A veteran of the Midwest electronic underground, Doubt is the new alias of a Minneapolis artist who has earned a reputation among aficionados of electronic music as one of the most inspired, engaging, and entertaining artists of his time. A true musician’s musician, he routinely reaches for unconventional elements and seamlessly blends disparate styles to create completely unique sonic experiences, which hit all of the right buttons.Doubt’s first release is on Mistress Recordings, the secret weapon sub label from DVS1 (HUSH). Remember Fono and Beauty have garnered early acclaim, featured in Mixmag and highly reviewed in Resident Advisor; “Remember Phono” pivots on a metallic swing while a mournful melody swoons in the background. “Not Before” matches its unstable core elements with a pummeling techno beat.” http://dvs1mistress.bandcamp.com/album/mistress-03 Doubt then released Chaos Om Vision I and Chaos Vision II with Midwest based boutique label Disposable Commodities. Exploring “the edges of lo-fi techno shamanism imbuing his compositions with murky grime, distortion, dissonant harmonies and the sound of decay while still maintaining versatility as a DJ weapon that can be played in the club sphere.” http://www.disposablecommodities.com/

Natology presents PSEUDO & MORPH

Featuring Jos McKain’s performance Oxidation and visuals by video artist Lindsay Scoggins. Pseudo & Morph is a meditative performance on the devolution of the human body and its ability to shift into an amorphous state. This meditation is intended to diffuse gender pairing, silhouetting a nude male and juxtaposing him against Scoggins’ signature video work. The ideas center on replication as a form of evolution, both intellectually and socially. First the art becomes you, and then you become the art. http://www.natologyproject.com/
