We are proud to invite you to the 4th Shalom Salon's PBD monthly event!
Piano Bass Drum is an experimental music night set out to explore the potential of live piano in electronic dance music. The format works with real-time composition, and welcomes the likes of anyone with an open mind and willingness to experiment.
This month the format sets out to push the envelope by inviting two Hip-Hop artists from esteemed label Mummed Records. The event will see how live piano can enrich Hip-Hop beats, and open the session to more than just electronic and techno rooted genres.
9 PM - 10:15 PM - Torky Tork
10:15 PM - 11:00 PM - Barrio (Paris)
Torky Tork & Barrio (Paris) - Mummed Records Takeover
Shalom Salon has been diverting its audience with multiple instances and "sub-labels" over the years. The latest stone throw baby of ours is called Mummed Records and spearheaded by Torky Tork and the Ashrafs, a secret facebook society. Mummed Records is dedicated to undercover downbeats, boom bap and heavily sample based Hip Hop grooves. As a special treat we invited Barrio a like-minded beat-producer from Paris to play with us.
Both beatmakers will be meeting our PBD Allstar Pianist and work out interpretations of their favorite beats. Another experiment in the world of piano bass music.
Torky Tork has become a not to mis producer name in the German Hip Hop scene. He has also been collaborating in projects with Audio88 & Yassin on their chart breaker, Suff Daddy and at his latest project with rapper Doz (Doz 9).
Barrio is based in Paris and a sidechaining giant. Next to his own imprint Plexus Records, he has been releasing on the new age power house Cosmonostro. He is part of the band MyNina with quirky infinite autotune orgies. A true texturist. We are proud to have him over and headline our night.
