Kicking off the month of JULY, 2013, STUNNA presents another very special installment of 'THE GREENROOM.' For this edition, we're treated to an exclusive guest mix from CHICAGO production duo QUADRATIC.
QUADRATIC crafts dance floor oddities, combining classic computer music with the outskirts of drum ‘n' bass, DETROIT electro and CHICAGO footwork. Since their first EP release in 2008, the long-simmering collaboration of COLIN HARRIS and CHRIS WIDMAN has impressed CHICAGO crowds as they've opened for and supported acts such as DAEDELUS, GIRL UNIT, HUDSON MOHAWKE, KODE9, RUSKO, DISTANCE, KING CANNIBAL, ISOLEE, OTT, LORN and BLOCKHEAD. HARRIS is an agile developer who spent many hours of his youth tweaking lines of code, playing with music trackers (and guitars), and pumping hours of BASSDRIVE out of his computer subwoofer. Graduating from a CASIO SK5 to FRUITY LOOPS to ABLETON LIVE, HARRIS has transformed his programming skills to adapt custom devices for live performance. WIDMAN is best known as a DJ, promoter and long-time host of the CHICAGO radio program 'ABSTRACT SCIENCE' on WLUW 88.7FM. Over the years, he has shared the bill with a diverse cast of underground luminaries and played every type of event imaginable, from raves to operas. The duo first met in 1998 at WIDMAN’s club residency in COLUMBIA, MISSOURI, where he first encouraged, and eventually, invaded HARRIS’ music projects: WIDMAN’s experience as a DJ and drummer complementing HARRIS' sense of melody and technical dexterity. The result is QUADRATIC.
QUADRATIC just released their latest EP, "BETWEEN THE CRACKS" on DROIDSONG RECORDINGS. They'll also be opening up for SQUAREPUSHER, Friday, July 5 at the THE METRO, CHICAGO. CHRIS WIDMAN's radio show 'ABSTRACT SCIENCE' airs Thursdays, 10pm-Midnight on WLUW 88.7FM CHICAGO. WIDMAN will also be DJing with AtomTM (aka Senor Coconut) at SMART BAR, CHICAGO July 27 and with the other 'ABSTRACT SCIENCE' DJs August 12, opening for ULRICH SCHNAUSS at LINCOLN HALL, CHICAGO.
