Allies For Everyone will be performing live at the “Cut Rugs Not Lines” party during this year’s CMJ. The event will take place on October 19, 2012 at Ella Lounge in the East Village. Joining him will be Basement Batman, Computer Magic, and Kinetics & One Love.
Don’t miss this chance to experience for yourself the sound of Allies For Everyone, which is evocative of the deep house movement that’s sweeping the nation, overlain with a wash of synth pop. The live performance is an engaging aural experience, showcasing all of Brian Suarez’s many musical talents.
Allies For Everyone (aka singer/songwriter/producer and DJ Brian Suarez) released his new EP “Scavenger” on Kid Recordings on July 10, 2012. The four track EP serves as a follow-up to 2011’s EP “Hour of the Wolf” and includes the title track as well as Move When I Run.
Allies For Everyone is a startling departure into a land of lush, layered, and disturbingly infectious musical complexity, a new sound that will be a friend to both your days and nights. Allies For Everyone has that rare ability to command a dance floor while simultaneously pulling at your heart strings. It’s dreamy electro pop with a wash of deep house, creating a sound that’s as sultry as it is breezy. The title track Scavenger is made up of a driving rhythm and percolating keyboards, which underscore the tale of someone who has made an enemy out of everyone they know. Move When I Run has a captivating deep house bassline, with an overlay of luxurious sounding vocals.
The live performance is an engaging aural experience, showcasing all of Brian’s many musical talents. His sound is evocative of the deep house movement that’s sweeping the nation, heard through artists like Junior Boys, Benoit and Sergio, Wolf + Lamb, Bag Raiders, and Jamie Jones. Comparisons have also been drawn to artists such as Pet Shop Boys, Kelley Polar and Fad Gadget, but in many ways, his sound evokes references to an array of artists without sounding like anyone in particular. It’s his penchant for slightly melancholic, introspective and melodic sounds that heavily recall the later golden age of synth-pop.
Allies For Everyone created the soundtrack for the Elle Magazine Jean Paul Gaultier Retrospective featuring Coco Rocha remixing his own Hour of The Wolf. Earlier this year, he was tapped to remix fellow NYC-based electronic duo Automagic’s new single Iris alongside Juan MacLean, Best Mate, and Richard Morel.
Scavenger tracks include:
3. Move When I Run
