M.E.S.S. & CP bring Kirk Degiorgio
February 7, 2012 in Events
Our homies at Mother Earth Sound System and Crowdpleaser are bringing in an old techno stalwart this weekend, Kirk Degiorgio. This is a great chance to get your brain pummeled, up close and personal. One thing I dig about Kirk, is how he can project a split image of his mug like you see here. That and how he started a party in London, where artists play live and HAVE to play all unreleased, new material…or apparently their heads will be chopped off. It’s called Machine, check it.
See below for more information and stay tuned for a full review of the night.
Mother Earth Sound System + CrowdPleaser presents:
Friday, Feb 10
KIRK DEGIORGIO (UK)
aka As One / Future-Past / Esoterik
ART / Planet E / Rush Hour
Almost as if to try and throw his fans off the scent, Kirk Degiorgio has used As One, Elegy, Esoterik, Critical Phase, and Future/Past as recording aliases. In 1992 Degiorgio recorded his first release on B12 Records and shortly after founded the ART label (Applied Rythmic Technology) releasing early material by seminal artists such as Carl Craig, Aphex Twin, Stasis, and The Black Dog.
Degiorgio went on to record material for ART, Planet E and R&S before signing As One to New Electronica for the albums Reflections and Celestial Soul, which both made the Muzik Top 30 albums for 1994/5. Further albums for Clear (UK), Mo Wax, Ubiquity, Versatile and Neroli cemented Kirk’s reputation as a seriously heavyweight producer with a unique, individual sound, beautifully combining elements of jazz, soul, techno and funk into electronic tracks.
