It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new year for Harmonic. Los Angeles’s recent warm winter weather has offered up the likings of an off-season BASK party at The Standard rooftop in Downtown LA. Set to go off at a time while many may be returning battered from Playa del Carmen, Harmonic gives a valid reason to dance off the BPM Blues with two seriously talented up-and-coming musicians in the electronic music scene.
San Francisco producer DEAD SEAL brings a glimpse of real musicality to the underground tech house and house scene, something rarely experienced on the dance floor. Although versed in all the instruments found in his recordings, and owning a stage presence reminiscent of Iggy Pop, it’s his sense of bravado and daring that blurs the line between traditional live performance and the microprocessor obsessed futurism of the house scene. Recent releases and remixes on Crosstown Rebels, My Favorite Robot, and Items & Things have gotten him charted by Maceo Plex, Troy Pierce, Davide Squillace, and Alex Niggeman, as well as acclaimed reviews from DJ Mag, Ibiza-Voice, Data Transmission, and Gary Springs Hunting Club. Look forward to 2.5 hours of the future.
The next post-futuristic musician on the bill is LA’s own NIKKO GIBLER, one of the most “overall” musically gifted people in the industry. His proficiency in over 10 instruments, his ability to deliver perfectly-pitched vocals effortlessly, his profound connection with music and what we like to call “Constant Flawless Improvisation” on his main instrument, the piano, has quickly placed him as a highly sought-after studio asset within the who’s who of today’s most prolific and forward thinking artists, producers and djs. Nikko’ original music is extremely varied and timeless with extreme attention to detail. Particularly, focusing on the often-forgotten lyrics and harmonic/melodic progressions of our yesteryears; bringing back a certain classic charm to the scene. What he likes to call “Turning tracks into songs” has landed him multiple releases on Culprit, Leftroom, and Petfood, and a boatload more to be released in 2012.
Opening up this off-season offering will be Harmonic’s own DELINQUENT FREQUENCY, and Making Shapes founder, JENILUV.
The forecast is set for 70 degrees and mind-blowing, so come out early to enjoy the weather and sound, and receive free admission before 2pm ($10 after with RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org). 2012 will prove to me an incredible year for all, so treat yourself to some music from the future, and come celebrate under the sun during the “off season” with Harmonic!
Thank you. Have a nice day. Asshole. (They forgot THAT particular) lol
