Spend Halloween with the Multitalented Pell at Rough Trade NYC

October 30th, 2017

After Hurricane Katrina hit, Jared Pellerin and his family left New Orleans for Jackson, Miss., and he began making beats, allowing him to make friends, gain confidence and eventually begin performing, which continued while at Mississippi State University. Pellerin ultimately decided to halt his studies and after putting out several singles as the rapper-singer-songwriter-producer Pell, he self-released Floating While Dreaming (stream it below) in 2014. “The 22-year old rapper and singer has a distinct style that blends the old with the new,” said Hip-Hop DX. “He is a storyteller, weaving his life experiences with melodic beats. The album’s title describes how he lives his dreams and inspires others to chase their own.” Pell (above, performing “Runaway”) has remained busy ever since, putting out singles, collaborating with the likes of G Eazy and Big Gigantic and honing his live performances. And to that end, in mid-tour form, Pell comes to Rough Trade NYC tomoroow night. Brooklyn rapper Jimi Tents opens the show.

Dance with Louis Futon at Tomorrow’s Late Show at Mercury Lounge

April 14th, 2017

“Don’t let their punny name (and boyish good looks) fool you, the Philly-based duo of Tyler Minford and Logan Zoghby make seriously good music—a refreshingly funky blend of R&B, jazz and more electronically inclined elements,” raved Interview a couple of years back. Minford has since gone solo, creating official remixes for big names like Mos Def, Logic, G-Eazy, Future and Wiz Khalifa. But he insists that “genres don’t define me.” An eponymous EP (stream it below) arrived two years ago. “Philly producer Louis Futon has dropped off his self-titled EP, and simply put—it’s quite good,” said Hypebeast. “The electronic producer delivers on four original and undeniably entertaining tracks, as three remixes also join the party.” He’s been working on new material, and you can see him at the late show tomorrow at Mercury Lounge. NYC singer-songwriter Sam Setton opens.

Louis Futon Brings the Party to Rough Trade NYC on Saturday Night

April 29th, 2016

Heavily influenced by hip-hop (plus jazz and R&B)—and straight out of Philly—producer Louis Futon’s been bringing his electronic beats across the country for only a couple of years, but he’s already done official remixes of big names like Wiz Khalifa, Future and Kanye West and Logic. Somehow using melodies, electronic tones and drums, he’s been able to make music that doesn’t easily fit into one genre. In fact, he’s got “Genres don’t define me” on his Facebook page. Last year he released a seven-track eponymous EP (stream it below), impressing blogs across the land. Earmilk succinctly put it: “Louis Futon destroys it with self-titled EP.” And fresh off dates with Big Gigantic, he brings his dance party to Rough Trade NYC tomorrow night. Join the party.
