Saturday, May 21, 2011: Arthur Oskan CD Release Party!
Get Thoughtless with…
KATE SIMKO live A/V
ARTHUR OSKAN live
One of Toronto’s most respected underground producers and live acts, Arthur Oskan’s deep and lush yet essential techno sound is a direct evolution of his love for Detroit and many cold winters spent locked in his studio. Performing live with analog gear for over a decade, his exhilarating sets are a revelatory fusion of sizzling machine grooves and evocative synthetic melodies. Totaling ten tracks, Oskan’s debut full-length, A Little More Than Everything, is a distinctive distillation of his uniquely refined take on soulful analog techno – and we’re proud to celebrate it’s release on Thoughtless with a special live set from Arthur himself at the Drake Underground. Also performing is Chicago-based artist Kate Simko, presenting her debut live set in Toronto. Renowned for her sumptuous take on minimal techno and house, her DJ sets have taken her throughout Europe and the Americas – with releases on Spectral, Ghostly, and Eklo cementing her status on the global scene. Her remix of Evan Marc for Thoughtless is one our best-selling titles to date, and her new album for Berlin’s Hello? Repeat imprint, Lights Out, is the cause for her latest tour – which she’ll be bringing to the Underground along with a full A/V performance sure to make this a memorable night. Up-and-coming Thoughtless DJ and remixer Zaid Edghaim will be opening the night with his well-honed minimal house sound, while label boss Noah Pred closes out the affair with his latest favourites on the decks…
