Da Mind of Traxman / TONIGHT in BK


we’ve been delayed on posting this on the blog-blog for a while now, but traxman’s mind of traxman lp is a juke masterpiece and one of the best albums we’ve heard so far this year. the chicago veteran has been important in the evolution of chicago house into juke, and touches on so many styles and insane drum patterns and sample flips it can be dizzying, but as a whole the record is a serious psychedelic slice of pure soul music from the future.

let these amazing exclusive tracks traxman hooked us up with warm you up for his set tonight (fri the 25th) at 285 kent alongside Howse, Octo Octa, Ñaka Ñaka, The Range, and yours truly. come get your mind reprogrammed to 160bpm, or as traxman said, it’s like you’re missing “ringling brothers, the greatest show on earth” check it out.

traxman – lifeeee is for ever
traxman – footworkin on air
traxman – 1988
bonus:
traxman – budda worx
traxman – movinnnn
traxman – 1976

WEIRD TERRAIN: Traxman, Howse (Record Release), ÑAKA ÑAKA, Octo Octa, Rezzie

Traxman just dropped a juke masterpiece with his “Mind of Traxman” LP on Planet Mu. He is one of the best vinyl djs in the world. Howse finally gets a proper release with “Lay Hollow” on Tri Angle on the 28th and coming in from MA with The Range for the occasion, bringing their wicked strain of ghost juke with them. Ñaka Ñaka is in town from Mexico after killing it at our Festival Nrmal party there recently. 100% Silk’s Octo Octa is a wonder with his live manipulations of his silky beats. Disparate spells will join and intermingle on this Weird Terrain. Touch it.

Traxman – Footworkin on Air
Howse – VBS
Octo Octa – I’m Trying
Yeah Rezzie – Clean Two

weird magic presente: Geneva Jacuzzi as Auto Garvo in Idiot Menagerie of the Automatic Dream Crud (+ Ital, Veronica Vasicka, Steve Summers)

we are thrilled to co-present this special full theatrical performance by geneva jacuzzi, who, if our last encounter with her is any indication, is pretty much the epitome of our weird magic, and this time, for the first time, geneva’s music will come to life with an “elaborate theatrical set, geometric choreography by the dance-troupe Spazz Hands, elaborately bizarre costuming, and absurdist aerial acrobatics.” i’ll be opening the night with a 2-hour set, followed by geneva’s performance, after which the train will be chugging all night with beats provided by minimal wave’s veronica vasicka, and a tag-team set between steve summers and ital. let the full description tantalize you, below.
