Holland takes over Output this weekend; as two premier talents from the world of bass music (yeah, we’re getting tired of saying it too) stop by for a special session in Brooklyn. The combined forces of D.C.-via-Eindhoven badman Martyn (3024) and numerical master of the dance, 2562 (When In Doubt). As if that wasn’t enough, local support will come in heavy from the sounds of TURRBOTAX resident and NYC-via-Michigan maestro Contakt (Local Action). The best part of all this is that URB is giving away the exclusive promo code for your chance to drop down the price of admission. Because we love you and care about your nightly underground music intake. Check out the promo code instructions and flyer post-jump.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for a while now, URB is a big supporter of the Brooklyn rave institution RINSED, who has come back after a very short hiatus to smash things up again in the borough that everyone is flocking to. The team behind the event series has been careful in constructing tomorrow’s event, entitling it their “Welcome Home” edition. Now, before you run off and play Metallica’s “Sanitarium (Welcome Home”), we at URB would advise you to stop, because instead of that, you should really get hyped for seeing tomorrow’s special guests, Jacques Greene (LuckyMe/VASE) and Cashmere Cat (Pelican Fly). While you’re getting hyped up for that, you should realize that tickets for tomorrow’s event are going insanely fast, and there’s not many chances to grab a ticket, unless you want to try at the door tomorrow (more on that down bel0w), but considering how long we’ve supported RINSED, we were wondering if we could get an inside look as to what the two residents of the night (Dan Wender and Blacky II) would consider some current RINSED summer jams. They took to task and brought URB back some wonderful responses. Check out their tunes, as well as a way to get some tickets for tomorrow’s event, post-jump.
Tonight at Cameo Gallery, some heavyweight bass will be heard in a variety of flavors. If you prefer what’s next on the stratosphere of bass-fueled fantasia, look no further than Max Pearl’s set to start off the night; as the Sci-Fi & Fantasy label head will provide his indicative take on forthcoming sonic textures that are sure to take over NYC soon enough. However, if you’re looking to be courageous, look no further than URB favorite FaltyDL; he’ll be coming off fresh from his latest LP release, Hardcourage, on Ninja Tune. Finally, if you’re looking for booty-bomb kicks and toms, Addison Groove is here to deliver the medicine. He’ll be bringing his signature 808-centric show to Cameo for a special NYC appearance. Check out the flier and show details down below, post-jump.
Cosmin TRG had a fairly quiet 2012, but that doesn’t mean that he wasn’t busy. The Romanian producer unveiled plans for an upcoming album this week, due out on 50Weapons on April the 26th. Of the album, titled “Gordian“, Cosmin had the following to say: “Gordian is as much a document of my past year as it is the beginning of a conversation. The title references an ancient myth, but describes the very contemporary, impossible task of discerning between real and replicated, authentic and contrived. Coping with facts, objects, and bodies, the necessity of ‘making it’, fear of failure, fear of ‘not being happy’ are today’s topics, and Gordian is my attempt at an exploration of those issues.” Presale is already available for CD and limited vinyl, and you can stream the first snippet called “Noise Code” below. Follow the jump for album art and tracklisting.
With our final podcast of 2012 being a truly personal honor to share with you all, we give you the vibes of Jeremy Guindo aka Bambounou, at his finest. To say Bambounou took over this year would be an understatement, as not only did the Parisian producer have his most extensive year with releases, but he crossed over to the world of techno (just barely) with his debut LP, Orbiting, which was just released last month on Modeselektor’s 50WEAPONS imprint. Guindo is obviously looking towards the past and the future when it comes to his music and mixing, considering that this is the only beginning of an intriguing career for the young producer. And with the mix he’s given us to close out 2012 as well as our chat with him, we’re certainly looking forward to what’s coming up for Bambounou. Check out the mix, interview and tracklist down below.
