Blankstairs is a new net-based beat music label out of Portland, OR. And I mean new. Like first-release-coming-soon new. The whole thing is run by a bunch of youngsters not quite old enough to get into any music venue in the city without an all-ages show going on, of which Portland has very few. So, they started throwing their own shows at bike shops and art galleries which they called Beatogether. All of these details so far are pretty similar to that NYC label, Astro Nautico. Two young collectives on opposite sides of the country, essentially pursuing the same thing under similar circumstances? A collaboration was bound to happen. And here it is; a 25-minute deeeep-breathing track from Astro Nautico’s Michael Jukeson, accompanied by gelatinous visuals from members of the Blankstairs label. If the first proper release (like BS001) is anything at all like this, then I imagine we will all be adding this collective to our to-follow list of youngsters making electronic music.
