The fourthcity laptop battle went down last night at Chop Suey. The battle was huge in every sense of the word, and the final round was fantastic. Kris Moon kicked out intense dnb IDM and showed improvisational flair along the way; Nordic Soul demonstrated his electro-house skills in response. Check the photos.

The key to a kickin’ laptop performance appears to be Ableton Live, strange sequencer software that permits spontaneous triggering of samples and other events via the laptop’s keyboard and mouse.

Looking forward to participating in the next battle…
