Write A Music Review: Rock/Britpop Review: Elbow-The Take Off and Landing of Everything




Music Reviews & News Release Date: March 11, 2014 Label: Concord Website Elbow is another case of a band that is extremely well known in the UK, but is relatively unknown in the US. The band has released six studio albums dating back to 2001, all of which have been in the top 15 on British album charts. In 2008 they won the Mercury Prize for The Se...

David Bridie has hit the road again and is coming to Camelot Lounge with performances that mix up the old and new €“ songs from his 2013 release WAKE as well as some gems from his extensive back catalogue in film and music.

To mark the tour Bridie has released a new music video for single Shortest Day of The Year. The Shortest Day of The Year was shot in LA by director Catriona McKenzie of Satellite Boy (starring David Gulpilil, and for which David did the music score). The LA based editor Sara Mineo of Game of Thrones fame leant her magic touch in the editing suite, and the clip stars Haskell Vaughn Anderson III, side kick to Jean-Claude Van Damme in his 1989 film Kickboxer. With a veritable who€™s who of the film world getting involved in the music videos for WAKE it seems Julianne Moore will not be the only new high profile fan to jump on the Bridie bandwagon.

This is the third clip in a series of filmic music video€™s produced for WAKE, which included the award winning video for Delegate (winner of the Nevada International Film Festival award for best music video and nominated for an Australian Screen Editors Guild Award) which saw underbelly actor Ian McKenzie trigger the self-emollition of a business man turned dreamer. The Clip for Shortest Day of The Year ponders the last day of a life, the day you die, the sweet in the bitter, memories from the gamut of a life€™s experience.

Mighty Real Presents "the Godfather - Part 1" a Tribute to Frankie Knuckles
10th May 2014
Mighty, 119 Utah St., San Francisco
Saturday, May 10TH, 2014 Mighty Real Presents "The Godfather - Part 1" A tribute to Frankie Knuckles (Defmix) HECTOR Romero (Def Mix / NYC) w/ Mighty Real Resident David Harness (Harlum Muziq) As many of you probably know by now, Frankie Knuckles passed from us on Monday, March 31st, 2014. While he was booked on Saturday, May 10th to play Mighty Real, we have decided to pay homage to this musical giant by dedicating this night to his memory. We'll have special visuals, a shrine where people can write and dedicate their thoughts and prayers, and Hector Romero (Def Mix/NYC) with David Harness will be laying down the tunes "Knuckles style" all night long. A portion of the proceeds will be going to a diabetes charity TBD. The man many call the godfather of house, Frankie Knuckles began DJing in New York in the early '70s while still a teenager, years before the disco boom which proved to be the first flowering of modern dance music. Ten years later he was in Chicago, putting together megamixes of old disco hits with new drum-machine percussion for an appreciative audience at crucial clubs like the Music Box and the Warehouse. Another decade on from those first formative steps for house music, Knuckles was back in his New York home, working as a producer and remixer for the biggest pop stars in the business. His career spans more time than any dance producer and without him, the landscape would be immeasurably different.

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.

Verboten's Zeitgeist: Felix da Housecat, Metro Area DJ set, Kate Simko, Clarian


New York€™s new underground party playground, Verboten, has been bringing amazing, talented artists to their much deserved new club space and permanent home in Williamsburg since it opened last month. The April lineup is in full swing; this weekend we are ecstatic to see electro house/disco don, Felix da Housecat make his debut at Verboten€™s new digs.Last year, after a four-year hiatus, he released a new studio album, concocted a top-notch BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, and has made his highly-anticipated return to the club scene.


He's joined by Metro Area, who's last DJ set for Verboten's StageONE was jam-packed with highquality boogie and cutting edge house and techno tunes. The duowas born out of mutual love of the classic, soulful R&B, disco, and minimalistic deep house.Also performing tonight areKate Simko, who is helping to bridge the gap amongst thedeep-house/techno divide, bringing hermelodic, Chicago-infused take on house and techno, andFootprintz'sClarian, who went solo last year and will be wrapping up the night with his emotive,poignant sounds for a low-key underground ambiance. Oh, and a man with serious DJ talent, you might know him asPaul Raffaelewho throws killer parties that you don't want to miss (The Dog and Pony Show) will be playing a set for us as well.


Verboten continues to elevate Brooklyn€™s underground art and music scene with a variety of culture programming including the launch of "Art is Verboten" by Mike Dreeland, Wasabassco at Verboten: Danger!, Music Unites: Youth Music Education, and PopGun presents Adult.


The first art show will be kicking off tonight in the Cabaret Bar; €œArt is Verboten€ by NY pop artist Mike Dreeland. The art show is from 8:00PM-11:00PM, some come early... there's a sponsored bar by Belvedere Vodka, Jameson, and Veuve Cliquot.


Defined as a 21st century artist by the nature of his work, Dreeland introduces a pop art style that mixes basic acrylics and techniques from old masters with hi-tech tools of the present and future. Modern technology, with the use of graphic design programs, has allowed Dreeland to spotlight a unique step and repeat style by using multiple layers and common objects. Thick paint and bold colors characterizes Dreeland€™s work. Dreeland collaborates with the music and lifestyle team at Verboten on the launch of their eponymous nightlife venue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to display custom Dreeland pieces within the venue.


Verboten has some pretty fantastic shows coming up, including Carl Craig (Somewhere in BKN), Kenny Larkin and Davide Squillace,a celebration of 20 years of Josh Wink€™s Ovum label, and much more. Stay tuned for more visual art and live music cultural highlights at Verboten to be announced soon!

Charlie Parker - 'Bird', innovated a whole new approach to the way jazz music was played, not only on the Saxophone, but all jazz instruments. His approach to improvisation provided 'freedom' from the pop culture of swing music as Bird represented musicians for the first time as intellectual artists rather than entertainers.

This is an all star Bebop Quintet line up playing all your favourite tunes that are still cherished today - including 'Billies Bounce,' 'Ornithology,' 'Now's The Time' and more!

Paul Oakenfold
30th May 2014
Ruby Skye, 420 Mason St., San Francisco
When it comes to a career the magnitude of Paul Oakenfold it?s hard to encompass one of the true legends of electronic music into just words. For over 3 decades he has elevated and shaped an entire genre and remains one of the leading forces in the global music scene today. His most recent works have taken him from the DJ booth of the worlds hottest nightspots and festivals to the studio producing soundtracks for Hollywood blockbuster movies. His diversity in artistry and ability has earned him accolades from critics and fans alike. Garnering him not 1 but 2 Grammy Nominations for his works. But lets take a step back. The son of a musician, Paul came up as a young DJ in the late '70s spinning Funk in Covent Garden. Not what some might have expected from one of Trances preeminent masters. But he knew then music would be his life. In the '80s 2 life-changing trips took place. The first in 1984 where he spent several months living in New York City working as A&R man for the famed Champion Records signing DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, as well as Salt-n-Pepa. He also became promoter and British agent for the Beastie Boys and Run-D.M.C. The second trip and more contemporary influence was in 1987 which brought Paul to the White Isle of Ibiza. Here he discovered the Balearic sound that flowed through the Ibiza air at clubs such as Amnesia. Inspired, he took the music and experiences back to the UK and became its ambassador. Paul returned often holding residencies at Amnesia and Pacha in Ibiza. Around the same time Ministry Of Sound in London was opening and tauted Paul as their first resident. However it was his famed residency at UK super-club Cream in Liverpool that brought Paul global respect as a master of his art. It was some say the catalyst to what has made him a touring legend. This residency was celebrated through the Grammy nominated 2004 compilation ?Creamfields? (Paul went on to receive a second Grammy nomination in 2007 with his artist album, ?A Lively Mind? and then again in 2009 for his production work with Madonna). Oakenfold?s stature as a DJ and entertainer has taken him beyond the normal club and festival circuit, playing landmark gigs that have changed the face of electronic music. Highlights include three worldwide tours warming up for Madonna and U2 (with both artists insisting on a DJ set from Paul instead of a support band); performing physically on the Great Wall of China and two sold out dates playing to 30,000 people at the Hollywood Bowl in California. A year after that first visit to Ibiza, Perfecto was born. Founded in 1988, Oakenfold?s groundbreaking Perfecto record label played an integral role in the birth of trance music, with Paul at the helm producing massive international hits such as ?Not Over Yet?, ?Bullet In The Gun? and ?Southern Sun?. With countless high profile releases and remixes in its path, Perfecto Records is still the benchmark to which so many labels measure themselves. 20+ years later, Perfecto remains as cutting edge and popular as ever, even resurrecting its Perfecto Fluoro sublabel in 2011. Probably Perfecto?s most notable release was the recent double album ?Perfecto Las Vegas? which held the #1 spot on the US iTunes dance chart for several weeks. This release solidified Paul?s stronghold as an International DJ power player achieving the highest selling DJ compilation ever released in US history ? with over half a million sales. Paul has produced for megastars such as U2, Madonna (including her latest release ?Celebration?) and The Happy Mondays. As well as three acclaimed artist albums under his own name. He has remixed Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones and Justin Timberlake and released over 20 DJ mix compilations. In recent years Paul has also been responsible for creating some of the most breathtaking film scores and cues for a long list of Hollywood blockbusters ? including The Bourne Identity, Matrix Reloaded, Shrek 2, Swordfish and Collateral. But his most anticipated release is yet to come. Paul Oakenfold?s newest artist album ?Pop Killer? is scheduled for imminent release featuring The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Gnarls Barkley, OneRepublic and B.O.B. Astonishingly, despite all his success in the worlds of chart music and film, Oakenfold has found time to keep in touch with his roots as a club DJ. Over the past 3 years he has held a weekly residency at the legendary Rain nightclub in The Palms, Las Vegas. Planet Perfecto is a fully produced show with 75 circus performers, cutting edge visuals and special effects - giving the 3,000-strong crowd a truly unique experience. Whether you are listening to a CD, watching a commercial, going to a club or playing a video game; Paul?s omnimedia presence is felt everywhere. Paul Oakenfold is the sovereign of DJ culture and is its most recognizable icon. Paul Oakenfold?s: Perfecto On Tour radio show airs weekly on Sirius XM Satellite Radio?s - Electric Area Channels Saturdays at 8pm EST and rebroadcasts Wednesdays at 12 noon EST.

€œHe€™s a soulful survivor, with a voice as cool as a long G&T and a repertoire that balances jazz, rock and soul." Beat Magazine (USA)

Continuing his successful monthly residency at Foundry616, Vince Jones, Australia€™s leading jazz vocalist/composer, returns to the club with a sensational repertoire and band.

As a contemporary jazz singer, Jones uses his voice as an expressive instrument and the lyric as a vehicle for story and comment €“ and he sings like there€™s nothing to prove. It€™s a humble, humanistic and refreshing approach that gives us, the audience, the chance to be really moved.

Scottish born, Jones€™ musical path continues to be influenced by his Celtic heritage, as much as his beginnings as a bebop trumpet player. From his first album released in 1981, the quiet, strong statement of Watch What Happens, Vince has steadily showcased his vocal and songwriting talent through another 14 acclaimed albums - a loyal audience developing with each release and tour.

The combination of his unmistakable voice, thought provoking lyrics and subtle trumpet playing makes for an enticing and often moving performance.

Vince Jones€™ latest offering is Modern Folk, a compilation of songs recorded live around Australia, released through Vitamin Records. He records and tours with a band comprising musicians who are highly regarded in their own right, including Matt McMahon on piano, Simon Barker on drums and Ben Waples on bass.

a wide range of musicians including Rick Margitza, Herb Geller, Sunny Murray, Marcel Azzola, Glenn Ferris, Annie Whitehead, Barry Altschul, Carla Bruni, and Michel Jonasz. Aside from appearing on numerous CDs as both leader and sideman, he has also written and produced music for theatre, television and film in Europe, North America and Australia.

Cody€™s music reveals not only his deep love of the jazz and classical traditions, but also the influence of contemporary French and African musicians he has encountered in Paris, and its warmth, sense of space and humour touch a wide and diverse public around the world while receiving rave reviews from the critics.

We are pleased to have him back here and urge you to come and check out his music.

The pianist€™s compositions reflect the diversity of his tone: a touch both firm and singing, a deliberately rapid phrasing, but that never loses sight of the melody, a taste for full fleshed harmonies sometimes close to gospel € it unfolds tenderly and majestically, seduces you to the charm of an inspired interpretation of which the atmosphere will haunt you a long time. Magical".Piano Magazine , France

Some of the best musicians of the moment €a feast of melody€an inspiration never at fault€a facility for improvisation that leaves you stunned € an absolute mastery€everyone expresses himself marvellously on the compositions of Cody who is an excellent pianist€another example of a jazz that knows the evolution towards the avant garde but stays anchored on lasting values, and privileges feeling, beauty and melody.JazzHot, France

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...

Duke Dumont at Mezzanine, Thu, Apr 17 9:00p
2014-04-17
Mezzanine, 444 Jessie St.,
with Sleazemore, Richie Panic, MPHD Before 2012 Duke Dumont was known as a ?producer?s producer?. He was the name on a 12? record the DJ knew to reach for when he wanted to please the crowd, without them knowing who had constructed the mesmerising sonic confection they were dancing too. In 2012, two EPs on Tiga?s Turbo Recordings (with whom Duke has had a long standing relationship) changed all that. ?For Club Play Vol. 1 & 2? offered up sweet ecstatic deep house & UK bass cuts that have united people across the spectrum of music, from early club adopters like Annie Mac, Erol Alkan, Diplo, Martyn and Jackmaster to Fearne Cotton on daytime Radio 1, Trevor Nelson on 1xtra and even podcasts by Tiesto and Avicci. On some nights in Duke?s beloved Fabric London, you would hear the anthemic ?The Giver? being played in all three rooms at the same time. Duke?s early career was mentored by Switch (last sighted producing for Beyonc) and he made his name as the ?go-to? man to remake a pop song for the dance floor (Lily Allen and Bat For Lashes were notable clients). In 2011, he moved out of London to the countryside (Hertfordshire, where his studio overlooks a forest) to focus on his original material. Co-written by teenage wonder-kid MNEK (who recently sung on Rudimental?s ?Spoons? with Syron) the Duke released ?Need U (100%)? on his newly minted Blas Boys Club label. ?Need U (100%)? features 17 year-old starlet AME on singing duties. With a chunky low-end, funky stabs and silky vocals this is like an early 90s house classic couched in 2013 techno techniques. In 1988 Inner City would have been jealous of this one.
