The Gaslamp Killer
Alpha Pup NYC is proud to present a new monthly all-ages gathering at Knitting Factory Brooklyn the last Saturday of the month, beginning May 28 with a stellar lineup featuring The Gaslamp Killer, Matthewdavid and Daddy Kev.
Alpha Pup Records is a boutique label and digital distributor based in Los Angeles that represents over 40 of the world’s top independent labels including Westbound Records and Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder. An extension of the Low End Theory movement, Alpha Pup NYC will be a showcase of artists from the forward-thinking label as well as innovative producers who are pushing new sounds to the forefront of hip hop and electronic music.
The late-night event launches Saturday, May 28 with Low End Theory’s resident manimal and showman extraordinaire The Gaslamp Killer, who takes a break on his busy-world touring schedule to set Brooklyn on fire with his manic musical selection. Leaving Records’ label head Matthewdavid will also perform; known for his extensive cassette collection, this far-out producer has received massive critical acclaim for his latest album Outmind, released earlier this year on Brainfeeder. They will be joined by legendary producer and Alpha Pup founder Daddy Kev, who is also the mastermind behind the worldwide club night phenomenon Low End Theory.
