Stateless - 2/24/06 - Photos and Audio!


The third installment of Stateless Version 2 comes to you 3/25/06 (again on a saturday). We are a featured act in the Third Annual Dhamaal Sights and Sounds Festival. I will be away for the weekend but the lineup looks stellar:

DJ Tomas Palermo, DJ Warp and Radiohiro (from Chicago), DJ D. Wurker

and as the live act: MC Rai w/ Jef Stott and additional percussionist (with kit drum set up)

Back to the blog posting...

Yes Yes Bredren! Another wicked round of Stateless has come and gone. Thanks to all that showed up for a night of diverse sounds...

(1) special agent k - opening set

The special agent k brought in his trusty (and newly repaired!) analogue delay box for this round of heavyweight sounds, dubbing out his set live (with some nice, new samples from "Life in Debt"). He started out with some sublow sounds, progressed through some roots and steppers, took a turn through some bhangra, and ended with some dubstep, breaks and drum and bass! No pictures of him, but see above for a photo of L'emiere who dropped some melodica and live percussion over his set... And here is the audio and a playlist to match!

The headliners played a diverse and unique set - with Maneesh on the turntables, Ferhan dropping some wicked tabla bhols, and MC Daddy Frank toasting and freestyling over the mix...
