Description

PopGun is proud to present sets from Lauren Ritter & Maria Chavez for a summer's night of dancing at the House of Yes. Entry is free with RSVP, so please join us in welcoming these excelent DJs. Lauren Ritter is very accomplished behind the decks, and her effortless style has been in demand around the country and world. A classically trained violinist and viola player, Lauren always expressed a strong interest in electronic music. Early experiments in MAX/MSP paved the way for her production career, and she went on to spend countless hours in the studio, experimenting with analog gear. Lauren taught herself how to produce and mix records and then embarked on a one-year-sabbatical in Berlin to soak up the music scene. Returning to New York with fresh knowledge and experience, Lauren embarked on an active involvement with the ReSolute collective. She now is a member of Brooklyn's underground, organizing events with ReSolute, playing coveted slots at festivals and clubs, and releasing her music on labels like All Day I Dream.

A unique and multifaceted talent, Maria Chavez is a sound artist and DJ who was born in Lima, Peru. As a DJ she is responsible for laying down diverse sets at parties, festivals, clubs and radio shows all around the world. For her experimental turntablism, Chavez uses new and broken needles on a collection of vinyl she uses to build a sound palette. Chavez's compositions are created for specific locations, and their acoustic characteristics allow for the ambiguity of reverberation, reflection, and refraction to enter into each composition. Her live turntable performances focus on the values of the accident and its unique, complicated possibilities with sound emitting machinery like the turntable.

These two artist's DJ styles are perfectly suited for a warm summer evening and we are looking forward to what they have in store for us this July.
