Friday, November 16th @ National Underground | 10pm-LATE
NOSI Music is excited to bring you its next installment of our NO REQUESTS record label showcase. Join us as we welcome label boss XPANSUL (Plus 8, Trapez, Perc) along with the riveting live electronic act LOUD NEIGHBOR from the Madrid-based record label TRUE TYPE TRACKS!
We have had the great fortune of hearing and playing next to both of these acts at the annual SUNJAM festival in Honduras, and we can say without equivocation that these guys are going to blow you away! Just check out the videos below.
For those of you that know, XPANSUL needs little introduction. Long-time resident at Madrid's famous CASSETTE CLUB, XPANSUL has made a major name for himself in the European techno scene. Following his successes in the EU, he moved to Utila, Honduras and is now a major contributor to the SUNJAM music festival held there each August.
The amazing husband and wife duo behind LOUD NEIGHBOR have been a fixture in the Madrid underground for several years. Their widely popular, and quirky, interview program LOVING THE ALIEN produced under their moniker WORT34M, has brought them into the orbit of Europe's techno luminaries. Now based in the US, they're new surrounding will fuel the inspiration to finish their first full length album due out this winter.
Representing the best and the brightest of what's to come on NOSI Music, we've invited two of NYC's most talented young artists: DUCKHUNTER and CRAFT. The two will be playing a 3-hr back-2-back set of originals and remixes of their own productions for NOSI Music, Subtraks, Uberkontrol, and more. NO REQUESTS residents GIL K & HRISTO round out the lineup early and late with their distinctive musical flair.
If you love and support techno music in NYC, this night is not to be missed!

XPANSUL (True Type, Plus 8, Trapez, Perc Trax; MADRID)
Santiago Ferrer, also known as Xpansul, started djing in 1993. Since then, he has played in most of the biggest clubs and festivals all over Spain and Europe.
Xpansul’s sound as a dj is techno, his sets are a journey through electronic dance music, in which the “axis” Detroit-Chicago-Berlin-Cologne is the driver and all his other musical influences are the passengers.
Since 1998, Santi starts writing and producing music as well, getting a really good response from the crowd and critics to his first releases on labels such as Audiodrome, Options, Isoghi, Syl.Label or Soundplant, sometimes working solo and sometimes with his partner Daweed.
In 2003 Xpansul starts his own labels Discos De Lata and MSX manged along Daweed and Miguel Mendoza respectively, which has taken him to a solid position as a producer and label manager on an international level, thanks to the success achieved by his releases on this labels and other releases on Software Records, Sindicato Records and Random Dynamics.
And it was back then when Xpansul met well respected producer Alexi Delano and they started a series of collaborations, both original tracks and remixes, that have been put out on labels such as Plus 8, Truesoul, Frankie Recs Trapez and Leftroom, taking Xpansul one step ahead in his already promising career.
From then on Xpansul’s calendar becomes, more than busy, hectic, showing his dj skills all over the world and receiving a great, warm welcome everywhere he’s gone. All this, added to his releases on Ovum, Soma Quality Recordings, Ad Ltd., Minuendo, Synewave, or his own Discos De Lata confirmed Xpansul as a true solid value in the electronic dance music scene worldwide.
In 2009 Xpansul opens new label, True Type Tracks, along Daweed, and starts performing live sets in order to open himself to a new path of musical expression, a way to keep growing as a musician, establishing himself as an artist that is here to stay.
That same year, Xpansul joins W0RKT34M, a multimedia project, focusing on producing the duo Loud Neighbor and collaborating on the Loving The Alien interview TV show.
Now, from his new residency in the island of Utila, Honduras, Xpansul keeps delivering quality releases and remixes all over the Globe, on labels like H-Prod, Sleaze Records, Illegal Alien, Cuatro, Monza Ibiza, Analytic Trail, Weave... And in 2012 starts True Type Radio, a way to connect with fans all over the World and spread the electronic culture.
LOUD NEIGHBOR (True Type Tracks, Loving the Alien; MADRID)
Loud Neighbor is a live techno projected created by STEEL5000 (USA) and Martín García Blaya (ARG). In 2005 STEEL5000 travels to Madrid to study abroad for a year at the Fine Arts College in the University Complutense. Soon after her arrival she met Martín on the dancefloor in Madrid's legendary club, Coppelia 101. Martín had arrived to Spain from Buenos Aires 3 years before, working as a sound engineer in film and television. Together they begin to realize various video projects under the name W0RKT34M. In 2006, along with the guitarist Juan Proverbio they form a techno-punk group, Isabel La Alcoholica. In 2007 STEEL5000 graduates from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago and wins the Gelman Travel Fellowship. Hence in 2008 the couple moves to Argentina. Shortly after settling into their new home, they give birth to Loud Neighbor, a project conceived as a self portrait in a neighborhood that was not ready for the noisy couple. During this time they debut their live show in illegal parties and underground clubs in Buenos Aires, connecting well with the crowd and local artists. In the beginning of 2009 they get married and return to Spain. Back in Madrid they begin to record their first tracks under the wing of the Madrileño DJ and producer, Santi Xpansul, while showcasing their sound throughout Europe. In September 2010 they launch Loving The Alien, an electronic music interview series hosted by STEEL5000. The independent program grows worldwide, receiving a grand recognition from both the people and the industry. In October 2010, they begin to release their music on True Type Tracks under the series W0RKT34M (TTWT) with the support of producers such as Joseph Capriati, Remute, Marcos In Dub, Tadeo and Alexander Kowalski. In 2011 Loud Neighbor returns to the Americas, playing throughout Argentina, Honduras, Guatemala and The United States. Today Loud Neighbor continues to bother their neighbor while working on their new EP, The Fellonship, which will have a remix by the classic Detroit duo, Octave One, and be the first reference of W0RKT34M as an independent label.
