Unfortunately Chateau Flight weren't able to land stateside this morning due to visa complications:'(
Stepping in to fill the void is the local master of sneaky rhythms Joey Anderson. His releases on Strength Music and his own label Inimeg have caught our attention with a sound that is unlike anything else; his DJ sets proved him adept at weaving through complex rhythms and mysterious ambiances. We've been looking forward to having Joey play a set for us and now is the chance.
To complete this night of unpredictable brilliance we have enlisted the finest purveyor of rare groove - DJ Kon of the famed Kon & Amir duo. Starting with a chance meeting at Boston's Biscuithead Records the two have entered into an alliance that sent them on a crate-digging quest to unearth and sometimes edit the lost gems of funk, soul, jazz, reggae and hip-hop. Their deep knowledge of music and skill behind the turntables soon cought attention of seasoned heads both stateside and overseas, finally landing them the honor of compiling "The Kings of Digging" compilation on K7!'s sub-label Rapster. To give you the scope other entries in the "King of.." series were compiled by Laurent Garnier, Carl Craig, Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, MAW, etc. In addition to that Kon & Amir have lent their expertise to such entities as Dr. Dre, Diamond D, Pete Rock and Wax Poetics. Kon told us that for the Sound Noir night he will venture into a new direction and give us a taste of his own unique style - we are getting ready to get schooled.
And the beat goes on...
