Seismic Dance Event unveils daily lineup, topped by Cirez D and TESTPILOTSeismic Dance Event I O

For the second year, Seismic Dance Event makes its return to Austin, Texas to bless attendees with two days of world-class performances. In September 2018, the inaugural event brought a stellar lineup to the Travis County Exposition Center, including Lane 8, Drezo, Golf Clap, Green Velvet, Sacha Robotti, and more.

In 2019, festival organizers look to build on last year’s success by bringing in headliners Cirez D and TESTPILOT, along with a piping hot array of other artists like Bicep, Idris Elba, Nic Fanciulli, Gorgon City, Nora En Pure, and more.

Now, the festival has revealed its daily lineups, featuring deadmau5’s TESTPILOT alias topping day one and Eric Prydz’s Cirez D moniker at the top of day two at The Statesman. Saturday, Nov. 16 will also feature acts like Chris Lake, i_o, and Rinzen, and Sunday, Nov. 17 will bring performances from Lee Burridge, Gorgon City, Dom Dolla and many more. Along from the dynamic lineup, the festival will also feature live painting and art installations, live performers, totem, and costume contests.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the glowing feedback from our debut year and now with this year’s lineup,” said RealMusic Events & Seismic co-founders Kelly Gray & Andrew Parsons. “Many US festivals tend to have very similar lineups so we really wanted to switch it up and cater to the more seasoned, underground connoisseur – and yes, believe it, in Texas.”

Bicep transfixes in new ‘Rain’ EP and video

This post was originally published on this site

Bicep’s just unveiled a new EP, Rain, and video by director Luke Wyatt, AKA Torn Hawk.

A producer, DJ, and NTS host, Wyatt’s video juxtaposes clips of old film footage, overlaid VHS glitches, and computer-generated images with snakes and mysterious mazes. Somatic in its sound encapsulation of Bicep’s entrancing sound, Wyatt appropriately fuses Bicep’s widespread sourcing of seemingly disparate musical materials in an enthralling maze of devouring proportions.

Released on Ninja Tune, “Rain’s” followed by the disparate channeling of gamut club music influences on “Helix.” Much like the winding form of a double helix DNA structure, “Helix” twists and turns through the beloved 90s house, garage, ambient, and breakbeat sounds that catapulted the dancefloor-minded duo to stardom in the first place, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Watch: Bicep – “Rain”

International flexxx: Bicep have a new video, as well as an EP, as well as a new-ish Four Tet remix, out right now (and all this off the back of last year’s self-titled album!). This here “Rain” video comes from one Luke Wyatt, otherwise professionally known as Torn Hawk, and in a way, his A/V ethos aligns rather nicely with Bicep’s; vaguely nostalgic, strangely euphoric, and pretty much perfect for mashed heads at any time of day/night. The early testimonials are in:

Praise indeed. Pick your Rain EP poison wisely, and be sure to catch Bicep at next year’s Warehouse Project!

Four Tet reworks Bicep’s ‘Opal’ into a contemplative club gem

Bicep - Opal (Four Tet Remix)

Four Tet has remixed Bicep’s “Opal,” a crown jewel lifted from the Belfast duo’s self-titled debut album, which coalesces the halcyon days of club culture with a unique marriage of Italo house and glitzy electro.

Celebrated for his own work as a producer, Four Tet’s remixes have always brought an identifiable, idiosyncratic approach to his source material — a capitalization on the creative avenues for tantalizing textures and dulcet deliverances alike.

Accordingly, Four Tet, born Kieran Hebden, brings his distinctive M.O. to Bicep’s club-heavy work. Employing the textural aura that drove his latest swirling body of work, New Energyand energy akin to Bicep’s own “Glue,” Four Tet marries subtle rhythmic tweaks and overlays of texture on “Opal.” By opening the track up to a more tender, contemplative feel, he extends its running time by almost twice as long, playing on each of its key components with added grace, giving them space to breathe and ruminate on the dance floor.

Hammer releases three-track EP on Feel My Bicep Records

This post was originally published on this site

Longtime friend of the electro-slinging, progressive, and ’90s-style house purveyors Bicep has released his first solo outing for the imprint. C-Space is the title of Hammer‘s new three-track EP, and it’s a glistening deliverance of galactic-tinged techno. The EP also doubles as the first release of 2018 for the Feel My Bicep label. Hammer’s new EP is a cavernous apex of sweeping chords, ’80s-style synth lines, and sharp analog drums — which is a move that renders his place in the Feel My Bicep catalog all the more deserved.

C-Space is the first Feel My Bicep release since Bicep’s self-titled debut album, which came out last year. While the new EP is now streaming, its 12″ release is not slated until March 3. Pre-order it here.

Best Albums You Probably Missed This Year

Yup, 2017 was the year of the underground….even though it kinda always is. While Rolling Stone Magazine decided to go full Resident Advisor and release a list of obscure, avant-garde, and borderline unlistenable albums as their annual top electronic albums, we have kept note of some of the best records that few seemed to notice.
