IDP Flyer Intelligent Dance Party 004

The fourth event in the San Francisco-based Intelligent Dance Party series kicks off 2016 featuring a mix of live experimental and IDM performances progressing later into more dancefloor-oriented sets. On Friday, January 8, 2016 Glenn Jackson, KnobGoblin, Tony Manfre & Liz Revision perform at The Basement, 222 Hyde St, San Francisco, CA 94102, a multi-leveled 21+ venue from 9:30 PM – 2:00 AM.

Renzo Gorrio was inspired to create a San Francisco IDM night from his experiences at the Miami-based label Schematic parties in his hometown. Often they featured live acts with an emphasis on electronic performance. DJs were used to warm up the crowd or segue into a more responsive late-night dance party mode. A similar focus remains in the San Francisco incarnation where the focus is on live performance in intimate venues that provide a unique opportunity to watch musicians perform their craft up close.

Previous IDP parties held at Underground SF were a success, featuring Romulo Del Castillo (Schematic, Phoenecia), bioMecanicoXanopticon (Hymen Records), Wake (Proximal Records) and  Alexandernaut (Gray Area).

Live experimental/IDM performances progressing later into more dance floor oriented sets. For your smart ass.

Simon Stalenhag’s retro-revisionist future distopian world

Here’s an artist I found on Tumblr who creates completely digital illustrations that he sells on Redbubble. Some of my favorites:

Recently he’s printed a book containing his images with a narrative attached:

In 1954, the Swedish government ordered the construction of the world’s largest particle accelerator. The facility was complete in 1969, located deep below the pastoral countryside of Mälaröarna. The local population called this marvel of technology The Loop. These are its strange tales.
Simon Stålenhag’s paintings of Swedish 1980s suburbia, populated by fantastic machines and strange beasts, have spread like wildfire on the Internet. The 2015 Kickstarter for the English version of the book raised over $320,000. Stålenhag’s portrayal of a childhood against a backdrop of old Volvo cars and coveralls, combined with strange and mystical machines, creates a unique atmosphere that is both instantly recognizable and utterly alien.

You can buy Tales from the Loop here.

DJ Mix from Chiditarod 2015 @ Emporium

Chiditarod X 2015 at Emporium with the Secret Gentlemen’s Club by Liz Revision on Mixcloud

Here’s a mix I did for the Secret Gentlemen’s Chiditarod X checkpoint at Emporium Arcade Bar in Wicker Park. It’s mostly tech-house with quite a few video game references and 8-Bit / chiptune stuff scattered about. And, well, people in costume swarming the place in droves. Quite fun.
