randydeshaies Posted October 18 Report Share Posted October 18 -- Sunday, October 22, 2006 --KARL ALMARIA (Chicago)Bunchlox Music :: Hudd Traxx :: Guess Who? :: Red Brunette :: Epiphic opening set by:WALT ZINK (Boston)Karl Almaria loves a wide range of music, but living in Chicago almost all of his life has given him the opportunity to witness the evolution of house music over the years from its local early stages to the worldwide sound it is now. Today, Karl can be found not only enjoying house music, but living it as well. Whether itâ€™s spinning alone, at a bar for 15 people or at an event for 1500 people, Karl is simply a DJ at heart that enjoys it all. â€œYeah, thereâ€™s nothing like creating a vibe and connecting with a receptive crowd â€¦ but thereâ€™s also something special about connecting with the music alone.â€ Karl also heads up house record label, Bunchlox Music. The imprintâ€™s consistent quality releases have quickly created an international following. Bunchlox tracks have received DJ support from house heavyweights such as Diz, DJ Heather, East Coast Boogiemen, Mark Farina, and Miles Maeda. Like DJing, Karlâ€™s great ear for music has been successful in selecting the best of both established and up-and-coming producers. Bunchlox Music has been one of the first labels to sign artists such as Avondale Music Society, Jake Childs, Jazzy Eyewear, Jonn Hawley, Sound Republic, and Southern Roots. â€œIf itâ€™s good, itâ€™s good â€¦ and people will feel it, no matter whose name is on the record.â€ Along with DJing and running Bunchlox, Karl has recently been focusing on production. With only a few years in the studio, his original tracks and remixes are already appearing in big name DJ sets (including Derrick Carter, Diz, DJ Heather, Mark Farina, and Raoul Belmans) and have become the subject of track IDs in many underground house circles. Karl has been signed for several releases (Hudd Traxx, Guess Who?, Red Brunette) and has been working on many more. â€œNever thought that I would ever say this, but I might enjoy producing just as much as I enjoy DJing.â€ Enjoying the music more than ever, Karl is showing no signs of slowing down. Be on the lookout, as Karl Almaria and Bunchlox Music are two names you will continue to hear much more from in the future!www.bunchlox.comOCT--------------------------------------10.22.06 KARL ALMARIA (bunchlox, grizzled) ChicagoWALT ZINK Boston 10.29.06 MASSIMO DACOSTA (vernon & dacosta, lowdown, oae) Belgium ROLLAND ESS (Marz, bump) NOV--------------------------------------11.05.06 JIMPSTER (freerange records) UK SERGIO SANTOS (marz, bump) 11.12.06 BONS (bon johnson, inuendo records, detour) Boston RYAN OBERMILLER (red door, marz, bump) NH11.19.06 OLIVIER DESMET (amenti music, aroma) San FranciscoCHRIS GRANT (jackin tracks, dae) Chicago11.26.06RYAN KICK (lodge johnson, massive audio) Albany NYROLLAND ESS (marz, bump)DEC--------------------------------------12.03.06 JAY WEST (flavor, lowdown, guesthouse) Argentina RYAN OBERMILLER (red door, marz, bump) 12.10.06 LITTLEMEN (mobile trax, drop, amenti) Boston ROLLAND ESS (marz, bump)more to come...
