[as of 4/6/23]
We have just learned that tonight’s support band,  Houses Of Heaven,  won’t be able to perform tonight because of strep throat.

-from Los Angeles, CA
-For over a decade, Jess Labrador’s deeply personal work as Chasms has always felt like an unveiling. The third full-length under the Chasms name, ‘Glimpse of Heaven’ follows 2019’s meditative and moody ‘The Mirage.’ Adding to the project’s ethereal electronic pop and dub pulse, Labrador steps into new territory with an expanse of vaporous synths and samples while trading in washes of reverb for starker moments of closeness and intimacy. Skittered beats tether drifting textures, sub bass, sparse guitar embellishments, and Labrador’s delicate, airy vocals for a steady drip of creeping melancholy. ‘Glimpse of Heaven’ is a fully realized version of Chasms beyond its influences. To say that the album is a seamless evocation of such disparate sounds as Massive Attack, Sade, Seefeel and Dif Juz is to say it is wholly unique.

Houses Of Heaven
 industrial techno post-punk
-from Oakland, CA
-Layering synths, guitars, electronic percussion, and live drums, Houses of Heaven fuses early industrial and techno rhythms with the melodicism of shoegaze and a heavy dose of dub-influenced effects. With “Sightline,” they were heavily influenced by their favorite Drum & Bass records. Imagine if The Prodigy were to collaborate with Houses of Heaven and you’d have a pretty good idea of what it might sound like.

Vocalist Keven Tecon elaborates. “With breaks and live drums resampled, cut up and resequenced on a MPC 2000XL, ‘Sightline’ pays homage to drum & bass through a post-punk lens. The repetitious lyrics were inspired by the cadence of drum & bass MCs and the energy they create. We wanted to capture the feeling of chaos, connection and catharsis found on the dance floor.”

Richard Haig
-from San Francisco, CA
-Richard Haig is a San Francisco-based electronic musician who primarily focuses on a dark dance floor foundation with a sinister songwriting sheen. His recent output is club-oriented in form but excels on a stage with energetic performances featuring live vocals and occasional instrumental guests. Fans of Hot Chip, Nine Inch Nails, Maceo Plex, Röyksopp, Radiohead, and Depeche Mode would feel right at home with his output. He is equally comfortable as a performative front man on a festival stage as he is being elusively tucked away in an underground DJ booth.

Having previously released under the name Panic Bomber, Richard Haig is a Scottish-born expat who originally developed his sound in Miami. There he played in multiple touring bands and honed his DJ chops during the annual Winter Music Conference festivals. He stepped away from releasing albums for a few years and returned with a new sound in 2020 with multiple self-released albums under his own Art Heist Records label.

Richard’s previous releases include music on the UK’s Anjunadeep Records, John Digweed’s Bedrock Records, and the Canadian YYZ Records. He has composed for and performed with the New World Symphony Orchestra in 2014 and 2015. Richard has licensed music for Michael Kors and Volkswagen, and was included on an official TRAX Magazine CD (France’s biggest electronic music publication). He has ghost-produced Hype Machine Top 10 remixes of Kanye West, Metronomy, and Phantogram. As a live performer he has played alongside Skream, Skrillex, The Juan Maclean, and MGMT and appeared at festivals such as EDC, Ultra, SXSW, Electric Forest, Hudson Project, Sunfest, Pride Toronto, as well as performing on the Yo Gabba Gabba and La Roux live tours. As a DJ, he was previously a resident and partner of the Slap & Tickle Miami collective and has spun alongside Disclosure, Duke Dumont, Chus & Ceballos, Kaytranada, John Talabot, Detroit Swindle, XXXY, Aeroplane, Jackmaster, Moonboots, Jonas Rathsman, Kaskade, and Ke$ha.
