A Camp Bisco Playlist
Camp Bisco is the founding father of American live electronica festivals. Hosted by The Disco Biscuits, the festival, now in its 11th incarnation, is held at the Indian Lookout Country Club. In addition to multiple Bisco sets, the festival regularly hosts a wide variety of the finest in live and DJ electronica. Multiple activities, such as the Camp Bisco Color War, are available to keep the fans entertained during downtime, and the presence of the Hells Angels (ILCC is a biker resort) keeps the grounds and audience extremely safe and nitrous-free. As with previous years, there will be multiple labels (Ninja Tune, Fools Gold, Owsla) curating performances from their artist rosters.
Amon Tobin “ISAM”
The stalwart Ninja Tune DJ brings his new multimedia experience, ISAM, to Camp Bisco for a headlining performance. Combining his cinematic compositions with breathtaking visuals, ISAM is a unique multi-sensory experience.
One of the premiere artists on Flying Lotus’s label Brainfeeder, Thundercat is the brainchild of up and coming bass phenom Steve Bruner, featuring his brother Ronald Bruner, Jr. (Kenny Garrett, Suicidal Tendencies) on drums.
Craze is a multiple-DMC winning DJ who has since turned his attention from battle scratching to scratch-inflected EDM. He may be the single most technically capable DJ in the modern dance music field.
A musical partnership between Freekbass and Tobotius, Freekbot combines programmed beats with live bass and scratching to create a unique and virtuosic take on dance music.
Rubblebucket “Breatherz (Young As Clouds)”
Brooklyn-based 8-piece Rubblebucket combines a powerful horn section with minimalist dance music compositions in the vein of Talking Heads and Brazilian Girls.
