"...fluid and spacey R&B beats that owe as much to Art of Noise and Philip K. Dick as it does artists like The-Dream and Chicago young blood Jeremih...songs like '/BLD' recontextualize brooding dystopian atmospherics and cosmic Italo rhythms into syrupy crunk beats that ooze with reverb."

▸ Big Once, the Red Bull 3Style turntablist CHAMP,
In a scene where anyone with a laptop and some software can claim to be a DJ, it is Once’s world-beating turntablist skills, unique live remixes, and energetic stage show that set him apart from others. These qualities have afforded Once to perform alongside everyone from the Z-Trip to Roy Ayers, direct the Vocalo 89.5 FM DJ collective, and record with legends like Pete Rock.http://www.bigonce.com/
The beauty of Magicks sound is that it is as accessible as it is indecipherable. This is dreamy pop music crafted by a psychick warrior. Equal parts pleasure and challenge to the modern ear.http://magicks.bandcamp.com/
▸MC and producer eLevation
A triple threat in his own right, ELevation A.K.A. DJ Uncle EL simultaneously wears the hats of DJ, MC and beatmaker. Making his name known around the web, EL is a two time, 1st place winner of the LA Sessions sponsored "Microwave Mondays" beat battle, and he's sure to bring the heat for us on the 18th.http://soundcloud.com/uncle_el
Designer, producer,turntablist, and co-founder of Join The Studio, Shardstyle skratches, glitches, and mashes out distorted experimental electronic music; a dense cluster of narrative tracks that shift and vacillate between freeform melody/sonic texture and aggressive, distorted dark-beats and drums peppered with skratching, anime and cyberpunk references. Wretchedly pretty, ugly glittering polyphony, resolved into singed harmonious tones.http://samrolfes.com/86221/779734/o/music
Along with our awesome line up we'll have live visuals projected by Theodore Darst and art hanging by members of Join The Studio's Chicago branch!
Here's the details:
>>Just $8, 17 and older, November 18th, at Reggies<<
See you there!
