The Renaissance Man Project! Here’s a great text about from Turbo Recordings SC:

Architects are not like you or me. Every idiot knows architects are geniuses. And every moron with a map of the world in his jean pocket knows that Finns are smarter than most. Renaissance Man, then, embody the almost unimaginable ideal of the Finnish Architect, multiplied and then squared. To the funth power.

They met over a grim cup of black coffee at a Finnish architecture firm, launching their career in 2008 with the suitably clever ‘Spraycan’ on Switch’s Dubsided, built around a novel aerosol-can sample. They soon found eager champions in the tastemakers at Kitsuné, Sound Pellegrino, and the blogtelligensia over at Fluokids. By 2010, they were legitimate players, having remixed WhoMadeWho, Delphic, Crystal Fighters, Brodinski, Crookers, Health, and, most recently, Azari & III.

And, against all reasonable expectation, they just kept getting smarter, refining their sound away from the dimwit muck of blog-house and moving into more serious production territory, relocating to Berlin and learning how to lifestyle it up, playing at Panorama Bar and exploring the semiotics of the drink ticket.

A more refined, structural sound emerged on the Babbadabba EP on Made to Play. And the larger scope of their commitment to intelligent design comes to fruition on their upcoming album on Turbo, erecting a post-tropical hermitage of Dancing Man’s Thoughtfunk. The music is highly detail-oriented, referencing everything from bass music to curry house, with eyes and ears trained on millennia of art and concept, with a special emphasis on the millennia when music actually existed. The first single, “When You Do What You Do” is a “Who’s What You Who” of blazing Critiical House.

Renaissance Man. Designing the box. Building the box. Thinking on top of the box.

Renaissance Man Remix Duty

10 Mar

Is it stupid to promote another gig on the same night we are mixing elsewhere? Well guess the point was to show a couple of new remixes from Renaissance Man below. If you aren’t already in Zermatt (Vernissage Club) checking us Ducks + Pizz on the visuals this Friday, and you happen to live near where this event takes place, then do drop in as the line up looks splendid. I won’t mention where it is but if you are resourceful then it shouldn’t be a problem! In the meantime, stream these gems.. quack
