** The BOOM BAP. 4th Saturdays at The 5 Spot!***
*Special Guest: KDSML
KDSML is the avant-garde of the new guard, a bleeding edge DJ with the skills and experience to blow speakers and blow minds where ever he goes. Born in the U.K. But hailing from Nashville KDSML merges the British Isles love for electronic progressivism with the South’s love for the big, big bass tying them together with a turntablist’s fleet fingers and an ear-to-ear grin that’s as contagious as it is honest. With over fifteen years behind the tables and a family steeped in DJ culture like few others – his father wrote Babe Ruth’s “The Mexican” one of the most important breaks in hip hop history, while his brother is one of Music City’s most innovative producers of hip hop and electronic music – KDSML approach to production and performance is as natural as it gets. His cuts and scratches are technical but seamless often invisible in the scope of the greater mix, his track selections bold exciting find the precious middle ground between atmosphere and melody, song-structure and sound design. It’s a balance and precision that’s missing from an electronic music scene that’s forsaken it’s underground roots in favor of elaborate stage production and pop-remixes.
KDSML’s evolution is constant, spurred on by a live performance schedule that has seen him criss crossing country swapping ideas and energy with an international cadre of established acts and up-and-comer. From the epic Nocturnal Festival to the wilds of Camp Bisco to the chaos of Mindelixir’s Bass Church monthly, KDSML has been staging a quiet campaign to takeover contemporary electronic music one show at a time. From his first full-length album Secret Recipe to his Trapjaw series of mixtapes, KDSML has explored the depths of hip hop and electronic music’s overlapping aesthetics – it’s the bass, duh – gliding between the two and pushing the envelope of what dance music can and should be.
THE BOOM BAP is Saturday August 23rd at The Five Spot…
