Research & Development with…

Circa Tapes (live) [DKA/Medical Records/Ghostly Intl]

Formerly a member of Ghostly International's Kill Memory Crash, Adam Killing's solo project has seen releases by DKA and Medical Records. Expect haunting atmospheres and industrial textures to prevail, driven by Circa Tape’s propulsive rhythms and often eerily effected vocal delivery.

2Lanes [Detroit]

A metro Detroiter by birth, 2Lanes was initially drawn to techno because of its political and anti-music industry roots. This will be his Chicago debut in advance of two forthcoming releases on Portage Garage Sound and Ceramic.

Obe [Idts]

Better known as Oli, the Chicago based artist/producer has been DJing/producing the past 3 years. Oli says "As a producer, one of my main focuses is institution, considering club sounds in relation to the spaces we enjoy them in. As a performer in spaces where the DJ is worshipped like a god, I'd prefer to stay in the background and let the space and sound take over." His first EP will be released this winter via Barcelona's Angoisse label.

JS Alvarez [Research & Development]

Dedicated to some of dance music's stranger and innovative realms, Research & Development takes pride in pushing the boundaries of contemporary electronic music while celebrating the origins from which it mutated. Spotlighting unique voices to in order to shape an unpredictable yet cohesive musical narrative.
