IT presents a new kind of party with the launch of it’s new sublabel, Eye Teeth. To celebrate the release of the first record on Eye Teeth we are bringing in two of the finest underdog lifer ultra heads in America to man the decks, true visionaries that live and breathe this music, whose sets will rock the floor and your mind. This night will give a new perspective beyond the hype and stereotypes and get back to what matters about this music. Freedom of the mind and of the ass.

TEETH-1 will be available at the show.

TEETH-1 information:
Eye Teeth, the new techno sublabel of Interdimensional Transmissions, launches with an EP from Israel Vines. We started this sublabel as way of exploring pure and experimental techno in an entirely contemporary context (where IT often uses historical lenses and a wider musical context). This is Techno from Detroit and America, not Detroit Techno. We would like to see American Techno evolve, and this new imprint is an attempt to be a catalyst in that arena.

We launch this label with what we consider to be an anthem, “WWKD.” This is a special sound system Techno and Bass hybrid that works in many contexts. It has the funk but is black leather tough. The B Side features some Deep Techno and Ambient tone exploration.

We will follow this EP with another EP from Israel featuring new material alongside remixes from Silent Servant and BMG. This EP was mixed with the help of Juan Mendez.

Karl Meier has long been working on the fringes of electronic music, but every record he makes is well worth owning. His 12"s as The Great Traitor (Remnant) and Kalon (Sandwell District), hinted at the greatness of his current project, Talker, who released on Regis' Downwards imprint last year. Very few if any DJs out there can match Karl's encyclopedic knowledge of all music. By all accounts, his recent set at Berghain brought the place to it's knees. We can't wait to hear what he has in store for us tonight.

Israel Vines is from literally everywhere, having spent formative rave years in Detroit, working at Gramaphone in Chicago, and now living and working in Los Angeles. He first made an impact with his label Borrowed Language, doing a number of split EPs and collaborations with Jeff Pietro, where the two created a strange combination of thunderous Birmingham Techno and modern Bass Music. Vines has also released on Cult Figures and Semantica with upcoming work on Horizontal Ground, while providing remixes for Erika, Makaton, and Stave. In addition to his expansive DJ sets, he is currently collaborating with Chicago artist Kit Geary as KGIV.
