veteran house staples, up-and-comers and audiophiles alike. Bring yourself, your appetite, a positive attitude and prepare your asses for an afternoon of outdoor Underground Quality vibes.

“Big Meat, Small Bun” (J “Rezon-8″ Feresse, Toby T-Bone)

Fast hands. Steeled nerves.  These are your marshalls of the grill – serving up the best dang smoked was-once-a-livin’-creature you ever had. You might say that ’round a campfire they could make more noise than “a jackass in a tin barn.” Men made of larger than life meat, making larger than life meat. Let’s hope your jaws are strong, your will hearty, and your bun big enough!

What we need YOU to bring:

MEAT WILL BE PROVIDED WITH YOUR TICKET – but we need some help with side dishes. Bring chips, salads, veggies, cookies, whatever you feel like.

BYOB – Bring your favorite beverages if you’re 21. Also bring your ID to get a 21+ wrist band. Bringing a cooler labeled with your name is recommended! We won’t have a lot of ice or beverage storage on hand for you, but we will have space to keep your coolers.

$10 presales available here:
More at the door…and food is capped to 150 so buy early!

Caley Martin is a gentleman jack of all nothings. He doesn’t come from a long line of mixologists, however he has laid it down and taken it to town with the Humanaut boys in Pittsburgh more than once, provided countless hours of quality online radio via his show, “Sonic Torsion” on MCast (, and been a wiley, goofy son of a gun in the process.

Martin’s influences are varied and tasteful, as you will soon notice during this two hour encroachment into your mind! Hour 1 features choice downtempo selections, while hour 2 ramps up into something more pulsating. Neither hour is beyond Caley’s domain, and soon neither will you! Enjoy!
