Ohio has long lamented the brain drain; is the next cultural crisis a funk drain? Columbus DJ Titonton Duvanté -- Titonton for short -- is about to leave for the slightly larger dance scene of New York City, but he'll stop in Cleveland for his final Ohio appearance before succumbing to Brooklyn's call. As a youth, he became enthralled with breakdancing, when electro and electronic bands like Art of Noise and New Order caught his ear. He made a name with the seminal techno band Body Release and eventually developed a stellar reputation as a mixmaster by incorporating musical influences from jazz improv and composer John Cage. Lately, he's been trafficking in broken-beat tracks, spinning around the world. Expect a night of beats, house, techno, and a few fresh surprises.
