Dearst Freqs & Friends,
We hope you're all simply fantabulous.
After the cancelation of our last London event, the 3rd of November cannot come around quickly enough when we once again return home to Paramount, Centre Point, 103 New Oxford Street, London, WC1A 1DD with all of the problems that caused us to cancel our last event being ironed out due to the diligence of those wonderful people at Paramount.
So, it is with great pleasure that Superfreq announces yet another Superfreq debut & this time we get to welcome to you the amazing Troy Pierce of Items & Things.
Growing up in Indiana, right by the electronic hotspots of Detroit and Chicago, it’s no wonder Troy Pierce was infected with the dance music bug early on. Since then, he’s developed into a pillar of the modern techno community thanks to world tours, live shows, albums and EPs under a number of aliases and as part of more than one studio collective.
The Troy Pierce sound is one which has constantly veered from dense, layered and abstract to stripped down, acid infused and pulsing. His sonic palette is one that draws on a wide array of influences and reaches far outside the confines of the studio and into an otherworld entirely. Fusing techno with minimalism, darkness with light and heaviness with rhythm, this American has never been afraid to experiment in the outer regions of his vast musical universe.
“I like making and playing weird music for weird people - those WTF tracks that stick in your head as a sound from another dimension” says the man whose close association to techno bastion Minus has earned him a deserved and revered reputation during the years since first emerging. Looking ahead though, it will be for his own label, Items & Things (co-run with friends Magda and Marc Houle) that he is most known.
Whilst the rejuvenated label will aim to break new talent and continue its run of underground and intimate Down & Out parties, Troy will also work on his own music: in collaborative effort with his new label mates, on a solo EP on I&T, but also some fresh material from his much-lauded Louderbach alias.
Despite an already impressive list of accolades to his name, Troy Pierce isn’t one to sit still. Keen as ever to confound your expectations, Items & Things, new Louderbach music and a number of exciting collaborations are sure to do just that as he enters the next phase of his musical evolution.
Secondly Superfreq welcome back our first lady who needs no introduction, Xo Chic from Dollz At Play.
Magda's new favourite DJ, Xo will be jetting to us from Frankfurt where she plays the previous night with Magda at Robert Johnson. Xo has just finished her first solo tune which will be released in early 2012 on Superfreq records. It's a track that sums our gorgeous fashionista up perfectly & will certainly bring a smile to your face when you hear it.
Xo has also been busy promoting & running the monthly Super Disco Freq events in Los Angeles & spinning & promoting for Superfreq on the West Coast of America & she's also been very bust spinning in Mexico, all of which she does when not working in the world of fashion, styling, selling & now even buying at fashion week events. For sure Xo will tear the roof off of the place & as usual will inject a serious amount of glamour to the Superfreq proceedings.
Of course these 2 stars will join our very own stars Mr.C & Luke vB who will have just turned A.D.E on with more unreleased Superfreq music than Amsterdam could possibly have bargained for & yes, you'll hear all of our new label music being showcased in London.
We can't wait to see you all on the 3rd of November where we'll have the best views of Guy Fawkes night celebrations taking place around our fair city.
Until then, we send you hugs.
