Thursday 18th October, 2012.
Jimmy Edgar is the model example of the multi-faceted modern artist. His resume seems nigh on impossible for a mere 26 year old: Warp-approved producer, avant-garde multi-instrumentalist, haute couture fashion photographer and industrial designer.
His live LED-infused performance has slayed crowds everywhere from Detroit’s prestigious Movement Festival to Berlin’s legendary Watergate.
With releases on Hotflush, Warp and !K7, Edgar is sure to provide an eclectic take of Detroit-infused future funk, drawing on influences as diverse as Kraftwerk, Prince and Egyptian Lover. The result is a fresh and palatable take on the time-honoured tropes of 80’s electronic music, replete with stone cold vocoders and vintage pitch-bent synth stabs. Needless to say, this night is a must see.
From his debut EP ‘Slow Hands’ to remixes for Grimes, Frank Ocean and Future, Ryan Hemsworth is moving up. He was also named one of Fact Magazines’s producers to watch in 2012. Set to release a brand new EP ‘Last Words’ on the back of collaborations with Main Attractionz, Haleek Maul and Mishka NYC, this is his first Australian tour and we’re more than excited to have him come party with us.
Back In March, producer Ryan Hemsworth’s mix for the website Live For the Funk singlehandedly made the beyond played-out mash-up vital again. That hour-and-then-some, kitchen-sink piling-on of music from anywhere and everywhere even took the time to sonically connects all its dots (Grimes slamming into Mariah!), featured an inspired mash-up of Three Six Mafia’s “Late Nite Tip,” and the Microphones’ “Instrumental”.
