Yet again, Unsound festival continues to impress, this time with a newly unveiled playlist hosted on HypeMachine which lets you play music from almost every artist scheduled to appear at the festival this year. The player, which you can see above or check out on the HypeMachine site, has 35 tracks (with more coming soon) from artists like Julia Holter, Hype Williams, Ital, Monolake, 2562, Sepalcure, Teeth, Throwing Snow, Nguzunguzu, Distal, and more. The festival kicks off on April the 18th and goes until the 22nd. For more details, click here. To see a poster for the festival, follow the jump.
Each year the Unsound festival brings new, boundary-pushing music to New York, and this year’s lineup promises even more of the same. The Bass Mutations party presented by Percussion Lab & Dub War, happening April 21st in Brooklyn, boasts a jealousy-inciting lineup for anyone who’s unlucky enough to have to miss out. New York’s own Sepalcure will be playing a live A/V set, and both 2562 and Teeth will be making their live US debuts. Atlanta’s Distal, whose album is imminently dropping on Tectonic, will be DJing, as will UK-based Throwing Snow, and the talented en-vogue duo Nguzunguzu. Advance tickets are already available through Resident Advisor, and we suggest getting them very soon. Follow the jump for a full show poster and location details.
Good things come to those who wait, huh? About a year ago, I remember wishing the almighty two-in-one combo of 2562/A Made Up Sound would do a mix for URB; that unfortunately didn’t happen, so time went on doing its thing. Then one day, this mix showed up courtesy of 2562 and the lovely people at Fabric. Blending techno, house, and “future-bass”, 2562/AMUS is a technically sound and superb selective DJ, and along with a quick Q/A, he gave URB something to be happy about going into the holidays. He’ll also be playing an epic night at Fabric in London tomorrow night. Details on the night, the Q/A and the mix link after the jump. Enjoy…
