DJ /rupture
Fri, 17th       01:00 -03:00       Paradox

Last.fm: ‘DJ /rupture is the pseudonym of Jace Clayton, a producer and DJ, formerly based in Barcelona, but now New York City. He used to play in the collective Toneburst. DJ /rupture’s first big break came in 2001 with Gold Teeth Thief, a mixtape which mixes hip hop, ragga, breakcore, jungle, noise, modern classical and music from around the globe. His second mixtape Minesweeper Suite was an even greater success, with the UK music magazine The Wire calling it one of the 10 best records of 2003.

If the whole blekkk metal thing isn’t for you, there’s another artist you should see on Friday: DJ /rupture. I saw him last year in 013 with Andy Moor (The Ex) and was blown away by his skills and his feel for music. After the metallic noise of the rest of the evening I will probably go and see this to get myself back in balance again. During the daytime DJ /rupture will be speaking at the Incubate Pirate Conference.

A new video for the new mix, Solar Life Raft! This is a very special animation, directed by Sara Taigher and illustrated by Maria Chiara di Giorgio.
