GANG GANG DANCE
Gang Gang Dance are definitely one of our favourite live bands out there! Spawned from the same fertile Brooklyn underground that's given rise to the likes of Animal Collective, Excepter and Black Dice, Gang Gang have similarly developed a dance music that is as experimental as it is fun and immediate. After three incredible albums for The Social Registry - 'God's Money' is surely a classic of our time - they have forged a reputation as one of the most unique live bands operating anywhere today. With cyclic rhythms, synthetic motifs, MIDI guitar and delay drenched ethereal vocals, their seamless sets encompass tribal ambience, Middle Eastern melodies, pysch freakouts and, above all, total rave euphoria! This will be their fourth UTR performance to date and follows their recent DVD art film 'Retina Riddim'. Look out for a new 12" release around this date on XL / Young Turks.
Absurdist composer and electronic musician, Dan Deacon, is based in Baltimore, Maryland. Musically influenced by Devo, Talking Heads, Scratch Orchestra, People Like Us, Raymond Scott and Conlon Nancarrow, Dan's music strives to take modern experimental composition and electronic music out of the circle of the esoteric intellectual gangs and hipster communities, placing it into the more informal "fun time". After 12 tours and 300+ shows in little over 2 years, Dan Deacon has garnered a reputation in the underground as an intense performer and classic showman. His latest album, 'Spiderman of the Rings' (Carpark/ Wildfire Wildfire) is his first album bridging the gap between party performer and genuine composer. A mixture of his live show dance anthems, intricate instrumentals and humorous monologues, the new album establishes Dan Deacon as a new type of entertainer in the contemporary underground.
