Bap To The Future
Having shared a split 10" in All City's ace LA series, with none other than Carlos Nino and released one of the years best 12"s in The Xpander EP on his own Gifted and Blessed label,we're pleased to have Gabriel Reyes Whittaker aka GB play for us in the Bierhaus. This cat makes all sorts of dope tunes from spaced out electro to dusty house and therepeutic mood music, all done on a veritable mad professor's array of analog gear, which he should have a portion of in tow when he hits Galway town.
Here's a free-to-download ep of GB re-interpreting tunes by some of the hottest beatmakers in the biz, including Flying Lotus, Little Dragon and All City's own Musinah.

We've also got Americophile, vinyl-bothering blogsuperstar Kenny Hanlon. He's promised to bring a bag of lo-fi house which should be dope.
