RYAN ELLIOTT - Spectral Sound / Ghostly International [Detroit]
June 16th @ The Buzz Bar
Spectral Sound is excited to announce the latest installment of its 2007 residencies across North American clubs. DEATH IS NOTHING TO FEAR: Spectral Residencies Part Three will feature Ryan Elliott playing select major cities, hitting both coasts and the midwest. These bi-monthly events are designed to promote the artist compilation series of the same name, and have previously featured Spectral artists Audion and Bodycode. This time around Ryan Elliott will bring his turntable mastery to the dancefloors, enticing ears and inciting bodies like no other DJ.
Elliott - a walking dictionary of artists, labels, and releases – began his DJ career with a weekly residency in Ann Arbor, MI alongside Matthew Dear, and soon after established a monthly gig at Detroit's now defunct Oslo. His increasing notoriety led to international touring, with stops at London's legendary Fabric as well as the 2006 Sónar Festival in Barcelona. Further accomplishments include a stellar 33-track mix for the Spectral Sound Vol. 1 2xCD compilation, a slot at #5 in Resident Advisor's Top 10 DJs of 2006 (placed between Sasha and M.A.N.D.Y), and a nod from URB as one of the top 10 up and coming Techno stars. In addition, Samurai.fm tapped Ryan to showcase his skills for part of their latest Make Your Move studio mix.
DEATH IS NOTHING TO FEAR also refers to Spectral's various artist compilation series, featuring seductively lethal tracks from both the established roster and newcomers. The first edition is out now and contains exclusive tracks from Audion, Bodycode, and Pär Grindvik. The 12" is available at buyghostly.com, along with corresponding limited edition clothing items, and the mp3s are available for download at beatport.com. DEATH IS NOTHING TO FEAR 2 hits stores June 17 and features tracks from Ryan Elliott, Audion and Traxx.
