Artist Preview: Polish Ambassador, Heyoka, ChrisB., jOBOT and Alexander Smith

We are excited to announce our first event of 2012 featuring The Do LaB debut of The Polish Ambassador. He will be joined by LIB favorite Heyoka and LA’s own ChrisB. Alexander D.C.D. Smith will be painting live all night. This is set to be a wild night so let’s start the year off right! Discounted tickets are now available online.

POLISH AMBASSADOR

The Polish Ambassador is a beat machine from the future. Hailing simultaneously from the far reaches of other dimensional Universes and… Oakland, California, this dude drops his own unique blend of electro-funked, glitch-tweaked, wobble-freaked breakbeats that will have you dropping that bottom like it was 92…..3092, that is. The Ambassador builds all of his live sets from a monstrous stash of original drums, bass, synth, and vox lines. “No Genre Left Behind,” he jokes as he blends elements of funk, glitch, idm, hip hop, 80s music, jungle, and dub into a beat soup that will instigate healthy doses of booty shake and fist pump.

HEYOKA

Heyoka AKA Andrei Olenev is a cosmic auditory scientist found in the Bay Area noosphere, who has been blowing minds with his sonic manipulations. His early influences in Downtempo, Dub and IDM combined with midtempo dancefloor genres have helped create a very unique sound that combines relentless basslines, hip hop rhythms, dub vibes, and musicality and melody, all within an atmosphere of heavy psychedelia and alien dimensions. The response to his emergence so far has been overwhelming with Heyoka developing audiences and playing festivals around the world.

CHRISB.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, ChrisB. was immersed in Westcoast flavor since day one. Boldly exploring vast melodic realms full of hypnotic textures and a heavy dose of emotionally-resonant driving bass, his high energy live performances never fail to inspire each person in the audience. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he is utterly unafraid to toss aside the crutch of ‘brute-force’ sonic assaults and instead relies only on his brilliant melodic compositions. Chris’s sound reflects a developed musicality not often associated with the bulk of contemporary electronic music.

Read our new interview with ChrisB. here. It also features his brand new original mix.

JOBOT

jOBOT (Joe Wendt) was born and raised in Los Angeles. Now he devotes his life to slamming the dance floor with the funkiest baselines and the glitchiest ambient textures.His style spans across the entire musical spectrum… from cerebrally enticing IDM to world beats and organic sounds all the way to deep space mid tempo HEAT. So get ready to have your eardrums dripping with glitchy madness and the funkiest bass from all across the universe.

Live painting by Alexander D.C.D. Smith

Alexander D.C.D. Smith was born in Scottsdale, Arizona, September 16, 1984, and moved to Los Angeles at the age of three. Smith’s work explores the tension between opposites: dark and bright, glossy and matte, precision and spontaneity, structure and freedom. His work is inspired by urban and Asian cultures, typography, early cartoons, sports history, entertainment design, motor sports, and manufacturing techniques.
