“Thank you friends and fans. It’s been an incredible journey the past few years and I’m honored to share this project with you. Super stoked on how ‘Signal Theory’ came out and the variety of style it brings to the table.” –Statik

First year Summer Camp Music Festival performer, Statik (Chicago, IL.) just released a new EP entitled, ‘Signal Theory’.
The project starts off dark and ominous with a track, I Miss The Future, that includes a verse from Pete Cloudz. It follows up with a soul/jazz production with the Chicago Brass Coalition, Radio Burst, where Statik introduces us to his [GUITAR BRAND/MODEL] guitar. Number three on the list is When They Call. The leading release from the project, dropping just before the EP, is a chill, down tempo track that was featured in the promotional video release (see below). Statik decides to get a little schwifty for number four in a futuristic wonk called Mad World. Finally, closing with another dark, but heavier track for The Experiement pt. 1 featuring Kromuh.

I had my first Statik experience back at The Canopy Club in April of 2016 as he opened up for Filibusta. Introduced to his music by a mutual friend, I have been following and supporting since. Deep inside some groove between Gramatik and Pretty Lights, he carves out his own sound. Being fortunate enough to have permission to record some dslr video for three of his performances over the past year I was able to create promotional video (see above) showcasing some of his sets. The Canopy Club in October 2016 opening for Marvel Years & Artifakts. The Official PL Episode 08 after party with Jubee and Exmag at Embassy Studios Chicago in August 2017. As well as the sold out Spring Awakening after party at The Concord Music Hall in direct support of GRiZ in June of 2017.
Statik continues to make moves as he returns once again to my home turf at The Canopy Club this October in support of Liquid Stranger & Manic Focus on their HyperColor Tour. I hope to see all my friends from Saint Louis, Indianapolis, Chicago and beyond, plus everybody in between make it down for this one. Fair warning though, do not sleep on your tickets, this will be one of several sell out shows on the tour.
