Telefon Tel Aviv – Re:Generation 2007 (Live Set)

Download a recording of Telefon Tel Aviv’s live performance at Re:Generation festival at Deerfields, NC on July 7, 2007

July 2007, a reasonably small music festival in Horse Shoe, outside Asheville, NC at the Deerfields Retreat – among the many performers that weekend was Telefon Tel Aviv who performed this brief but memorable set in the middle of the afternoon.

Deerfields Retreat (2007)

Far more people pictured above than were on-hand for the afternoon’s performance which made for an even more intimate setting in the hills of North Carolina. Please note this is an audience recording, not taken from soundboard. The entire set is available as a single track in FLAC or 320 MP3 below. I haven’t had time to sort out the setlist yet.

Hefty Records Flossed Out Mix

A 2006 mix from The Glitch Mob’s edIT, showcasing beats from Hefty Records’ discography and the best of mid-aughts rap.

Coming out of Chicago, John HughesHefty Records served as a home for for artists like Elliot Lipp, and Telefon Tel Aviv, and at least one Prefuse 73 side project, as well as providing a home for some overlooked artists of the time such as Some Water and Sun and Retina.it

A number of the artists featured here including the DJ have moved on to understandably different aesthetics in the 8 years since this has been released but, like any good mix it is not only technically interesting but serves as a snapshot of the time which is was made.

edIT, now of Glitch Mob fame, shares remixes of mid-aught era rap on top of a handful of beats from the Hefty Records collection. Years later and I still have a soft-spot for this one.

DJG Flyer (Back)

In case you can’t tell by the increased frequency of posts things have been quite busy around here lately; in addition to the obscene amounts of techno on Thursday night, I will be joining Richard Devine and San Francisco’s DJG.

DJG has been a long time favorite of mine, with a number of releases on early SF-based dubstep label NarcoHZ, which also featured the deep sounds of artists like Djunya, Juju, and Tes La Rok. Focused on a more deeper vibe than what permeates most of the American dubstep landscape, DJG’s music has held a place in my own sets as well as being rinsed by much higher profile DJs such as N-Type, Pinch, and Joe Nice

I am quite excited to be a part of this lineup; these are both artists and performers I have looked up to for quite some time, and it’s definitely an honor to be a part of the evening; especially given how amazing great everything sounded the last event Atlanta Dubstep held at The SoundTable with Headhunter.

If you are looking to check out some more from these artists before heading down to this one Friday night, DJG provided an interview and a downloadable mix available from Sonic Router. Additionally be sure to check out this podcast from Richard Devine for Electric Deluxe, or be sure to come see him the evening before as a part of Heat Promotions’ Thermal at Lava Lounge.
