This event is all ages
Back at Lit City Rave once again, this time on tour of N America - DJ Funeral, the ever elusive Body High figure rises from the macabre sides of club music, with Baltimore-style breakbeats, horror film synth work, and hard-hitting percussion. From gothic arpeggios to ominous echoes, Funeral’s nighttime aesthetic underscores frenetic, blood-pumping rhythms that'll have you droppin down low all night. Expect a ton of original tracks and club edits - mad oneaways you might never be so lucky to hear again. He just dropped a new track for free download to announce the tour:
One half of the mysterious Ancestral Club Mix DJs and Vissacoor projects respectively, Dave Quam began exploring the weird end of dance music as he cut his teeth as a journalist. Born and raised Portland, he moved to Chicago in 2005 to study photography, film, and sound at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. During his time as a student, he started Djing and discussing music from all over the globe on his blog It’s After the End of the World. He rose to international attention through his writing and photos of then underground juke and footwork artists of his adopted home, which were some of the first to thoroughly document the scene. Since then, his work has been published in magazines such as Spin, XLR8R, The Wire, and Red Bull Music Academy’s online content. He recently relocated back to his hometown of Portland, and has been DJing all over the country, while spending lots of time in the studio making his own creations of experimental dance music.Nothing has changed when it comes to his productions and DJ sets. His focus seems to be pushing the boundaries. His forthcoming material is undeniably forward thinking and refined! Largely responsible for Lit City moniker, keep your ears peeled for new material on Lit City Trax in the future. Massacooramaan is easily one of the most original and creative DJs around. If you haven't cought him yet or you just need another dose, now is your time, he will take you to every corner of the world and back.
Signed to Kingdom’s Fade To Mind imprint, Brooklyn-based producer Rizzla was a fixture of Boston’s alternative nightlife scene before relocating to New York, throwing the applauded “post-queer dance party” Nu Life and creating the KUNQ artist collective. Combining cutting-edge global sounds with the discursive rigor of art history and critical theory, Rizzla's euphoric performances connect contemporary Caribbean music with the sounds of NYC's infamous warehouse raves.
As an undergraduate, Rizzla studied at UWI Trinidad with playwright and filmmaker Tony Hall, and completed postgraduate work at Brandeis University, examining the critical intersections of postcolonial studies, art history, and nightlife culture. His unique trajectory and sound made him a regular at Venus X's trendsetting NYC fete GHE20 GOTH1K.
Rizzla has performed internationally at numerous clubs and institutions such as MoMA PS1, Brooklyn Museum, ICA Boston, The Suzanne Geiss Company, and the Wadsworth Atheneum. He collaborated several times with DIS Magazine and Opening Ceremony, and has been featured in ArtForum, Fader, Fact Magazine, XLR8R, The Boston Phoenix, among others.
