About the artists:
✿ Titonton Duvante (Residual Recordings, Yay, Midwest Fresh) - OHIO ✿
With a musical history and catalogue that spans back to the early 90′s, Titonton Duvante is one of those true school artists whose talent has continually shone through with a certain style and finesse that few come close to, let alone equal. Straddling the line between the outer reaches of Motorcity sounds and the sheer force of his own musical imagination, his sound very much lives in its own sphere: having cut his teeth with releases on Metamorphic, 7th City, Palette, Environ, Planet E along with his own imprint Residual Recordings. As a DJ, he has always been known for blurring the boundaries of electronic music genres as he seeks to deconstruct, blend and rebuild beats through what can only be described as a unique brand of turntablism - having exported his extraordinary style and energy to clubs around the world. Titonton has been releasing vinyl for over two decades, for which RA has praised as "an effortless lesson in the funky possibilities of techno." Mr. Duvante will play a 1 hour live PA & 2+ hour DJ set for us this first of December.
✿ Chavez (Nil) - NYC ✿
Placing emphasis on quality first, Chavez has helped curate the Brooklyn based imprint, Nil, into a respected output for electronic music. Aside from label duties, he has made his rounds throughout New York's city vibrant underground scene. Making appearances on Boiler Room and venues that include Club Der Visionaere, Cielo, Output, Sankeys to private warehouses; playing alongside and opening for DJs like Petre Inspirescu, The Martinez Brothers, Dan Ghenacia, Willie Graff, Anthony Collins, and Anthony Parasole to name a few; the self proclaimed vinyl junkie has helped solidify himself as a purveyor for keeping the bar high when it comes to electronic music. It is this same drive towards quality that has helped Chavez carefully select and manipulate records from all eras of dance music to create one cohesive statement. Looking to blur the lines of genre, Chavez carefree energy has helped propel him to become one of NYC's respected selectors.
