城市遊牧影展 2012年開幕派對 URBAN NOMAD: 2012 OPENING PARTY
***** 藝人介紹 / ARTISTS *****
TRIPPPLE NIPPPLES (JP)
英國衛報（The Guardian）形容他們的現場表演「是那種傳奇性演出」，也有人說他們音樂的衝擊波會一擊致命，美國音樂教父、N.E.R.D主腦菲董（Pharrell Williams）不僅急切地想與他們合作，更親口背書：「他們有夠瞎趴！」
Trippple Nippples究竟有多厲害？2010年他們於Summer Sonic演出，2011年即被邀請到歐洲兩次巡迴，Die Antwoord 跟80年代傳奇電子 pop 樂團 Devo 都邀請他們做暖場，Vice雜誌還特別找他們主持東京音樂節目，2011年底在紐約七場表演都 sold out！他們融合了electro節奏和punk的樂風，演出現場經常使用燈光、極限服裝、發射器等裝置藝術，帶著趣味又隱含情色和極其激烈的表演，就像同時身處時鐘工廠和魔法玩具城，台前台下來一場蛋糕大戰！台灣的朋友，一定要親身體驗Trippple Nippples才能感受到他們當紅的魅力！

當然，城市遊牧影展開幕PARTY不僅僅如此，否則怎麼能滿足各位瘋狂古怪的細胞？我們還邀請到今年春吶的嘉賓北上出招，美國電子/hip hop音樂的紅人Mochipet！台灣狂派樂評愛吹倫特別撰文推薦，「現場演出是一次次完美的mashup，將不同類型的音樂做一個最完善的處理，帶動現場氣氛的功力也是一絕！」Mochipet在台灣出生，父母皆是台灣人的台裔電子/hip hop製作人，定居在西岸音樂重鎮舊金山，表演總是穿著紫色恐龍裝，製作的音樂相當廣，從電子、實驗電子、IDM、breakcore、hardcore techno、reggae、dubstep到hip hop都有，把玩各多種音樂卻不含糊，絕對經得起考驗，不僅作品獲得極高的評價，也吸引了許多不同類型的藝人、製作人爭相找他合作，對於這樣一號人物，身在台灣的各位一定要好好認識！
TRIPPPLE NIPPPLES (JP)
"Overcaffeinated electronic art rock"--THE NEW YORKER
“Ferociously fast and furious”--THE GUARDIAN
“Full of energy…got the crowd going crazy...amazing” -- PHARRELL WILLIAMS
"Art you can sweat to" MTV IGGY
TRIPPPLE NIPPPLES from Tokyo is conceptual art, a dance party and punk rock show all at the same time. A couple months ago, they sold out seven shows in New York and were invited to open for DEVO on an east coast tour. PHARRELL WILLIAMS (N.E.R.D.) is a big fan and looking to collaborate with them later this year. They’re also coming off two successful European tours in 2011, including shows at Lowlands Festival (NL) and Summer Sonic (JP), and a support for DIE ANTWOORD. Mind you, this is a band fronted by three Japanese girls who usually go on stage in little more than body paint and costumes they made from the 100 yen store. “Insane” is a pretty overused word these days. It should be reserved for bands like this.

Just call him the Jeremy Lin of glitch-hop and dubstep, and oh, by the way, did we mention that he wears a purple dinosaur costume? David Wang, a.k.a. MOCHIPET is definitely the cutest DJ we know, almost like a video game character come to life playing super bouncy, bass-heavy dance tracks. He’s also a Taiwanese-American DJ/producer coming straight out of San Francisco’s underground dance scene, and he’ll be playing his first ever gigs in Taiwan. So far, the young MOCHI has shared stages with the likes of Big Boi (Outkast), Kid Koala, Ken Ishii, M.I.A. and Rusko. He’s collaborated on tracks with artists from the worlds of skateboarding (Ray Barbee / Powell Peralta), hip hop (Jahcoozi, Spank Rock) and techno (Ellen Allien).

GO CHIC (TW)
Definitely our favorite electro-hippy chicks, GO CHIC’s mix of dance rock and grrrl punk has just got that kind of crazy energy that keeps you coming back for more. They’re coming off successful tours of Germany, Spain and the US in 2011, and a second album is now in the works, being produced in Berlin by alt-dance diva PEACHES. With that in the works, they’re not performing too much right now. We’re lucky to host one of GO CHIC’s few shows in the first half of 2012.
FUNKY BROTHERS (TW)
Infectious liver than live booty music from an 8-piece band that’s got the whole family on stage - the horn section, the hootchy mama on vocals, the sly rhythm section and a dash of guitar wizardry. It’s not for nothing that FUNKY BROTHERS have a reputation for party music!
Do we need to mention yet again that she was the first female DJ accepted to the DMC world championships? Well, we just did I guess. But Noodles has meant so much more to Taiwan’s dance scene, whether it’s been setting standards at Luxy, spreading the love at giant raves in Indonesia or kicking out the jams it at indie parties. To be honest, we’re psyched to have her playing primetime slot in a warehouse party like this. It’s gonna be dope.
No question about it. Marcus knows how to keep ya’ll’s big ol’ butts moving, how to slip some Pharcyde or rare Outkast track into a mix, how to keep the party bumping till the wee hours. No wonder we’re giving him the Mariano Rivera slot at this shindig. He’s a closer. He’s an ace!
