Selector Dub Narcotic and Aries European Tour / Selector Dub Narcotic y Aries de gira por Europa

EN
Selector Dub Narcotic and Aries will tour Europe together this Autumn. A series of shows aligned during October and November to present their new albums: Selector Dub Narcotic debut This Party Is Just Getting Started, released by K Records, and AriesAdieu or Die, a co-release between K Records and La Castanya.

This Party Is Just Getting Started by Selector Dub Narcotic is an exercise in ecstatic genre-smashing, blending and up-ending. Calvin Johnson of the K label and such Olympia combos as Dub Narcotic Sound System, Beat Happening, Halo Benders and most recently The Hive Dwellers has been working under the nom de plume Selector Dub Narcotic since founding the Dub Narcotic Studio in 1993.

This Party Is Just Getting Started is a collaboration with NW hip hop producer Smoke M2D6, who first began working with K producing the All Your Friend’s Friends compilation. As a member of the Oldominion crew Smoke M2D6 has produced almost every major hip hop artist in Washington and Oregon. The idea for this collaboration began with the song All for the Sake of Rhymin’ (which samples K artist Mahjongg) and snowballed into an entire album of dance pop garage soul with Calvin’s trademark melodica wafting overall.

Adieu or Die by Aries is a unique excursion into electronic: pop full of shiny harmonies, explosive beats and shimmering sounds. Isabel Fernandez is the mastermind behind it, hails from Vigo, Spain, and her third album is the first record ever sung in Spanish on the K label. Isabel toured extensively around the US, Portugal and Spain, including appaerances in festivals such as Primavera Sound, FIB Benicàssim or SXSW. Got great reviews, her looped pop melodies surrounded by electronic soundscapes have been compared to Panda Bear, Brian Eno and Grimes and this will be her first European tour.

These are the confirmed European dates so far. More to be announced!

At fourteen tracks long, it’s quite a hefty slice of pie.... It’s the kind of wild, hypnotic, beat-smothered album that would sound best as the soundtrack to a party, or some other situation where you want to feel uplifted, free and giddy as a kid after fanta and skittles.Noisey
