JAPANESE NUDISCO

 

Japan’s thriving electronic music scene has been putting out some hot, French-influenced nudisco in recent months. Spring is in the air, and now that the snow is starting to melt what better way to celebrate than to dust off the disco and muzak samples and cut loose?

GO TO: ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER – NATE BOYCE – RONE

Sound & visual power pair Oneohtrix Point Never and Nate Boyce are coming to the ‘Sco April 5th.

russian_mind2

 

Brooklyn-based electronic sound artist Daniel Lopatin produces trance-like, vapor-wave sounds as his alias Oneohtrix Point Never. His stimulating tunes are reminiscent of a 22nd century orchestra. The culmination of his sounds invokes a reliquary experience, as well as one that is strongly visual. Installation and video artist Nate Boyce often toys with digital spaces and sculptures in his videos, creating imaginary landscapes unbound to any 4D confinements. Boyce will be creating live visuals in conjunction with Lopatin’s sounds. It might be a numbing experience. It might be like stargazing but cooler.
