Javelin, Entresol, DJ Laura, Benton, Mr. Pauer.
Javelin consists of two cousins, Tom Van Buskirk and George Langford. They started making music together in Providence, RI in 2004, although their earliest collaborative tapes date back to a bunk bedroom near the sea shore. The duo currently live in the booming metropolis of New York.
In performance, Javelin use colorfully painted boomboxes that form large speaker totems (“boombaatas”) which can hang from the ceiling or stack up on the floor like pyramids. The signal from the show is broadcast via FM transmitter, thereby fostering audience participation (B.Y.O.Boombox) or fueling battery-powered, mobile parties. The duo has played venues as diverse as the children’s branch of the Olneyville Public Library (RI), to the Museum of Modern Art (NY), both of which happened in the same week.
When not performing, Javelin is busy producing. Together they have amassed a vast catalogue of music, varying in its aesthetic range. Songs resemble the record collection from whence they spring, if not literally as when sampling, then figuratively as when past forms are cited and re-contextualized. Sounds range from broken dance jams to relaxed instrumental cut-ups, created with love on their MPCs. Long forgotten samples are chopped and re-assembled with drums, wooden recorders, old keyboards, handmade thumb pianos or whatever instruments are readily at hand. The result is a kind of mix tape fantasy (residing in the mythical “dollar bins of the future”), where R&B impresarios, amateur booty bass producers and Andean flautists hold equal sway.
Entresol is Eduardo Rivadeneira a one-man disco dance-off project from Miami, FL. Experienced in a variety of instruments, he has managed to present electronic music in its essence, live, with enough analog/digital instruments carefully routed together to present dance music like it hasnt been done before; a wall of pure sonic force. With his array of drum machines, synthesizers, and midi routing, Entresol delivers an audio experience that covers everything from pop dance anthems to laid back bass/synth grooves. Influenced by the golden years of underground disco and classic electronic experimentation, Entresol offers a contemporary breath of fresh air into his collection of vintage devices. Come, experience a new electric feel, This is Entresol.
