Tri Angle labelmates Holy Other and oOoOO recently played the Tri Angle showcase at Sonar 2011 in Spain with How To Dress Well (whose LP Love Remains was reissued on the label earlier this year). You can watch some videos from the fest below.
Holy Other and oOoOO will play together again on tour this summer with Tri Angle DJs spinning between sets. The NYC show is on August 11 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets are on sale. All dates are listed below.
Both of them also play PS1 Warm Up events, but not together. Holy Other plays what will be his first US show at PS1 on July 30. Das Racist and XXXY also DJ that day. oOoOO plays with other Tri Angle labelmates: Clams Casino, Ayshay and Water Borders, on August 13.
Holy Other released the With U EP earlier this month. Like many of his fellow Tri Angle producers, Holy Other creates floating reverbial soundscapes with bass-heavy beats. Check out the track "Touch" above which loops a trancelike vocal sample directly into your brain. Matthewdavid, who plays a Warm Up event even sooner, remixed the track. Grab that above too.
The full PS1 lineup for this Saturday, July 9th is:
Four Tet / Domino / London, UKYou can also try and catch SBTRKT later that night. Don't bother trying to see Four Tet at Marcy Hotel though.
Falty DL / Planet Mu / New York, NY
SBTRKT / Young Turks / London, UK
Bronze / RVNG Intl / San Francisco, CA
Matthewdavid / Brainfeeder / Los Angeles, CA
TURRBOTAX® DJs / New York, NY
