Black Taffy / Metavari / Nite Beast

August 27 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

A record that would have once sparked a minor bidding war between Stones Throw and Ninja Tune, hip-hop, IDM, and ambient music – Pitchfork

Black Taffy is a Dallas based composer and performer whose current focus lies in blending ambient music with large bass and percussion. The first born son of Pentecostal music ministers, Donovan grew up witnessing the power music has to induce trance and encourage spiritual awakening. Eventually drawing parallels between christianity, voodoo and the occult, he left the former to immerse himself in the latter. Sometimes performing with a vibraphone and cassette decks, he frequently employs the use of cassette tape loops and other antiquated mediums to create pillowy worlds of wow and flutter.

Metavari is the moniker of American composer and electronic musician, Nathaniel David Utesch. Metavari’s dark, cinematic records make extensive use of nostalgic electronics and sampling; a collage of synth-laden melodies, menacing instrumentation and foley sounds.
