“Three of Seattle’s most innovative electronic producers come together for the event of a lifetime.”
By this time next week, the line will be out the door for Rainy Dawg Radio and ASUW’s featured artist concert. On Thursday, January 31, three very talented and diverse electronic artists will be gracing the stage of Parnassus Cafe and Gallery.
Kid Smpl is the current alias of 22-year-old Seattle producer Joey Butler. A veteran of stage and studio, Butler has been busy developing a style of atmospheric bass music that continues to deepen with each release. The sounds are spread across a canvas made wide with breathing room. Briefly put, it evokes the introspection of a far-flung space colony’s forest terrarium, late into the evening, alone or with close company. His up-and-coming full-length album promises to provide a fully realized picture of Butler as a producer, articulating the hazy future vision he has been praised for on numerous EPs, tracks, and remixes released to date.
An integral member of the Dropping Gems collective, Seattle’s Alex Osuch aka DJAO approaches electronic music with nature in mind, incorporating live vocals and instrumentation into his vision of hazy environments. Much like Kid Smple, DJAO’s sounds err on the side of introspection as they draw the listener into an electro fusion environment. Be on the lookout for an LP from DJAO in 2013.
After a sold out EP and plenty of press, electronic producer Black Hat, is nothing less than the epitome of ambient noise music. As described by Seattle’s well-known newspaper, The Stranger, “Black Hat create itchy ambient ‘dystopian high life sounds’ for lying on the floor and contemplating black holes and time dilation.” From ambient funk to electronic noise, the symphonic sounds of Black Hat’s creation leaves nothing left to want in his abstract collection of musical talent.
These three are bound to put on a fabulous show full of audience interaction and electronic noise. With over a hundred people already planning on going, this gig is setting up to be a full house! So get there early! Doors open at 7, show starts at 7:30.
