Philipp Gorbachev, the Russian musician and DJ, has been throwing killer parties and making some of the most innovative and exciting dance music to come out of Moscow in years. In 2014 he released his debut album Silver Album but when invited to perform a live Boiler Room he had something else in mind: a band scenario. The resulting concoction was not something locked into a 4/4 beat but rather a much more organic, groove-based sound with funk-strutting bass lines and live drums that rolled and flurried around the beats and squelchy synths that jumped around leading the charge of the songs along with Gorbachev’s Damo Suzuki-like vocals.
Taking that experiment into the studio, ‘I Don’t Give a Snare’ is a wild ride that jumps genres, switches paces and alters tones frequently. The band, consisting of Philipp Gorbachev (percussion, vocals), Marco ‘Skinny Bones’ Rivagli (Drums) and Kevin ‘Bucket’ (Bass Guitar) will be joined by very special guests during the open air event in the summer garden of Chalet this Thursday, June 8th. Peruvian and Jamaican food trucks will serve tasty food on sight.
