The Rhythm & Bass showcase brings a trio of LA projects that inhabit the thin space between dance music and traditional songwriting.
TOKiMONSTA returns to Decibel after 3 years, growing leaps and bounds in the meantime. In 2011 she was the fresh face on Brainfeeder’s intimidating roster. Now she’s one of the world’s top DJ’s, playing festivals like Coachella and Sasquatch and getting picked up by ULTRA. Likewise, her music has a taken on a confident, more polished sheen.
Baths (a favorite of EIC Nikki’s) is Anticon’s resident heartache. The construction of his music aligns itself with other textural alchemists like Daedelus and Gold Panda. The content heaves of melancholy, an adult management of sadness that seems the norm for the modern state of post-existence. Exquisitely uncomfortable intimacy.
Made In Heights is a collaboration between hometown son Sabzi (Blue Scholars, Common Market) and vocalist Kelsey Bulkin, aiming for that post-modern, sultry sweet spot that acts like Kelela and FKA Twigs target as well. Sabzi always enjoys coming home, playing a secret, pop-up show at the ID’s Trichome headshop earlier this year.
