Following the critical acclaim of last year's Shuffle Culture, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson (The Roots) returns to BAM with an all-star mash-up that celebrates the pioneering works of electronic music. DJ-composer Jeremy Ellis, R&B singer-producer Tom Krell (How to Dress Well), avant-R&B outfit Sonnymoon, and others join Grammy Award winner Questlove to sample and deconstruct seminal recordings by everyone from Robert Moog and Raymond Scott to Stevie Wonder and George Clinton into a feverishly modern new playlist. Old-school blips and beeps, sine waves, and analog synth solos mix with live vocals and contemporary electronics in this ecstatic riff on the analog revolution that paved the way for our music today.
Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
