Filastine live at The Cove Feb. 17th 2011
Yes, this is delayed.. But I’ve been busy with school and this is worth posting! This was the most excellent electronic set I’ve seen live yet! Really a bit of many genres spanning from hip-hop to ethnocore to dubstep to broken world beats and everywhere in between. Combining live sample control through samplers and drum pads with live percussion including an amplified shopping cart, Filastine knows how to perform very, very well and creatively, while mixing some of the freshest beats you won’t hear from any ordinary DJ. Filastine has created a collage of musical flavors from all over the world. His visuals were excellent as well; very near-apocalypse-esque!) I was able to pick up both his albums Dirty Bomb and Burn It (the recordings are equally amazing) and exchange a friendly thank you for the overall experience and a new official musical role model.
Filastine is comprised mostly of Grey Filastine, a Barcelona-based artist who can mostly be found traveling around the world and djing from a shopping cart in the hippest clubs in the country.
