Re: “10 Years of Hyperdub with Kode 9, DJ Spinn, Taso and Scratcha DVA

Joe, this won't be a Badman Sound feature, at least this time, but that's certainly in my mind for the future. Thanks for reading, of course.

Re: “10 Years of Hyperdub with Kode 9, DJ Spinn, Taso and Scratcha DVA

I did indeed go! I hope what you're hinting at is a Badman Sound feature... I've been waiting for that article for a long time. Sean and Steph (and Uzoma, among others) have put Raleigh on the map for the whole 'bass' scene. They are part of bringing the sound system movement to the Triangle... A movement that forces listeners to think about the relationship between music and its intended venue. An experience that can only be replicated in clubs, with other people, and certain types of music.

Re: “10 Years of Hyperdub with Kode 9, DJ Spinn, Taso and Scratcha DVA

Joe, thanks for the comments. I'll let Mr. Soderberg respond to your longer comments, but just so you know, I'll be writing about the show for a piece next week and mentioning the custom sound system that indeed came in. Sounded great. Did you go?

Re: “10 Years of Hyperdub with Kode 9, DJ Spinn, Taso and Scratcha DVA

"The 'dub' part of the subgenre made some sense, referring to the weed-heavy percussion that offered a dungeon's echo of dub reggae, paired with patient, artful two-step beats."

Common misconception. If you listen to any of these DJs, their dub/reggae influence is minimal. The dub in hyperdub refers more to dubplates than it does to the... "weed-heavy percussion" of reggae (could that description be any lazier? What the fuck does a "weed-heavy" snare sound like?). "Dub" is a reference to DJ culture -- cutting dubs, playing obscure B sides, etc.

What should the reader expect for this show? Dubstep and "very-out-there electronic" music? Sure, you can read the Wiki page and listen to 9 Samurai, but if you looked any further than that, you'd know that Kode9 and Hyperdub are so far removed from the dubstep scene at this point that this preview is anachronistic and does nothing to explain what these guys are currently playing.

People worked hard to bring this show to Raleigh... And no mention of the custom speaker rig brought out for the event... what a fuckin' preview

Re: “Urban Art Show

Not your ordinary gallery show. The collection, never before seen by the public, will be on display in a century old subterranean room for one night only, and combines a variety of techniques, mediums, custom built installations, all designed to stimulate your senses and set your mind racing. Come for the experience, stay for the party. Show 8-11, Party till 1

TESCON POL / ZULA / ADULT SCIENCE

Tescon Pol
The Durham/Raleigh duo crafts texturally dense soundscapes comprised of interwoven digital & analog tones, fragmented rhythms, and the sounds produced by selected objects. Spatially evocative, these futuristic cocktails are equally likely to lean in the direction of abstraction or cohesive songlike choreography (occasionally complete with vocal accompaniment). Drawing inspiration from a diverse legacy of musical influences as well as visual and literary touchstones such as Modernist & contemporary architecture, Absurdism, Cyberpunk fantasy, Art Nouveau, Existentialist fiction, and Futurist philosophy.

Zula
On Zula's debut album, This Hopeful, the New York-based four-piece showcase a refreshing, forward-thinking approach to psychedelic pop music. The songs weave melody through interlocking, hypnotic rhythms — suspended spaces designed to disrupt the usual flow of time. Although Zula formed in late 2010, the musical kinship of cousins Henry and Nate Terepka (both on vocals, guitar and synths) first developed through family jam sessions during the holidays. Taking inspiration from 90's UK indie-dance, krautrock and funk, the band has built a reputation for their energetic live show and for constantly pushing their heavily rhythmic sound. They have been known to deliver entire sets of never-before-played material. This restless creativity is apparent on the album, which sounds raw and spontaneous, yet meticulously detailed. It is a record with effortless flow and pulse, but enticing depth. For zoning in or out.

Adult Science
"Slow-burn electronic music that explores several genres of pop and dance punk without losing a sense of its own identity. In doing so, they develop a sound that's fresh and begs you to take another listen." - Igor Podolsky
