The Bunker presents randomnumber, I Am A Robot And Proud, and Uni & Barbariz at subTonic
April 9, 2004
Randomnumber is an electronic musician with a strong background in live music. He was a member of Coping Saw, Rauschen, and most famously, Hood. His music has been described as "'northern wrongbeat': a mesh of emotive, brooding harmonies drawn and quartered by complex, beat-heavy rhythms." His 2002 The Fact That I Did EP on Mogwai's Rock Action imprint was named Dance Single of the Week by NME, who called it "Slint meets Aphex Twin on plastic". His music ranges from very dark heavy textural noisy terrain to much more melodic sounds, and should appeal to fans of Autechre and Richard Devine. I Am A Robot And Proud played at the Bunker in 2003 (where he was definitely the highlight of the Skylab Operations tour), and we are happy to welcome him back to NYC. His music is intensely electronic and robotic sounding (thus the name), without sacrificing a warm human melodic sensibility. Follow the link to his website for much more information, mp3's, and be sure to run your mouse over the triangles for participatory electronic music fun. Uni and Barbariz are here from Estonia! we've never heard them play, but the CD's we got from Kohvi are great. Mixmaster Morris has been telling us how great these guys are for awhile now. Check out the Kohvi website for more details: http://www.kohvirecords.ee Unjust is a Miami friend of the Secret Frequency Crew who is loosely affiliated with the Schematic label. Once the idm guys are finished around 1am, she will take over on the turntables and hit us with some very tasteful minimal techno and tech-house. She rattled off a bunch of labels she likes on the phone, and they were all Bunker faves.
