Additional Info

Bombardier Bio
Bombardier is the moniker for Jason Snell, an electronic artist with over 50 albums and singles since 1998. Discovered by Kid 606 in San Francisco, his first album was Violence, a full length mix CD of original material on Vinyl Communications, one of the most well respected hardcore labels in the world.

Inspired by German and Midwest hardcore like DHR and Delta 9, Snell created a breakbeat gabber hybrid and evolved into a fusion between punk and drum n bass. He used 4-track recording with distortion stomp boxes to apply a raw, punk sound to the electronic genre. He became a shaping influence of the breakcore sound emerging in the late 90’s, producing music for pioneering labels such as Low Res, Addict, Drop Bass, Hangars Liquides (France) and CFET (Germany). Snell has performed live at shows throughout the US and Canada alongside Meat Beat Manifesto, Adam X, DJ Hidden, Delta 9, Venetian Snares, DJ Scud and Christoph De Babalon.

In 2000, Snell moved to downtown New York City and started D13 Records, a sub-label of Low Res used as a platform to release his music and designs. His style has evolved over the years to include techno, industrial, electro, and ambient. His music has been featured in several films, the first of which premiered at Sundance and won several awards at film festivals worldwide.

In 2009, Snell moved to California and has continued to use all the tools at his disposal to create new forms of music, design, and sound interfaces.

Speak Onion Bio
As Speak Onion, Dan Abatemarco treads on, then completely explodes, the line between producer and noisician. He spews seething noise, giant deformed beats and absolutely wrong atmospheres in fits and starts until nothing sounds like what it sounds like anymore. Breakbeats and basslines enter innocently but end up processed beyond recognition and drowning in feedback. Synth sounds are stretched, manipulated, and left ruined as chilling shrieks. The resulting sonic abomination slips between the dimensions of experimentalism, harsh noise, and beat-bashed breakcore. Dancefloor? Maybe. Slaughterhouse floor? Yes, definitely.

Deep sub-basements, dank warehouses and sketchy bars are a natural fit for Speak Onion’s mutant sound. Insisting on energetic, spontaneous, out-of-control performance, Speak Onion eschews a laptop for a cobbled together pile of hardware, intermingling synthesizers, wrecked guitar pedals, homemade sound destroyers and even an iphone. He wants to up-end your party and leave your crowd with blown-out heads. This cannot be overstated: Speak Onion loves playing shows and has the YouTube videos to prove it.

Join us for a night of music with our special guest: Ariadne.

Ariadne is a sacred music duo based in Brooklyn, NY, comprised of Christine Lanx and Benjamin Forest. Their focus lies in the fixed framework of ritual interspersed with sacred and secular symbolism. Influenced by the canonical hours, their sound contains modern chant-like vocalises, Anglican choral textures, and percussive soundscapes in dense sonic textures. They are fascinated by juxtaposing themes, ancient structure and draw inspirations from mysticism and dystopian fantasies.

WRECKED podcast pre-cast, Lazercrunk BLAST OFF mix series and IN THE PIT live recordings…

By | audio | No Comments

Been working on a few audio projects quietly, and some signs of each have begun to surface.

WRECKED pre-podcast pre-cast, recorded July 20th 2015

I’m working on starting a monthly/weekly podcast where every week I post a short edition with a couple background tracks and a run-down of local events of note, and then once a month, a longer, multi-hour show with a guest set – live or dj – interviews, round tables, a fuller event listing, new notable releases and some selections from myself in the mix.

This is just me using the soundcloud app to test out recording the event listing.

Next, Todd Keebs and I decided to start a new, monthly mix series for LAZERCRUNK, which we’re calling BLAST OFF, released each month ahead of the upcoming LC edition.
The idea is to feature our guest’s tracks, as well as keep you up to date with what sounds we’re feeling in the LAZERCRUNK universe. This first edition is from KEEB$,
and kicks off with a tune from this month’s guest, SWINDLE.

The third project is a small thing i’ve been doing at shows – just turning on the soundcloud record app during sets while in the crowd and seeing what I come up with.
Sometimes it might be crowd banter, a snippet of a set, or a full track with crowd noise. I got a couple decent recordings, so I posted things from a couple recent pittsburgh shows under the label IN THE PIT.
