Bio

From the May 23-29 edition of Encore Magazine LIBRARIES Dance. Dance. Dance. That’s all that really needs to be said about Libraries. While they may induce the idea of easy chilling with Huck Finn or Holden Caulfield, they’re more born of the notion to moving a crowd. “Live is the best way to hear our music,” electronic mastermind Justin Chillington notes. “It’s pretty hi-fi and energetic, but also kinda fun and quirky. We like to make weird noises into danceable sounds.” Hence, the name “Libraries” didn’t necessarily come from Chillington’s and his counterpart Tommy Kitrick’s love of books. It “stemmed more from electronic libraries of sound clips and samples, as found in your favorite music production software.” Focused on producing synth-pop sounds, over hip-hop beats and a bevy of oddball samples, Chillington claims, “Half the stuff feels like the back beats to a Big L album, and the other half is really melodic electro stuff, with really good guitar parts” Chillington and Kitrick know music. Each have played instruments, formally and informally, and were introduced after a chance meeting in band practice. “Tommy[‘s] band came over to jam one day, and we ended up having a 10-person, hour-long post-rock epic,” Chillington explains. “Afterward, Tommy and I started nerding-out over the different electronic equiptment we had.” Fairly new to the scene, Libraries started in early 2010 but has already played across Wilmington, including the Soapbox and 16 Taps, not to mention their most fun gig yet, held at Level 5 for last month’s Dance 4 Liberation charity event. “The crowd was really feeding off it, and the city light background was just right,” Chillington notes. Next on their agenda, aside from continuing to move the masses at WE Fest, will be recording a more fully orchestrated demo that they hope to distribute. Their passion for music will keep them tweaking beats on the high. “If you’re not creating something while you’re on this planet,” Chillington says, “then I feel you are kind of wasting your time. Make a positive mark.” Friday’s MixGrotto Release Party during WE Fest will showcase new talent on Wilmington’s scene. “This town is bursting with it!” Chillington insists. “Let’s put it on the map!”
