06.04.15 The Black Lodge & Moony Habits Presents:
Svengalisghost (live set) <L.I.E.S. Records /Russian Torrent Versions>
Straight outta Chicago, the sound of Svengalisghost aka Marquis Cooper is dystopian, paranoiac and "noir" that includes flawless hooks of acid, house, techno and EBM. Aesthetically influenced by the visual arts, architecture and literature (as well as disco singles by maestro Ron Hardy), a young Cooper learned to manipulate cassette tapes, old editing techniques and methods to distort sound from a turntable, creating a sound wave bordering on surrealist. A natural born artist and performer, his live shows are based on a powerful combination of sound equipment (Korg ESX, Evolver, Mopho, DX200, Mackie 1202VLZ, Electric Mo -FX) and his own voice, which penetrates his music’s granulated and reflective textures.
Santiago Salazar <ICAN Productions/UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE/Rush Hour>
Santiago Salazar aka DJ S2 started deejaying in the early '90s inspired by mix tapes his brother was bringing back from the Gay underground scene in Los Angeles. His style has always been a mixture of house and techno.
After moving to Detroit, Santiago began his music training with Mike Banks, label founder of Underground Resistance. He mixed and edited several UR releases and remixed the mighty "Return of the Dragons" and DJ Rolando's "Aguila". He released his own tracks under monikers like Aztech Sol and Seldom Seen and became a core member of the Los Hermanos and Galaxy 2 Galaxy live bands, using his DJ skills to control the flow and intensity of the live performances. Alongside long time friend Esteban Adame, Santiago recently formed Ican (short for mexican) and released a bunch of highly acclaimed 12"s both on Carl Craigs Planet E imprint as well as ICAN productions.
