DJ Goo Goo is the alias of Travis Ritter, a Seattle-based record collector, DJ, writer, graphic designer, and the founder/curator behind Aesthetic Mess, a monthly showcase that happens every second Wednesday at Timbre Room, featuring local post-punk and electronic live acts and guest DJs. Ever since moving to the Pacific Northwest from Houston, Texas in 2003, Goo Goo has been a welcoming staple in the local music community through his undying passion for cutting-edge music, a love that follows him into his eclectic all-vinyl DJ sets, where he proudly carries on the traditional spirit and art of DJing through the simple power of a pair of turntables, a mixer, and a deep record collection. His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World finds him unearthing gems from his crates and unleashing a refreshing set of vibrant, off-kilter, and experimental underground cuts, from today and decades past, that span post-punk, synth-wave, techno, house, nocturnal pop, and much more.
