Buku w/ Supertask + theNEWDEAL w/ Ben Silver (Official Gem & Jam Pre Party)
January 17 @ 9:00 pm to January 18 @ 2:00 am
From the track record of Robert Balotsky’s work as Buku, it’s clear that the Pittsburgh native and graduate of Music Technology is a well-equipped architect of twisted, layered soundscapes. With a menacing grasp on sound design and music theory, Buku combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, laden with resounding low-end and intricate drum patterns. With a love of drums rooted early in his childhood, his work reflects his passion for percussion laced with elements only a trained ear could produce.
With over 1400 legendary late nights, sold-out clubs and triumphant festivals under their belts, The New Deal returns with a passion in 2019 with ‘TND3’ –the third incarnation of the renowned live electronica trio: Jamie Shields (keyboards), Dan Kurtz (bass), and new drummer Davide Di Renzo.
The band’s evolution through three drummers has now brought The New Deal closer to its original direction. “With Davide, it’s a bit like ‘coming back home’, as he was the drummer that inspired our original direction back in 1998 when the three of us played an impromptu gig together in Guelph, Ontario. Each of the band’s drummers has brought something unique to The New Deal, and with Davide we’re reaching back to move forward with the organic-infused improvisation that has long-inspired a big part of The New Deal sound,” explains keyboardist Jamie Shields.
