Moritz Friedrich has been remixing and releasing genre-unspecific singles for the past ten years, mixing off-kilter elements of electro-funk, house and bass and stringing them together with unique, melodic sensibilities and obscure vocals. Mosaik, his latest full length album (released on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown) has received considerable praise, giving his unique style and execution much-deserved attention. Siriusmo rarely plays live shows, and this will be his San Francisco debut. The Berlin-dweller has remixed for Boys Noize, Zombie Nation, Simian Mobile Disco, Modeselektor and Digitalism.
Javelin, the eclectic, Brooklyn-based hip hop/electronic duo, released No Mas, on David Byrne’s Luka Bop label last year. Their mix of samples, original work and crazy lyrics has drawn attention to the cousin team of George Langford and Tom Van Duskirk. Self-described as “Party music. But… also mellow,” Javelin is known for consistently delivering high energy performances at live shows.
Denver’s Pictureplane, the project of art school student Travis Egedy, brings a punk mentality to dance music, using lo-fi undertones and various genre references to keep listeners intrigued. His well-received full-length debut, Dark Rift, released on Lovepump Records in 2009 (Health and Washed Out are labelmates). Thee Physical, released earlier this year and co-produced by Health’s Jupiter Keyes, mixes techno, R&B, house and dark rock into unique and danceable tracks.
Support from Krystal Klear, Vin Sol and Charles McCloud.
