SBK | live & DJ | 05.13.2006



...



On May 13, 2006, COSMIC BABIES present[ed]  SBK - live & DJ

The owner and founder of Avalanche Records and Slope Records, Sebastian Krueger is one of the most requested producers, DJs, and live acts in the international psychedelic progressive trance scene. Under the names Bushbumpas, Tarsis, SBK, Kruger & Coyle, and others, he has released more than 130 tracks on 12 LPs and has played them in almost every corner of the world.
His tracks and remixes have been featured on almost every major psychedelic label in the world, including, to name only a few: Spirit Zone, Global Trance Network, Spiral Trax, Transient, Free Form Records, AP Records, Green Ant Records, Yellow Sunshine Explosion, Leguan Records and others. Some internationally renowned international DJs like John '00' Flemming are consistently featuring SBK in their sets.
This will be his FIRST appearance in Canada, giving Toronto the opportunity to hear his new sound, encompassing the best elements of progressive house and deep psychedelic trance, in an exclusive live set.

SBK's more recent work includes the following impressive releases:

SBK - Treibstoff (2001, Spirit Zone)
This is SBK's first solo effort and the result was an instant classic in the vein of the German minimal progressive sound. Most people in the psy-trance scene will recall the summer hit "Morgenlatte" and all of its various remixes. This track alone was a huge influence in defining the sound of what would become the sub-genre of "morning progressive" at psychedelic festivals throughout Europe.
SBK - Hertzattacke (2002, Spirit Zone)
After the smash success of "Morgenlatte", SBK followed it up with a slightly harder-hitting album. Still with the percussive elements of before, he upped the ante with a few morning dancefloor smashers, and kept the rest of the tracks in the percussive vein. Standout tracks that have appeared on psychedelic compilations include Retro and Demosong. This last track will get tired morning crowds on their feet in no time.
Tarsis - Evolve (2002, Nova Tech) 
This album marks the beginning of SBK's journey into sublime psychedelic progressive tapestries. Evolve has it all with groovy progressive rythms, super clean and intelligent percussion and subtle dreamy ambient accents. This really is one of those lesser appreciated early progressive gems which deserves greater attention. Standout tracks include "Lakota" and the title track "Evolve". Most of the rest of this album is simply outstanding as well.
SBK - Borderline (2004, Avalanche Records)
With this album, SBK's sound achieved a new level of dynamic style and composition. The tracks on "Borderline" exhibit SBK's new confidence to blend tribal progressive house rythms with his already impressive knack for deep psychedelic landscapes. This is definitely a new and welcome sound for the psychedelic trance faithful while also attracting attention from the other progressive genres. Standout tracks include the not-to-be-missed dance floor driver "Rubbaworm", and the deep hypnotic "Borderline" but, as with Tarsis - Evolve, the whole album is very strong.
Kreuger & Coyle - Randy Expander (2005, Acid Casualties)
Here, SBK teamed up with Greg Coyle (of Purple Lunar fame - he wrote the banger hit track "Subtle Thrust") to churn out another whole album in the percussive deep-yet-dancey style of "Borderline".

However, the addition of Greg Coyle to the mix appears to bring with it more blatant sex appeal and in-yer-face house elements. It only takes one glance at the cover art and track names to see this, and get a sense for where these guys are coming from with this release. From anyone else, you'd expect to get fun dancey house. From these guys, it transcends house with perfect percussion and incessently hypnotic psychedelic elements. Standout tracks include the genre-crossing hypnotic hit "The Witness Remix" and the intense psycho-builder "Kiwi-Rider".
V/A - Avalanche of Sound Vol. 4 (2005, Avalanche)
There isn't enough to say about this album. Plenty of great tracks here, particularly the fresh and groovy blockbuster SBK - Miles and More.
  
V/A - Deep Proggy Choons vol. 1 (2005, Slope)
This is the first compilation released on SBK's new progressive house sub-label Slope, which also features SBK's brother making his own mark with a recent release and a bunch of excellent remixes under
the moniker Philo. Check out the deep funky psychedelic journeys on tracks like SBK - Deep Down Inside and Kruger & Coyle - Love Juice.

We encourage everyone to take the time to get to know SBK's music to make the experience that much better on May 13th.

Admission is FREE and we'll be running from 10pm until late. With good turnout this will become a monthly event so spread the word and show your support.

Blackkat is a collective of artists, dancers, DJs, and activists that has been throwing parties in New York City since 1996.

We try to create a community through our events. We try to make them places where people will talk to each other, be inspired, learn something, and have fun. Our events are participatory, they are created not just by the Blackkat collective but by all the people who help us and inspire us and all the people who attend our events. That means you!
Thanks, we’ll see you out there…

NEXT OFFENSIVE SOUND STAGE
:::TEKNIVAL:::JULY 11-13, 2003:::

Absoloutely wicked party... Respect to all the soundstages that came together to make this party happen, at times it was less of a party and more of an adventure...

To everyone who was there, thank you for contributing to such a fantastic vibe. Thank you for being so responsible with the way you partied and for cleaning up after yourselves.

Just to let everyone know, the park officials came by on monday morning just to check that we had cleaned the place up and had nothing but good things to say about how responsible and organized this party was. They also said that we are welcome back to use the crown land any time we like! All the DJs spun quality music and kept the party kicking the whole weekend. Special thanks from the Next Offensive sound system goes out to all the DJs who trekked through the wilderness to spin at our stage (especially MC Stylez from Washington who walked for 3 1/2 hours along the forest access road because his ride couldn't make it down the bumpy path)

To those of you who missed this party: you should be kicking yourselves. Just look @ the pictures.

Hope to see everyone back (and more) next year...and way to MaKe SOme fUcKInG noISe!!
