As the title would suggest, Chicago’s Sonotheque will play host to Seattle’s Lusine and Barcelona/Portland’s (and my favorite electronic music critic) Philip Sherburne tonight. It should be a lot of fun; I’ve heard a lot of good things about performances from both these gentlemen. Warm-up gals Kate Simko and Sassmouth are also great talents, so make sure to get there on time — 9 p.m.
And just for kicks, here’s a taste of Lusine’s production/remix skills to stir you from your homes and into Chicago’s streets.
Lusine Icl, “Shoot the Moon” [Hymen Records, Mad Monkey Records]
Alex Smoke, “Make My Day” (Lusine remix) [Soma Quality Recordings]
Alex Smoke, “Prima Materia”
Frank Martiniq, “Boost” (Robag Wruhme remix)
The Glimmers, “Time 4 Action” (Padded Cell remix)
For the time being I’m going to have to offer fewer tracks per post, as my posting is out-pacing the growth of my collection. I’d also like to note that I recently started writing for the always wunderbar Resident Advisor. Not sure when my first review will be up, but I’ll be linking each in case you’d like to read them. And finally, I’ve started to list some of the better techno events sweeping through Chicago in the coming months on the sidebar. After what felt like an absolute dearth of worthwhile shows, Chicago is getting a few months of highly anticipated acts; let’s hope it keeps up.
