Multimedia artist Kero from Detroit, MI will launch Ramp Chicago’s new residency at Debonair, unleashing his hyper-technical brand of deconstructed genre-bending electro-IDM. Resident DJs Emulsion and Liz Revision support along with resident visualist Spiderback and guest Tesia K. In the same way Ramp has always focused on the dual representation of live video and live PA, Kero works sonically and visually as a musician, designer, and live video artist and provide the perfect introduction to Ramp’s new monthly home.
Kero has previous releases on labels like Ghostly International, Shitkatapult, Neo Ouija and his own imprint, Detroit Underground. Serving as both a record label and art+party collective in Detroit and indsor ON, DU has released remixes and original tracks by artists like Richard Devine, Jimmy
Edgar, and Venetian Snares. With a new release on the analog-electro diva Andrea Parker’s ouchin’ Bass label, 2ADVNCD4U, Kero further progresses his sound and builds on his international reputation.
All of Ramp’s residents are original content producers while being skilled at manipulating work in the live environment. Emulsion’s DJ sets stretch from IDM and ambient to dubby techno and forward-thinking electro while Liz Revision chooses between glitchy minimal techno and melodic IDM.
Resident VJ Spiderback mixes his own visual material live in response to the music, and has invited Tesia K to share her take on video mixing.
