SALVA

Salva, Kastle, Goldrush – 9/13 @ The Savoy

We are proud to present a night of forward-thinking electronic music that reinvigorates classic elements of soul, R&B & Hip-Hop tradition with the deep, warm textures of a highly-sophisticated, modern take on rhythm and sound. Stylistically, each artist stands in a different corner of the genre-spectrum within electronic music, but all share a similar undertone of expressing the familiar themes of romance, identity, and the raw, tangled emotions of the human condition; all of which are classic subject matter that has dominated art, literature and music throughout history. Get ready to dance your heart out, Salva, Kastle & GoldRush are going to entice our senses and keep you moving all night long. September 13th it all unfolds. Mark your calendar, You're not going to want to miss a moment.

Salva

(Los Angeles / FriteNite / FoF)

&

Best known as a versatile solo producer and owner of the revered Frite Nite label (B. Bravo, Eprom, Ana Sia), Salva promotes complexity through a synthesis of contrasting styles. His label, which has emerged as one of North America's premiere sources of West Coast electronic bass music, explores all corners of the electronic soundscape and harnesses diversity to produce composotions that transcend genre boundaries.

&

A Chicago native who developed his craft in San Francisco and currently resides in Los Angeles, Salva is an alum of the Red Bull Music Academy Class of 2011. He has produced exclusive mixes for Mary Anne Hobbs, The FADER, and XLR8R, while being asked to remix the likes of Miguel Migs, Rainbow Arabia, Om Unit and others. Honing his talents as one of the cornerstones of the Friends of Friends label alongside Shlohmo and Mexicans With Guns, Salva has released his debut full-length, 'Complex Housing', and the 'Yellobone' EP, both to critical acclaim (Pitchfork, FADER, FACT, and many others).

&

Salva's audacity results in a complex collection of dips into house motifs, grooves in smooth boogie funk, and audience roiling massive bass waves. With support from BBC's Benji B, the UK's Night Slugs imprint (Bok Bok, Girl Unit), and the Low End Theory residents (Gaslamp Killer, DJ Nobody, Daddy Kev), it's The FADER's Julianne Shepherd that sums up the man best: “Paul Salva is a funky motherf*cker”.

Kastle

(San Francisco / Symbols Recordings)

 

&

&

The popularity of bass-heavy dance music is spreading like wildfire across the world, with many producers crafting their own styles of dubstep, grime and garage. In the city of San Francisco, CA DJ/producer Kastle has cultivated his own style of bass-heavy beats with a soulful twist.

&

After teaching himself guitar and piano at the age of 12, Barrett Richards pooled his efforts towards electronic instrumentation two years later. He began taking production as seriously as he did DJing during that time, and involved himself deep into the Northeast rave scene. It was no surprise that in time, though, personal growth and 14 years of production experience paired with a degree in audio engineering would breed a new sound. Kastle came to life at a pivotal moment after a big move from Boston back to his hometown of Pittsburgh in March of '09. After nearly a year of conceptualizing, he knew he was working on something special.

&

The name itself implies a fortress, a personal space that is used to cultivate a long-time love of hip-hop and R&B and fuse it with the magnetizing effect that dubstep, garage and bass music has had on Barrett and, really, the various communities of underground electronic music.

&

The studio and touring dichotomy of an artist's life is a perfect yin & yang for Kastle in both his production and outlook. His professional experience as an engineer puts forth clean, crisp production, but his love for the party provides a playful bass that eats a room. Altogether, the wide varieties of vocals – both originals and sampled – are a key element of Kastle's sound. “I grew up on hip hop and R&B, where sampling is considered an art form,” he says. “It's becoming more and more fun to dig through old records and find obscure samples.” He cites another unexpected influence – legendary French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, who had once said that “it's not where you take things from, it's where you take them to.”
