ARTISTS TO WATCH :: SWEATSHOPPE

My homie Fabian Tejada put me onto these guys last year and I've been dying to collaborate with them ever since...Tonight, I'll have a chance to experience in real time what they are all about at the event I'm hosting at Le Poisson Rouge also featuring NERVE featuring Jojo Mayer, SONNYMOON (NYC Debut), MIKE SLOTT (LuckyMe), MELO - X (Featuring Jade & Nikki NTU), SHANTELL MARTIN (visuals), DJ BURT FOX & The Ladies of LICK. Check out the event page for more info.
"SWEATSHOPPE is a new multimedia performance collaboration between Bruno Levy and Blake Shaw that works at the intersection of art, music and technology. Developing software to construct a totally unique interactive performance, the duo works towards creating unique ways of affecting an audience. Whether it be as a dance driven electronic music performance that emphasizes sound reactive visuals, building interactive installations, or the fabrication of guerrilla technologies to augment public space, the duo strives towards an element of pop accessibility that is so often ignored in the technocentric world of experimental media."
