Workshop Description - Beat Camp Main Stage
Sat Oct 18 - 4:00pm
Curses will be talking producing while on tour, using portable recorders for sampling & harnessing creativity on the road. He’ll also be covering making a song in a day, testing it out that night in the club and hitting the studio for a proper mix down.
Curses is the mysterious side project of New York based producer and DJ Luca Venezia. Through Curses, Luca is moving away from his Drop the Lime bass and rockabilly style and is exploring his passion for deep house and nu-disco.
Curses was originally an Instibubes (RIP) artist back in 2008 and to most had disappeared. Fast forward 5 years to Spring 2013 and a series of after after hour parties in Brooklyn NY, inspired Curses to rise again.
“I was going to a lot of after-hours parties in Brooklyn and loved it. It inspired me to go to the studio and suddenly I had a whole bunch of new songs. Next thing I was djing at different parties around New York and just loved it. It was at that point when I knew Curses was coming back.”
And Curses has hit a nerve. With his first proper appearance at this years Miami Winter Conference, the first single SO GOOD became an instant anthem.He sent the track to a few friends and suddenly the song was being played on Radio 1. Seven times in two weeks. On top of that Heidi asked for a DJ mix for Radio 1 as well as long- time friend Skream.
Meanwhile back in the US, Tensnake was about to begin his first ever full North American tour with Curses in support. A strong friendship was formed and the tour was a huge success from start to finish. Follow up singles ‘Watch & Do’ and ‘Deliver’ saw Curses expand his fan base massively and end 2013 on a huge high. With EP’s lined up for Let’s Play House and Throne Of Blood you can expect 2014 to be an exciting year for the Brooklyn native.
Curses will also be headlining the Beat Camp Red Bull After Party at Calgary's HiFi club later that day and your registration for Beat Camp will get you free entry.
