The quotable Matthew Herbert is deejaying at Studio B. I didn't see him the last time he deejayed here, but someone told me it was great. Some background on Herbert and event info below:

Restless innovator, sampling wizard, classically trained pianist and superstar collaborator, MATTHEW HERBERT is one of electronic music's most versatile and prolific figureheads. Recording under his own name as well as Doctor Rockit, Wishmountain, Radio Boy and others, Herbert has also produced and remixed artists as diverse as Björk, REM, John Cale, Roisin Murphy, Yoko Ono and Serge Gainsbourg.

An alchemist of avant-garde sound in the tradition stretching from Stockhausen to the Aphex Twin, Herbert combines playful pop sensibility with a strictly imposed experimental agenda. In his increasingly conceptual and political albums he has emerged as a unique figure in modern music: a kind of one-man Radiohead, or a Brian Eno for the 21st century.

Findlay Brown

Ending this week on a very, very vaguely dance-related note - I saw Findlay Brown perform at Pianos this past week and he was awesome. On his MySpace he lists the following as his influences and his sound channels a number of them pretty well:

Phil Spector, Ennio Morricone, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Roy Orbison, Dion, Can, Moondog, Townes Van Zandt, Serge Gainsbourg, Gene Clark, Motown, Tim Hardin, Jackson c Frank, Neil Young, Righteous Brothers, Mel Tormé, Joe Meek, Skip Spence, The Flamingos, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Neil Diamond, Mulatu Astatke, Roberta Flack, Santo & Johnny....

The entire performance was great and he ended the show with an acoustic version of one of his own tracks as well as " Mystery Train" by Elvis which he played in the middle of the crowd. Download a Dimitri from Paris remix of one of Findlay's tracks, plus some original versions at the top of this post. Also be sure to check out Pilooski's edit of "Promised Land" over at RCRDLBL.

Keep dancing and don't let this cold weather stop you from experiencing great music!
