About

Glitch Gatsby

Hailing from the Great Lakes’ “South Shore”, Glitch Gatsby (Sam Baker) was reared on classic jazz and R&B. He began playing electric guitar late in his teenage years, effecting a style wrought from gut-bucket blues and noise punk. Shortly after his 21st birthday, Baker attended his first music festival, Electric Forest 2012, and soon thereafter formed his first band, a shoe-gaze blues band called Oprah Winfrey’s Nasty Habit. This lasted about a year before Baker left to drift out west for farm work.

Upon returning to the midwest, Baker settled briefly in his hometown Valparaiso before becoming involved in an electronic duo named The Magic Liquor Train Experience, where Baker first heard the glitch he would later take to form his sound and stage name. With his appetite now whet, Baker began hunting for the tracks that fit the sound in his head and grinding away at set after set till he could call himself a DJ and face a crowd. He took the name Glitch Gatsby and returned to Bloomington and Indiana University, where he assumed a leadership role in the local collective Bloomington Electronic, booking shows and organizing artists to try and stake a claim in the community. It was here that Glitch cut his teeth mixing tunes before a crowd, learning what works in the wild vs. what works at home.

Spring of that year, Glitch discovered that nearby Chicago had an active electro swing scene, to which he promptly paid a visit. Beneath the solid red stage lights, Glitch met local artists and organizers Vourteque and Mr. Automatic at their monthly Rouge! event in Wicker Park, below what used to be Double Door. Since then, he has been working with them on the neo-vintage blog AfterRetro and performing both at Rouge! and on the road. Glitch has since taken a brief sabbatical down south, but is now returning to the Great Lakes region to raise some mayhem.

About

lespecial

Hailed as a breakthrough act to watch in 2017, lespecial, based in Boston and upstate New York, have established themselves as innovators and tastemakers on their own unique trajectory. “Disguised as an average power trio from Boston, lespecial creeps around corners and reaches into the darkest depths of the absurd. lespecial is meticulous, creative and defiant; eclectic, multi-talented and driven. The band prides itself in extending the boundaries of musical ability, rebelliously laying waste to the limits of popular music.” (Ragin Randy Entertainment) Labeled with such unique descriptions as “dark future groove” or “death funk” to “trance metal” or “haunted house party music”, it is tough to put one’s finger on this dangerous and determined trifecta’s distinct sound. A lespecial set brings their signature blend of psychedelic metal infused funk along with deep, thumping synths and 808s that will have your hips swaying as quick as your head banging. From the band’s origins as three friends in high school in the woods of Connecticut who shared a passion for building unique instruments and hitting them with drum sticks, through studying music at a collegiate level to now running their own music school and studio, The Music Cellar, in Millerton NY, Jonny Grusauskas (guitar/synth/sampler/percussion/vocals), Luke Bemand (bass/synth/percussion) and Rory Dolan’s (drums/samples) unique chemistry is what gives them their incomparable personality. As Steve Morse, Boston Globe writer and Berklee College of Music professor, claims, “They are virtuoso players- and they really listen to each other closely, which is what raises them apart from today’s progressive wannabees”. After several, eclectic EP releases, their debut album, “Omnisquid”, released in 2015, finds the band “jumping through periods of hypnotic rhythms, catchy riffs, and synth grooves fit for a club… throw in a healthy dose of heavy metal and punk influenced guitar, and you have one of the most interesting new albums out there.” (Monkeygoose Magazine). ITDJENTS claims “For fans of King Crimson, Tool, Nine Inch Nails and Battles this is definitely the album for you”. The band’s expansive catalogue of singles and videos, including arrangements of everyone from Kanye West to Skrillex to Fela Kuti, is keeping all eyes and ears on lespecial as they prove in clubs and festivals nationwide why Relix Magazine claims “Amidst the rest of the noise, lespecial is the squeaky wheel that demands attention.”
