At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want. The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls. Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way. As the unity of the modern world becomes increasingly a technological and social affair, the techniques of the arts provide the most valuable means of insight into the real direction of our own collective purposes.



Please join us SATURDAY, APRIL 13TH at THE OTTOBAR for RESURGENCE, a refreshing return to our multimedia roots!

MUSIC BY:



▼ PHUTUREPRIMITIVE

http://www.phutureprimitive.com/



Phutureprimitive is the moniker of Northwest producer and song writer Rain. Early childhood photos reveal Rain sitting at the piano plinking keys, grinning from ear to ear…..a true sign of things to come. Continuing his early fascination with music, Rain was later drawn to electronic music, inspired by its ability to combine the best of organically played instruments and the synthetic pleasures of sounds more exotic to the human ear. After beginning a DJ career in the 90s, Rain began incorporating the music he was making in his home studio into his DJ sets. That was all it took to trigger a full blown love affair with electronic music and the process of its creation…..and Phutureprimitive was born. Phutureprimitive music is singular and unique in its approach: Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, his music also manages to convey a sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating toward a full kinetic experience. Conceived and produced in a digital environment, his music manages to convey more humanity and organic warmth then typically found in an often cold and sterile genre. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, his music ultimately speaks to both the mind and the body.



▼ ILL-ESHA

Hailing from Vancouver, BC (and inspired deeply by two years in San Francisco before recently moving to Denver, Colorado), ill-esha burst onto the North American electronic scene originally as a drum & bass vocalist featured on various releases for the likes of Breakbeat Science, Fokuz, and BluSaphir, gradually becoming known for the seamless incorporation of original vocals and MCing into her DJ sets. Her multi-dimensional approach spans every color in the bass music rainbow, creating a dynamic live show which has set ill-esha apart amidst some of electronic music’s most groundbreaking acts – her current live show features mostly original music chopped, screwed and beatmatched with live vocal effects and loops over top. With releases on trendsetting labels such as Muti Music, Daly City, Street Ritual, Subway, Haunted Audio, Dub Police and Simplify, ill-esha has ranked in the top 3 on Junodownload, Addictech, Beatport Electronic and Soundcloud. Since the release of her first 12” single in her teens, ill-esha has been honing her skills as vocalist, DJ and producer who delivers studio efforts and live shows setting the stage for the future of electronic music. Her recent alliance with the Critical Beats project – a pioneering effort by artists to assist indigenous tribes in developing media centres for communication and culture preservation – is a resounding step forward on the path of an artist dedicated to creating social change and awareness through music.

Focused on unifying electronic music through diverse influence, the Aligning Minds sound fuses elements of many genres like downtempo, breakbeat, idm/glitch, techno, and dubstep but without the need for formulaic restrictions. In 2004 Michael Folk and Daniel ‘Vibeage’ formed the electronic music project Aligning Minds as an outlet for their musical expressions. Over the past 8 years they've worked together to develop a unique and signature sound. Through the mastery of studio skills and live improvisation, they've solidified an encompassing and signature style. Reaching audiences worldwide, and marked with an undeniable sense of originality, the Aligning Minds sound breaks through the barriers of rigid genre classification.
