Amp Live Gets Radio Station, Films Video w/ Warriors

Posted By on Tue, Jan 5, 2010 at 10:36 AM

2010 is gonna be a busy year for local producer whiz Amp Live. He has a new album coming out that I'm chomping at the bit to hear (check the first video, a great number about an android dude who steals styles called "Gary is a Robot," here). And he's just announced a new Internet radio station, Beat Driven Radio, a showcase of his work with Zion I as well as his remixes. The current Beat Driven setlist is a good way to sample his Radiohead remixes, including his revisions of "Videotape," "Nude," and "Weird Fishes."

Web radio stations are picking up steam with Bay Area producers. (Lyrics Born unveiled his towards the end of last year.) But Amp plans to expand his reach beyond his catalog, asking artists, DJs, and producers to send in tracks they want to get on his show.

Through his Twitter feed, Amp also announced today that he's getting busy filming the video for "Takeover" with the Golden State Warriors basketball team. "[Able] to do video for our song "Takeover" w the warriors basketball," he wrote. Not a shabby way to kick off a new year.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
