Combining the precision of electronic music with the spontaneity of live drumming can make for some outstanding musical moments if done well; so on June 14th we’re in for a real treat as two of the most exciting dudes out there who combine their own electronic productions with live drumming play a double headliner in the main room at Electrowerkz! An unmissable night for lovers of the finest beat music.
We’re very excited to welcome back to the Soundcrash stage Michigan resident and all-round genius Shigeto. Beat-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractured but melodically sumptuous, Shigeto’s music is a bridge between the past and present, bringing the artist face to face with a creative legacy that spans decades. Just as fellow Ghostly label-mates Gold Panda, Dabrye or Com Truise, Shigeto’s musical universe defies and confounds genre definitions. Tonight he will be performing his infamous live set with drums. You don’t want to miss this!
London based electronic stalwart Kel McKeown – aka Kelpe – celebrates ten years of sonic boundary pushing with new LP ‘Fourth: The Golden Eagle’, out June 3rd on his brand new label DRUT, with the ‘Answered’ EP/MAXI single out April 15th. Setting to work with a selection of analogue synths – Moog, Korg Polysix, Korg MS10 and Doepfer Dark Energy – the Ableton aficionado and purveyor of warped, cut ‘n’ spliced cliq-hop beats has delivered a handcrafted, 10-track masterpiece on an album which draws upon the strengths of his previous three. It’s softer, warmer and more graceful than 2009’s ‘Cambio Wechsel’, with a strong melodic element, and one which will secure his prized position in the canon of post-IDM greats.
