Heard Presents: Astronomar & BOT at Empire Control Room & Garage
18+ w/ $5 minor surcharge
Doors @ 9p
Hailing from Juneau, Alaska, Astronomar was brought up on a eclectic record collection comprised of Steely Dan, MF Doom and Switch. After relocating to Los Angeles in his early twenties, Mar has become a mainstay in the US club scene. His magical touch has definitely not gone unnoticed, being called upon to craft remixes for other noteworthy artists including What So Not, RL Grime, UZ and Canblaster, which has sparked a cult like following for the Alaskan wunderkind.
BOT is of the future. Half man, half-machine; fully Italian. Exiled in West London, locked in the studio since departing legendary duo Crookers, Bot (his creators named him Andrea Fratangelo) has disassembled any expectations and rebuilt his sound for 2018.
Phamstar is never bound to any one genre & has a deep love for all things dance music. She’s had the pleasure of sharing her sounds at some of Texas’s hottest dance clubs. Recently, Phamstar was added to NapGirls, a creative, collaborative collective of women promoting gender equality in the dance music industry.
