Untold: Unspeakably Great
UNTOLD'S BASS MUSIC IS UNSPEAKABLY GREAT
Untold (UK producer Jack Dunning) is among the most exciting musicians working in the febrile zone where future bass music and techno converge. He's part of a wave of intelligent dubstep artists who expanded their sound palettes when the genre began to sound like a 13-year-old playing with his first Roland synths. Untold's humid, tumescent tracks for important labels like Hessle Audio, Hotflush, and his own Hemlock Recordings bustle spasmodically yet elegantly into pretzel-logic rhythms, augmented by an array of odd textures. Listening to Untold is like being slammed into the future, with your own sweat easing you into unknown realms. Shelter, a new weekly at Q run by Decibel operative Cody Morrison, looks like it's going to be a valuable addition to Seattle's clubscape. With Sounds in Silence. Q, 9 pm, free, 21+.
