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.
This week’s special podcast comes from the mind of Houston-bred, Berlin-based “digital aesthetic” Lōtic. Signed to Brooklyn next-generation electronic label SCI-FI & FANTASY, the 23-year old producer dazzled us here at URB with his two-track scorcher “Sankofa/Glittering”, meshing together elements of ballroom, booming bass, footwork, industrial and experimental drone atmospheres to create a thoroughly unique sonic experience that will charm, confuse and cross dance floors. This is the epitome of “next shit”, people. With that said, Lōtic gave us a quick write-up of this special mix, entitled “The Weighing Of The Heart”; where he carved a path between the sounds of his own productions, his contemporaries, and his #feelings. For real. Check out Lōtic’s words, as well as the track list, down below. Happy hunting.
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.
