With the next installment of Sound Noir party we are honored to host an album release event for the LP that will definitely have a strong impact on the electronic music landscape of 2010 and beyond – John Roberts’ debut full-length ‘Glass Eights’.
John Roberts (Dial, Laid | Berlin) – LIVE
Norm Talley (Third Ear, Sushitech, Thema | Detroit)
Lenny Posso (Thema, Sound Noir)
…Helping Hands (Sound Noir)
J Red (Sound Noir)
Joining us from Berlin for the occasion will be Mr. Roberts himself, who will perform a live set based on his masterwork to be released October 11th on the legendary German minimalist imprint Dial. Using samples of old dusty records, live instrumentation and tracker software run on an antiquated Commodore Amiga, John has created a truly personal and incredibly emotional style of house music – neither an imitation of the classics, nor a bow to the trends, but an independent vision based on one man’s beautiful musical ideas and skills.
Co-starring will be one of the true masters of the original Detroit Beatdown sound. Norm Talley has spent past ten years showing the world that the motor city can create house and disco no less sublime than the techno it’s best known for. Along the way he has released records on such reputable British labels as Third Ear and Sushitech with a strong 12″ for New York’s Thema Records coming out next. Amazingly, this will be his debut New York appearance!
Playing alongside the guests will be residents Lenny Posso, Helping Hands (aka Amaury Arias & Andrey Radovski) and J Red, while our own multimedia wiz Lightwerk sets the mood with his live video manipulations. Completing our vision of the night will be a unique project by a guest visual artist to be announce soon via Twitter.
