29 Dec. // 多风格的交汇融合 - Tittsworth
“There is no genre barrier that canencapsulate exactly what kind of music he’s making, but it’s far fromplayed-out.”- VIBE MAGAZINE
看到 Tittsworth 这个名字，不了解的人可能会捂嘴发笑（其实名字就是英国那地儿出产的），来自华盛顿 DC 的 Tittsworth 是位用自己特立独行的方式影响世界 dance music 十几年的人。网上有段访问，主持人和他边吃着烤猪头肉，一边采访他小时候想过要做什么，他说一开始其实想当建筑师，直到发现音乐才是自己的归属，说完后大胆地摘下烤猪的眼珠吃了下去，可能豪放大胆热情的性格也是影响他音乐风格的因素之一。
从2000年初开始他就陆续发行了十几张黑胶唱片；2006年，成立了联合唱片公司 T&A ，为当时的 club music 嵌入更好的基因。当然挫折是成功者必先体会的，刚开始会有很多质疑说他们的音乐并不是原创的，人云亦云的事情也不是互联网时代才开始的，Tittsworth 的辟谣方式就是坚持做自己喜欢的，套用一句大俗即大雅之言就是，是金子总会发光的； 2008年，Tittsworth推出了专辑“ Twelve Steps ”，该唱片获得了 Billboard ， DJ Mag ， URB ，XLR8R 等好评。
后来还出力成立了美国首个“ U Street Music Hall ” dance music 俱乐部。这个信条是“ no frills and no dress code ”的俱乐部被很多一流的 DJ 评为美国最好的俱乐部之一。Tittsworth 的音乐风格里会包括: ATL rap， grime ，gogo ， DNB ，hiphop ， Moombahton (一种 House 和 Reggaeton 融合的音乐类型)，现在他把目光投向了另一个融合了家乡音乐的流派 DC go-go 。他的最新计划“ Reagan Bombs ”已经开始探索这个 40 年都不为人知的流派，以及如何让其和别的文化相结合。 非常好奇 Tittsworth 这次会给我们带来什么音乐！
Tittsworth's one-of-a-kind approach has been influencing the world of dance music for over a decade. Co-establishing his own record label in 2006, T&A Records has played an important role in the cultivating influential movements in various life cycles of dance music including Baltimore club, blog-house and the earliest Moombahton Records for starters. Tittsworth's own production skills were made global with his debut album, which featured Pitbull, and Nina Sky to name a few. The LP received high praise from Billboard, DJ Mag, URB, XLR8R and more. His Pitbull collaboration gained the eye of Ministry of Sound. He released an original record with Q-tip, a Moombahton all time classic, and a dozen or so pieces of vinyl that are no stranger to ebay. Tittsworth’s style was birthed from his hometown of Washington, DC, in parties like Buzz at Nation/Capitol Ballroom, Tracks, and countless raves and warehouses. After a couple of DIY releases, this Chinese-American performer soon progressed to playing major festivals around the world with music appearing from Fox shows to the FIFA soundtrack.
Tittsworth also helped open a premiere home for dance music in America as co- owner of U Street Music Hall. This “no frills and no dress code" club was named one of the best in the US by Beatport, Rolling Stone, and countless A-list DJ's. Tittsworth has toured throughout Asia, to Nicaragua, performed in countless North American cities, all while releasing quality production. His song “After The Dance” was the #3 overall most popular song on Hype Machine and prominently featured on Okayplayer. His house song with (dance hall notables and Major Lazor collaborators) TOK, was supported by Annie Mac and was no stranger to BBC1. Tittsworth has had recent festival appearances alongside Jamie XX, Kayne West, Ludacris and Estelle to name a recent few. Vibe named him as one of "10 Dane Music DJS Your Should Know By Now.” He is co-responsible for Pendejas, a moombahton classic in a defining moment before the genre would dominate iTunes and influence the sounds of Dillon Francis and Major Lazer to name a few.
Staying ahead of the curve in, Tittsworth now sets his sights on another syncopated hometown rhythm, DC go-go. His newest project, “Reagan Bombs,” has begun exploring the 40-year-old yet relatively unknown genre. Working alongside acclaimed director Scott Sanders (of Sundance-awarded turned Adult Swim show, “Black Dynamite”), the project has been backed by the New York Foundation of
the Arts and includes executive production by Ali Shaheed Mohammed (A Tribe Called Quest) and Adrian Younge. He has studied the genre for years and has started to propagate it into otherscenes such as the LA beat scene, Chinese Rap scene, house/techno, etc.
Tittsworth continues to tour from east to west, with DJ gigs stretching from Baltimore to Bombay. His genre-bending sets continue to draw from the wide range of global sounds, stitched together as uniquely his.
