The sounds of Brooklyn and Bristol collide this spring as MartyParty and Joker team up their 2014 tour. A truly unique pairing, the duo will play an international tour with 20+ dates across North America from February through mid May.
Martin Folb, the man behind MartyParty is truly a juggler of electronic talent. When the South African born Brooklyn native isn’t commanding the decks as MartyParty, he’s also revving up audiences as half of the electronic duos PANTyRAiD (with Ooah of Glitch Mob) and Deathstar (with Minnesota). In addition to his collaborative projects, MartyParty has earned a reputation as one of the fastest and highest quality producers within the electronic music industry and has released over 50+ tracks the past two years alone. His trill combination of hip-hop-meets-dubstep produce a seemingly eerie intergalactic trap groove as you lose yourself within the electrosynthesis of fast hitting percussions and melodic highs.
Having collaborated and performed with huge names like Skrillex, Steve Aoki, Glitch Mob, Bassnectar, and appearing at festivals like Camp Bisco, Monsters of Bass, and Lightning in a Bottle, Folb continues to entrench himself within EDM with talent that secures his place on stage.

 

 

Also sharing the spotlight on the road will be UK grime artist Joker. Just after celebrating his 25th birthday, Liam McLean, known to international bassheads as Joker, will be crossing the Atlantic all the way from Bristol, England to help staple his physical presence in US’s electronic music community. Appearing on international marquees with some of the of the scene’s biggest acts, such as Skream, Steve Aoki, Porter Robinson, Steve Angello, Feed Me, and Foreign Beggars, has earned this rising act Pitchfork’s 2008 “Producer of the Year” and track appearances on Ministry of Sound’s Addicted to Bass series as well as Blow Your Head Diplo Presents: Dubstep EP.

 

 

Joker brings the vibrations in a way that is a reminiscent of true soulful UK dubstep but with electro grime flair.  He turns away over complex hardcore style turning down the BPM and lets the wubs do the work. The result is a smooth combination of bass meets street style, with a flavor of arcade punk. With a quick leg of three Northeast shows do not miss a rare stateside appearance by this English dubstep wizard.

 

 

2/7 (Fri): Rex Theater, Pittsburgh

2/8 (Sat): 88 Palace, NYC *GIVEAWAY*

A hybrid child of the 203 & 860, Seth would save up any allowance money he had and raid the dance section of his local CD store for anything with a 4X4 beat. By high school, he organized his area’s first electronic event. While this proved to be a disaster, he wrote a killer college acceptance letter about it - thus a music journalist was born. Today he continues to document from behind the keyboard. When he’s not searching for the perfect emoji or making festival posters/totems, he enjoys long walks into parallel universes, pulling off shameless dance moves, and leading the fight against kids from CT who feel wearing cowboy hats is okay.
