Intersection of Music and Technology

Media Title

WXPN, Little Giant Media and Philly Tech Week are teaming up for one geektastic blend of talking about the use of technology in music, then giving you actual music. For free. Yup, this diverse roster of programming and talent should provide a fascinating evening, especially for budding tech explorers who’ve started experimenting with tricks and tools. The early evening event kicks off with an hour-long Q&A with the Roots’ Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson hosted by Bruce Warren, XPN’s on-air host and program director. After some presentations by Rapgenius.com, Soulspazm Digital and theFUTURE.fm, they’ll let the performances rip. Before some climactic DJ sets, Khari Mateen will dazzle with cool production trips, Chris Powell of Man Man, who goes by Pow Pow sometimes, will dazzle the crowd with his electro-pop tricks, and then Lushlife brings his tech-savvy-assisted rap game to the mic as he tweaks samples, keyboard tones and beats. As if that weren’t enough, and if you’ve got a few dollars, now’d be the time to get a cocktail and let loose as Dave P (Making Time) and Illvibe’s DJ Phsh take control of the dancefloor. The first half of this evening might border on academe and tech nerdiness, but the second half is all about letting your hair down, putting on those dancing shoes and letting these two DJs twerk their technologies to make you sweat. / Bill Chenevert
