Turntable (Mostly DJ Olive, some Scoty Hard) and Modesky Martin & Wood and friends improve live in NYC, here are the results. Mostly instrumental music for an urbane crowd of frustrated smokers.

+1.Short. Mildly Australian “ums/ahs” artfully strung together, chants/synth
+2.mid/slow dance beat, some guitar loop
3.continues from 2. shimmer & random drum kit to jazz drum showcase
4.laptop wizardy, lots of snippets (including trumpet?), headache material
5.classical piano sample, then beats with distracting Brazillian percussion
+6.human drumming, chill jazz vibes & sax
7.factory chaos
+8.60’s hip-hop sound for country cover. Tip hat to Residents.
9.IDM sound for gospel tune. Seems like a Brit trick.
10.quiet tinkling and taps, 2nd half: drum solo
11.beat/bass loop, flute, wordless fem vocals
