oOoOO, Solar Year, Silent Drape Runners, White Ring (DJ Set)
Holy Tolito, Batman! We are really excited to have oOoOO, a project created by Chris Dexter come to Glasslands. Listening to his chill but eery beats can really put you in a otherworldly trance. Come get #spooky with us!
oOoOO (Chris Dexter) is a producer from Newark, New Jersey living in San Francisco. His tunes blend elements of mainstream pop, italo disco, southern rap, the Eastern European mystical traditions, and often feature female vocalists. Dexter's earliest years were spent listening to music and looking out the window of his Russian grandmother's Brooklyn tarot and palm reading parlor. Though he did not learn to read or write in English until he was 10, Dexter was reading sheet music and playing the piano from about age 6. The Wire's David Keenan has said oOoOO's sound feels like an amalgam of Steven Stapleton and DJ Screw, "albeit with a taste for Top 40 effluvia." He released his first EP on Tri Angle Records in October 2010. In addition to his original tunes, oOoOO has produced numerous remixes, including official tracks for The Big Pink, HIM, Salem, and Marina and the Diamonds, as well as unofficial versions of Lady Gaga and Nadia Oh tunes.
