Rab was born. He began to experiment with sound. The back of his head fell on the ground. Sound was released from the THUMP. It was deafening and created around him the first note of Random Rab’s music.
DJ erin e
Erin E brings an ear for unique sounds to her energetic and genre-bending dj sets. Integrating global gems with sometimes heavy, sometimes heavenly percussive and melodic force, she strips back dance music to something we all can relate to. Constantly searching for the essence of the sound – be it deep & dub techno, electronic folklore, house or beyond- she cultivates a bassy dancefloor (and headphone) experience that transcends stereotype.
She is currently working on an ongoing series of place-based ‘immersive’ mixes, created and performed in wild spaces alone or with a very small crew of intimate listeners.
Playing & sampling her original live native american flute, didjeridoo, shakers and myriad of trinkets, she sneaks authentic sound into unexpected places.
Based in Santa Fe, NM, Erin E loves, above all, creating the space for a transformative, positive experience through music and creative community.
Tone Ranger (DJ Set)
Tone Ranger (AKA Alex Simon) makes immersive dance music that embodies the magnetic and supernatural beauty of the American Southwest. Blending deep house rhythms with ethereal instrumentation (lap steel, harmonica, whistling, voice), he has earned a reputation as one of the region’s most original and sought-after live electronic acts. Performances have often been described as “heart-opening,” seamlessly moving from ecstatic peaks to grounding sonic valleys. In August 2018, he released his debut EP with Jumpsuit Records, and has since opened for international acts like Quantic and Dirtwire. This evening will be a celebration of his new EP, On the Horizon, and will kick off a month-long tour throughout the Southwest.
Simon is inspired primarily by the landscape of the American West and the stories embedded in it. Though stunningly beautiful on the surface, he understands that underneath, there is deep division and a cry amongst so many of us for healing. There is a need for truth in a country where our history is largely myth and our modern social fabric is torn by lies and deceit. Crafted by exposure to the elements, an enduring sense of wonder, and that connection you can only find on the dance floor, the music of Tone Ranger exists to reignite that fire within us so that we can see each other for the radiant beings we are.
