The Architects

Aarta and Douglas De La Fresca deliver some of the freshest new music in the Northwest as The Architects. Hailing from Chicago and Los Angeles respectively, they independently mastered their DJ skills in competitive metropolitan scenes with historic house music roots.

Both started Djing in their early teens and were playing main rooms before they were old enough to buy drinks. Doug has been throwing large parties in LA for many years and recently moved his production company, All Ours Entertainment, to Portland. The two of them met in 2009 and immediately made an impression on the scene. In the short time they have been working together they have had releases on Uniting Souls, Zoot Suite, Serial Sickness, 3345 Music with upcoming collaborations with Late Night Society and Alexander East. Look out for their newest release, a remix of “Housenation” on Uniting Souls Music due out in April.

The Architects also organize large house music events as All Ours Entertainment and host every third Friday in Seattle at Electric Tea Garden and every third Saturday at Groove Suite in Portland. Their style is versatile and exciting, always 2 steps ahead of the listener to keep you intrigued and surprised! With a bright future ahead of them, they consider themselves designers of music, vibe, and sonic experience, hence the name. . . The Architects.
