Known for their musical versatility and the primal energy of their live show, lespecial has earned prime slots on concerts and festivals in the US and abroad and gained attention for hosting their annual music & arts potluck festival, lespectacle. The three piece aggressive dance trio is characterized by their tight live sets ridden with raucous improv and sheer variety, a unyielding rhythmic backbone, dirty 4-string raunch thump, glitched samples and synth womp.
Combining the rhythmic appeal of dubstep, hip hop, and house with melodic dreamscapes, creative sound design, and acoustic instrumentation, Futexture skillfully weaves a futuristic blend of glitchy bass-heavy IDM and jazzy techstep into a forward thinking sound that defies classification. Transcending the typical barriers between electronic and more traditional composition, this unique sonic synthesis is equally suited for both headphones and the dancefloor. Exceptional command over detail, depth of expression, and the ability to perform in a multitude of settings leaves the future looking very bright for this emerging artist.
eelko EELKO is the moniker for Boston based musician and producer, Christopher Carchedi, who is living proof that electronic music production has allowed composers to find a sound and voice all their own, as his music is unparalleled in its uniqueness. While there is still common ground and tradition out there in the 2012 musical climate, it’s safe to say that now more than ever, no two producers will sound alike, and EELKO is one of the most developed and mature examples of this new phase in the evolution of music.
