Off The Books (and On The Roof): Mount Kimbie, Shlohmo, Strangeloop, Low Limit & more @ Downtown Independent 9/26

PREPARE YOURSELVES for a mind-twisting night of psychedelic visuals, bass-cranking beats and illicit bookmaking, courtesy of Friends of Friends and Passion of the Weiss.

If you haven’t been to the Downtown Independent, it’s a big movie theater (you can buy popcorn and beer and everything) where you sit in the plush seats in front of the screen and let the waves of sound and visual stimulation wash over you like the dirtiest bath you’ve ever taken.

When the experience becomes a tad bit too titillating, you head up to the roof of the venue for some fresh air and a smoke and join everyone else who is saying, “HOLY SHIT THIS NIGHT IS BLOWING MY FUCKING MIND!!!!” …and that is pretty much exactly what goes down.

Events like this at the Downtown Independent do tend to sell out, so buy presale tickets to ensure entry to this massive audio visual showcase, which takes place Sunday September 26 in LA.

Shlohmo plays RBMA on the Floor (Bass Without Borders) Showcase @ Neumos Friday September 24 at Decibel Festival with Modeselektor, Pfadfinderei, Headhunter AKA Addison Groove, Mount Kimbie and Teebs

With a production finesse and beats that belie their creator’s age, twenty year-old Shlohmo AKA Henry Laufner stands on the bright side of the shifty music movement, producing multi-strata avant-hop whose undeniable thunk shuffles somewhere between abstract instrumentalism, psychedelic synth funk and hip-hop based IDM.

Decibel Festival Showcase Spotlight: BASS WITHOUT BORDERS w/MODESELEKTOR, Pfadfinderei, Headhunter, Mount Kimbie, Shlohmo & Teebs

Posted in Events, Festivals, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 4, 2010 by worldromper


Once upon a time, electronic music could be categorized by genre based on factors such as beats per minute, tone, style and other easily recognizable sonic elements.

That time is no more.

The pioneering artists of the Bass Without Borders aka Red Bull Music Academy On The Floor showcase embody this brave new era of sound where categories no longer apply. For those willing to let go of their musical preconceptions and step into a sonic experience without the reassurance of rules, the result can be complete artistic liberation. Freed from the confines of classification, post-genre music demands to be interpreted on an individual basis, creating a level of engagement that can only be found in the space where there are no boundaries – only bass.
