Because here at Mapzzz we truly love and believe in our city of Oakland, we are going to keep the FREE Easy Bay Wednesday train moving along strong with our next night planned for Wednesday, May 9th featuring the burgeoning SF producer Giraffage and the East Bay’s own textural head-wrapper Kouta live at Era in Oakland’s Uptown district. For those unfamiliar with our esteemed guests for the evening, we suggest giving Giraffage’s slick forthcoming single with production phenom xxyyxx, “Even Though“ a quick spin—we think you’ll agree its the kind of smooth, soulful endeavor that will complement a Wednesday evening perfectly. And, as anyone who has followed along with our humble blog here for a while now, you should be well aware that Kouta’s gorgeous Orinda EP was one of our favorites of last year, not to mention the man’s latest water-logged foray—a split EP with Lotide that popped up just a few weeks back. Futhermore, we’ve enlisted two of our core compatriots, the bliss-hop hero Shortcircles and head Mapzzz-maker Glenn Jackson, for a pair of all-vinyl sets to fill out the night. As always, this night of forward-thinking beats is entirely FREE to any and all, so come help support creative electronic music in Oakland. Full details can be found here.
