Pearson Sound joins his fellow Hessle Audio honchos at New York City's Output.
London’s Hessle Audio has put out just more than 20 releases in its six years of existence, but it’s one of the labels that defines the boundary-shifting postdubstep sound of today: a sound based in house, garage and, yes, dubstep—but also one that doesn’t fit neatly into any single category. David “Pearson Sound” Kennedy, along with Ben UFO and Pangaea, are the men behind the influential label, and for the first time in NYC, the three will be spinning together when they hit the decks at Output on Thursday, April18.
Time Out New York: Are there certain tracks that you might play over a system like that—songs that you might not over a lesser system?
Pearson Sound: Absolutely—for example, my own tracks. A lot of the time, I might not play anything of mine, mainly because I’m so anal about how it’s going to sound.
