When: Wed., May 14, 8:30 p.m. 2014
Red Bull Sound Select hosts its monthly showcase on Wed., May 14, at the Earl with an especially left-field lineup featuring mystical underground DJ the Gaslamp Killer. Born William Benjamin Bensussen, the Gaslamp Killer cut his teeth alongside such future-beat luminaries as Flying Lotus and Nosaj Thing at the Low End Theory weekly showcase at the Airliner in Los Angeles. The San Diego native is named after his hometown’s Gaslamp bar district and his propensity for killer, off-kilter beats. After joining the roster at FlyLo’s Brainfeeder label, his glitchy, skippy, and always trippy production debuted on 2012’s Breakthrough. Atlanta’s own array of seasoned vibe-killers share the bill, including Grammy-winning saxophonist Kebbi Williams and the Wolf Pack, psych-hop group the Difference Machine, and ambient maestro 10th Letter.
