FRIDAY OCTOBER 18
DAMN SON! DISCLOSURE is gonna be in the building..Which building you ask? Just the Hollyweird watering hole to the young and restless, SOUND.
Honestly, I am bumming that I can't make this event after having my mind blown by these two brothers at Coachella this summer. So if you haven't checked them out yet, trust me!
Disclosure are Guy and Howard Lawrence, siblings from Surrey, England who debuted in 2010, when they uploaded early material to MySpace. Surprised by the amount of streams and positive response, they linked with the Moshi Moshi label, which released the scruffy and rather noisy dubstep tracks "Offline Dexterity" and "Street Light Chronicle" as a single in August 2010. In 2011, the hyperactive bass of "Carnival" led a five-track EP of the same title, released for free and also trimmed to two tracks for its retail release via Transparent. The same year, they were sought for their first remixes: Jess Mills' "Live for What I'd Die For" and Emeli Sand√©'s "Daddy." They broke through in 2012, as their sound became cleaner, more reminiscent of U.K. garage, and more pop-oriented through collaborations with vocalists. A remix of Jessie Ware's "Running," released on PMR -- the Island-affiliated label to which they signed -- was something of a warning flare. November 2011's "Latch," featuring Sam Smith, peaked at number 11 in the U.K. and was quickly followed by February 2013's "White Noise," a collaboration with AlunaGeorge that reached number two. Eliza Doolittle contributed to the following "You & Me," which became Disclosure's third consecutive Top 20 hit. In the U.S., where the duo signed to Interscope's boutique sublabel Cherrytree, a brief EP titled The Singles, consisting of those three hits and a remix by Hudson Mohawke, was released in advance of the June 2013 album Settle
FRIDAY OCTOBER 18
SILENT SERVANT & MORE/VSSL
Like I promised, gallery shin digs aside‚ here is a deep dark underground that won't have hors d'oeuvres but just some really good music for you to chew on.
To celebrate their first cycle, they welcome back their first VSSL guest, Silent Servant!! Central American born Silent Servant has performed worldwide in clubs from LA, Berlin to Osaka. A chance meeting with Karl O'Conner in 1999 would establish a friendship that would open the door to the Sandwell District label in 2006. Silent Servant's sound is a reinterpretation of early '80s post-punk electronics, paired with the deep,metallic sounds of Basic Channel and Downwards.
Representing crossing over into a new year of VSSL, will be a blistering live set from Greenlander, the first artist on Remy's new techno imprint, Negative Flesh.
To ring in their one year loud and very fucking clear, TrueChord Sound Systems, with visuals by Sporay (Eva & Brock of Experimental Half-Hour)
