Brian Schatzel, Adastra, is a Seattle-based music producer and DJ, known for blending melodic-focused EDM with pop sensibility, both in the studio and with his dynamic, high energy DJ sets. With residencies at multiple Seattle nightclubs, opening for acts such as Loud Luxury, Zeds Dead, Mitis, and Kryder, he has garnered experience adding his flexible style to a variety of genres. Overall, his sets are an electrifying mix of trap, melodic bass music, house, and drum & bass, usually mashing in nostalgic pop classics you'd least expect.
When it comes to music production, Adastra, who's name comes from the Latin translation of "to the stars”, often focuses his sound around a sense of sci-fi euphoria. Over the years, his original music has earned features and releases on several music collectives/labels, blogs, and YouTube channels. The past year has seen his first official remix for Monstercat artist, Disero, and his first release on Seattle powerhouse label, Simplify Recordings.
Aside from producing and DJing, Adastra has always been an advocate of growing and supporting the local music community. Whether it's co-founding a music production club at the University of Washington, or maintaining his "PNW Producer Radio" Spotify playlist, Adastra is always looking for ways to help local artists.
