Hess is More
The brain-child of Danish composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Mikkel Hess, this seven-piece p owerhouse balances the spontaneity of a Brooklyn warehouse rave with the complex scope of an orchestra drawing comparisons to everyone from Erlend Oye and Jon Brion to CAN. Their 2011 Nublu Records release "Creation Keeps the Devil Away" continues to receive global acclaim with Hess himself actively composing and performing with the Royal Danish Ballet and being included in the soundtrack for the Amnesty International 50th Anniversary Film.
Introducing Jeffrey Jerusalem, the West Coast's next hot-shit producer, performer, and remixer. The high-energy moniker of Portland, Oregon's Jeff Brodsky, Jeffrey Jerusalem delivers ecstatic rhythms, and primitive bliss as part of his multimedia lifestyle. As a producer, Jerusalem's music combines playful, lo-fi bedroom disco—characteristic of Portland's dance scene—with the top shelf techno-craftsmanship of his peers at DFA.
A lifelong musician, and producer, the 25-year-old Brodsky has adapted his meticulous home-studio aesthetic into a schizophrenic, postmodern circus of a live show that has been catching a lot of attention on the West Coast in 2009. While many electronic performers are content to stand behind a computer, or some array of samplers and drum machines, Jerusalem's shows deliver a spasmodic and hilarious combination of aneurism-inducing falsettos, virtuosic percussion, and a frenzied array of improvised sampling and digital manipulation in the course of a 30 minute performance. With a well received full-length available on Lasercave Records, a string of high-profile remixes, and a slew of EPs in the works, this talent is poised to be that next populist link between club culture and DIY punk attitude.
