Kieran Hebden's game is virtuosity. Since honing his skills as a member of post-rock outfit Fridge and releasing his first solo projects on Trevor Jackson's Output Recordings in the 90s, the man most commonly known as Four Tet has developed one of the most distinct voices in electronic music. Whether it's instrumental hip hop or folk-fueled micro house, remixes for everyone from Radiohead to Nathan Fake, collaborations with Burial and Jamie xx, or genre-defying DJ sets with his brother-from-another Dan Snaith, this Londoner now residing in Brooklyn never fails to leave his mark. A longtime team member of the Red Bull Music Academy, Four Tet now brings his live show to Webster Hall, with support from 2013 Academy participant koreless (Young Turks), and some very special guests. And yes, the ticket price is correct.
Emerging electro wunderkid Breakbot crafts party tunes. Big ones.
Following in the footsteps of French electro duo Justice, Parisian Thibaut Berland aka Breakbot has mastered the art of melting together all the best elements of dance, electro and hip hop with skill and precision. And a laptop.
Born in 1981, Thibaut was immersed in the sights and sounds of the subsequent decade, and remained appropriately pulled between his love of animation graphics/comics, and music. He chose neither one clear
path, nor another. Possessing a degree in computer graphics, and having created his first animation short film co-directed with two friends, Thibaut now makes music videos, commercials and such. By day. By night however, he cooks up choice cut electronic music, experimenting with beats, layers, keyboards, vocals, and Daft Punk-esque get-yo-funk-on basslines.
Drop The Lime
The world knows Luca Venezia as a globetrotting DJ/producer and the founder of Brooklyn, New York's Trouble & Bass label. As Drop the Lime, he's been fearlessly casting spells over clubs and festivals around the world for years, as well as remixing the likes of Major Lazer, Robyn and Moby and producing for artists like, T. Mills, Spankrock and Bosco Del Rey. Venezia's name is synonymous with dance music in New York – born and bred in Manhattan, the glittering, grimy pulse of the city is the main inspiration behind DTL's now-infamous heavy bass sound.
Our protagonist is no stranger to clubland, but his new album Enter the Night reveals an obsession with rockabilly that's been burning in Venezia's heart since the age of seven. As influenced by Richie Valens as Richie Hawtin, the record finds Venezia marrying his blues guitar licks and unmistakably sultry croon to the sheer dance music wizardry that has become his trademark.
Corey Baker aka Kill Paris has been scorching the internet blogesphere this summer. Receiving support from A-Trak, Dillon Francis, Flux Pavilion, and Skrillex. Kill Paris's focus has been on giving his music away for free and make it easier for people to share with others. He just had his own "name your own price" album release on killparis.bandcamp.comcall "The Beginning (2012)" His also soundcloud features 23 songs that anyone can download for free. Being an Ableton Certified Trainer, his software of choice is Ableton Live. Live shows consist of 90 percent originals and remixes. Corey is currently sharing the stage all over the US with the likes of Pretty Lights, Zion I, Mimosa, AraabMuzik, Whiskey Pete, Figure, Mac Miller, Infected Mushroom, & Nicky Romero to name a few.
Austin, TX own RUN DMT's sound is a reflection of a torrid love affair with heavy basslines, thunderous beats, and haunting melodies. Forming in the summer of 2010, RUN DMT decided to take the approach of no-holds-barred heavy bass music without borders, touching on Dubstep, Drumstep, Moombahton, UK Funky, atmospheric Downtempo and more. In its short 1.5 year of history it has made high profile appearances at Camp Bisco, Nocturnal Festival, Bass Invasion, and Snowglobe Music Festival. Its original productions and remixes have become recent playlist staples for DJs ranging from Bassnectar to MSTRKRFT to Craze to 12th Planet and beyond.
RUN DMT's first official release on Play Me Records shot straight to the TOP TEN on Beatport with "Drop Top" hitting #2 on the Drum & Bass Charts, and "Bro 2.0" hitting #3 on the Dubstep Charts. RUN DMT has released tracks on JFK's Teenage Riot Records, Evol Intent, T&A and Heavy Artillery, and are featured on the soundtrack for the video game, "Mortal Kombat" (2011).RUN DMT has also remixed for the likes of Bird Peterson, Asking Alexandria, and Figure. The debut full length album "Union of Opposites" to be released in June 2012 on Play Me Records worldwide and will feature the likes of Chali 2na, Dj Swamp, and more.
RUN DMT's first mixtape was released late December 2011 exclusively thru Mad Decent: http://maddecent.com/blog/run-dmt-year-of-the-white-rabbit-mix

Light Year was created many ions ago in a celestial orb eastside of Sydney Australia. In mathematical terms 1+1 = 2 but -1 and it equates to a new dawning for Light Year, a streamlined, a Light Year 1.0 or numero uno.
LY saw the release 'Night/Vision' featuring the now cult classic 'Sex Education' brought into an international spotlight; eagerly played out, happily edited and highly recommended by the likes of Soulwax, Erol Alkan, Tiga and Mr Oizo. This was only the start, for the release of '5 Girls' 6 months later was met with an even greater reception, getting a thorough tanning from deejays all over the world including those turning the wheels at BBC Radio 1. Soon remix requests came for the likes of The Bag Raiders, Surkin, ZZT, Alex Gopher, Classixx & Feadz.
2011 has also brought jaunts of both Europe and America, both continents playing host to a dozen plus packed out club soirees. Upon returning home LY performed a run of sell out gigs nationally including Splendour In The Grass and Parklife to celebrate the '5 Girl5 Remixed' release, which featured handiwork from Strip Steve, Harvard Bass, Alex Gopher, and more. Now firmly nestled between the hip and tail bone of late night revelers, LY has dialed in the future.
With two EPs and two continental club tours under the belt, Light Year is forward thinking in a large vortex of momentum. Wind even whispers news of a massive new single release before 2011 comes to an end with more national and international touring to follow. Stay close, as this is a new beginning, a Light Year renaissance, so fear not the future is only Light Years away.
Oliver have found the beating heart inside the dance machine. Whether moving bodies at the world's biggest electronic festivals, or hand-crafting digital gems in the studio, the producer / DJ duo of U-Tern and Oligee are responsible for some of the funkiest, toughest, and most diverse dance music today.
After spending years writing, producing, DJing and digging for vinyl, U-Tern and Oligee linked up in LA to forge something groundbreaking. They took their shared '80s baby tastes – relentlessly groovy R&B, boombox worthy hip-hop, soaring electropop hooks – and mashed them together in remixes for everyone from Chromeo and Foster The People to Breakbot and techno godfather Juan Atkins. Original jams like "All Night" and "Dirty Talk" (supported by dance music luminaries like Alan Braxe and Busy P) took Oliver's back-to-the-future sound even further, while high-powered collaborations with A-Trak ("Disco Nap") and Destructo ("LA Funky") brought the duo to the festival circuit, where they kept hands in the air all summer. With the release of their Fool's Gold EP Mechanical, Oliver push their hybrid sound to even funkier new horizons. The stadium worthy opener "MYB" perfectly segues into the moody strut of "Night Is On My Mind," before shifting gears with the hands-in-the-air ecstasy of "Control" and riding off into the sunset on the title track's cinematic pulse. With non-stop DJ sets on deck (complete with Oligee's live keyboard riffs) and even more new music, there's no telling where the beats will take them next. "Oliver is all over the map," says U-Tern. "But we're going to have a good time no matter what."
Let's rewind a bit for those playing catch up: the LOL Boys an internet-based electronic duo comprised of Jerome Potter (a.k.a. Jerome LOL) and Montreal-based Markus Garcia. After 4 years of putting out buzzworthy EPs on various independent labels, they scored a surprise #1 on the KCRW chart a couple of weeks ago with their recently released Changes EP on LA-based Friends Of Friends Records. The LOL Boys, and Jerome in particular, are among the most in-demand DJs in the LA club scene.
Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise are good friends who are inspired by California, mezcal, dancing, good food, and friends. Filip is a Danish producer now living in LA who plays bass in Ima Robot; Jeffrey throws the infamous Blow Up party in San Francisco and used to be in the hardwave band the Calculators with Luke and Vito from the Rapture. Poolside's debut single "Do You Believe?" was charted by Aeroplane and Dimitri From Paris, and Dazed & Confused praised the song for its "pop-tinged disco, brimming with optimistic vocals and retro acid synths," while NME lauded its "supremely casual decadence." Poolside is currently working on their debut album.
There are DJs that are heavily tied to styles, people who go on to become figures
synonymous with a certain sound or a particular approach to mixing; and then there
are DJ's DJs – a different breed of people who manage to make the whole process
of blending records from disparate genres look (and sound) seamless. Often, it's
not just about beat matching perfectly, it's as much about capturing a mood and
evolving it through your record selections as it is locking on to a consistent rhythm
and that's something that Streatham bred DJ, Steve Bishop has proven himself to be
mightily adept at over the years and his now ample fan base reflects that talent.
As much as his sets under the Oneman moniker may have started turning heads
by melding old school UK garage with DMZ style dubstep, he's proven through his
DJ sets and his regular presence on London institution Rinse FM that he can do so
much more than just marry classics with current beats. Whether through his famed
hip hop & R&B sets for The Boiler Room, the now legendary back to back sets with
Jackmaster or opening for dance titans such as SBTRKT and Major Lazer, Oneman
has that rare ability to destroy any party and leave you in no doubt who it was
you've been listening to.
With two varied and acclaimed mix CDs, FABRICLIVE 64 and Rinse 15, to his
name already, he's got plans to release a third mixtape in the New Year and that,
combined with his European and US tours that are already in the offing before the
end of the first quarter, makes it plain to see that 2013 will be further outlining
Oneman's tireless passion and work ethic.
Clicks & Whistles
Despite the fact they're new on the scene, Clicks & Whistles are already showing that they're one of the most intriguing and exciting production duos in the US. Starting out as a long distance collaborative production project between Petey Evans,24, and Jorge Hernandez ,27, they've both taken up residence in Charlotte, NC to focus on crafting their defining sound and spreading it to eager fans acr
oss the globe. That unique sound is comprised of many genres, including but not limited to: Southern rap and hip hop, dubstep, UK garage and funky, and everything in between.
The Clicks & Whistles sound has been perking the ears of some of the US's highly regarded electronic producers and labels as well. Starting with their Radiator/Cranberry Goose EP on Atlanta's Embassy Recordings, 2011 and 2012 will see forthcoming releases on Tittsworth and Ayres T&A Records and Kingdom's Fade to Mind imprint. There will certainly be plenty more on the horizon for this talented young duo, as they continue to expose the world to the unique sound of Clicks & Whistles.
