For all the hard work of the promoters, artists, and clubs here in town, Portland is still not looked upon as the dance/electronic music mecca that it truly is.

Don't believe me? How about you listen to this amazing mix put together by Atole of all local synthpop artists. Everyone from Miracles Club to Strategy to Jeffrey Jerusalem to Grapefruit is represented, and it is a 45-minute long thing of beauty. 

And if you like what you hear here, you can see many of the artists represented within at this year's Superfest - an all-ages dance party benefiting Music In The Schools that includes headlining sets by Glass Candy, Magic Mouth, and Béisbol.
