KENNETH SCOTT - extended disco set after opening the main room
Beaner is a master at losing mobile phones and staying awake for long periods of time without the aid of stimulants. He enjoys masturbation, difficulty, overcoming odds, and tear-jerking finales. Together with C.L.A.W.S. he is WarVsSleep and is one third of supergroup the 3 Good Doctors with Agaric and Ed Davenport.
Born Pablo Roman-Alcalá in San Francisco at the very beginning of 1980, Beaner easily found music. A mother who even now is playing in live bands, and a multi instrumentalist father encouraged him early with trumpet and afro-cuban percussion lessons and a constant input of music at home led to an early start in noise/art/punk bands and strange musical projects of all kinds.
At 17 he started djing birthday parties, illegal basement parties pretending to be legitimate bars, and punk rock dance parties. After quitting for four years, he restarted in 2002 taking it seriously enough to decide to move to Berlin in 2004. Since 2004 Beaner has been played in Germany, Austria, Sweden, England, Scotland, Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, and the US. He"s held a residency at Eric D. Clark"s now defunct Manyc Monday party along with playing regularly at Berlin clubs such as Arena and Watergate. For 3 years he also ran monthly 24 hour after-hour Im Fruehtau with partner Sam Ear where he played alongside artists such as Agaric, Jeremy P. Caulfield, Chica Paula, Audio Werner, Monkey Maffia (Wighnomy Bros), Miss Fitz, GummiHz, Denis Karimani aka Remute, Mark Henning, Ed Davenport, Shaun Reeves & Seth Troxler. His mixture of low slung thug house, afterhour confusion, and peak time percussion, makes of Beaner´s sound a special experience.
Currently he holds a residency at the infamous Bar25 as well as releasing music on the label with project War Vs Sleep and soon also solo. 2010 will bring solo releases on Butane/Someone Else's new label Little Helpers, New York Label Thema, Agaric's We Are label, as well as War Vs Sleep's long awaited release on Radio Slave's Rekids imprint.
Oh honey, please dont give your heart to a world system based on exploitation of the luckless, give your heart to us.
Clint Stewart Bio:
In just a short time, Clint Stewart has carved out a reputation as a rising musical talent gaining accolades with a growing catalogue of charismatic productions and diverse DJ sets. Since a breakout set at San Francisco’s Lovefest in 2007 acclaim has been mounting worldwide for Clint as a DJ, producer and as part of an elite group of core artists holding a residency at one of the most desired destinations in the States, 222 Hyde.
Clint’s captivating DJ sets can go from deep and moody to heavy and twisted. While consistently maintaining a foundation in dynamics and range, the music always celebrates the diversity of people, music and environment encountered. His reputation has placed him at the world-renowned ÒDance Under the Blue MoonÓ radio show with Anja Schneider as well as acclaimed Berlin clubs including Tresor, Arena Club, Bar 25, and Watergate – where he closed the night by rocking into the afternoon with an 8 hour set at the opening party for the 2010 Love Parade.
Clint’s productions speak of a similar style and range. His solo work as well as Safeword, a recent project with production partner Marc Smith, immerses you in an extensive palette of sounds. With Safeword’s engaging live set, a current release on Paso Music that is getting widespread play from DJ’s worldwide and upcoming releases on Berlin giant Poker Flat all signs point to exciting things to come for the duo. Solo remixes on Mexican label Pantamuzik, Belgium imprint Sirius Pandi, and collaborations with Alland Byallo on Amam and a debut solo ep on Byallo’s forthcoming label Bad Animal all suggest a dynamic artist with an ear to the future.
Kenneth Scott Bio:
Raised in rural Iowa, Kenneth Scott nursed an obsession with dance music while exploring his hometown's tiny scene. Like many an auspicious beginning, his earliest DJ gigs were house parties with a cobbled together set-up consisting of his father's old turntable, a portable CD player, and a Radio Shack mixer. Something must have clicked for him because over time he trained himself as a multi-instrumentalist and started taking his musical cues from early WARP Records releases, Matthew Dear's acid experimentation as Audion, and minimal-minded composers like Philip Glass and Arvo Part. Scott has since relocated to San Francisco to continue the honing of his skills as a successful promoter, DJ, and producer. His clever use of techy snares, reptilian synths, and subtle layers of melody has helped to define him as one of the city’s brightest stars. His list of accomplishments are many but some highlights include running the successful Binary parties and DJ'ing alongside a list of international standouts such as Pan Pot, Martin Landsky, and Touane. He's also managed to create an indelible string of releases with collaborators like Emilio Orlandi (Moniker), Jason Short (Eutactic), [KONTROL]'s Alland Byallo, as well as his own solo material.
Kenneth Scott's music has been described as an active resurrection of the melodies surrendered in the great minimal techno takeover. One reason for this is his preference for actual songs; ones with the basic elements perpetually changing as they progress like a band. The results are unique, a sound rife with the shock and awe of a Murakami novel bathed in the scantest feelings of a yearning somewhere between joy and melancholia. "I'd like to think that in my music you could find all the different emotions that you find in a novel, the important thing for me is to avoid being overly didactic", says Scott of his production approach
Recently, things have been heating up for Scott. This includes a recent pair of EPs for Auralism-one under the Eutactic banner with Coalition of the Killing and now an upcoming September release entitled "What Do I Do?" The new single features inspired remixes by Dave Aju, Rift, and Jason Short in addition to the two originals. Rift has tapped him for a remix of his forthcoming new single "The Albatross" in addition to a rework due out later this fall of fellow Auralism artist Dead Seal’s "Dolgama". And if that wasn't enough, there will be a single under the Moniker alias due out at the end of the year on Rift’s Vellum Recordings, too.
There is definitely more to come from this hardworking producer as he carves new intersections into rhythm and melody, busily discovering new and uncharted musical turf. It’s this mindless form of musical evolution that not only propels his definition of house but also allows him and his music to continue developing, a stark contrast and humbling reminder of those innocent Radio Shack mixer beginnings for Kenneth Scott.
