The Bunker presents Naudio and Eric Cloutier at Galapagos
The Bunker presents Naudio and Eric Cloutier at Galapagos 70 North 6th Street 21+, 11p-4a
Influenced primarily by Jameson's Irish whiskey, Naudio's productions have perked up the ears of drunk people across the globe. He derives most of his creativity from the immediate thoughts that come to him after strange alcohol induced dreams. Waking up with an idea and immediately working on it has led to many deep heady tracks. Mixing DJing with production has kept things fresh and interesting in his music. While tech and minimal are major parts of his sound, Naudio has also been known to infuse elements of funk and soul to his sets. Naudio serves as the sound man for the Bunker and has been a great help to us in figuring out how to make the Beyond Sound System sound amazing at Galapagos. His release on Relay Recordings has received alot of play from both Bunker residents over the past year.
In a genre and movement all too predictable with the same fifty records playing forever on a continuous loop, Eric Cloutier is quietly making himself stand out amongst Detroit's next generation of producers and DJ's. He began on the same circuit of Detroit parties and clubs most have traveled, eventually establishing residencies at Ann Arbor's Necto and Detroit's prominent after hours party spot, The Works. He also performed at both 2004's Movement festival as well as 2006's Detroit Electronic Music Festival, and has shared the decks with fellow Detroit DJ's Matthew Dear, Derek Plaslaiko and Ryan Elliott. In 2005, he was handpicked as a chosen replacement for the next batch of DJ's at Detroit's monthly Untitled parties. He has since gone on to be label manager for the label Subtrak, which is slowly making waves amongst deeper minimal fans. Tasteful yet mildly abrasive, his blend of minimal techno infused with dub sensibilities firmly entrenches his sound in Detroit's rich past while looking towards the future.
