-SMALL BLACK (DJ SET)-
Formed at the tail-end of 2008 as a bedroom recording project, Small Black first made waves with their eponymous debut EP. Recorded in the attic of singer Josh Kolenik’s uncle’s remote Long Island beach-house/surfboard workshop, it served as an ideal introduction to the group with its pulsing patchwork synths and addictive, stay-gold hooks that seemed to unfurl themselves gradually over repeated listens. Slightly more immediate and polished than its predecessor, Small Black’s new album “New Chain” remains a continuation of this contrasting ethos – a delirious smudging of the lines between melancholy and nostalgia, tension and celebration, unabashed pop music and experimentation.
-SINKANE (DJ SET)-
Yeasayer’s Ahmed Gallab has an incredibly colorful back story, one that starts in Sudan before Omar El-Bashir took over and has since made stops in Provo, Boston and Ohio. Though he’s contributed to the live performances and tours of bands like Caribou and of Montreal since the age of 19 — currently, he serves as Yeasayer’s resident multi-instrumentalist — he has always been Sinkane. Though Sinkane’s new record will include contributions from the likes of Twin Shadow’s George Lewis and Yeasayer’s Ira Wolf and Mary J. Blige/Beyoncé collaborator Casey Benjamin, Gallab’s sonic ideas constitute the core of Sinkane’s sound
