BOOKING OFFER: DJ STINGRAY

Posted in Uncategorized on janvier 31, 2012 by debloque
Dear all,

I'm trying to book a date for DJ STINGRAY.

He's available on 28th April

Please find here under a biography and also click on:

New York cultivated, DJ Stingray has relocated and is already one of the
top djs in South Beach. Acquiring his Liberal Arts Degree at the
University of Albany, Stingrays' musical heritage is derived from his
father (a musician) and his uncle (also a DJ), both whose presence gave
him the tools and foundation to not only follow in their footsteps but
also to take it to his own unique direction. His first experience was at
the age of 10, learning the fundamental DJ skills from his uncle and
duplicated the spins, switches and mixes, and taking it a step further to
generate his own grooves and dimensions. A few years later he found
himself featured at the most legendary of the local hot spots in the
Bronx, including The Devil's Nest, Red Zone, Webster Hall, and many
others. Stingray has shared the spotlight of New York's world-renown Dj
scene with such talents as Larry Levan, Todd Terry, Junior Vasquez, and
Little Louie Vega to name a few. Then on to South Beach, DJ Stingray has
made his own mark on the scene. He has had working residencies in Miami
Beach in clubs such as Blue Lounge, Crobar, Space, N.V, and other
nightclubs. He previously inspired the masses as resident of such South
Beach legends as Liquid, V Lounge and Le Cabaret. Stingray's shows have
frequented every club on South Beach and have expanded his horizons to
Boston, Detroit, Philadelphia, Toronto, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela,
Aruba, Los Angeles and beyond; if you havent experienced him already, you
will soon. In the last year Stingrays shows in Colombia have grown from
the clubs to the Convention Centers and have become legendary, with
bookings well into 2012. This is a major achievement since the Electronica
audience in Colombia is regarded as one of the most educated and up to
date on the subject in the world, they know their Djs!!. Stingray is also
ensuring that his sound is heard around the world by drumming out tracks
for everyone to hear. The list includes "Get up and Go to Work", on SPF
Records (Sounds for People); "The Dance Floor is Now Open", on Prince
Charming Records, and numerous apperances on underground labels and CDs
and his latest and biggest hit so far Las Calles de Cartagena a song
featuring Humberto Pernett from Sony Music Colombia on the vocals and soon
to be released in Colombia, Spain and the USA. 2011 promises to take
STINGRAY higher, with a brand new record of all original music coming out
in Spain on the annis/bonita record label distributed by stereo
productions. In Colombia and the USA, the video of the song Las Calles de
Cartagena can be seen currently on Telemundo all over South America and in
the USA on MUN2 TV and on a3TV in the Miami area,. STINGRAY kicked off the
new year in Cartagena as one of the headline Djs on the Ultramar Festival
which took place on the 2,3 and 4th of January in Cartagena Colombia,
where other great Djs like Mauro Picotto, Marco Carola, Joy Kitikonti,
Corvin Dalek and many others played in one of the most exotic cities in
the world, he continued to Costa Rica, Salinas, Ecuador and Guatemala as
the official Dj of the 1st Playboy tour of South America followed by tours
in Colombia and April 23 as part of the Ultra Music Festival in Quito,
Ecuador with Djs Bad Boy Bill and a host of others. Currently, Stingray is
located in Washington DC bringing his world class skills and experience to
the DC scene.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Regards.

Alain

BOOKING OFFERS: MOVING FUSION + TUNNIDGE

Posted in Uncategorized on janvier 30, 2012 by debloque

Hello,
I’m booking some dates from late May 2012 onwards for MOVING FUSION and TUNNIDGE
They will come separately.
Please find here some useful words and some links to be clicked on:
TUNNIDGE   http://soundcloud.com/tunnidge
A new name to the scene, Tunnidge makes his debut for the home of heavyweight orthodox dubs, Deep Medi. ‘Geddeon’ is a static stepper that could have been produced anytime in the last 3 years, sticking as it does to the template laid down by Loefah on ‘Horror show’, all cavernous reverbed slowsteppers labouring under an all encompassing darkness. ‘Face melt’ on t’other side doesn’t let up, with another unremitting sludge stepper, pressured under the weight of a mammoth sub attack and clocking you round the lungs with some industrial strength snares…
MOVING FUSION   http://www.myspace.com/movingfusion
Moving Fusion exploded onto the scene in 1998 with the dance floor smashing heavy weight anthem Turbulence on Ram Records which went on to receive MixMags coveted Tune of the Year award. Ever since, Moving Fusion have been a permanent fixture of the Ram Records family and at the cutting edge of dance music production. The outfit have also enjoyed touring the world on a regular basis, mixing up the music that they love. Their debut artist album The Start Of Something confirmed them as a drum and bass outfit of epic proportions.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Regards.
Alain

BOOKING OFFER: ANTOINE CHESSEX

Posted in Uncategorized on janvier 27, 2012 by debloque
Dear all,

I'm booking some dates for Antoine Chessex.
He's available from 16th April backwards and from 21st/22nd April onwards.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=BE&v=Vc20XMcyobw

Antoine Chessex is a Swiss saxophone player, improviser, composer and
experimental musician born in 1980 in Vevey, Switzerland.

His works are based on the exploration of the physicality of sounds and
spaces.

Nowadays Chessex plays mostly as a solo performer appearing either in
fully acoustic settings where his circular breathing textures react with
the sonic architecture of the space he is performing in or amplifying his
horn with amps or PA systems and electronic devices often resulting in
intense live actions.

In addition to regular international touring as a solo performer, Chessex
has also been playing with the band Monno (Conspiracy Records) and
collaborating with different musicians like Thomas Ankersmit, Lasse
Marhaug, Zbigniew Karkowski, C. Spencer Yeh, Chris Corsano, Didi
Bruckmayr, Axel Dörner, Mattin, Dave Phillips, Valerio Tricoli, Hans Koch,
Kasper T. Toeplitz, Christian Weber, Matthew Bower, architect Christian
Waldvogel (Globus Cassus) and media artist Ulrike Gabriel(flow 2002-2003).

In 2009, he received a composition grant by the Swiss Arts Council Pro
Helvetia for the creation of DUST a piece for violins, electronic and
diffusion in quadraphonic sound.

I hope to hear from you very soon.

Have a nice week-end.

Alain

BOOKING OFFER: ASTMA

Posted in Uncategorized on janvier 25, 2012 by debloque

Dear all,

I’m booking a few dates for the Russian duon Astma featuring Alexei
Borisov and Olga Nosova.
They are available between 26th and 29th April.

Please find here under a biography.

Please also click on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9l4shHfQeyU

Next, I was very impressed with the Russian, improv-collaboration duo,
Astma (Alexei Borisov and Olga Nosova).* Pairing drummer/vocalist Olga
Nosova from the Russian noise- core scene and Russian industrial legend
Alexei Borisov (seriously were talking pre-’89 USSR here), Astma is a drum
and guitar-torture act incorporating looped electronics and disturbing
improv vocal performance. Playing in near total darkness, the two set to
work, seemingly unaware of one another and yet making music that
complimented each other in powerful ways.
If kung-fu styles could be applied to drum-kits, I would describe Nosova’s
style as drunken-master. She worked the kit in forceful, stumbling ways
that kept the listener off-balance the entire performance. Borisov played
his guitar effects pedals more than his guitar as he manipulated the
signal from it into all sorts of electro-glitches and worbles. Astma’s set
began with a spare sound and became increasingly dense as they introduced
new elements such as Nosova triggering a killer industrial backing loop
(the main instrument of forward propulsion in the set), or when Borisov
stood up and unleashed on his guitar. Both Nosova and Borisov did some
form of singing during the set, but it was completely alien in its effect.
Nosova sang in high-pitched eee-ooo’s that sounded like a female toddler
in-the-wild discovering and attempting opera vocal warm-ups; while Borisov
mumbled into the microphone sounding like a microphone sound-check coming
through the walls from the building two doors down. Astma’s set was
awesome and their 45-minutes of electro- industrial-noise left me wanting
more.

I would like to hear from you very soon

Regards.

Alain

BOOKING OFFER: JOHN WIESE

Posted in Uncategorized on janvier 23, 2012 by debloque
Dear all,

I'm booking some dates for John Wiese in partnership with Lee Tusk.
JOHN WISE is available between 24th and 26th March 2012.

Please read this review and also click on:

http://soundcloud.com/johnwiese

Out of all of the American noisemakers, California's John Wiese is among
my absolute favourites. Although like many of his peers his release
schedule is almost impossible to follow, with tapes, cdrs and limited
vinyl coming faster than Ron Jeremy's teenage understudy, he defined the
genre with the seminal 'Soft Punk'. Taking fragments of punk and hardcore
records, he pieced together an album which showed why American noise
differed from European noise (and Japanese noise for that matter) and to
these (battered) ears remains unmatched in the genre. Since then he's been
touring incessantly and anyone lucky enough to have caught him live will
know what I mean when I say his sets have to be experienced in the flesh.
'Circle Snare' was recorded on his January 2008 Scandinavian tour, a tour
I was lucky enough to catch at least a glimpse of, and this disc goes some
way to representing the visceral experience of the shows. Taking his
trademark Max/MSP concrete experimentation and throwing it up against
subtle drones, the album starts quietly, but before long we're dragged
kicking and screaming into deftly separated ear-pummelling noise. This
isn't quite the kind of amplifier destruction you might expect from Wolf
Eyes or their Mid-West set however; there is something more technical and
almost more academic about Wiese's knife-like processes. On stumbling out
of the Oslo venue where I witnessed this set performed, I remarked that he
was the "Autechre of noise" and I'll stand by that comment. John Wiese
makes noise that sounds like everything is in a specific place for a
specific reason - something rare and beautiful. It might be punk, but this
punk can play his instrument better than most. Startlingly good.

I hope to hear from you asap.

Regards.

Alain

BOOKING OFFER:THE BLACK TWIG PICKERS

Posted in Uncategorized on janvier 20, 2012 by debloque

Dear all,

In partnership with Lee Tusk I’m booking some dates for THE BLACK TWIG
PICKERS.
They are available between 20th and 24th March 2012.

Please read here a review and also click on:
http://soundcloud.com/user9979056/jack-rose-the-black-twig-pickers-sail-away-ladies-i-shall-not-be-moved

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qb9OXXtcXek

Appalachian folk maestros and erstwhile bandmates with Jack Rose, The
Black Twig Pickers return with a new album for Thrill Jockey (their first
release for the label), recorded last year in the Virginian town of the
title. As far as Americana goes, these guys are just about as authentic
and on-the-money as it gets, romping through traditional regional songs
(with a couple of originals thrown in) with an all-acoustic instrumental
set-up that supplements a bedrock of banjo, fiddle and guitars with
washboards, bones, fiddlesticks and jaw harp. Possibly the band’s greatest
coup is making their antique material current and vibrant; nothing about
this fifteen-song selection sounds like it belongs to a defunct or expired
artform. Recorded in single takes with no overdubs, Ironto Special is a
joyous listen, performed by terrific musicians who clearly have a
scholarly grasp on their cultural heritage.

I hope to hear from you asap.

Regards.

Alain
