Sasha Desree & Terekke
This past Sunday saw us waving off the summer with one last S!CK MAGIC bbq, this time live-style, with an intimate group of friends treated to a series of home-grown hardware sets and a few surprises. Slava, fresh back from Russia, was set to do a dj/live hybrid, but set the cdjs aside in favor of a rare 45-min suite of new tracks. Terekke and Sasha got into an unplanned live jam and went so deep they had no idea they had played for over an hour (it really gets going around the 26: mark). Meanwhile, Malory and Hand of God, both on Godmode, dropped homespun techno that had people spilling their mustard. Thanks to the artists for letting us share these, because who are we to keep them to ourselves..
Purple Trax Label Night #1: Live recordings/mixes from Sasha Jan Rezzie, Michael Beharie, Sol Aire, Sasha Desree, Greem Jellyfish, Logan Takahashi
Our first Purple Trax Label Night went down last week at Bossa Nova Civic Club and was massively fun, and we’ve got evidance. Big thanks to Luis Nieto Dickens (vid) and Chris Video (aud) for helping capture the vibe.
Last Friday, Discwoman brought Beta Librae, Umfang, Via App and Ciarra Black together at Palisades for a night of all-female, all-Brooklyn, live hardware sets (with Mary S on the visuals and Discwoman’s Frankie Hutch on the decks). Bossa Nova’s reigning queens, Umfang and Beta, only recently began playing live; Via App just moved to Brooklyn and is poised to slay; and it was our first encounter with Ciarra. All of them blew minds, even moreso than a certain techno legend we caught the following night. Stream the live recordings (thanks to Umfang), along with some photos from the night, below.
