3 Artists You Must See at City Bisco

Image Courtesy of the Disco Biscuits
With City Bisco just a few short weeks away, it's important to take a look at some of the artists you'll be seeing at the Mann Center on October 5th and 6th. While The Disco Biscuits, Diplo, A-Trak, RJD2 and Paper Diamond are likely already on your must-see list, here is some information about a few other must-see artists you might not know as much about:

Ott and The All Seeing I (Live Band)
Following in the footsteps of fellow psytrance artists, Grover Smith, aka Ott, has decided to create a live band experience involving several musicians who have contributed to various Ott songs in the past. Joining Ott for this endeavor will be vocalist/guitarist Naked Nick, bassist Chris Barker, and drummer Matt White.  It should be interesting to see how this live performance contrasts with Ott's otherwise one-man DJ sets. According to their website, "the band captures all the intricate glory of Ott's electronic sets, but augments them with raw power and spontaneity which propels the songs to another level."

Ott - Squirrel and Biscuits

Ott - Mouse Eating Cheese

Nadis Warriors
The genre-defying live music spectacle known as Nadis Warriors have refined their live performance sound in the years since their inception in Austin, TX. It is clear after their recently released remix album Illuminating Inspirations, Vol. 1, that they are ready to step up their game. Citing numerous influences to their particular brand of sound, from Pink Floyd to Raja Ram, to Quantum Physics, it is clear that this will be an interesting performance to say the least.

Nadis Warriors - Cytokinesis (Cosmic Convergence)(Crown)

Stevie Wonder - Superstition (Nadis Warriors Remix)

Alpha Data
Minnesota-native James Ristvedt, better known by his on-stage persona Alpha Data, has been on the rise this year, with numerous chart-topping releases.  In addition to Electro-House, Drumstep, Lazer Bass and Glitch-Hop, Alpha Data has remixed tracks from The Flaming Lips, Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brothers Past and Madeon. His high-energy sets will get everyone in the Mann Center moving, and should not be missed.

Alpha Data - NSFW

The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. 1 (Alpha Data Remix)

Song Of The Day: Massive Attack - Teardrop (Phutureprimitive Remix)

Image Courtesy of Phutureprimitive
The enigmatic psychill producer Rain, aka Phutureprimitive has just released his remix of the classic song "Teardrop" by Massive Attack. This past spring, Phutureprimitive opened for Shpongle, and I had the pleasure of seeing him live, first at Toad's Place in Hartford, CT and then again at the House of Blues in Boston, MA, and boy did he deliver. This song, as well as his remix of "Mad World" by Gary Jules accentuated the set, which focused mainly on tracks from his most recent album Kinetik. His first album Sub Conscious was released in 2004, and was followed by his three-track Luminous EP in 2010.

Massive Attack - "Teardrop" (Phutureprimitive Remix)

After recent performances at Bella Terra Festival in Stephentown, NY and Rootwire Festival in Logan, OH, Phutureprimitive will be heading back on tour with Shpongle starting at the Canopy Club in Urbana, IL on September 21st, and finishing up with a Halloween show at Terminal West in Atlanta, GA.
