FELIX CARTAL (popular music tour • dim mak • vancouver)
CHRISTIAN MARTIN (dirtybird • trapez)
Lights Down Low is back for April with two headliner's FELIX CARTAL and CHRITAIN MARTIN. Both of these artists' exemplify what we love about music at LDL, Felix represents the new breed of industry players. Owing his success almost entirely to word-of-mouth and blog-endorsements, he is representative of the grassroots music movement that has been created due to the Internet, and has catapulted this bedroom producer to one of the hottest electro producers/remixers on the planet. Christian Martin is one of the founder's of what is arguably one of the most influential electronic music label's on the planet DIRTYBIRD. He has helped to redefine house music into a hybrid of electro and hip-hop with world music influences. He helped to redefine genre lines in music and raise the bar for the rest of the electronic world.
Felix Cartal's first ever show in the US was with us at Lights Down Low 2 1/2 years ago at the 222. Since then he has been toured alongside the likes of MSTRKRFT, the Bloody Beetroots, and LA Riots. And, his music has become a staple in the sets of artists such as Felix Da Housecat, Benny Benassi, Steve Aoki, and many others. We are proud to welcome our dear friend Felix back to Lights Down Low for the the release party of his new album "popular music" which has just come out on Dim Mak records.
Christian Martin's love affair with electronic music began in 1995, as an early attendee at Southern California’s now legendary Moontribe full moon desert parties. After absorbing late 90’s club life in New York, London, and Los Angeles, Christian settled in San Francisco in the spring of 2000. He started playing records in 2002 under the tutelage of his brother, Justin Martin, armed with a stack of Justin’s old vinyl and used Technics 1200’s from Sammy D. In 2003, inspired by the massive desert soundsystems of old, Christian founded the dirtybird soundsystem. Along with co-founders Justin Martin, Worthy, and Claude VonStroke, dirtybird’s Sunday afternoon BBQ’s have quickly become a Golden Gate Park institution.
