I know it's hot but it may be worth withstanding the heat for this one...
August 15 Warm Up: DJ Pierre, Phuture 303, House of Stank, and Growing
Date: Saturday, August 15, 2009
Time: 2:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Afro Acid hosts this sizzling edition of Warm Up, featuring DJ Pierre (Chicago), PHuture 303 (Chicago), House of Stank (New York) and Growing.
Chicago native DJ Pierre is famous for pioneering the genre of Acid House in 1987 as part of the DJ trio Phuture. This electronic music magnate continues to innovate as a DJ and producer, ushering his genre into the 21st century.
PHuture 303 is the 2009 incarnation of the legendary Chicago group "Phuture," which was originally formed by DJs Pierre, Spanky and Herb J in 1985. The group is best known for pioneering the genre of Acid House in 1985 with a single track. DJs Spank-Spank & Proffessor Trax now make up PHuture 303, and keep this Chicago house legend alive.
DJs Christy Love and W. Jeremy are House of Stank, a DJ duo originally formed in 2006 to host weekly parties in downtown Manhattan. The parties soon grew into a hotbed of musical collaboration, making the pair known for their spiritual flavor of tech and deep house, and their work to develop the genre itself.
Joe DeNardo, Kevin Doria, and newest member Sadie Laska are the drone-rock trio Growing. Ephemeral, effect-laden guitar improvisations are layered with glitches and glazed over with a womblike vibe of ambient electronic pulsation.
