Interesting experience last week Thursday got to photograph RJD2 and Applied pressure at the Belmont. This was my 3rd time to see him. Great show people were really digging the Applied Pressure opening. Boom Baptist, Kidd Slyce and Hobo D were ridiculous, their visuals are always top of the line Continue reading
CLICKS AND WHISTLES will be at APPLIED PRESSURE this Wednesday 7.18.2012 at Barcelona night club. The bass will be hitting hard and the Applied pressure crew will be tearing it up Boom Baptist, Hobo D and you never know who else will be there. As well as some of the best visuals in town, the Applied Pressure crew’s reputation has been growing quickly due to its involvement in promoting and playing at the last two shows at the Belmont featuring Z-Trip and RJD2. So Clicks and Whistles. Show starts at 10pm. Drinks at Barcelona are always affordable so no need to pregame too hard. Get there early with a $5.00 cover and the FIRST 30 in the door, receiving a card stock quality show poster… you never know it might sell out. Continue reading

COM TRUISE Presented by: Applied Pressure & Broken Teeth 4/20, 4:20, 420!!!
Com Truise is one of the many personas of producer and designer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York and operating out of a 12’-overrun apartment in Princeton, New Jersey. An admitted synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom heavy style he calls “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk”.
Haley’s been making music on the side for roughly a decade—going through pseudonyms like toothbrushes (Sarin Sunday, SYSTM, Airliner)—first as a DJ, and currently, as an excavator of softer, window-fogging synth-wave. Continue reading
So this is my first posting of SXSW photos I know it may be a little late, but since SXSW things have gotten a little crazy. If SXSW wasn’t crazy enough it seems that the craziness has not ended. I guess its the spring time crazies. Applied Pressure did it real big the Monday of the week that started SXSW music 2012. The ND had Robot Koch, Eliot Lipp, B Bravo and Starship Connection. It was one of the most fun nights I had of the whole 15 day experience. I never knew I could go out for 15 days in a row pretty much from Monday to Monday or maybe that is 14 days im not sure it’s hard to count. But pretty much I’d never seen so many of my friends having so much fun in one place. I’m very excited about the next 2 Applied Pressure shows they are doing 4/18 with Eprom and Mad Classy at Barcelona followed by 4/20 with Com Truise and Broken Teeth click here for Applied Pressures facebook make sure to like them for the ultimate in future music experiences. We will be having an interview with Patrick Murray soon on Collective Perspectives. See all the photos from the SXSW Applied Pressure HERE Continue reading
Next week SXSW 2012 will be a good week if your an Eliot Lipp fan. He will be playing at least 2X’s. Monday and tuesday, 3/12 and 3/13
