Via App

Via Apps’s (aka Brooklyn-based Dylan Scheer) breakthrough releases on 1080p “Dangerous Game” and “7 Headed” have made her one of the most recognizable faces of the New York dance underground, thanks to an unwillingness to follow dance music rules. Striking a playful balance between murky loops and funky rhythms, she subverts house/techno/electro categories in dizzy, hypnagogic ways, sourcing widely from user-upload sites and field recordings. The resulting unsual and unsettling textures set her music apart.
