JESUS BREAK DANCING CHRIST!!! Why does the best week of techno happen the first week I'm gone from la grande pomme? Don't see that much quality coming through that rapidly in succession too often. Maybe it's a good thing, cuz if I was there, I'd be wanting to rock and roll all night and party ev-er-y day.
That's my howl of protest. Fucking Monolake AND Vladislav Delay on the same night @ Love 5/29. My favourite club with the best system in New York hosting my all-time hands-down favourite producer, who I've never had the opportunity to see in personn (V. Delay). Monolake ain't too shabby either, that night he did with Kit Clayton in T.O. a while back was phenomenal. Argh. Note you have to have advanced tix for this, more info here: http://music_is_love.intellicontact.com/music_is_love/monolake_vladislav_delay_live_in_love_5_29.html
I haven't heard T-1000 in a while... I will be at this one! What else is happening this week ? Seeing as I am in the city... I think I will check some things out. I heard Uncut (toronto band) is playing sometime soon too, and that the Feild and another Ghostly international label artists are playing at Studio B in Brooklyn on Wednesday... but there is also LOSER at Stay on WEdnesday nights (last week they had TOdd Sines and they have Derrick Plaslaiko, and John Selway too.....
this has a techno in new york connection... sooo sad
Janie Peralta, head of the record US techno record labels Matame and Matando, is reported to have been brutally murdered by her boyfriend during a altercation that took place in their apartment on July 5th. She was only 29 years old; adding to the tragedy, her young daughter will now grow up without a mother. Her killer was also injured during the incident and is in critical condition suffering from multiple lacerations. Matame had 6 releases, the most recent one titled - Prophets in the Midst that was produced by her attacker, Jav. The release featured a track eerily named Fear of Life Not Death.
