Nosaj Thing set to rock the Morass

July 16th, 2011

Nosaj Thing makes his debut live appearance in Australia following a flurry of remix attention for his work on songs by The xx, Radiohead and Flying Lotus (amongst others). His 2009 album Drift on Alpha Pup Records stood out in an ever-crowded Beat scene, notably pushed forward by support from folks like Teebs, Jamie xx, Dorian Concept and Daedelus on the 2010 Drift Remix album.

Nosaj Thing has been featured as an artist-to-watch in magazines like Fader, XLR8R, The New Yorker, and Nylon, and as one of Urb Magazine’s Next 1000 artists. He’s won Turntable Lab/Plastic Little’s remix contest featuring MF Doom, and won L.A.’s prestigious Project Blowed beat battle. He has shared the stage with the likes of DJ AM, Architecture in Helsinki, DJ Krush, Z-Trip, Flying Lotus, Free the Robots, Diplo, The Glitch Mob, and Daedelus. He has received regular airplay on BBC Radio One and Los Angeles’ KCRW, and is a staple and a crowd pleaser at L.A.’s underground hip-hop good time, Low End Theory.

In support, the prolific beat-smith Puzahki (representing Ender Records) and Science Project (showcasing their Under the Sun EP on Dub Temple Records) will come together in a rare and dynamic collaborative live set alongside Dank Morass DJs Walrii & Danck.

Ender and Dub Temple Records release free compilations

May 20th, 2011

Some local fire has been circulating lately with 2 compilations being released within the last month. Dub Temple, started by Morass affiliates Science Project and Ender Records championed by Herts, have both blessed us with this local heat in the form two tasty compilations both of which feature Dank Morass’ own Walrii on original productions.

Click cover art to download the comps.

Firstly, Dub Temple is conceptualising the roots of remix culture in a series of beat tapes that pay tribute to the greats of Jamaican music. The first beat tape is comprised of local, national and international beat makers who make their own interpretations of Bob Marley’s back catalogue, the man who brought reggae to the world. The Bob Marley Beat Tape features such a variety of broken rhythms and bass illustrating not only the potentials in the art of remix but also the depth of talent amongst local producers in Brisbane and their affiliates. Big up to The Temple!

The 2nd compilation is brought to the masses by the Ender records camp… This is a promo that shows the great music from the label and its bright future. A collection of dubstep, breakcore, 909-electro-bass, hip hop and atmospheric experimentation. Check it out!

Science Project live at Bar Soma supporting Mount Kimbie…

Subdetritus ~ march 2011

April 9th, 2011

This month in Subdetritus we hold a lantern up to one of the most promising young labels to spew forth from the heady bass brew slowly bubbling away in Brisbane – Ender Records. Founded by John English (aka Herts), the label has become home to a grip of young underground beat makers from Queensland and beyond. “I have been trying to get a label going for about 2 years now,” English explains. “With two failed ventures behind me, I decided to just do it on my own. It seems to be working well so far! I just want the world to hear the amazing music that is coming out of our region, and also further cement Australia as a serious global contender in the beat scene.”

So far the label has released the incredible Laser Storm EP by Brisbane-based Elroy 4.0, a free Christmas compilation last December that featured fifteen beats from the entire Ender family and an impressive 3-track release from Total Stranger called Burning Sockets – all of which are available from the Ender Bandcamp site.  For English, its not just about getting this music released but to give the acts on Ender everything they need to move to the next level. “The end goal would be to have successful releases that lead to global tours for all our artists, and encompassing management, distribution and publishing,” he says. “Another goal is to expand the label to represent not only musicians but all media artists, releasing video and other new media content.”

Ender Records is sitting on some pretty exciting future releases. Keep a weathered eye on the horizon for new bits from New Zealand-based producers Epoch and Lefty. Also in the pipeline are releases from Australian producers Pedestrian and the follow-up from Total Stranger that has been described by English as “kind of like taking ketamine at a school disco.” A video for the new Total Stranger tune ‘State Of Mind’ is up now on the Ender website (see above). The big one that many people in the local scene are waiting for is the debut album from PuzahkiFlex Capacitor.  No less than eight free mix tapes from this prolific beat maker will precede the official album release that has been almost four years in the making. Stay tuned to the Ender website or Facebook group for more info on these releases and further information about this new guard of bass alchemists.

RBMA presents Space Invadas and Pursuit Grooves @ Bar Soma, 08/04/2011

April 6th, 2011

 

THIS FRIDAY NIGHT @ BAR SOMA!

$15 TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

FACEBOOK EVENT

RBMA APPLICATIONS OPEN UNTIL 26th APRIL! APPLY NOW!

Aside from being some of the most highly regarded new-breed musicians, producers, vocalists and DJs, what do Aloe Blacc, Andreya Triana, Dorian Concept, Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke, Poirier and Buraka Son Sistema’s Lil John have in common? They were all students at the Red Bull Music Academy (RBMA) – the internationally recognised breeding ground and meeting point for the vanguard of electronic music.

Continuing their long held tradition of accelerating underground music culture, this year’s academy will be held in Tokyo, Japan in August. To celebrate this occasion, RBMA is once again bringing a piece of itself to Brisbane’s doorstep with a night of boundary-blurring live soul music.

Maintaining the quality from last year’s RBMA show featuring Tokimonsta, Illum Sphere and Martyn, this year’s event will feature ARIA nominated artists Space Invadas and nu-school vocalist, lyricist and beat maker, Pursuit Grooves (NYC) on Friday April 8th at Bar Soma in the Fortitude Valley.

Space Invadas is a collaboration between producer/DJ Katalyst and singer/producer Steve Spacek and has resulted in the critically acclaimed 2010 album “Soul-Fi”. Space Invada’s live format is a 5-piece band featuring bass, drums, guitar, samplers and electronics with Steve on vocals, harkening back to legendary soul outfits with a modern twist.

Space Invadas – Imaginist by Rock the house

Steve Spacek (aka Steve White) who originates from London and now based in Sydney, earned his stripes in his first group “Spacek” in 1996 and since then his heartfelt falsetto and electronic broken-beats, have become an institution of the underground. Steve has worked with J Dilla on the seminal track “Dollar”, as well as Mos Def, Slum Village and Common, while being hailed by critics and other artists as Curtis Mayfield or Marvin Gaye reincarnated.

Katalyst (aka Ashley Anderson) is a prolific Sydney based DJ/producer known for transforming rare funk and soul into his own dance-floor hip-hop based compositions. The dense mood and soul of his 2002 ARIA nominated debut album Manipulating Agent was a landmark for Australian hip-hop and raised the bar for those who came after.

Vanese Smith aka Pursuit Grooves is an electronic music producer, vocalist and live performance artist living in Brooklyn, New York and was a participant in the 2008 Redbull Music Academy in Barcelona, Spain. Her latest album, “Fox Trot Mannerisms” was released on the reputable Bristol Bass label, Tectonic and has been hailed by BBC radio’s Giles Petersen as one of the best albums of 2010. Pursuit Grooves brings her bass heavy future-funk to life using samplers, drum machines, keyboards and of course the microphone.

Nodding Grand March ’11 by PursuitGrooves

In support, local dons Monster Monster and Saint Surly will mash out their own raw hip hop productions live as well as original heavy weight bass-hop productions from Puzahki, representing the Brisbane label, Ender Records. Local stalwarts Dank Morass will also be holding down DJing duties with their selections of cutting edge soul.

Emergency Exit.
