Billy Dalessandro (live), Noah Pred, Talal & Zoi, Redxdown (live)
Continuing our global pursuit of fresh sounds with total disregard for national boundaries, the latest EP on Thoughtless comes from emerging Mexico City talent, Haze. The EP features remixes from local protege Zaid Edghaim, San Francisco's Auralism founder Jason Short, and Chicago acid house maestro Billy Dalessandro – whose original, 'Zoe', was included in the latest edition of Thoughtless Times.
For the past decade, Dalessandro has been amalgamating the classic Chicago sound with its European counterparts. His fluid grooves and complex harmonic structures have found homes on labels both foreign and domestic, including Siteholder Records (of which he is a co-owner), Force Inc., Forcetracks, Resopal, Alphahouse and many others. Billy's stellar reputation as a live performer has led him to play at such world renowned clubs as Lux (Lisbon), Panorama Bar (Berlin), D-Edge (Sao Paolo), Harry Klein (Munich), Sugar Factory (Amsterdam), Weekend (Berlin), Nitsa (Barcelona), The Egg (London), Stucture (Stockholm), Avalon (L.A.) and The End Up (San Francisco). Celebrating the release, Billy Dalessandro will perform his first ever live set in Toronto for Get Thoughtless.
Opening the night is captivating performer and Thoughtless producer Redxdown, whose unique sound – featuring live guitar and vocals – falls somewhere between Loco Dice and U2. Rounding out the bill are Talal & Zoi, a Toronto DJ and production duo making waves worldwide with releases on Dirtybird, Thoughtless, BEEF and beyond. Finally, label boss Noah Pred is set to close out on the decks.
