Thursday we have something super special for you guys. Don’t miss out on the chance to see Hieroglyphic Being live. After years as a shadowy but palpable presence felt on the periphery of contemporary house music, Chicagoan Moss has of late, gained something approaching the wider recognition he deserves. It’s rare, in the aesthetically standardised and risk averse world of dance music “culture”, to encounter someone with such an idiosyncratic and uncompromising approach to their art – as producer (recording not only as Jamal Moss and Hieroglyphic Being, but also under other aliases such as I.B.M., IAMTHATIAM and The Sun God), DJ and proprietor of Mathematics Recordings, Moss has carved out a redoubtable reputation, wise enough to guard important traditions even as he’s restlessly seeking out new ground, eager to challenge himself and his audience.
Friday is Halloween! Dress up, stop by, and get fucked up. Vercetti Technicolor will be playing life. Vercetti has been making some of the most interesting 80’s synth trash you’ll ever hear.

This one’s gonna be a long one… We kick shit off on Thursdaywith an absolute legend. The Bebop Rodeo crew is back and they have an absolute ace up their sleeve.You’ve heard of Stones Throw right? Well, label boss and allaround dope dude Peanut Butter Wolf is gonna hit up the club this Thursday. His album My Vinyl Weighs A Ton, was the most acclaimed and successful release of the early years of Stones Throw. By 2000, Wolf relocated the label to Los Angeles, bringing the rapper/producer Madlib along with him, who became the center of the label for many years. When Madlib made Quasimoto’s The Unseen, a helium-voiced alter ego, Stones Throw reached a turning point. From then on, the label defied more and more conventions with each year. Excited as fuck.
Friday is finally time for another Mutiny! Dusty Kid (aka Paolo Alberto Lodde) was born in the first half of the decade that sanctioned the triumphant rise and the immediate fall of those phenomena defined by some ephemeral definitions like brokeristic-financial Yuppism, Reaganism-Thatcherism, and New Romantic dandyism, in other words in the middle of the 80s, of which's soundtrack was described by the distinctive but passing melodies of the Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Bronsky Beat, and Wham!. As a new enfant prodige if there ever was one, he immediately showed his natural talent for the variegated music world. At 10, after just one year of private lessons of the basic notions of piano and violin, he was admitted directly to the 6th year of the piano course in the conservatory of his native city. The rest, as they say, is history… Stop pretending like you care about the music, come on by, get wasted, and party like it’s 1984…

This Friday we start things off with something pretty interesting. Sinkane aka Ahmed Gallib will be performing live starting at 20:00. Ahmed has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the same time. From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a Pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa. After fleeing Sudan when his father– a journalist and politician – was exiled following a military coup in 1989, Ahmed was faced with a stark contrast when he moved to the predominantly white, Mormon center of Provo, Utah. While this and a subsequent move to Ohio caused a further sense of alienation in a young Gallab, it was also part of the inspiration for the path he walks as an artist. This background merges with the lessons learned from Ahmed‘s stints with obsessive craftsmen such as Caribou, Yeasayer and Of Montreal, and especially the monumental task he underwent as musical director of ‘ATOMIC BOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor.’ Gallab excavated and arranged a treasure trove of lost classics from the West African synth-pioneer to put together a now legendary series of performances. Alongside his band-mates in Sinkane (jaytram on drums, Ish Montgomery on bass, Jonny Lam on guitar), he also brought on guests Damon Albarn, David Byrne, The Lijadu Sisters, Money Mark and members of Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, and Blood Orange. Come Check it out.
