Behold the first wave.
Behold. The first wave.

It's never too early to start getting excited about the 2015 edition of Decibel, Seattle's massive celebration of electronic music, happening September 23-27. Not least because this year's big names so far include ambient maverick Tim Hecker, electro goober Dan Deacon, Seattle's own dark techno maven Raica, experimental R&B singer Shaprece, and avant-garde deities Autechre. Information's scarce on their website right now, but be sure to check back there or on our Decibel Festival Schedule for future additions and venue information.

The full, currently-announced lineup and details after the jump:
