  • ||||||| BRUNO PRONSATO live! [seattle] - telegraph - hello?repeat - philpot: Bruno Pronsato . While establishing his reputation as Seattle’s foremost sculptor of powerful, electronic abstractions, Steven Ford dabbled with dance music production under the name Bruno Pronsato. What began as a lubricious lark to get the ladies bumpin’ and grindin’ became Ford’s primary obsession. Two years followed in which Bruno conducted live dancefloor experiments with the support of the fertile community around Seattle’s Robotrash night. This work resulted in his groundbreaking full-length on Orac, Silver Cities. Since this amazing debut, Bruno has become one of the most critically acclaimed producers and performers on the minimal scene, consistently pushing boundaries with his music yet remaining undeniably danceable.

  • Electro Nuit Blanche with MUSIC MACHINE

  • Johann is the man behind Music Machine. Johann is a DJ, producer, sound engineer and multi-instrumentalist, the local equivalent of Jack Dangers. His music is sequence based, but, as a confirmed instrumentalist, Johann spends a good deal of time on the drums, the bass and the guitar. He blends retro electronic sounds with Disco, Funk, Jungle and Lounge, and serves it with a fat slice of humour and the firm resolve to make you dance. Because of his compulsive hyper-productivity, Johann insists on the perishable virtues of his music, a style he coins as a "Concept Jetable", which translates as "Disposable Concept". Already familiar to Belgian nocturnal circles as DJ Kovak, No.9 or Mission 9, and for his Bic Music series, Johann has also co-written the single Hallo Menschen by Hallo Kosmo, on 62TV Records, and participated on Major Deluxe's Skyline Traffic Society, on Top5 Records.

    HOT CHIP

    Hot chip started making music because they were bored with alot of other music. They loved the idea of 'pop' music but not the people who make 'pop' music now.  They made their band different from most electronic music by playing everything live- no backing tracks, no computers. They make their music different from most indie music- 4 keyboards and a drum machine, not all guitars. They write folk songs and record them on old synthesizers. They sing honest words about food and love, and try to make people laugh the way you laugh at richard pryor in the same song too.

    Pretty Things present Neil Landstrumm & Tec Roc

    Essentially a live artist, Neil has built his reputation on uncompromising live performances world wide with shows most recently at Unit–Tokyo, Rex-Paris, Tresor-Berlin and Electrowerkz-London.
    Bass-Tech beats, Grime, Electro-Techno, Broken-Beat, Miami bass, beat throw downs or dirty swing style-lets stop the pigeons with their holes and get on with the real deal.. Landstrumm creates his classic stomach pumping bass, metallic and melodic clangs and odd funky percussive swing lines live and in full effect. This isn't some laptop-noodle performance. It's live electronics at it's very best.
