Spooloops (CA)

Spooloops is a live electronic music project of Ian James Newton, an artist whose creative output encompasses music and contemporary art. Ian has coordinated legendary social interventions and interactive gatherings since 2000, mainly in his studio ‘Zero to One’, a multi-disciplinary art venue in Kitchener, Ontario. The music of Spooloops is an unexpected combination of booty shakin’ dance floor pleasure and deep space techno pop. He transports listeners through a kaleidoscopic journey, with zero gravity bass lines where Detroit meets the Jetsons. His potent live sets are crafted using older mid-quality hardware: Roland MC505, Yamaha SU700, Korg ESX-1. Embracing the innate awkwardness and specific quirks of this gear adds a beautiful controlled looseness to the sound.
