About the artists

HEATSICK is the project of Berlin-based musician and visual artist Steven Warwick, also known for his work in the electronic duo, Birds of Delay. Heatsick’s entrancing live show is created in real time based upon loops that are moulded, stretched and reduced to interlink, nestling and merging with one another in a similar way to his visual artwork, where objects and media combine and coalesce in an environment inviting the viewer’s participation. Combining a palette of sources from early Chicago house mixtapes (in sound, texture and mixing technique) through to musique concrete and psychedelia, Heatsick proposes a live dance music that expands and unlocks the senses: his use of limited resources to produce an immersive, maximalist sound environment — often stretched beyond three hours and augmented by elements of his broader art practice for his Extended Play… performance series — has been favorably received at venues, clubs and festivals across the world including Berghain/Panorama Bar, Unsound, MoMa and Novas Frequencias in Rio. Heatsick’s most recent release, Re-engineering (PAN, 2013) is described as a “cybernetic poem”, indulging us in the mores of hypnotic dance music while holding a critical, and at times satirical, lens toward the culture writ large.

CONTAINER is the stripped-down, beat-oriented electronic project of Providence, RI’s Ren Schofield, who somehow sculpts viscous punk sonics into raw jackhammer rhythms that groove in the most relentless, hypnotic, unstoppable and psychedelic ways currently working the grid. This lo-fi mesh of maxed-out drum patterns, spiraling loops and mesmerizing arrangements makes for live music of serious weight and function, suitable for both high-end dancefloors and filthy warehouse parties alike.Started in 2009 in response to his discovery of nineties minimal techno, Container combined elements from his background in noise and cassette collage music with a new found interest in repetitive beats to create this raw and damaged rhythmic sound.

After a string of various cassette releases, the debut full-length LP was released by Editions Mego sub-label Spectrum Spools in 2011, and has since been followed up by a second Spools LP, the Treatment 12” on the Morphine label, and a new 12” on Mute’s Liberation Technologies imprint which will be dropping this Fall.

JIMMY HUGHES is an artist and musician living in Jamaica Plain. He performs improvised electronic music on an analog+ digital modular synthesizer as DINNERS. In his art, he focuses primarily on new interfaces for creating and hearing electronic sound. In performances as Dinners, Hughes often incorporates different sensors and circuits – light, sound, touch – that allow for more expressive (and sometimes unpredictable) sonic results from the synthesizer. Prior to performing as Dinners, Hughes was in the electronic pop duo, Turtle Ambulance. He currently plays keyboards in the Boston-based rock band, Huge Face. Jimmy has vinyl and cassette releases out on Whitehaus Family Record and Moss Archive.
