RYAN CROSSON—-
Ryan Crosson makes house and techno inspired by the historical precedent set in his native city of Detroit and his adopted hometown of Berlin.

His musical output is shaped by pioneering artists like Richie Hawtin, Kevin Saunderson and Moodymann in the US, in addition to European heavyweights like Pantytec, Ricardo Villalobos, and Thomas Brinkmann. Situated loosely between these two defining poles, alongside his partners in Visionquest: Shaun Reeves, Seth Troxler and Lee Curtiss, Ryan delivers a obsessive attention to the constant progression of his sound and embodies a ceaseless energy that carries itself from the studio directly into his live set and DJ performances. Whether it’s solo in the studio or as a guiding hand in the Visionquest label and DJ/production partnership, Ryan consistently chooses to steer away from the predictable circuit of so-called “underground” club hits, instead favouring a process of constant renewal, returning both to early influential material and to emerging sounds that depart from well-trodden trends. As a key member of Visionquest, Ryan is responsible for much of the concepting and day to day running of what has rapidly become one of dance music’s most cherished new labels. Between them, Ryan and his partners in Visionquest have honed a whole new landscape of lush, organic techno and more esoteric leftfield electronica, gambling against the predicable to introduce emerging talent like Tale Of Us, Maceo Plex, Footprinz, Laura Jones and Mathew Burton to the record buying public. Their efforts were rewarded when their label was voted number seven in Resident Advisor’s 2011 label poll, no mean feat given that it’s back catalogue has only recently hit double digits.

In the studio, Ryan’s production and sampling practices depart from the world of electronic music by accessing histories of sound, referencing musique concrete, 1970’s funk, and East African jazz. This is best demonstrated by the evolution of his sound from minimal hits like ‘Gotham Road’ and ‘Hopskotch’, through to the organic underground house strains of his ‘Visionquest’ remixes of Kiki’s ‘Good Voodoo’ and more recently via his Visionquest remixes of David Lynch’s ‘Pinky’s Dream’ and Guy Gerber and P Diddy’s forthcoming ‘Eleven Eleven’ project. In addition to dancefloor bombs like ‘You’ve Got Me’ EP on Supplement Facts he’s also capable of conjuring up the haunting cosmic beauty of his recent ‘Birds & Souls’ project on Spectral Sound alongside the genre-busting sonic experiments that make up his recent DRM album collaboration with Cesar Merveille released at the start of the year on Visionquest.

In the past Ryan has released tracks on diverse and groundbreaking labels like m-nus, Telegraph, Trapez, and Wagon Repair and more recently Soma, Spectral Sound and Supplemental Facts. From the outset Ryan immediately gave himself over to a life of touring and performance that keeps a steady focus on both the avant-garde aesthetics and deeply emotional bonds of dance music subculture. Ryan’s back-to-back live sets with Lee Curtiss, at the sold out Visionquest showcase at fabric last year and at Movement in Detroit, stole both these shows boding well for 2012 which will see him repeat his live show at some of the world’s most famous clubs and festivals alongside a packed schedule of DJ gigs, both solo and as part of Visionquest, including his much anticipated new residency at Circo Loco at DC10 this summer.

Introduction to the Tin Whistle for Kids – Patrick Cannady

March 05, 2016 at Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=9coQPT68zcOg4T7ZJdxUeE

The Tin Whistle has taken a significant role in the folk music of Britain and Ireland, and is used to play a variety of different dance music styles, including English Morris Dance, Irish Traditional, Scottish Traditional, and others. In Ireland, it is often the first instrument future fiddlers, flautists, and pipers learn as it provides relatively quick access to a large repertoire of material. The instrument’s cheapness, versatility, and ease in learning make it a great way for children to explore folk woodwind traditions.

Join Patrick Cannady, master Irish piper, for a fun workshop on the Irish Tin Whistle. Learn how to hold and play the whistle with good posture and breathing; learn whistle maintenance and setup, and how to play a scale and a simple tune like an Irish polka or march.

Patrick has been teaching children, teens, and adults tin whistle and the uilleann pipes since 2008.

Students must have a Generation “D” tin whistle. These are available for purchase in the Old Town School Music Store.

Address: 4544 N Lincoln, 4545 N Lincoln and 909 W Armitage, Chicago

Dan Friel // Trevor de Brauw :: RESONANCE SERIES

April 13, 2016 at Hideout Inn in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=kpWskN884MtIqYaHiFe0Hp

Dan Friel
https://soundcloud.com/thrilljockey/lifedanfriel
Dan Friel creates intense, colorful and intricate instrumentals that, for all their complexity, are melodic pop songs. Equally at home in the DIY scene and the contemporary art world, Friel has been at the forefront of a movement of musicians who create dance music with a clear affinity for the extremes of noise and metal, eschewing the traditional dance clubs and adhering to the ethics of the underground. On his sophomore Thrill Jockey album Life, Friel uses his surprisingly small arsenal of gear to distort and maneuver his beloved Yamaha Portasound into an expansive sound that is incredibly varied in tone and texture. This toy keyboard, his first instrument, is manipulated beyond recognition to create songs that are frenzied and epic. Life also has moments that are incredibly sweet, idyllic, and fragile – sentiments that make perfect sense coming from a new father whose instrument of choice is his childhood keyboard.

DJ Kalendr – 3.2

March 02, 2016 at Studio Paris Nightclub in Chicago.

True House legends are made in Chicago. Several incredible artists have gotten their start in the Windy City and launched themselves into international successes. In 2014 there is a new generation of DJs/Producers already dominating the Chicago scene and ready to follow those legends in taking the world by storm. Out of this handful of artists, there is one who has already become a household name to many and who stands out with his talents for both DJing and producing. His name is Kalendr.

Kalendr, the host and producer of Groove Cruise Radio and resident headliner on The Groove Cruise a.k.a. “The Worlds Largest Floating Dance Music Festival.” Kalendr has also held every major residency in Chicago. With 15 years of DJing under his belt at a minimum of 4-6 shows a week, Kalendr is known to be one of hardest working dj’s in the city and has also made a career rocking highly respected venues. Focused every day on music production and already considered a developed artist; Kalendr is determined to take his career to the next level.

Originally from Michigan, Kalendr moved to Chicago in 2005 and immediately earned main room responsibilities at world-renowned Crobar & Sound Bar. With his ability to read and properly program such a wide range of rooms, it has presented him with the opportunity to lock down Chicago residencies and play many venues across the globe. His residencies now include Spybar (“Top Ten Dance Clubs” in America by Rolling Stone Magazine), Palladium Castle, The Mid and Studio Paris to name a few. These residencies alone demonstrate the versatility of Kalendr’s skills as a DJ and keep him in constant demand.

About NICKODEMUS:
Brooklyn-based global electronica artist Nickodemus honed his skill as resident DJ for Giant Step-produced (NYC) functions from 1995-1999 where he provided sets alongside the likes of Gil Scott Heron, Jazzmattazz, The Pharcyde, Mos Def & Kweli, KRS-One, Thievery Corporation, Groove Collective, Pucho & the Latin Soul Brothers, and Femi Kuti. In 1998, Nickodemus became resident DJ and producer for Turntables On The Hudson, one of the first late night outdoor events in New York , which went on to become an adventurous, free-spirited community & movement known for its eclectic blend of Hip-Hop, Funk, House and Soul played back to back with Latin, African, and Eastern European sounds.

In 2009 he released the Sun People album on Thievery Corporation’s ESL Music, which mixed positive vibes with collaborators hailing from destinations including Guinea, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Romania, India, Turkey, United Kingdom and New York City.

His 2007 track “Mi Swing es Tropical” was not only a Worldwide club anthem but was also featured in the iTunes + iPod adverts of the that Summer. Just as notable, he’s weighed in heavy with remixes for Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Sultan Kahn, Omar Faruk Tekliebek, Balkan Beat Box, The Pimps of Joytime & many more.

About DOS SANTOS ANTI-BEAT ORQUESTA:
Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta rocks the sounds of popular pan-Latin American dance genres—from cumbia to salsa. Their gritty, grassroots approach captures the “golden age” of streamlined tight-knit ensembles that shook sweatbox dance floors with raw and fierce energy throughout Latin America in the 1970s and 80s—honest dance music with no frills and no fear, anchored by piercing guitars, garage organs, and spirited percussion.

The group’s five members (Peter Vale, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis) have their own storied careers in a diversity of styles—including jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa, and electronica—in addition to a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing. Their visceral sound draws from this sonic, cultural, and political well of influence, and is guaranteed to make you move.

After making their debut in May of 2013, Dos Santos has been steadily making the rounds at Chicago’s premiere live music venues and festivals. They have made it their goal to provide a much-needed live artistic voice to audiences across the city, expanding the listenership, appeal, and general conversation about Latin@ music throughout Chicagoland and beyond.
