Additional Information

If experimental electronic music is the name of your game, have we got an event for you as we host the Portals travelling showcase.  The PORTALS mission is to be a “refuge for emerging talent, for the young artist who may have no other place to be heard, for music that is better than its ability to seem cool.”  Electronic production duo SUPREME CUTS return to the Bottle to celebrate the release of their brand new LP Whispers in the Dark – an effort that already has obsessed fans from across the interwebs.  XLR8R claims “one could practically cough on the dense, atmospheric production SUPREME CUTS exhibits,” and the FADER describe their sound as like “they’re trying to figure out footwork through a cloud of smoke and squinted eyes” – in case you didn’t pick up what they’re putting down, shit is thick.  Pitchfork praises young producer MISTER LIES for making “the kind of warm, 4 a.m. downtempo electronic music that carries lineage in the work of BURIAL and MASSIVE ATTACK.”  Earlier this year he released a collaborative EP, Mass with fellow Chicago producer, who joins him here tonight, DIFFERENT SLEEP and his debut LP full of skipping beats and goopy sauna-hop, Whispers in the Dark saw release on Dovecote earlier this month.  Bring your Visine and show up early tonight’s exploration of the best in upcoming Chicago electro rounded out by a DJ set from THE DRUM and live sets from DIFFERENT SLEEP and SOLEMAN.
