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.
To start the year off right, URB has brandished a new look on every podcast, with invigorating and simplistic values that represent what we have in terms of our mixes. To start with that message, we begin with a mix from Rupert Taylor a.k.a. the elusively brilliant xxxy. Peeking his way into the hearts of many with his tunes released on labels such as Fabric, Infrasonics and Mindset, he’s become a sought-after DJ to pair up with his fantastic tracks. What’s intriguing about his mix for URB is that one would never expect someone previously rooted in 140BPM beats (now sitting around 130BPM) to put out a mix as diverse and as immersive as this one. Truly an impressive way to usher in the new year.
As mentioned before in my previous post on Unsound, it’s a festival that is known for enticing its demographic with risks, rewards and thematic atmosphere. With the theme of horror being the crux of the whole weekly event, there was ways that anything and everything could go wrong. However, just when one would think the undertaking of layering an entire festival with a theme would turn out horrific (no pun intended), somehow the curtain comes down to show off something off-kilter yet preserved in its magnificence. Unsound 2010 in Krakow, from start to finish, was one of the most daring and endearing festivals to ever come about. …MORE
Cosmin TRG provided one of the better house and funky sets I had heard in a long time at New York’s inaugural version of Unsound Festival earlier in the year, and ever since then, all we want is more select cuts and tunes from the dude. With a just-released darkside 12″ on Untold’s Hemlock imprint, he’s definitely got many more things going for him, such as this exclusive promo mix that he did for FABRICLIVE to let people about the upcoming event with Serocee, Addison Groove (LIVE) and Cosmin’s FIRST-EVER LIVE SHOW. Let’s not forget him and now-Brooklynite FaltyDL are playing a live show together in Krakow later this year at Unsound Festival 2010. The mix link (via Soundcloud), tracklist and D/L after the jump.
