New York Times love, followed by European tour dates.

first, NYT embraced my Frieze auto-tune essay as “Idea of the Day.”


[New York Times: Kyle Dean Reinford/Sonarsound]

And a few days later there appeared a very nice review & photo of my SONAR set. The event was a blast, thanks to everyone who came out (like Lou Reed!) and raved on a Tuesday night.

Jon Pareles’ SONAR review ended with:

“DJ/Rupture played strategically plotted but constantly surprising international mashups: a pitch-shifted “Standing in the Shadows of Love” vocal matched to a dancehall reggae bass line, cumbia accordions cascading over thumping electro beats, “Walk Like an Egyptian” with a sitar line tucked in. His music was plugged into ideas from around the globe; it also got people dancing.”

it was my last NYC gig for a minute — here’s info on my upcoming European tour:

May 29 – Berlin. The Bug w/ Flow Dan, Kid606, DJ Rupture, Sick Girls, Christoph de Babylon. big party!

  3. Excellent! looking forward to your set in Alosta, i’m curious what’s packed in the bag.. especially when it comes to your cumbia-selection and of course the ever fresh & inspiring basss-tracks you use!
