Gottwood 2014
Thursday 19th June 2014
Announcing its full lineup for 2014 in a move that pits the likes of the prolific Gerd Janson, Margaret Dygas, DJ Format, DJ Die and Appleblim, up against Calibre, Crazy P Soundsystem, Dense & Pika, Max Cooper (live), Craig Richards, Kris Wadsworth, PBR Streetgang, Maribou State, Ralph Lawson and Tale of Us plus so many more in its intimate forest setting, Gottwood?s annual celebration of the electronic underground makes an indelible impression.

A well-kept secret with a real kick, Gottwood was the smallest festival with the biggest buzz in 2013, and with tickets flying for this year?s Fifth Chapter it?s looking like another sellout success. This year, Running Back label boss Gerd Janson joins the party and Berghain?s best kept secret Margaret Dygas invites us aboard her minimal low slung rollercoaster.

Meticulous producer Max Cooper brings a live set, as does techno evolutionary Stephan Bodzin. Seminal drum?n?bass head Calibre will be joined by MC DRS, long standing Fabric mainstay Craig Richards makes an appearance, and techno tour de force Dense & Pika play live. 2020 Vision?s own Ralph Lawson, Berlin techno nuts Tale of Us, Detroit face Kris Wadsworth and resident of Berlin?s Panorama Bar Prosumer also get in on the action.

British hip hop luminary and turntablist DJ Format makes a stand, Munich techno prodigy Marco Zenker will play an analogue live show, Avatism brings his own brand of dark moody Italian electronica, high-energy collective Crazy P Soundsystem return, and Session Victim pull together jazz, hip hop and house influences in their live set.

Gottwood welcomes back the unstoppable Maribou State and online phenomenon and respected DJ collective Eton Messy for the second year in a row. Gang Colours provides ambient electronica, Bonobo tour support act Werkha brings a discerning selection of cuts, and catch James Welsh, beat fanatic and Compost Records star Jay Shepheard, heritage act Zero 7 (Dj) and XLR8R and Rinse FM linchpin Mr Beatnick in full effect.

The collaborative programming concept has allowed Gottwood to invite the finest and most influential promoters from around the UK and Europe to become a part of the festival. Two new hosts come to Gottwood, with London?s Percolate joining neighbours Future Disco, Nixwax and Tief, and Bristol?s Shapes joining the ranks alongside Hypercolour, Eton Messy, Fiftyone:27, Futureboogie and Real Nice. Then there?s SoC x Selective Hearing, and Hit & Run from Edinburgh and Manchester, Back To Basics, Brotherhood Soundsystem and Louche from Leeds, Waxxx from Liverpool, Newcastle?s Jaunt, Wigflex from Nottingham, Oxford?s Boxford, plus Munich?s SVS Records.

A unique and very special boutique festival celebrating some of the most diverse sounds of the underground, Gottwood is a jewel of a festival in the summer calendar returning in 2014 for Chapter Five.

It?s come a long way in the last four years, but Gottwood is still small, boutique and independent. Expect no sponsors, no corporate'ness' and no egos, just four days of underground electronic music in the depths of a Welsh forest?

See you there.

SHLOHMO
22nd April 2014
The Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave.,
"LA native Henry Laufer may be a young fella, but the 19-year-old producer, better known as Shlohmo, has rocketed on to our radar screen in recent months with his lo-fi, psychedelic mix of abstract hip-hop, dubstep-flavored wonk, bouncy synth-funk, breezy trip-hop, and what sounds like lost gems from the mid-'90s Mo' Wax catalog. Now splitting time between San Francisco and LA, in January Shlohmo will be releasing the Shlohmoshun Deluxe mini-album, so we decided to enlist him for the XLR8R podcast series now, before dude seriously blows up." --XLR8R

Mad Racket Presents Fred P AKA Black Jazz Consortium (NYC/Soul People Music) April 26th
26th April 2014
Marrickville Bowling Club
Mad Racket is very excited to anno unce that we have procured the ser vices of one of the most inspiring DJs going around, the one and onl y Fred P. Brooklyn-raised Fred Pet erkin has had a long and varied re lationship with music. He was heav ily into hip hop in the 1980€™s, first as a b-boy and later as an a spiring producer, as well as being an avid house music dancer at clu bs such as Red Zone, Sound Factory and Tunnel. A frustrating failed record deal for his hip hop materi al led Fred to leave the music ind ustry for most of the 1990€™s, wo rking as a security guard. In the late 90€™s he was introduced back into electronic music by a long l ost friend, and was again inspired to start making his own music. A self-released album came to the at tention of New York DJ Jenifa Maya nja, wife of Underground Quality€™ s Jus-Ed. Through Ed€™s guidance and support, Fred€™s music gained a much larger audience and the re st has been a journey from strengt h to strength. Fred€™s production s are deep, beautiful and otherwor ldly and his DJing is hypnotic and compelling. Don€™t miss this!!

The Bloody Beetroots
29th May 2014
The Regency Ballroom, 1300 Van Ness Ave.,
Imagine the love child of the Misfits and Daft Punk; the act of conception would be grisly, but what a mighty offspring their union would generate. A formidable figure a la Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, the polymath and producer behind the Bloody Beetroots. While Bloody Beetroots burst on to the scene in 2007, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo did not spring forth from the godhead fully formed. Born in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, in 1977, our hero started young, studying classical guitar and learning to sight read via the traditional solfge method (you know ?" like "Do Re Mi" in The Sound of Music). But his imagination was fired by other sources: The raw energy of punk and rockabilly music; the vibrant images and outrageous storylines of comics by Max Bunker, Benito Jacovitti, and especially Tanino Liberatore, creator of the cyberpunk RanXerox. "The secret is tying up thoughts and visions via the process called music," says Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo of his distinct aesthetic. "I'm a grown child who enjoys reading comic books of the 1970s, who never stops dreaming, and listening to punk and classical music. I'm disciplined and undisciplined at the same time." These contradictions allow him to change at a moment's notice, and eschew established patterns. "Unlike many of my colleagues, I hate to read biographies of those who did music and arts," he adds. "I prefer to watch, understand, and analyze the world by myself. My taste has to be influenced by something that is not art. I love to be struck by life." Nevertheless, as a youth Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo served his time in the culture trenches. After years of studying Chopin, Beethoven, and Debussy, he cast off the straightjacket of classical music-while still retaining its hard-earned lessons-and turned his attention to reconciling the new world of samplers and electronic music with his affinity for punk and '80s new wave. Pushing himself as a budding producer, performer and multi-instrumentalist, he embarked on a decade of variegated projects that Rifo now affectionately refers to as "exercises." Starting with his 1997 debut, a production for Northern Italian hip-hop stars Da Fam, he tore through genres like a child shredding gift wrap on Christmas morning: Film soundtracks, house, drum and bass, trip-hop, and more. As the climax of this dizzying string of well-received collaborations, he initiated his first genuine solo project, an electro-punk band with revolutionary visual style: Bob Rifo's Gang. At the instigation of his colleague Tommy Tea-his on-stage partner and longtime minister of propaganda- Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo then created Bloody Beetroots, an artistic alter-ego that would draw on all Rifo's experiences to date. Initially conceived as an all-inclusive way to package the live thrills of Bob Rifo's Gang with the excitement of dancing-till-dawn DJ after-party, the producer set to quickly establishing the Bloody Beetroots as a electronic musical entity in its own right. First up were "French Touch" icons Alex Gopher and Etienne de Crecy, who let Bloody Beetroots put their edgy, acid stamp on the respective tracks "The Game" and "Funk." With other French artists like Rin?Žr?se lining up for his services, within a single year Rifo cranked out 28 Bloody Beetroots remixes. But not to mark territory, so much as to respond to fellow artists from around the world, and poise Bloody Beetroots as a truly international sound. Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo is determined that this goal will remain central as the Bloody Beetroots star ascends, and their fame travels the globe. "I want to sit at the table with a Chinese person one day, and the next with an African, and the day after with a Vietnamese, and absorb their different cultures, to learn and to inspire myself and my music." In 2007, two pivotal releases pushed Bloody Beetroots to the next level. First, a vigorous overhaul of "Maniac," the percolating 1983 electro-pop smash from the soundtrack of Flashdance, an homage so inspired it won accolades from original composer Michael Sembello. Next up was "Discommunication," a futuristic disco redux of Timbaland's "Miscommunication." As original music and remixes by Bloody Beetroots began to bubble up in pop culture, via placement in episodes of CSI: Miami and prominent use in videogames, peers like Justice, Mstrkrft, Adam Freeland, and Martin Solveig were singing their praises in the press. Dim Mak founder Steve Aoki was an early, and passionate, convert: " The Bloody Beetroots is my favorite project right now. Bob?s remixes are some of my biggest bangers in my sets." He lost no time in snapping up Bloody Beetroots to release their Us debut, the Rombo Ep (with a full-length slated to follow soon). "The Ep summarizes much of my world," says Rifo. "You hear classical music, electronica, pop, fidget, punk. And the album will be even more comprehensive, because I want to incorporate new elements? all my musical components. I need that." Like so many things in the universe of Bloody Beetroots, the creative impetus behind Rombo came from idiosyncratic sources. "My inspiration comes from events affecting my day-to-day life, and my creative process takes place outside the studio," emphasizes Rifo. "For example, when while I was creating Rombo, I was also studying the Italian Futurists." To translate the innovations of composer and theorist Luigi Russolo (author of the 1913 treatise The Art of Noises), one of the earliest pioneers of electronic music, into a 21st century context, he recruited an outside observer: Fool's Gold recording artist Congorock. "I chose him because he is synonymous with bass. And while he opened the oscillators, I closed my eyes and tried to find that special sound. Once I had it, I opened them and mixed madly. Rombo was ready in an hour. This is what happens-I follow the moment." History has shown that the most provocative moments in art-the 1913 premiere of Stravinsky's Le Sacre du primtemps, the notorious 1981 show by Public Image Ltd. at the Ritz in NYC-can provoke civil unrest. The Bloody Beetroots inspire that same brand of revolutionary fervor, yet with exuberance, not outrage. There's a riot goin' on, and you're all invited. By " Kurt B. Reighley " ~axs

Jeremy Ellis featuring Applied Pressure
2014-04-12
Holy Mountain, 617 E. Seventh St.,
Jeremy Ellis has garnered attention across genres and continents, dazzling crowds with his unique live performances. In what has been described as the "greatest live use of a drum machine", Ellis is among the elite in live finger-drumming/pad-mashing. The Detroit native comes from a jazz-funk piano background that creeps out in his production as well. Jeremy Ellis pushes the envelope musically, both live and in-studio. For its 3 year anniversary, Applied Pressure has taken on a new project, recreating and reinterpreting DJ Shadow's iconic, "Endtroducing". Incorporating drums, synth, samples, bass guitar, and scratching into the live arena, the project is an extremely meaningful and ambitious one. "Endtroducing" is a common thread among the members, striking a chord as one of the first instrumental hip-hop records to break the boundaries of traditional, loop-based production. DJ Tats stands the test of time, as a pioneer in Austin's handfull of true turntablists. Dabbling in intrumental hip-hop, experimental, psych, IDM, prog rock, hip-hop, etc....Tats' sets are a true journey into sound.
