Plugged In Publicity and Full Phase Media team up with Asheville artists and producers July 11
On Saturday, July 11, Plugged In Publicity and Full Phase Media present the second installment of the ZODIAC series with ZODIAC: Moon in Gemini.
The night’s lineup includes illanthropy, Live Animals and Bassclef. Music will begin at 10:30 p.m.
Headlining the night is illanthropy. Known off the stage as Stephen Blasy, illanthropy is an Asheville, NC-based producer with more than his own agenda in mind. Several years into his DJ production pursuits, he decided that his live performances should be more than just a DJ on stage, hyping up the crowd, making the floor bounce, and being forgotten the next day. He blends big bass sounds, clear, ethereal melodies, and conscious thoughts in his production, working to inspire his crowd not only to dance, but to also try and expand their minds in a way that impacts their environment in a positive and significant way. illanthropy has performed at the New Mountain Theater, Asheville Music Hall, and the OneStop, among other venues.
Asheville native Live Animals will be direct support. Live Animals is a culmination of all of life’s experiences, exploring new soundscapes and expanding the consciousness of sound. Between his West-coast hip hop influences and his entanglements in modern bass music, Live Animals creates a sound that transcends boundaries and blends genres, creating his own space on the map of the electronic dance music scene. With a background in percussion and music theory, Asheville native Josh Stone fuses melody and harmony to create pure sonic force. Live Animals has performed alongside Random Rab, Cashmere Cat, Thriftworks, Russ Liquid, SaQi, Nadus, DJ Hippo and more, performing at the Masquerade in Atlanta GA, New Mountain Asheville Theater, Asheville Music Hall, OneStop and beyond.
Bassclef is a local Asheville musician who puts raw energy and emotion into his music and live performances. Entering the music scene in Philadelphia in 2009, he has been actively progressing since. Shows consisting of mid-tempo, moombahton, and trap primarily, Bassclef enjoys producing, pushing boundaries, and trying out skills in all walks of music. Works alongside Mixedtraxx Ent. and local artists Davie G., LIVE ANIMALS, and illanthropy. often. Previously, he has played shows and events with DJ Icey, Baby Anne, DJ Acolyte, AK1200, Two Fresh, Big Gigantic, ill.Gates and Dieselboy.
