Future Rock
Future Rock
Chicago’s own Future Rock have carved out a category largely their own, adding drifting elements of Krautrock and space rock to rhythmic textures that reference Motorik, funk and four-on-the-floor disco. Outside of hometown Chicago, they may be best known for high profile and excellent remixes of Daft Punk, Neon Indian, Black Moth Super Rainbow and DFA 1979. Back home they are justly celebrated for legendary performances such as their set at Wicker Park Fest that turned the entire neighborhood into a vast and energized dance floor, forcing even the palest and most resolutely hard-to-impress hipsters to call up their inner dance masters. Live performances combine loops, samples and Mickey Kellerman‘s keyboards with Darren Heitz‘s drums plus Felix Moreno‘s Larry Graham-style bass slapping to create an enormously powerful groove. Their light show is as good as their music, and their set have been known to inspire dance frenzies.
Asian Teacher Factory
Asian Teacher Factory
Through the streets of Taipei, a scientist rides his bike everyday to work to his robot factory run by school children. As the technicolored lights flash by him, the music of Asian Teacher Factory run through his mind. Half way across the world in Asheville, NC, Asian Teacher Factory creates this music in their mountain haven rich with fine teas and kava. A collaborative effort to make rock music with an edgy drive through ethereal compositions, Asian Teacher Factory is a keyboard, drums and guitar trio dedicated to furthering the psychedelic mind in asian science education.
