ABOUT RÜFÜS DU SOL
In a short 18 months RÜFÜS have been busy. Multiple sold out tours in Australia. Remixes and originals for Kitsuné (FRA) and Plant (USA). Playing sold out parties in NYC, in front of band members from LCD Soundsystem. High rotation singles, main stage festival appearances as far away as Moscow and many hours locked in their home studio/dungeon, writing their debut album, featuring all new material, which will see a release August 9 2013.
ABOUT PILLAR POINT
Wrapped in vintage synthesizers, drum kits and dark slinking bass lines Pillar Point pulses with an organic heartbeat beneath a warm, analog fabric. When the vocals appear like an unhinged Ray Davies urging you to come dance, it’s an invitation you can’t refuse. Take a sunset trip out to Pillar Point and feel love like a kick drum.
ABOUT NORDIC SOUL
Sean Horton aka Nordic Soul has long been enamored with artistic expression, the creation of music, and the technology that fuses it all together, much to the benefit and evolution of the world of electronic music and the underground culture that surrounds it. His healthy obsession began at the age of 11 with the gift of his first guitar. After attending a Plus 8 party in his hometown Detroit, Sean embraced underground electronic music. Today he is best known as founder, curator and president of the Decibel Festival in Seattle.
Beyond his work with Decibel, Sean is an expert deejay, producer and performer who has been turning out dance floors since the late 90s. His emotionally charged sets are infused with live instrumentation and ripe with the mélange of organic and synthesized tones, all riding on top of heavy bass lines. A lover of many musical styles, Nordic Soul’s interest and roots in techno, house, hip hop, jazz, soul, industrial and dub contribute to his diverse musical palette.
Since Nordic Soul’s inception in 2002, he has shared the stage with an eclectic cross section of international talent, including Bassnectar, Moby, Major Lazer, Grimes, Boys Noize, Scuba, RL Grime, Simian Mobile Disco, Modeselektor, Trentemoller, Four Tet, Darkside, The Orb, Moodymann, Green Velvet, Moderat, Gui Boratto, Monolake, Kevin Saunderson, Mount Kimbie, Matthew Dear, Scuba, Theo Parrish and Motor City Drum Ensemble. Sean has also performed at several major festivals world-wide, including Dimensions (Croatia), MUTEK (Montreal), Communikey (Boulder) and Decibel (Seattle).
Nordic Soul has released music on a wide variety of labels including K Records, Buttermilk Records, Peloton and Basic_Sounds. He’s also a resident DJ for Decibel Festival / Decibel Events and the infamous Studio 4/4 weekly at Seattle’s premier nightclub Q.
