KRadio – Gunnar Lockwood – LIVE

This week we are proud to feature a LIVE set by Seattle’s own

Gunnar Lockwood

Witnesses of Gunnar Lockwood’s live performances have asserted that this is in fact techno as it should be: somewhat raw, immediate, on-the-fly, and almost primitive. But it’s precisely the primitive part of the brain that needs stimulation so that people may be coaxed into dancing nameless, never-before-seen dances. It encourages the kind of injury sustained from overly enthusiastic lovemaking. It’s the untying, retying, and then severing of knots. It’s like popping bubble wrap with your genitals.

“These are not the same five tracks you’ve been hearing all month” to quote Mix Architekt. He continues, “The tunes are fresh, original creations, setting you apart from typical dj stuff.”

Gunnar’s background in punk and experimental music along with his quiet, fifteen year bedroom evolution as a techno producer have combined into what you hear: a grand, sweeping, rhythmic, explosive mess of surprises and joy. Having recently contributed as a sound designer to Xfer Record’s “Nerve” software, Gunnar knows how to sculpt the sounds that make people lose control of minds, behinds, bowels, you name it.

From the “Stranger – Line Out

“Lockwood is new to me, but the tracks on his SoundCloud page impressed me with their supple, funky techno rhythms and visceral analog textures. His tracks have an elastic, ungridlike quality that’s missing from much techno.”  Dave Segal
