Lunice is coming (2 NYC dates, 1 w/ Pictureplane), Mad Decent Block Parties update linueps (Lunice included)
“Wake n baked up, on route to NYC for the weekend.” – Lunice
You may know Lunice from the remix he did with Diplo for Deerhunter‘s “Helicopter”, his insane dance moves, or from his instructional cooking videos (watch/listen to all of it below). We just posted a track he did with ST 2 Lettaz of G-Side (you can also listen to it below). Over a year ago Dazed Digital wrote:
Lunice Fermin Pierre II is many things. The prolific Canadian young gun first found net celebrity with his cult YouTube dance videos, his intergalactic B-Boy stance scored by the beat pack – the discordant wave of club banging hip hop producers that include San Francisco’s Lazer Sword, LuckyMe’s Mike Slott and LA’s Nosaj Thing. Lunice’s own 80’s inspired, glitchy soul thizzes across official remixes for Big Dada whilst the blog platinum bootlegs of MOP, Lil Mama and Aaliyah keep his ManyBrain.blogspot.com family in check.
That blog has actualy become inactive, but Lunice has been keeping super busy.
He’s got some upcoming dates including two this weekend in NYC: July 22 at Bowery Hotel with Pictureplane (DJ), Teengirl Fantasy (DJ), and Cool Places Soundsystem (in case you were wondering where that TBD NYC show on July 22 was going to be). Check out the flyer below, and note that RSVP may be required for the free party. Pictureplane & Teengirl Fantasy play live on July 23 at 285 Kent.
Lunice also plays Warm Up on Saturday, July 23 at PS1 with Gang Gang Dance (DJ), Syd tha Kyd, Miracles Club, and Laurel Halo.
He’s also on the bill of Mad Decent Block Parties in Chicago and LA. He’s not on the NYC party at South Street Seaport but Gang Gang Dance, who he shares a bill with at PS1 are. More Lunice dates below.
Speaking of Mad Decent Block Parties, Claude VonStroke was added to the NYC show and as hinted at, Curren$y was added to the Chicago date (now that he’s done playing Pitchfork). Updated lineups and dates below.
