Girl Talk is Pittsburgh-based mash-up artist Gregg Gillis. Not too long ago, Gillis made his bread and butter as a biomedical engineer, relegating his mash-up skills to hobby status. But the buzz on both his wildly inventive productions — slicing and dicing and stitching together bits of oldies, chart hits, indie-rock favorites and hip-hop jams — and his wilder live performances eventually propelled him to make Girl Talk a full-time endeavor.
Celebrating 10-plus years of sample-obsessed production and relentless touring, Gregg Gillis released All Day this past November, his fifth album as Girl Talk, and his most epic, densely layered, and meticulously composed musical statement to date. Continuing the saga from the previously acclaimed albums, Night Ripper and Feed The Animals, Gillis lays down a more diverse range of samples to unfold a larger dynamic between slower transitions and extreme cut-ups. With the grand intent of creating the most insane and complex “pop collage” album ever heard, large catalogs of both blatantly appropriated melodies and blasts of unrecognizable fragments were assembled for the ultimate Girl Talk record (clocking in at 71 minutes and 372 samples).
The Boulevard Pool will set the stage for Las Vegas’ most unique live concerts. Perched high above The Las Vegas Strip, The Boulevard Pool is a multilevel pool experience by day and an intimate outdoor concert venue with unobstructed sightlines of both the stage and The Strip by night.
