Time Warp US Announces Lineup: Dubfire, Richie Hawtin, No Regular Play+++

In Festivals, New York by Chris TartLeave a Comment

In addition to turkey, football, family and friends, Time Warp US is something I can be thankful for come Thanksgiving Weekend. The festival, which originated in Germany, has taken place for 20 years in countries like Italy, Progue, and Vienna. This year, it made its first appearance on non-Euro land in May when it landed in Buenos Aires. And now, AMERICA! Richie Hawtin and Dubfire obviously stick out of the techno-influenced lineup. The two innovators are amongst the best in …

In Colorado, DubEra by Jesse FilippelliLeave a Comment

As the sun began to set brightening the sky with vibrant pinks and oranges, Orchard Lounge started things off with some vinyl mixing. This was my first time seeing Orchard Lounge and was pleasantly surprised to see how the group took turns spinning records. Once night has finally …

Cityfox Throws a Warehouse Party: Maceo Plex @ 3AM

In DubEra, New York by Julian ColucciLeave a Comment

Over the weekend my dear friend Kate and I had the amazing opportunity to check out our first Cityfox party. Cityfox is a Swiss record label that describes its product as; “Always danceable, psychedelic and fresh electronic rhythms somewhere between techno & house.”   I’d be hard pressed to describe my taste more accurately. The location was eventually announced. The random warehouse 15 minutes from the Jefferson L train quickly turned into one of the busiest blocks in the 5 …

Antibalas & Hellbent Pay Great Tribute to John Lurie & The Lounge Lizards

In New York by Chris TartLeave a Comment

Last week I had the pleasure of watching New York’s Hellbent and Antibalas bands pay tribute to jazz legend John Lurie. Taking place at Greenwich Village’s Le Poisson Rouge, we strapped in for 3 hours of experimental jazz as performed by traditionally experimental musicians. Hellbent began with a strong opening set. Band leader Michael Blake took extended pauses in between songs to lament on his relationship with John Lurie and the Lounge Lizards. A particularly strong version of “Bob The …
