Local party-promotion company and blog 1833 launched in February 2013 and tomorrow night it celebrates its two-year anniversary with a bash at East Room. How to Dress Well main man Tom Krell will DJ alongside a trio of local producers—Thelonious Martin, Mojek, and Different Sleep, the latter of whom made today’s 12 O’Clock Track, “Hurt You.” Different Sleep, aka Rafa Alvarez, recruited emotive K-Town rapper Lil Chris and ahead-of-the-curve MC Kid Sister for the track, which weds a club-busting, rattling percussion loop with what sounds like mournful synths played in reverse. Take a listen to “Hurt You” below and prepare for 1883’s party—it’s free but you need to RSVP at Do312’s website.
