Earlier this year, both Seattle's curator of sublime ambiance, Rafael Anton Irisarri (a.k.a. The Sight Below, pictured above), and Berlin's heir to the minimal techno throne, Hendrik Weber (a.k.a. Pantha du Prince), released albums loved by those of us at XLR8R HQ. The two records, It All Falls Apart and Black Noise, respectively, were both rooted in the ideas of entrancing rhythms, thick aural texture, and poignant melodies, among other similarities, so it's exciting that the two solo producers will take to the road together for a string of live performances. Irisarri and Weber will start off their tour of the West Coast at The Echo in Los Angeles on September 17, before heading north to play Seattle's Decibel Festival. Before those concerts, you can download "Burn Me From the Inside Out" and "Fervent" by The Sight Below, preview and purchase the new album by Irisarri, The North Bend (out this week on Room 40), and check out all the stops on the tour below.
