Fhloston Paradigm: An Evening in the After
July 28, 2017 10pm @ National Sawdust
Building on his wildly successful 2011 album Fhloston Paradigm, DJ King Britt presents a live performance of the sequel: “After…”. A sucker for the soundworlds of old science fiction, Fhloston Paradigm was King’s electronic, afro-futurist take on the “Fhloston Paradise”, known best in the film The Fifth Element. The new album, “After…” is the continuation of the story the feeling of ascension through primal, polyrhythmic energy. For this special live presentation of the new album, King (electronics) will be joined by Ryat (electronics/vocals), Stephanie Yu (violin), Tim Motzer (guitartronics), Pia Ercole (vocals/electronics), Jacqueline Constance (vocaltronics) and a few surprises!
“…Life” featuring Pia Ercole
“King Britt’s future forward project Fhloston Paradigm has been his focus since 2012. The inaugural full album of this project, The Phoenix, debuted on the dynamic label Hyperdub in 2014. Organically over the past five years, this project has seen various incarnations in prestigious places including the MoMA PS1 (NYC), MoCAD (Detroit), XOYO (London), and Womb (Japan). Fhloston Paradigm has also received humbling and beautiful reviews by respected press including The Wire, Pitchfork, and FactTV. King Britt’s new album After… is the continuation of the story… ascension and polyrhythmic primal energy through unexpected process.”
