GASLAMP KILLER

LA’s William Bensussen, aka The Gaslamp Killer, is many things at once. The San Diego native is a bonafide one-off; an artist and human being that can never be repeated. With an unparalleled energy, the DJ, producer, promoter and curator brings a different level of performance and showmanship to electronic music.

 

Over the last ten years, Gaslamp Killer’s iconoclastic attitude has led him beyond LA to far-reaching corners of the globe, one stage at a time: from Pitch in Amsterdam, to Sonar in Barcelona, to Austin Psych Fest, to Roskilde in Denmark, to Coachella. Holding a collection of well over 13,000 vinyl records, GLK’s untamed, unpredictable sets take traditional genres of rock into the outer reaches of hip-hop and the deep into the cosmic pressure of the heaviest electronic beats, with plenty of obscurity and bizarreness in-between.

 

The now rare, GLK collectables “I Spit On Your Grave” (Obey) and “All Killer” (Finders Keepers) inspired a new generation of DJs to appreciate the art of a mixtape. Dusted Magazine described his follow-up mix, “Hell And The Lake Of Fire Are Waiting For You” (self-released), with words that describe GLK as a DJ in general: “Trying to figure out what’s going on is half the draw.”

 

"The music that I grew up with influences me today enormously still. I love classic rock, I still love Dub and I still love Rap. Real rap. Gansta rap. I love bands, live bands, it's the music I grew up with. I don't think there are that many bands that can compare to Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Doors. They're not popular for no reason. I play The Beatles in my sets all the time still. Their music is a huge influence on me. I still play Dr Dre in my set all the time. His beats and the rhymes, the energy, they just affect me so much. They are a part of me. As well as Hip Hop, as well as Rock, and Blues, and Soul, and Jazz, and Reggae, and Dub. That kind of music I think lends to everything that we are all into today. All of us are fueled by that. The formulas that they laid and the foundations that they laid are used by musicians forever and will continue to be used forever.”

 

As a producer, The Gaslamp Killer has worked with artists such as Gonjasufi, Prefuse 73 and Flying Lotus. His own experimental solo material pushes the borders of genre as much as his performances, particularly with his heavy- weighted EP ‘My Troubled Mind’ (Brainfeeder) and the monster ‘Death Gate‘ EP (Brainfeeder), which featured Gonjasufi, Computer Jay and Mophono.

 

Forthcoming on Brainfeeder in September 2012, ‘Breakthrough’ will mark the debut full-length album from the Gaslamp Killer. Blending California-inspired psych with widespread global influences, on ‘Breakthrough’ GLK brings together a potent cast of friends to contribute to the album, with guest appearances from Gonjasufi, Adrian Younge, Dimlite, Daedelus, SAMIYAM and more. A musical anachronism and unconstrained compilation from a wandering spirit.

DJ SHADOW

DJ Shadow (born Josh Davis) is widely credited as a key figure in developing the experimental instrumental hip-hop style associated with the London-based Mo' Wax label. Inspired by hip-hop's early years, he then grew to absorb the heyday of crews like Eric B. & Rakim, Ultramagnetic MCs, and Public Enemy; groups which prominently featured DJs in their ranks.

 

Josh "Shadow" Davis had already been fiddling around with making beats and breaks on a four-track recorder while he was in high school in the NorCal cow-town of Davis, but it was during college that he co-founded his own Solesides label as an outlet for his original tracks. Hooking up with Davis' few b-boys (including eventual Solesides artists Blackalicious and Lyrics Born) through the college radio station, Shadow began releasing the Hip-Hop Reconstruction mix tapes in 1991 and pressed his 17-minute beat-head symphony "Entropy" in 1993. His tracks spread widely through the DJ-strong hip-hop underground, eventually catching the attention of Mo' Wax.

 

Shadow's first full-length, "Endtroducing...", was released in late 1996 to immense critical acclaim in Britain and America. "Preemptive Strike," a compilation of early singles, followed in early 1998. Later that year, Shadow produced tracks for the debut album by U.N.K.L.E., a long-time Mo' Wax production team that gained superstar guests including Thom Yorke (of Radiohead), Richard Ashcroft (of the Verve), Mike D (of the Beastie Boys), and others.

 

His next project came in 1999, with the transformation of Solesides into a new label, Quannum Projects. Nearly six years after his debut production album, the proper follow-up, "The Private Press," was released in June 2002. The following year Shadow released a mix album, "Diminishing Returns," and in 2004 he released a live album and DVD, "Live! In Tune and on Time." In 2006 he released another long awaited full-length album "The Outsider," which featured rising Bay Area Hyphy rappers including Keak Da Sneak and E-40. "The Outsider" also featured a single with Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest), which led to Shadow's first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

 

Between 2007 and 2009 Shadow released three volumes of "The 4-Track Era Collection," a series of his earliest recordings. The 4-Track Era project was exclusively available through his web store, ShopDjShadow.com. In the midst of all of these solo projects, DJ Shadow collaborated with fellow hip-hop DJ Cut Chemist. Together they created a series of mixes that fused soul, funk, and rock, in the framework of a cohesive concept involving using only 45 rpm records (7 inches). These mixes include Brainfreeze, Product Placement, and The Hard Sell, which would be debuted at the Hollywood Bowl.

 

Shadow's website relaunched in August 2009, enabling him to sell digital downloads direct to his fans through his own autonomous storefront. 2009 also saw the announcement of Shadow's involvement with DJ Hero, an Activision video game which features Shadow as a playable character within the game. Shadow also contributed several mixes to the game.

 

2010 and 2011 saw a tour throughout Europe and North America entitled "Live From The Shadowsphere."

 

In 2011, DJ Shadow released "The Less You Know, The Better," a much anticipated full-length studio album, which met massive acclaim. 2012 included Shadow's heralded "All Basses Covered" DJ set-tour, as well as "Total Breakdown, Hidden Transmissions From The MPC Era (1992-1996)," an archival project; and "Reconstructed: Best of DJ Shadow," a greatest hits album.

SALVA

The industry cliché says that artists should stick to one sub-genre or sound. After all, branding becomes simpler when something can be streamlined in 140 characters or BPMs. Plenty of producers are known for one signature tic, but the ones we remember are the musically curious, those constantly unlocking new doors. It’s in this complex design where you’ll find Salva, rocking the party in permanent possession of a creative skeleton key.

 

Let’s start with the new: Salva is a DJ on the BBC’s prestigious, “In New DJs We Trust” program. The leader of the Friends of Friends movement frequently throws down jump-off mixes that electrify the weekend airwaves on LA urban radio behemoth, Power 106. His most recent EP, Odd Furniture—released on Friends of Friends—found his production hailed by Pitchfork for a “virtuosity and restlessness…like few of his peers.” His previous full-length, 2011’s Complex Housing was declared by Fact to be “an excellent record…darting between ornate hip-hop, miniature pop and wide-legged funk.”

 

“I've experimented with every single sound I came across while coming up. I didn't know what I wanted because I loved everything,” Salva says. “I fell in love with sampling and synthesizer based music. I was always told not to be a jack-of-all trades and only focus on one sound. But I always knew that’s how I wanted to leave my mark—by making contradictory genres of music and conquering all these styles.

 

In 2012, Salva and RL Grime’s remix of Kanye West’s “Mercy” became dance music’s hottest anthem, racking up 1.7 million Soundcloud streams and dynamiting DJ sets from Diplo, A-Trak, Just Blaze, and Skream and Benga. It also inadvertently helped kickstart the trap trend. But trap was just another weapon for the polymath fluent in Baltimore club and boom-bap, boogie funk, drum and bass, and disco.

 

Raised in Chicago, the city’s house music tradition influenced him as much as juke and Twista. Subsequent moves to Milwaukee, Miami, and San Francisco each left their mark. You can hear the booty-shake of Miami bass in the way his beats induce dance floor mobs. In the Bay, he created the Frite Nite label, a movement at the vanguard of Cali-based funk and dance music—one that earned plaudits from British radio linchpins, Gilles Peterson and Benji B.

 

Salva has owned sit-down gallery shows and large festivals like Lollapalooza, HARD, Coachella, and Spain’s Sonar Festival. He’s played battered old bars, at the world-famous Do-Over, and before the bottle-service brigade at Drai’s Hollywood and XS in Las Vegas. As the LA Weekly said: “he’s not only one of the best producers and party-rocking DJs in LA…he’s one of the finest in bass music….one unmatched at blending rap and dance music.”

 

During an era when rap producers want to make dance music and vice-versa, Salva has been at this nexus for years. Over the last 12 months, the Red Bull Music Academy alumni has collaborated with Freddie Gibbs, Young Thug, Boys Noize Ty$, DJ Shadow, and Kurupt. After experimenting with every style under the sun, he’s poised to become one of the biggest forces in club and pop production. He’s no longer a man of many sounds. Those sounds have become synthesized as Salva.

 

“I gravitated to songs because I was mystified by a melody, an atmosphere, the timbre of the drum production or a rhythm,” says Salva. “No matter the style or the energy, if its minimal, funky, uplifting, hard, or musical, I just want to give people that same experience, and bring it out of the artists I work with. It’s all about that irresistible element that you just love, but don’t know why.
