Austin, TX, selector Dubbel Dutch is impervious to the crutches of genres, though a student of many of them. An accomplished producer of cosmic tone poems and club anthems from the abyss, many claim his now classic Throwback 12” on Palms Out Sounds saved their lives–or at least taught them a lesson in modern retrofitting. A chemistry of pre-hispanic shaman cries, YouTube videos of American microcosms, and 90s UK rave flyers make up his aesthetic, one which is not often associated with the Lone Star State. On Hymn, his debut EP for Mixpak, which dropped on the 15th November 2011, his methods havenʼt changed, but rather have become more refined.
Ghosts on Tape likes raving. Mind you, not the glowstick-powered, trance-laden nonsense that masquerades as raving these days. The San Francisco resident wants the real thing: dark warehouses, big soundsystems, sweaty walls and even sweatier bodies, and the pulsing sounds of gritty house and techno.
Future Perfect is home to the most talented and forward thinking local, national and international producers, DJs and live acts that independent music has to offer. The event aims to bring together art, music and fashion to those with discerning taste who are looking for an event that consistently offers them an experience truly unique to San Francisco.
