Grum @ Beauty Bar this Sunday!!!

=::BucklUp Entertainment and Future Retro ::=
Proudly Present ...


::Recently declared by Hype Machine to be the second most blogged act in the world behind Radiohead, Grum's music is no stranger to the dance floor. Earning high regards from Aeroplane, and being featured on the playlists of Pete Tong, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, and Alex Metric, has definitely solidified him as a production force to be reckoned with. Original tracks including "Heartbeats, Sound Reaction, Runaway, and Go Back," topped charts, as well as a line of paramount remixes for Passion Pit, Friendly Fires, Anoraak, Tronick Youth, Keenhouse, Priors, Chelley, and Jump Jump Dance Dance to name a few. Hailing from Leeds, U.K. with a mash up of french house, italo-disco, and new wave, Grum will be joining us for his only Texas appearance during his North American tour!!

“If Grum is what the future of electronic music sounds like (and we’re pretty sure he is), save us a spot on the dancefloor”
Luke Crisell, Nylon

interview: JAKE aka LUDACHRIST / KILL THE NOISE: exclusive

during sxsw i got a chance to see see LUDACHRIST and KILL THE NOISE and it was amazing. also i got to meet with the talent behind both of the projects and he agreed to do an interview. so here it is...

A.WARD: tell us a little bit about whats in store for ludachrist and kill the noise as far as projects and production goes?

JAKE: Well, Ludachrist's new album is finished. Unfortunately, all the information about it is top secret at this point. All I can say about it right now is that it's done, and it will be coming out soon!

JAKE: I just finished my debut EP as Kill The Noise! I'm calling it the "Roots EP". It has 4 tracks on it, all of which are slightly different. I worked my ass off on it, so definitely make sure you check it out haha. It comes out on a new label I've just started with Miami's DJ Craze! Look for it 4/6/10 on beatport and then 4/26/10 everywhere else that deals digital releases.

A.WARD: are then any secret projects you can give us hints on?

JAKE: Well, I'm always workin on something. Lately I've been working a lot at 140bpm...

A.WARD: so i found out during sxsw that you started a record label called SLOW ROAST RECORDS. can you tell me a little bit more about it?

JAKE: It's a label I started with DJ Craze. We just launched it the last couple months and the first release is coming up soon as I've already mentioned. It is distributed by A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs mightly Fool's Gold Imprint. Keep an eye out on our and our website for more info on that!

A.WARD: whats styles of music influence and are important to the music you produce and play?

JAKE: Music in general! I listen to all styles. I have ADD when it comes to what I like. One minute it's the latest house mix, next minute its hip-hop, after that I'm listening to old Metallica records... I get ideas from across the board.

A.WARD: what kind of hardware / software are you using when you play out and for production?

JAKE: I DJ using Traktor these days. I got picked up by Native Instruments to use their product, and I'm lovin' it! I have plans of developing a live set, the details on that are in the works!

JAKE: For production, I use Reason 4 and Ableton 8 mostly. However I have a long list of 3rd party plugins and occasionally other sequencers I crack open too!

A.WARD: any tips for anyone out there who may be wanting to start producing?

JAKE: Start listening critically to all music and ask yourself a lot of questions about how and why things sound the way they do. Compare what you are making to the things you are influenced by and try to figure out what the differences are and why. Ask as many questions as you can, and send your music to people you think have a unique perspective. Get lots of feedback!

A.WARD: where can people go do find out more about your music and what youre doing?


A.WARD: big THANKS for taking the time to talk with with me during sxsw and for doing this interview! hopefully we sill see you back in austin texas real soon!

JAKE: I'll be back!
