For month four, we shift gears as Humanaut hands the keys over to one of the most respected music men in Pittsburgh: CUTUPS (AKA Geoff Maddock). Over the years, Geoff has worked tirelessly to bring a huge variety of cutting-edge music through this city. Join us as he highlights some of the best artists from the region in another round of Belvedere’s dance floor punishment.
“When Humanaut crew asked me to plan an instance of their new but already smashing Out of Order night, I jumped at the chance. They always bring a high production value to their shows and have commanded alot of respect among the informed dance music crowd in pittsburgh. It was fun to put together a lineup that would rep my own tastes, but also be a hit at a Humanaut party.
Jason Burns immediately came to mind as somebody I’d like to play this night. He’s one of Cleveland’s originals in the dubstep scene, both as a dj for regular nights and one offs, a producer who’s been getting play all over (“Back 2 You” was one of XLR8Rs top 100 Downloads of 2011), and co-promoter bringing in top acts in the genre for more than a few years. His style leans heavily to the deeper, soulful end of the spectrum, but he doesn’t really limit himself to one style or mood, other than just playing top notch tunes.
Vasculator is a long time fan, electronic hardware geek, and producer of techno and left field electronic music, but has existed mostly on the fringes of pittsburgh’s scene. He’s been a collaborator with the Technoir Audio crew doing live techno, toured doing modular synth work with
industrial act Prometheus Burning, and played blistering original breakcore live sets in Detroit and the west coast. This time he’s doing and all new stripped down techno live set that combines his digital and analog gear.
I was looking for one more guest to round out the night, when I remembered that Jose “Mr. Hamilton” was looking to put together a classic IDM set. You may know him from his live sets as Mr. Hamilton or as part of Ekofield, or his deep house sets at various spots around town, but he’s also a big fan of left field electronic music and will be opening up with a set of 90s/ early 2000′s selections.
