Korea Town Acid - unknown excerpt

A night of avant-electronic sounds at the TONE Festival, with some locals interfacing with a pair of guests with fresh albums out on the Orange Milk label. The night proceeded from quiet drones to dancefloor grooves, with Jessica Cho providing the latter to close the night out. It's been a while since I'd seen her in action, but I'd been keeping an eye on her Korea Town Acid project, casrefully constructing dance grooves in realtime from a tableful of gear (and this was, it should be noted, the only set of the night that didn't use a laptop). Mostly aiming for dancefloor satisfaction, Cho's pieces found their groove and added subtle tweaks to maintain forward momentum — although this section, with everything getting filtered down to its static-y essence, shows there's an experimental urge powering the vibes.
