Liz Revision: “March Mixness” [Glitchy Minimal Techno]
Liz Revision is the DJ incarnation of Chicago wunderkid Liz McLean Knight. Already well established as a live performer under the name Quantazelle, and owner of “geek boutique” and nerdy hipster fashion destination, Fractalspin.com, Knight had naturally expanded her resume, taking on the role of DJ and continuing her passion as a promoter and advocate of forward-thinking electronic music.
With multiple Chicago-based local residencies and a slew of one-off gigs throughout the years, Ms. Revision has made her impact felt on the local dance music scene, with her unique blend of minimal techno, glitchy house and IDM, not to mention her penchant for exuberant dancing behind the booth and genuinely passionate demeanor regarding the artists she promotes and supports. These talents have earned her opening slots for such up and coming acts as Lee Curtiss, Noah Pred and Ghostly International’s Tycho, but also slots alongside established talents such as Background/ATC/Yore mastermind Andy Vaz and Traum/Trapez’s Oliver Hacke*.
Despite her many identities and hectic schedule there’s no doubt you will soon find her in a DJ booth near you or vehemently supporting artists she thoroughly believes in.
* Liz insists on the annotation “his music is great and his DJ sets are awesome! and he’s a super cool guy.” Not that anyone else she’s played with isn’t awesome or cool.
