Hello, all you space cadets, out there! "space is the place, space is the place", SPACETIME is the place, 2 be.
It is SPACETIME, to far out, chill out, cop out, freak out, pop out, look out, rock out, all you beautiful earthlings and aliens from all corners of the galaxy.
After the very happenin', serious, out there, mind altering, chilled out proper "party" (you know what I mean, if u were dere...)@liquid loft, to celebrate their 20th anniversary last June, SPACETIME is back! And with a more mindblowing, stellar line-up!!!! & another!!! (chick chick, chicki-out!), once again, to take us all, to where no univeral being, has ever been ever before. Expect the unexpected, take a rollercoaster SPACETIME trip, on a neverending, chill out, far out, musical, healing journey, with SPACETIME.
This SPACETIME has, for the 1st time in ages, the 3 original members of the original incarnation. Mixmaster Morris, Spacetime Continuum's Jonah Sharp (back to these shores, for the 1st time in 4 years...has it been that long?) & SPACETIME's Richard Sharp who started, the now legendary THE BEGINNING THAT NEVER ENDS, SPACETIME parties, in London, back in the late 80s~early 90s! Now, in the 21st century schizoid man period, in Tokyo, continues their tour de force, in the court of crimson king, the musical chillout magicians of Tokyo, London, San Francisco, and for the very first time, New York, will cast a mystic spell with mesmerising effect. The on-going, progressive, underground history, past, present & future, of proper muzak and arts from these international urban hubs, Sheffield (think electro, new wave, warp, er, joe cocker, heavy metal? er, maybe not), London (smiley faces, rave, no, not nu rave, dude, acid, the orb, Old St. warehouse parties, & the template of all templates of club music that exists today, etc), New York (The Loft, Knitting Factory, infamous Brooklyn Williamsburg scene, Lalalandia parties, Phonemena Audio Arts & Multipies, etc.), San Francisco (reflective, techno, height ashbury, da dead, hippies, flower child, 60s psychedelia, etc.), Tokyo (YMO, analog synths, technics decks, 808, & us lot) and all of its true eternal spirit, will be manically mashed up & chilled out atcha, @ of all places, Tokyo 2008 in the laziest daze, golden week! So, count your days, hours, seconds, for the big bang, to happen, once again, SPACETIME!
The celestial star-studded rhinestone line-up features, SPACETIME Tokyo's very own, Me-sheen who reved it up, with his live performance @liquid loft last summer, performing some of his new tunes, from his upcoming new album & the analogue synth wiz, Hataken, playing his depth defining vintage synths with full effect, er, watch his finger wizardry on the screen! Also, representing Tokyo, is the ambient originator himself, Kay Nakayama, of chillscape, intelligent jazz, spinning some soothing chillout sounds.
To compliment Kay Nakayama, is his english cohort, not explanation necessary, Ninja Tune's very own, Irresistable Force, chillout meister himself, Mixmaster Morris, once again, coming down from planet X (er, well, London, actually), to hypnotize us, once again, with his magical chillout deejaying!!
And Morris' partner-in-crime for production and SPACETIME parties, Spacetime Continuum's Jonah Sharp is going to perform exclusively for this party! The king of ambience/ electronic music, Reflective Records' head, is back, for the 1st time in 4 years to these shores, ready to add the extra pusche, chi, light, energy, mastery into SPACETIME! Jonah is also working on the long awaited Irresistable Force album with Morris now and will be showcasing 2 songs from this album with Morris, so come check it out! Not to be missed for all chillout fans alike! Proper chillout is back, with the masters at the helm, once again, to show how it is really like!
And u think, this line-up, up until now, is headspinnin', well, SPACETIME is gonna take it 2 another coupla extra dimensional levels with da New York crew of DJ Olive (aka Audio Janitor, the Agriculture) and the live performance of Smile Dancer Orchestra, featuring DJ Olive (laptop,turntable), Beansan aka Toshio Kajiwara (guitar), BUN666(guitar), YOSHIO KUGE (Flying Rhythms) (drums), SHUCHO (percussion)!!!!!!!! I kid you not, Smile Dancer Orchestra is like the bastard son of Sun Ra's mad cap Arkestra, getting dropped at, of all places, SPACETIME!! This supa group, with a very strange name and vibe, with this stellar line-up, needs no explanin', really, Brooklyn, Knitting Factory, etc. was burnin' with the audio madness, big time!
The forces that be, the stars aligned, to make this impossibility, totally possible, with SPACETIME's Richard Sharpe hooking up with Smile Dancer Orchestra's BUN666 in Tokyo 2008. This early 21st century defining SPACETIME party will no doubt be, a party to neverend all parties, a bedtime story for all future sonic generations alike, so be there or be rectangular, horizontal, vertical, or just plain square, a party not to be missed since it is THE BEGINNING THAT NEVER ENDS... The byte goes on and on and on!
