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...

Duke Dumont at Mezzanine, Thu, Apr 17 9:00p
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.

5th May 2014
Foundry616 Jazz Club, 616 Harris Street Sydney NSW 2007
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

You may have heard Penny€™s hit single, €œLap It Up€ on JJJ way back in 1994. Penny was one-half of the songwriting core of Club Hoy and went on to forge a career of her own after Club Hoy€™s untimely demise. She toured extensively as a headliner and as a support to such luminaries as Margaret Urlich, Things of Stone and Wood, Kate Ceberano, Sophie B Hawkins and Wendy Matthews. In 1994, her debut single, €œLap It Up€ made it into the JJJ Hottest 100 at a respectable no. 58. Most recently you may have seen her on stage with her sister, comedian Kitty Flanagan. But now after 10 years away from music proper, Penny has been easing back into live shows around the city.

Philly 360° Playlist: Khari Mateen Releases "Full Moon" Recorded Live At Chris' Jazz Cafe
21st June 2014

This week?s playlist comes from a familiar face in the Philly music scene?songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Khari Mateen. Most recently, Mateen released a live performance video of his song ?Full Moon,? recorded during a performance at popular Center City music spotChris? Jazz Caf.

Not only is the track a great listen but catching one of Khari's one-man shows is definitely a sight to see. Khari not only sings and incorporates innovative electronics into his live set, the versatile performer even breaks into a cello solo mid-song.

The original ?Full Moon? track features Philly based emcee Sugar Tongue Slim?more simply known as STS. The smooth track easily gets your head nodding and STS? southern drawl and bounce is the perfect addition. It?s sultry without dragging and makes you want to listen back a couple times to hear all the nuances of the production and lyrics.

As a producer Mateen has worked alongside of popular Philly artists includingThe Roots,and has even collaborated with Jill Scott, Tye Tribbett, James Poyser and more. Getting an early start lending his talent to former groupNouveau Richealongside Philly-based singer/songwriterNikki Jean andThe Roots' rap prodigyDice Raw,Mateen now captivates audiences all on his own. He has performed his latest solo music on the road with acts like fellow Philly musician and producer, RJD2 and Cody Simpson.

Mateen epitomizes a generation that does it all?and does it well. From being a classically trained cellist to a mastermind producer and vocalists, Khari is well respected on the Philly music scene as an artists who approaches his crafts with precision and excellence.

There is definitely something soulful and classic, yet still fresh, pop and new in each and every one of his tracks. Take a listen to ?Full Moon? below and make certain to check out his latest body of workQualia: Fall.

Check out Khari Mateen performing "Full Moon" live at Chris' Jazz Cafe in Center City.

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.

Featured Party of the Week:

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.

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!

MAMAPALOOZA €“ €˜STOLEN MOMENTS€™ - Celebrating Mothers in the Arts@ Django Bar Thursday 8th May 2014

Mamapalooza is back! This exciting festival celebrates mothers in the visual and performing arts and for its 5th annual show we have a fabulous lineup of mum musicians.

Rebecca Moore - a highly accomplished, award winning singer songwriter who was recently described by the Queanbeyan Times as €œthe artistic love child of folk singer Joni Mitchell and stadium rocker Robert Plant.€ Her career highlights include: Finalist of 3 categories - Australian Independent Music Awards 2013. Nominated World/Folk Award Top 5 Musicoz Awards 2012 and much more. She has appeared at numerous festivals including: Peat's Ridge and the Illawarra Folk Festival NSW. She has toured the UK three times performing shows in London, Dublin, Edinburgh, and the Isle of Skye (Scotland). Her album will be available for sale, which spans a decade of touring and songwriting.

Zelda Smyth is often compared to Patti Smith or a female Bob Dylan, even Janis Joplin or Marienne Faithful because of her low weathered and sultry voice. Her songs are a mix of Blues, Soul and Country. A self-taught guitarist and mother of two grown up daughters, she recently toured New York and London. Her introduction to Mamapalooza was at the Motherhood Museum in New York City where she played to a televised audience. Zelda regularly plays with John Maddox in a duo, the Z'J's at the Coopers Hotel.

Mindy Sotiri - a prolific song-writer who will be releasing her new album this year.€œWhen I first heard the sublime Mindy Sotiri sing about baby monitor static at an inner-city pub, I burst into tears and smudged all my eyeliner. € new maternal existence making an appearance at an actual live music gig. NO-ONE sings about this stuff. And they SHOULD. Mindy is not just an outrageously talented musician - she's bringing women's intense private worlds into the public.€ - Emma Tom

Freya & Bek

Freya & Bek performed @ the last Mamapalooza, to great acclaim. Freya Lindblomis a music therapist and singer/songwriter who performed for many years with much loved group, Elf, who were renowned for their acappella songs & etherial, weaving harmonies. Freya's original songs explore relationships, love & social conscience. Bek Wermut is a registered Music Therapist, multi-instrumentalist, percussionist, drum circle facilitator, & new mum.

Max & Dale Duo

Max Whelan and Dale Newman used to play in bands around Sydney and sleep in on the weekends but now they both have beautiful sons and a love of early morning lego (really!). Occasionally, they say, a friend asks them to dust off their guitars to sing at a birthday party or a wedding and they drink copious amounts of tea at Dale's house by the sea and between chats try and remember the chords to a few songs! You€™ll enjoy their original acoustic pop songs!

Plus, Ana Key, Ruby Star and Louise Charman James whose original songs incorporate humour, pathos & irony will have you in stitches. So steal a moment and come out to a fabulous night of entertainment!

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.

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.
