DJ Koolaid killed it at the Futro stage at Duality. It’s been years since we hosted them at Connect.03 and it was true magic to see how far they’ve come.
Videos and pictures are en-route so hold tight.
KLAKAMAS: A NIGHT OF ELECTRONIC ECCENTRICITY BROUGHT TO YOU BY RAP CLASS AND GHOST DUB.
RAP CLASS ||| DROPPING GEMS |||
Rap Class is an eclectic DJ and producer who has been operating out of the PNW for the better part of the last decade. His styles are routed in a heavy sample based audio collage and disco mix champion influence. He can deliver anything; changing the ins and outs of his routine is his specialty.
PHILIP GRASS (dropping gems)-
Philip Grass is the electronic project helmed by Burton Schaber and Ben Durfee. The two met in 2011 while studying at University of Massachusetts, and began to slowly and increasingly orbit developments in electronic music together, attending shows on a regular basis, until they began to collaborate on their own material in early 2012. Their sound is characterized by an uncompromising instinct for change, as shuffling drums and moody pitch-shifted vocals can give way to riotous synth chords, jazz samples, or any number of other possible vibes.
We interview Phaeleh during their tour through Portland with Shigeto. They both played fantastic sets both of which were highly complementary of one another. Make sure to check them out if you get the chance to see Phaeleh during his short time in the US.
Take a look at the pictures we shot of their performance on our facebook: facebook.com/mischievouspdx
We walked around and asked a few people, “If you could ask Phaeleh one question what would it be?”
