CLICKS & WHISTLES
FRIDAY APRIL 13TH, 2012
TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY, MARCH 9TH
Wildly diverse, infused with exuberance and inspired by a slap of the absurd, Modeselektor’s inarguable grooves seem to emanate from every conceivable musical genre, creating a controlled chaos whose sonic expression elevates the eyebrows and heartbeats of critics and dance floors around the world.
Boundary breaking’ is a phrase that today almost every artist wants to claim, however Modeselektor’s description as such does not come as an afterthought or marketing ploy. The idea of breaking boundaries permeates their music because this dissolution of cultural borders is ingrained in their very identities.
Modeselektor continues to be an instrumental player in their home city’s cultural agenda, curating an entire stage at the 2010 MELT! Festival in Berlin. Touring extensively this fall with Apparat as Moderat, Modeselektor will take us on a journey through their world, where the dance floor is heaving, the music is magnanimous and the boundaries were broken a long time ago.
CLICKS & WHISTLES
Clicks & Whistles is the production duo of Jorge Xavier Fernandez (Hey Whore Hey) and Petey Evans (Turbo Petey). They make bass music in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Despite the fact they're new on the scene, Clicks & Whistles are already showing that they're one of the most intriguing and exciting production duos in the US. Starting out as a long distance collaborative production project between Petey Evans,24, and Jorge Hernandez ,27, they've both taken up residence in Charlotte, NC to focus on crafting their defining sound and spreading it to eager fans across the globe. That unique sound is comprised of many genres, including but not limited to: Southern rap and hip hop, dubstep, UK garage and funky, and everything in between.
The Clicks & Whistles sound has been perking the ears of some of the US's highly regarded electronic producers and labels as well. Starting with their Radiator/Cranberry Goose EP on Atlanta's Embassy Recordings, 2011 and 2012 will see forthcoming releases on Tittsworth and Ayres T&A Records and Kingdom's Fade to Mind imprint. There will certainly be plenty more on the horizon for this talented young duo, as they continue to expose the world to the unique sound of Clicks & Whistles.
Owner of the label Embassy Recordings and producer of bass music at all tempos, Distal is most well known for blending aesthetics of the past and combining them with current high quality formats. Combining time travel with dance music Distal breaks down the more ambiguous sounds from the past and fuses them with thoughts and equations of the future. Because of this non-traditional approach to Dubstep, Funky and Techno, Distal has been forced to take a few risks, but along the way has created a very specific and friendly sound for himself.
