Xenia Rubinos

Magic Trix by Brooklynite Xenia Rubinos might
cause an initial reaction like you are being tasered
(bro). There is little to compare to the sharp, thick
spine of a keyboard sound that shoots at you from the
very first moments. Surprisingly, the record's
aggressive sound is achieved without the use of
guitars. Xenia, together with drummer/sound magician
Marco Buccelli, create a dozen aggressively danceable
songs. An oblique assemblage of uncommon rhythms,
powerhouse vocals and dance-til-you-puke energy
combine to make Magic Trix one of the most exciting
debut albums in years.

Having toured the US nationally including official showcases at
SXSW, Xenia continues touring steadily in support of her
album release on Ba Da Bing Records. Xenia's music has been celebrated by fans and
critics alike with features in MTV, VICE, NPR, Fader, WNYC, The New Yorker.

"One of our favorite artists of the year, truly new and exciting!" - NPR
"Absurdist pop powered by soul-fueled vocals" - VICE
"Somehow she manages to always do weird s**t you weren't ready for, while making it a delight to listen to at the same time!"- MTV
"Standout act, a lo-fi, minimalist sound sometimes likened to Bjork."- Billboard Magazine

Live Footage

In 2008 a humble basement apartment in Brooklyn became the laboratory for the Brooklyn-based electroacoustic duo, Live Footage. Mike Thies and Topu Lyo first met at a Halloween party, unaware that years later they would be described as some of the finest "surrealist soundtrack composers" in the making by scoring some of the most eclectic contemporary pieces on air, in dance and in tune composing their own music. Conceived through the art of improvisation, Lyo plays cello, incorporating the use of live loops and a handful of electronics with no pre-recorded samples of any kind. Thies plays drums and keyboards, often simultaneously. Live Footage's formula is unique songs are structured in such a way that enables them to actually build loops without disaster, all while keeping the music's integrity and allowing ample room for improvisation even when covering the likes of Jay-Z, Dr. Dre and Squarepusher. It is Live Footage's coherent complexity that inherently wows new ears away. Plain and simple, they are "cinematic, experimental, yet still catchy and melodic." Their first & second full-length independent albums are already available on iTunes, their Jay Dee EP is currently live on Orisue's Website. In the meantime, Live Footage will be touring America, Canada, Korea, and Europe while fulfilling their weekly residency at Apotheke in NYC.
