Refixed: Controller Bad Asses and Breakbeat Masters
Northern California's music scene has long been a bellwether of trends bound for the global stage, and today the zeitgeist is “Controllerism”. The word has come to mean excitement and engagement, a move away from pre-programmed music and towards improvisational performance. When paired with SF's favorite electronic styles it forms a heady blend of danceable beats and on-stage antics.
The party will follow the same concept as the album: unite crunked out finger drumming, live electronic music performance, and dope DJs. The lineup includes such controller-innovators and breakbeat masters as: The Flying Skulls, Edison, Mad Zach, Slayers Club, Kitty-D, Shygone Beats, Citizen Ten, and Life1. Hosted by Joe Mousepad & The Zap Tap, sponsors and partners include: Beat Church, 1320 Records, The Untz, Slayers Club, LoveTech, 16Squarez.com, ArtNowSF, and Robotspeak.
Also featuring a second room with interactive demos from custom AKAI MPC rebuild wizards, 16squarez.com. The Sacramento based MPC shop has been cranking out custom built and styled MPCs for Araab Music, The Flying Skulls, edison, and many other innovators.
