Wednesday, Fredericksburg, Virginia’s Otter House played host to a little something new. Announced as K. Lovedub And The Sun, local-boy-made-good, Keller Williams took his recent “Electronic Experiments” to a new level.
The evening began with Magic Hat beer specials and a 90 minute set of roots, dub, and dancehall reggae from DJ One Drop. He got the room ready to party and, as midnight approached, the curtain pulled back and the bass from the stage merged with the bass from the records and the experiment was underway. Onstage with Keller was Scott Sunn, a visual/video artist who has worked with Radiohead, SCI, as well as Keller at many of his festival performances. As Keller laid down bass, midi-guitar and more Sunn mixed video on the screen near the stage and the two appeared to collaborate on selecting and triggering samples via the onstage mixer.
Keller’s longtime sound engineer, Lou Gossain, was mixing in the front-of-house position, of course, and he had the room sounding as good as I’ve ever heard it. This made for a great 90 minutes of dance music that definitely had the room on their feet and dancing well into the night.
