Jace Clayton, aka DJ /rupture, who is interviewed in The BLDGBLOG Book, has a new album out with Matt Shadetek—and he’s suddenly everywhere. The newest issue of New York magazine, for instance, has a short feature in which Rupture describes their new album; called Solar Life Raft, it comes with its own architectural premise. The mix “paints a picture,” we read, “of New York 40 years in the future, where the water line is at the fourth story of buildings and the rich people are dry in the Catskills. Kids are making music on their cell phones and grilling octopi. So, it’s postapocalyptic, but not necessarily grim.” Flavorwire has also just run a list of /rupture’s favorite pairings: cities twinned with music.
And on Friday, November 13, from 9pm to 1am, the album will be premiered at no less a site than the planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History; BLDGBLOG and Edible Geography will both be there, and there are still a few tickets left. Attendees apparently get a free show at the planetarium! Hope to see some of you there.
