CENTERED presents: MOODY (LIVE SET) / BRETT RUBIN
MOODY’s live performance brings a sense of sonic elevation only possible through the combination of graceful violin strings and the hypnotic beats of bass-driven, melodic electronic music.
Combining these seemingly disparate styles is an ever-evolving process that continually challenges the producer.
MOODY’s proclamation in life – blending the violin and electronic music, has been a lifelong process. He picked up his first violin at age five and his first set of turntables at 11 when his local YMCA invited him to DJ an event. After, he took over his father’s recording studio and began producing music.
Don’t miss his debut Honolulu performance at Centered Wednesday.
BRETT RUBIN BIO:
Creator, talent buyer, and resident dj for Terrace Afterhours Las Vegas.
When Carl Cox, Disclosure, Claude VonStroke or Richie Hawtin descend behind the decks in Las Vegas, it’s Brett Rubin who’s called to set the night up proper. When Burning Man needs a DJ/producer to play peak time that can channel the energy of the crowd, Brett Rubin is on board. And when venues need an afterhours aficionado to keep the dancefloor going until after sunrise, Brett Rubin is the go-to veteran to build a party from the ground up.
A Chicago native, Brett Rubin spent his late teens digging in crates for electronic music at Gramaphone and other famous Windy City record shops. He experimented with it all, from house and trance to techno, nu disco and progressive. Since planting his roots in Las Vegas, Brett Rubin most enjoys seamlessly integrating different moods of house and tech. “I definitely draw from a wide variety of influences and I pride myself on my programming, meaning that I cater to the time of day, the venue, the crowd and—as weird as it sounds—what the crowd is under the influence of,” says Rubin of his nearly 20 years behind the decks. “Style-wise, I play everything from house, techno, tech house and deep, mostly on the deeper realm of things without being too fluffy and floaty,” he says. “It really depends on the time of day.”
Brett Rubin’s experience has earned him gigs from Miami to Portland as well as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Salt Lake City, plus playing at ADE, BPM, Electric Daisy Carnival, Groove Cruise and Minus Zero. He’s also been a staple at all the best underground parties in Sin City, including a residency at the infamous Empire Ballroom, playing with greats such as Nicole Moudaber, Seth Troxler, Guy Gerber, Danny Tenaglia and more for Sundown at Daylight, as well as launching the still-running Artisan Afterhours and now Terrace Afterhours.
This is Brett’s third return to Centered Wednesday, don’t miss what’s always set to be an unforgettable night!
