Yppah (feat. Anomie Belle)
10pm – 4am
$10 adv // $12 door
Yppah comes with his full band and guest vocalist/collaborator Anomie Belle for his first performance on the East Coast – ever. Yppah has long represented the crossing point of trip hop, post rock, and electronic music across previous releases You Are Beautiful At All Times and They Know What Ghost Know. His third album, Eighty-One, released this year on Ninja Tune, found Yppah working in similar territory – rolling, emotive soundscapes perfect for a sunset drive – with the added bonus of a vocalist. The result is nothing short of sublime.
Archie Pelago is a live/production outfit emphasizing the fusion of instrumental textures and experimental beat landscapes. The Brooklyn-based trio is comprised of Cosmo D (cello/ableton wizard), Kroba (sax/ableton) and Hirshi (dj/trumpet). Their live performance is a balance of original compositions and live remixes of their favorite dance jams driven by an unmistakable chamber approach to the creative rabbit hole music technology allows.
Embassy Recording’s label boss and Atlanta bass music mainstay Distal has climbed to brilliant new heights in 2012, releasing his debut LP with Bristol’s eminent Tectonic label after a slew of singles and performances that brought him all around the world.
