Late Night Science Feat. Donald Glaude
19th April 2014
Temple Nightclub, 540 Howard St.,
Crush 1 Year Anniversary> Presented by Lara Brasil and Surreal SF Music by: Late Night Science feat. Donald Glaude Special Support by Darin Epsilon Confident. Exuberant. Raw. Innovative. These are just a few of the words industry insiders and fans have used to describe the talent behind one of America?s favorite house DJs, Donald Glaude. Ranked 68 on DJMag.com?s Top 100 DJs List in 2005, Donald skyrocketed to 48 this year and his genius keeps on growing? Born in Tacoma, Washington, Donald?s love for music began at an early age. Originally a disciplined student of classical music, he was well-versed in the upright bass and violin. Any aspirations Donald had to continue in the classical vein vanished once he heard his first house record. With an ear for blending music already under his belt, and a love for the energy and soul of musical prodigies like George Clinton and Funkadelic, Donald began to amass a collection of house records which he taught himself to mix with a pair of mismatched turntables and a Radio Shack mixer.Before Donald few DJs had attempted to spin house records. Donald?s fine ear helped him give birth to a new style. After mastering his craft, Donald began DJing in various clubs around Tacoma and Seattle. During that time he made several important connections which would launch his music to the forefront of what was quickly becoming one of the largest underground movements since New Wave in the late-70s. Perhaps the greatest connection Donald made was with another aspiring DJ and friend, DJ Dan. Together Donald & DJ Dan sparked the rave scene in Seattle and developed large followings. Knowing that Donald possessed an energy and ability to work the crowd that was unparalleled to anyone else on the circuit, Dan convinced San Francisco?s legendary Funky Tekno Tribe to bring down his good friend Donald to play at one of their parties. Donald?s talents quickly made him a permanent fixture on F.T.T.?s roster.Some DJs seek commercial acceptance. Donald, on the other hand, has always preferred an emotional connection with his audience. For Donald, house music is not simply a mixed bag of sound, but rather an experience that provokes the soul. Apart from his mastery on the decks, Donald is best known for his dynamic showmanship. He enjoys his music as much as his audience does. Embracing their energy, it is not uncommon to find Donald pumping his hands in the air, jumping up and down and shouting back his love to the crowd. It is this powerful signature style which has led fellow DJ and musical producer, Dave Aude, to call Donald the ?James Brown of DJs.? Donald also caused some stir in 2005 and 2006 with his residency at Ice Nightclub in Las Vegas. Donald?s uncompromising style and innovation show no sign of slowing down any time soon. With the credit of 5 full-length CDs and numerous remixes under his belt, Donald has focused much of his time to production work. Producing such dance floor hits as ?Get Up? and ?Soul Cha Cha?. As such, Donald has launched two record labels in which are causing rumblings in the industry...

The new single Against It carries these ideas with a hint of krautrock and shoegaze.

Damian Lazarus
16th May 2014
Monarch, 101 Sixth St., San Francisco
Since the moment he spun his first record, Damian Lazarus's mission has been a clear and urgent one: to blow away the mediocre, the overinflated, the obsolete; to seek out and celebrate the energetic, the important, the new. Always rebelling, always going places, "?and to have fun in the process. Playing around with different styles and ideas is what I do best," Lazarus explains. Driven by an almost childlike curiosity, a vivid imagination and wicked sense of humor, he's used his role as a DJ, label owner and now musician to nurture and share the most exciting and experimental music on the planet. Drawn to the darkness, but buoyed by the light, ever ready to embrace new ideas and different perspectives on music and the dancefloor, Lazarus is always ahead of the curve, with a wry smile on his face and a neat trick up his sleeve, How many DJs do you know who've played 'Reviewing The Situation (from the Oliver! soundtrack, no less) half-speed to a jubilant crowd at DC10 in Ibiza. How many DJs do you know who've received a sitting ovation on the dancefloor? Lazarus was born in London, where he lived until last year, when he relocated to Los Angeles. During childhood, Damian was naturally drawn to classic pop music, and inherited from his grandfather an affection for showtunes which continues to exert itself in the strangest of ways. He spent his teens immersing himself in the sounds of hip-hop, electro, soul and funk, before discovering house, hardcore and jungle at university - sparking a love of twisted, innovative dance music which endures to this day. After working as Music Editor then Assistant Editor at Dazed & Confused, Lazarus joined London Records and in 2001 became head A&R of the City Rockers label. Here he helped sign and release some of the biggest tunes of the era, including Felix Da Housecat's 'Silver Screen Shower Scene' and Tiga & Zyntherius's 'Sunglasses at Night'; his Futurism and Futurism 2 compilations remain the definitive documents of electroclash, not only providing a snapshot of the underground at that crucial moment in time, but mapping its future too. Damian received a major Djing break in 2002 when he was invited to spin at Barcelona's Sonar Festival and by 2003 he had residencies at some of the best club spaces in the world. His tenure at Circo Loco (DC10 Ibiza) has become the stuff of legend and found him consistently breaking boundaries of sound and stamina, freaking out the dancefloor and taking those on it to places they never knew existed, and may never get to again. "I thought a lot about these dj sets when pre-producing the album; especially the idea of placing off and strange melodies within a 4/4 dance music structure. It's amazing what you can achieve when you're into weird stuff", he says. Inspired by the new energy and possibilities in international club culture and music, Lazarus founded Crosstown Rebels in 2003, the label's records offering all kinds of unique and twisted angles on cutting edge electronic music. Recent releases on Rebels from Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler and Riz MC have found the label consistently breaking new ground and the new imprints CDR (a digital only label) and Parkside Rebels (a more leftfield pop label) are set to change the rules once again. A year ago, Damian began Lazpod (http://www.lazpod.com), a monthly excursion into weird and wonderful sound, a radio show that draws influences and inspirations from all corners of the musical spectrum and is delivered in a fun and laid back style. With many thousands of fans across the globe, Damian uses the show to let listeners in a little closer to his experimental and eclectic tastes. "Lazpod is a great entry point for new listeners to my music", he says, "and has been setting off warning signals of what might be coming on my album for some time". A number of popular and critically acclaimed mix CDs have appeared in the last five years, charting Damian's personal development as DJ, listener and supporter of new artists: Rebel Futurism (2004), Rebel Futurism (2005), Bugged out presents Suck My Deck (2005), Get Lost (with Matthew Styles, 2006), The Other Side (2006) and Sci:Fi:Lo:Fi 2: Night of The Dark Machines (2008). Damian's hotly anticipated debut artist album, Smoke The Monster Out, is another expectation-confounding gesture from this restless musical mind. Released via Get Physical, the album boldly steps outside the realm of what one might hear in a Lazarus DJ set. Featuring his own vocals and riding a vast plain of influences - Neil Diamond to Photek, Bjork to Jeff Buckley - Lazarus demonstrates his keen ear and meticulous attention to detail in a collection of heartfelt, grievously honed tracks delivered straight from the soul. It's a sensitive record, a bold record and above all a celebratory record - one which revels in the pure pleasure, healing quality and dream-potential of music. "It took me a while to start producing", he says "but once the juices started to flow I knew immediately that this was to be the best musical project I ever created". A groundbreaking live set to accompany the album has been built from scratch, enhancing different elements and including new club versions of the more introspective album material. Featuring decks, effects (no laptops) and a live visual show, this club tour will debut at the legendary SXSW festival in March 2009, continuing onto Miami WMC with a DJ session at his own Crosstown Rebels party at Electric Pickle, and culminating in a live set for Get Physical's event at the Winter Music Conference. A subsequent live tour featuring onstage collaborations with producers Luke Solomon, Arthur Jeffes and vocalists Taxi Taxi is being developed for later in the year. Damian Lazarus is a believer in giving people something exciting, unusual and idiosyncratic. He lives life to the limit, always rebelling, always moving forward: that's Damian Lazarus.

Camelot Lounge, 19 Marrickville Road Marrickville NSW 2204

Variously described as Garage Cabaret, Gypsy Punk, and Gangster Jazz, Waiting for Guinness has been playing the Sydney pub/club scene for years. They may be one of the best dressed too. The band features up to seven pieces including banjo, trumpet, saxophone, trombone, accordion, guitaron (Mexican bass), flute, guitars and drums.

In the tradition of artists such as Tom Waits, Calexico and The Pogues, Waiting for Guinness take their nourishment from ‚€˜old music‚€™ and hot-wire the styles of Berlin Cabaret, Mariachi, Vaudeville, Spaghetti Western and Swing-Jazz into their own surreal vision.

In concert, Waiting for Guinness‚€™ spontaneous and anarchic performances are truly engaging. The theatrical element is as strong as ever, harking back to their busking origins. A fan once said ‚€œWFG make old music sound new somehow,‚€ and they may have a point. The band are not traditionalists trying to re-create the past, but write contemporary and original music influenced by the styles they love.†

Rainee Lyleson embodies Joni Mitchell in her one-woman show about the great singer-songwriter. Joined by some of Sydney's best young musicians in what people are calling "an awe-inspiring tribute to Joni", Rainee weaves music

Waldo Fabian is a bassist, composer, singer and producer who has worked with many outstanding pop, Latin and jazz bands and musicians - including The Party Boys, Floyd Vincent, Disco Montego, Delta Goodrem, Swoop, Anthony Copping and Robin Loau as well as having three solo albums to his credit (Dejame Tocarte, a South American release through Sony, Loco released through Festival/Mushroom records and his latest release Groovy Cumbia is just released).†

A founding member of renowned Sydney septet, The catholics, Waldo has many musical accomplishments, while also being a well respected educator who currently lectures at both Macquarie University and the University of New South Wales.

Review of the Waldo Fabian Quintet from the Kinetic Jazz Festival 2013:

"Watching Waldo Fabian work a bass is complete magic. The rich sound, pulsing with Latino sex appeal pulsed dark, thumping and vibrant. If aesthetic was an interesting combination in the previous set, the eroticism of the Latin Jazz vibrating around the walls of the church was a Freudian wet dream. Fabian was soon joined by the other band members and the wild writhing lashings of sound washed over, around and through us. The compulsion to dance was intense, and though Fabian invited the audience to on several occasions, the grim head shaking of all those statues of Jesus won the day, and we remained pulsing in our seats.†

It was a great effect and a perfect way to writhe and sweat to the salsa beat. All the musicians were wonderful, Goyer‚€™s thrashed harmonium licking at the ears while the horns of McIver and Bowd pounded away at the lower chakras. Only the rhythmic power of Rob Cornish‚€™s drums grasped firmly at the feet and kept the experience earth-bound and real. A stunning set".†Lisa Thatcher

Darkstar
1st May 2014
1015 Folsom, 1015 Folsom St.,
Warp records sensational band, DARKSTAR, make way to SF for a special live performance. Since their latest release, ?News From Nowhere,? they've been heralded as an instant classic across the board! "Every place warrants a story. No matter where it is, how quiet, remote or disconnected. There are moments in people?s everyday lives, no matter how subtle, that can be documented and talked about in great detail. The instances spiral and ascend and take on their own course, altering the perception of how even the slightest change in a day can be felt deeply." ? Darkstar Darkstar first coalesced in the underground, electronic thrum of London?s nascent grime and dubstep sphere in the middle 2000?s, growing from attending the now-fabled early FWD club nights to releasing a pair of game-changing 12? singles on Kode 9?s fledgling Hyperdub label. These were marked departures at the time, fusing unique sonic futurism with an avant-garde pop sensibility that immediately set the duo of Aiden Whalley and James Young apart from the glut of producers emerging at the time. What followed was a fitful and productive period culminating in a discarded album?s worth of tracks, the crucial introduction of vocalist James Buttery to the fold and, finally - the release of their debut full-length North, to wide acclaim.
