Brooklyn four-piece Fast Year are playing at Pianos an interesting bi-level venue opened in an old piano shop in New York on friday the 24th of August.
Fast Years plays a mix of 80′s Punk, Surf Pop, and Indie Garage, with influences ranging from The Sonics to The Exploding Hearts to The Vaccines.
Their first ever live show in January to a packed house alongside the white-hot Howler in Brooklyn, crept into the Hype Machine’s Top 15 Most Popular Tracks list, was featured on Amazing Radio UK and Q Radio’s New to Q program, played the Burning Ear’s SXSW showcase, as well as picking up the following praise:
“The track goes near polar-throwback in it’s tendencies towards nostalgic Garage and Pop. Especially for those letting a renaissance of bands like The Vaccines still sink in” – Blah Blah Blah Science
“sufficient bark to their garage stomp to merit a listen” – NME Radar Tip Of The Day
“Young Heart is a mile-a-minute, hook-a-plenty, good time jam that’s got us hot under the collar just now.” – Laissez Faire Club
“along the lines of Japandroids meets The Strokes meets The Vaccines – which we might broadly describe as a brilliant lo-fi sound…No doubt they will be here, there and everything sooner rather than later, but with tunes like these we’re sure as shit not complaining about it.” – Killing Moon
On Friday 24th August 2012, TROUBLE VISION returns to Corsica Studios for our 3rd annual ‘Carnival Warm Up Party,’ primed to kick start your August Bank holiday in style.
For this event every year we try to put a carivalesque, tropical spin on the lineup, and on this occasion we feel we’ve done just that. Headlining the event we are extremely proud to announce that a true British musical institution and global figurehead for jazz, world, dance music and beyond; Gilles Peterson, will be topping the bill for a rare club appearance. For an insight into Gilles’ eclecticism, tune into his weekly BBC 6 Music show every Saturday afternoon.
In support in room 1, flying in from Detroit USA we are very excited to welcome DJ Dez Andrés. Andrés aka DJ Dez, is one of the unsung heroes of underground Detroit music. Having started his career as the DJ for Slum Village, (J. Dilla’s hop hop outfit before going solo,) Andrés has established himself as a solo artist too, and has built up a catalogue that blurs the boundaries between hip hop, house, soul and beyond, most notably on labels like Moodymann’s KDJ and Mahogani Music. Earlier this year he released an EP on his own label La Vida, the lead track of which, ‘New For U,’ so far has widely been regarded as the track of the year.
In room 2, proceedings will take on a more UK slant with two up and coming talents from the underground. The first needs little introduction, T.Williams. Known for his bumpy take on UK rooted house music, and his superbly curated Rinse FM show, T, knows how to get a room moving. In support we welcome BrEaCh, the more 4/4 orientated project from Ben Westbeech. Having burst onto the scene under this new alias in 2010 with ‘Fatherless,’ Breach has kept his foot on the gas with releases on Dirtybird, PTN, 2020 Vision and most recently his own label ‘Naked Naked.’
With our trusty residents filling the gaps, and with tickets starting at just £8, this promises to be the perfect way to kickstart your August Bank holiday.
On Friday 24th August the opening party of Broken & Uneven’s The Hydra series takes place, hosted by Berlin’s Ostgut Ton – bringing over their label mainstays Marcel Dettmann, Marcel Fengler, Prosumer and Nick Hoppner to fly the flag for one of the most-revered Techno labels in recent times. We have also enlisted special guest Surgeon to join them and as fans of his lengthy body of work can attest, he pulls no punches when it comes to the art of Techno. This first night also sees some very special live art – an on-the-night mural by infamous street artists (and recent subject of TV’s ‘The Apprentice’) Pure Evil, whose signature prints are the perfect example of the high standard of creativity that’s bursting from East London’s pores right now..
