Body + Mind = Feb. 6th w/zooz

Coming off a rocking December installment (thank you again to Capt. Ridiculous and kumabear!) and a one-month holiday break, the “Body + Mind” monthly series returns on Saturday, Feb. 6th 2010. This month’s special guest:

zooz [aesop] – extended Live + DJ set
zooz at the 2009 philly laptop battle

If you were at the 2009 Philly Laptop Battle you saw zooz (aka Dominic Martin) throw down. Crunched micro beats, cleverly evolving groove, and animalistic samples coalesce in zooz’s slightly abstract, yet grounded minimal techno style. I am very excited to have him kick this event series back into gear.

With support from your host/resident :
Seanicus [Madison, WI/B+M] – DJ set

Captain Ridiculous (aka Jake Yaster) will be bringing some fresh heat to the night with some heavy-hitting electro and disco flavors from the 21st Century. Expect to get fuzz-jacked.

KUMABEAR (Brooklyn) – LIVE! Electro Tech
I saw kumabear play a set at the November 2007 Broketronica event at the old Inciting HQ. His chunky, funky, and jazzy electro techno stylings reminded me of how important live hardware is to techno. What will kumabear bring to the table this time? I can’t say, but I’m sure it’ll be sweet and of course it will be live.

BITCLIPR (Lancaster, PA) – LIVE!: Electrohouse
Bitclipr was born in the center of Pennsylvania to puritanical heritage. At age 7 he was given his first radio and a battle with pneumonia. Many nights he laid awake with fever and the sounds coming out of his radio. These sounds would later become hip hop and Baltimore house. Barely audible above the hum of a dime store humidifier, these sounds would serve as his inspiration to create a landscape of sound.

Funky bass lines and robotic grooves create the backbone for Bitclipr’s own take on electro house. I first saw Bitclipr when he opened for The Juan Maclean at Johnny Brenda’s last September. Great opening set! Very happy to have him help set the tone for this new event series.

Philly Laptop Battle – 1st round destruction!

Battle Flier

So I basically dominated the first round with this freestyle Reason jam using a bunch of samples from the song Malchik Gei by the Russian girl techno duo t.A.Tu. on top of a power trance re-work of one of my originals “In the Place of the Moon”. Round 2 wasn’t as great, and I didn’t make it into the 3rd round (although there was much disapproval and disappointment from the audience :). Here is the live, room mic recording from my first round performance:

Seanicus Autonomous EP 2007

A re-release of a demo, self-release. fun stuff!

here’s what I thought at the time:

This EP was my resistance to one type of techno, idm, synthpop, whatever, but keep the upbeat feel. self-released, demos.

1. Snakefoot – experimental reggaeton idm

2. Pecta (Swoh Mug) – spasm electro punk

3. Haat’s Revenge – space mission bowling alley
