Jimmy The Lock
, featuring production from Low End luminaries Nosaj Thing, Daedelus, Nobody, Free the Robots and Thavius Beck. An amazing ride from start-to-finish,
Jimmy the Lock
has already joined the pantheon of L.A. underground rap classics. Declared "one of the best and most forward-thinking L.A. hip-hop records in years" by the L.A. Weekly, expect to hear much of
Jimmy the Lock
performed live for the very first time at this special event.
Jimmy Tamborello a.k.a. James Figurine is Dntel, undoubtedly one of the most highly exalted artists in electronic music. As the production genius behind The Postal Service, Jimmy has created a global following for his unique blend of minimal techno and indie-pop bubblegum. Dntel has rocked live sets at Low End Theory in previous years, and has also repped at the Unreleased Beat Invitationals. This time around he's taking over the decks for an early set upstairs.
With his industrial mash-up of sounds and rhythms from dancehall and drum-and-bass, King Cannibal already been declared by Ninja Tune as their first true hard man. He just released
Let The Night Roar
, an entralling piece of work that has been cautioned by Ninja Tune as "tension and release, exhilaration and fear, sex and violence, all the elements of great music are here."
As well as your residents
Batting first on the Low End Theory lineup is legendary producer and label boss Daddy Kev. As a producer and engineer, he's spent the last decade crafting classics for the likes of AWOL One, Busdriver, The Grouch, Sage Francis, Mix Master Mike, Abstract Rude, D-Styles, Freestyle Fellowship, The Shape Shifters and many more. His DJ sets are a high-tech affair with Kev primarily engaged in live remixes, slicing experimental beats and hip-hop classics to shreds.
From his adventures on the road with Mars Volta and Prefuse 73, to his production and remixes for Postal Service, Mystic Chords of Memory and Busdriver, coupled with his own solo work on labels such as Rough Trade and Plug Research, Nobody is a living tour de force of creative genius.
His virtuoso skills on the turntables have been compared to that of Jimi Hendrix and John Coltrane. As a former member of Invisibl Skratch Piklz and Beat Junkies, he toured the globe, helping transform turntablism into a global phenomenon. Now, the legendary D-Styles is back on the frontlines of underground culture, shredding your soul every week at Low End Theory.
THE GASLAMP KILLER
[Low End Theory]
Over the course of the last few years, Gaslamp Killer has established a solid rep for devastating beats and intricate cuts. This nomadic West Coaster has steadily smashed the scene from San Diego to Los Angeles to San Francisco, earning the respect of heavyweight players in the process. Bear witness to one of his epic sets and see what the buzz is all about.
He's no longer a secret. After winning the 2007 Scribble Jam MC Battle Championship, Nocando has been catapulted to new levels of international fame. He spent many Thursday nights honing his skills at Project Blowed, and has broken the dreams and hopes of countless would-be-MCs.
