audion

Matthew Dear will be premiering the LIVE show for his burgeoning Audion project next Saturday, February 22nd at El Rey Theater here in Los Angeles. From what we understand, this is going to be one hell of a spectacle, with the brains behind Vita Motus (the visual design company responsible for Amon Tobin’s ISAM performance) creating a one-of-a-kind experience matching the sounds of Audion with state of the art lighting, which Dear describes as “a living, breathing fusion of leftfield techno, glowing LED lights and dazzling sound-reactive visuals that’s at turns disorienting, beautiful, and terrifying.”

SOUNDS AWESOME RIGHT? Enter to win a pair of tickets to the show below. Winner will be announced next week. Continue Reading

Above_and_Beyond_Acoustic_CD-DVD-multi

I’ve been personally raving (no pun intended) about the Above & Beyond acoustic documentary since Thump aired it on YouTube last week. The 4 shows at Porchester Hall in London (as well as the 2 here in Los Angeles not in the film) were a testament to the musicianship of the longstanding trio, and their passion for creating such a complex performance is incredibly admirable.

As Above & Beyond Acoustic (the accompanying studio album) has been released today, we’ve been given a massive bundle of Above & Beyond merchandise to give away to one lucky person, including the DVD documentary, album, T-shirts, and all sorts of miscellaneous treats.

Enter to win this AMAZING prize below, and have a look at the goosebump-inducing full documentary via Thump as well! Continue Reading
