    LOS ANGELES, CA – July 7, 2015 – Perfect Circuit Audio presents a FREE celebration of electronic music, Electric Sunset, on Saturday, August 1, 2015 at the company’s new Burbank music gear retail store. The event will feature an eclectic line-up of Los Angeles-based electronic musicians who are known for pushing the boundaries of gear and technology in interesting ways, including Twin Braids, Side Brain, Kid606, M. Geddes Gengras, and John Tejada. DJ Turbotito will also spin between sets. The event, which celebrates Perfect Circuit’s new retail outlet in Burbank, is sponsored by Moog, Ableton, Elektron, and Roland. Funktion-One Sound will be provided by Funkworks Audio. Guests will be treated to free tacos and are eligible to win over $3,000 in music gear giveaways. Electric Sunset runs from 4:00pm until 9:00pm at Perfect Circuit Audio (2405 W.

    “We have two main goals for the store: The first is to have a vast inventory of unique gear including many hard to find items,” says Brad Berry, Perfect Circuit’s owner. “Second is to do without the sort of too cool for school attitude that often goes along with a specialty store of this nature – our employees are knowledgeable, friendly, and make the equipment accessible no matter what the customer’s experience level is.”

    Twin Braids
    Twin Braids is the collaborative project of Baseck and Joy Through Noise, born out of creative instinct and mutual love of synthesizers and drum machines. Rooted in a desire to explore all facets of imagination with analog/digital circuitry and modular grids, each song is induced in the moment. At the heart of the performances lies the transmutation of frequencies through a hands-on approach, where the symbiotic energy is expressed through the play between dense warrior rhythms and ethereal textures. https://soundcloud.com/twinbraids / http://www.twinbraids.com

    Side Brain
    Yeuda Ben-Atar produces and performs music under the name Side Brain with controllers that he built himself as well as old video game controllers turned into MIDI controllers. An Ableton Certified Trainer, he has taught at major music schools in Los Angeles and recently opened his own Beat Lab Academy. He also authors Ableton Live courses for Lynda.com. https://soundcloud.com/sidebrain / http://www.sidebrain.net

    Kid606
    Kid606 is the stage name of Miguel Trost De Pedro, an electronic musician who was raised in San Diego, later moved to San Francisco, and is now based in Los Angeles. He is most closely associated with the glitch, IDM, hardcore techno, and breakcore scenes. His music is known for its high tempo breakbeats and liberal use of noise and sampling, as well as its punk aesthetic, uninhibited genre-mixing, and irreverent sense of humor. https://soundcloud.com/kid606 / http://kid606.bandcamp.com

    M. Geddes Gengras
    East Los Angeles-based M. Geddes Gengras is one half of Duppy Gun Productions (with Sun Araw) and a prolific music producer on his own. His work is based in modular synthesis, straddling a variety of forms, remaining rooted in a deep affinity for the limitations of analog electronics and a keen ear for timbral manipulation. https://soundcloud.com/green-machines / http://mgeddesgengras1.bandcamp.com

    John Tejada
    Austrian-born, Los Angeles-based John Tejada has been releasing his subtle, melodic techno for 20 years on some of the world’s most respected labels, as well as his own Palette Recordings. In addition to his work in the trenches of modules, patches, and other things synth, Tejada has developed some serious DJ acumen over the years. He has travelled the globe many times over, visiting 30 countries and lighting up renowned clubs and festivals. He also finds time for extensive studio exploration, which produces a steady stream of quality releases. https://soundcloud.com/search?q=john%20tejada / https://johntejada.bandcamp.com
