Frosty Tone presents Moldy

Frosty Tone Presents Moldy

Saturday, August 13th

If you’ve ever seen the sonic portrait of Aphex Twin on his Windowlicker EP then you know that sound can also contain image. Check out dubstep producer Moldy’s soundcloud page ( and you’ll notice some visually interesting patterns to his tracks. “Dark Machine,” an entrancing and droning bass track actually looks like a missile flying through the air, as if the Portland, Maine native manually drew out the patterns of wavy bass and breaks. “For the Head” looks like a serrated blade slowly and cleanly cutting through thick ether with hissing hi-hats and subtle melody. For years, Moldy has been releasing similarly deep and dark bass tracks on labels like Earwax, Embassy Recordings and his own label, Heavy Pressure Recordings, which he founded in 2006. Take this chance to see a pioneering American dubstep producer at DBGB this Saturday (Aug 13) with support from Rochester based bass artists Audiowright and Perceptor, and a slew of Buffalo’s finest like Loki, the Verdict, CMC, and Drop D. —cory perla
