Recorded at Morseland for Heartbeats
27 October 2010

In anticipation of the impending Halloween, our theme for the night was “Spooky Techno”; also on the bill was Lokua and Trevael. Subtle samples and special effects were layered over dark tracks to enhance the spooky feel. Enjoy!

Chicago Sewer Live @ Heartbeats

October 16th, 2009

Searchl1te and The Abominable Twitch are two of the most prolific and forward sounding producers (as well as DJs and performers) I’ve heard in the windy city. Together they have teamed up as CHICAGO SEWER, “that chunky ill shit that incessantly flows below the surface”. The following p/a was recorded at the weekly series Heartbeats @ Morseland.

Every Wednesday Lokua of Moment Sound hosts the event Heartbeats @ Morsland, a night featuring a wide array of DJs and live performers from all walks of Chicago’s electronic music spectrum. Here we have two recordings from one of those nights. First is a live p/a from K-rAd, who immediately brought the dance-floor to life with an excellent cross of his own live material and DJ trickery. After that we have a completely improvised, synth-heavy set from the creator of Shiku Garu Projects, Dreamlogicc. Special shout out to M50 and Slowchildren for closing the night out, and to Gravity-Max who provided the live visuals, good times. Painting / Photo by J. Beckman

Lokua Live @ Heartbeats

May 2nd, 2009

lokua_small.jpg

The following cast is a combination of two live sets by Lokua performed at Morseland on Chicago’s North Side for the Weekly series Heartbeats. The first half of the cast (00:00-22:24) took place on March 25 and phases from grass-roots-hip hop to electro jazz-funk to space-krunk. The second half (22:25-49:34) actually took place on an earlier date (March 18) and is highly improvisational, stylistically ranging from ambient-experimental to a minimal tech-house sort of sound.

These sets have also been featured on Solipsistic Nation along with an interview and two extra studio tracks.
