This month's delicately triumphant return of Exberliner Wednesdays at Kaffee Burger features a couple of knob-twiddling emoters; grandfathers of the current trend of art-damaged hip hop. It all goes down Wednesday, August 24, 21:00.
The utterly ubiquitous Infinite Livez – an usher at the ICA during his London days – mutates his tracks, while live-sampling in an ever-changing manner as he raps and sings with a mournful keen. And early light in the UK hip-hop scene, he's turned his back on bling for something stranger and oft melancholic.
Wynton Kelly Stevenson also brings modernity's blues, with his sad and savage mouth harp. Another mixer-looper, like I.L., he transforms his tracks as they alter us.
As always, DJ Shiner plays clean-up, spinning state-mandated youth Schlager deep into the malfunctioning morn. A trifecta of the troubled.
