PHUTUREPRIMITIVE
----------------
Phutureprimitive is the moniker of Northwest producer and song writer Rain. If you were to look at early childhood photos, you would find Rain sitting at the piano plinking keys, grinning from ear to ear.....a true sign of things to come. Continuing his early fascination with music, Rain was later drawn to electronic music, inspired by its ability to combine the best of organically played instruments and the synthetic pleasures of sounds more exotic to the human ear. After beginning a DJ career in the 90s, Rain began incorporating the music he was making in his home studio into his DJ sets. That was all it took to trigger a full blown love affair with electronic music and the process of its creation.....and Phutureprimitive was born.

Phutureprimitive music is singular and unique in its approach: Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, his music also manages to convey a sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating toward a full kinetic experience. Conceived and produced in a digital environment, his music manages to convey more humanity and organic warmth then typically found in an often cold and sterile genre. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, his music ultimately speaks to both the mind and the body. Despite electronic music's tendency to suffer a short shelf life, Phutureprimitive has already demonstrated a timeless quality with his debut album release of "Sub Conscious" on Waveform Records, which has managed to increase in sales since its release in 2004, obtaining a cult status among fans and collectors. With a string of singles released in the interim on various labels, his second full-length release is currently in production, pushing his sound into new territories of emotional electronic music.

In a direct assault against the “lone producer behind a laptop” standard of live electronic music, Rain is taking the live experience to new levels. The Phutureprimitive live show is now realized as a band featuring drums by Thaddeus Moore, bass by Joel Crane, and guitar, keyboards and vocals by Rain. The Phutureprimitive live experience breathes new life into an already sonically rich and stimulating musical offering, drawing crowds to the dance floor for a primal music experience. Constantly defying convention, the Phutureprimitive sound is not solidly rooted in any single genre nor easily defined, but draws influences from many subgenres including Downtempo , Glitch Hop, Dub, Breaks, Psychedelic Rock, and more. Phutureprimitive has become a musical force to be reckoned with, performing in cities and countries throughout the United States, and Europe including New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, England, Scotland, Portugal, Holland, Italy and Croatia.

SIMON HAIDUK - Live digital painting with artist video sneak peak

www.artbysimon.com

Growing up in British Columbia, Canada, Simon developed strong foundations in visual arts, music and an affinity with nature. In 2004 he gravitated towards painting as a full-time endeavor. As a mostly self-taught artist, Simon has explored various mediums, and subjects, with a strong influence in spiritual themes. After some time touring in art shows and festivals with a group of similarly themed artists, Simon decided to further his skills in Digital Design, graduating from Vancouver Film School in 2007. He currently works out of his studio as a freelance artist, while continuing to explore an ever-expanding palette of creative endeavors.

Artist Statement:
"Empowering my creative force is the love, respect, and understanding that all life comes from the same source which can be experienced in many ways. In my dedication to the creative process, I strive to find ways of producing work and living life that maintain harmony between the Earth and its shared inhabitants. Each creation reflects an aspect of this journey, thinning the veil between physical and non-physical realities in an unfolding awareness of that which connects us all."

Simon will be previewing a video project he is working on before the show starts at 9. Here is a description on what he is working on

Not just your average music video; this piece invites you deeper into the experience with audio visual synchronization, intended as a meditation for third eye and soul ignition, through metaphysical interpretation. The music and vocals were created first as an improvisation by Dréa Drury, followed by a visual score including motion graphics and artwork by Simon Haiduk, with an art cameo by David Heskin. These artists often create with an emphasis on exploring the relationship of sound and light to activate metaphysical aspects of our being, as well as an attempt to honour and represent our connection to Earth and the energy of spirit that connects us all.

This video is also intended as a companion to a soon to be released music album by Dréa Drury @ zoeticsound.com
