Interstellar Improvisations: Outerspaceways Inc. (Sneak Peek)

A hypnotic jam from Outerspaceways Inc, a live free-form experimental group playing a variety of genres from space jazz to heavy funk. all members took part in the last Spoken Herb event, and are ready to brew something new for tomorrow. Take a closer look on this group by clicking the video below!

Playing off the Bass: Bent Lynchpin

Recorded over a whirlwind, 2-day session, Fred Sandoval (guitar), Mark Zero (bass), Malek Lopez (Keys) and Caliph8 (MPC) put together material for their upcoming album.  In this video, the quartet’s sound is driven by Mark Zero, which culminates in an otherworldly break by Caliph8 at about the 3:30 mark.  Malek and Fred perfectly compliment the group to produce a sound wholly unique unto themselves.

Events: Subflex (Imrov Ensemble)

Subflex‘s last installment of 2011 just may be its most eclectic, and that’s saying a lot considering the event encourages experiments in musical improvisations.  A tabla, xylophone, some MPCs and self-made instruments will be around this time and B-Side will once again play host to this melting pot of brewing music madness.  Make sure to keep December 7th (Wednesday) free if you want to be part of this event that will surely leave you mindblown.

Looking Ahead: Malek

Sound designer.  Composer.  Arranger.  Producer.  These are some words that accurately describe one Malek Lopez.  As part of Rubber Inc., Malek is also one of the pioneers of IDM and Electronic music here in the country.  Oh, and did we mention that he’s a standup guy gracious enough to invite us over to his very own Sweet Spot Studios and have a few words with us?  Watch out for our feature coming next week!
