Continuing its mission to bring together the best cutting edge electronic musicians in the world, the Red Bull Music Academy is mounting a triple-header tour that will bring a bass heavy three-pronged assault from Martyn, Illum Sphere and TOKiMONSTA to Brisbane’s The Family nightclub on Saturday September 18.
Each year since 1998, the Red Bull Music Academy has invited a class of 60 carefully selected beat heads from around the world to attend an intensive term of workshops with the leading exponents of electronic music. And each year, attendees and lecturers from previous terms travel the world to spread the RBMA gospel and share the music created and fostered at the Academy. The 2010 RBMA On The Floor tour brings the absolute bleeding edge of modern bass music to Brisbane’s best sound system for the first time ever.
Martyn is the senior artist of the trio. Steeped in a dubstep sound informed by a complex amalgam of techno, house, hip hop and drum and bass, it’s no surprise that the Dutch DJ, producer and label boss was drafted to mix the landmark 50th entry in Fabric London’s esteemed mix series. Check this haunting video inspired by his Great Lengths album and featuring Martyn himself.
TOKiMONSTA is the first lady of Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder crew. With her standout performance at Barcelona’s Sonar 2010 festival, the fresh Midnight Menu LP on Art Union and a brand new intercontinental collaborative 10” with London maverick Blue Daisy, TOKiMONSTA has staked her claim as one of the most exciting producers of music today.
Young producer Illum Sphere exploded out of Manchester off the back of his EP “The Incoming” and his club night Hoya:Hoya. Championed by Thom Yorke, Mary-Anne Hobbs and the Brainfeeder crew, he is only the second English performer (after Mary-Anne) to be invited to play LA’s pivotal Low End Theory night.
Bringing the local heat to Family’s high pressure sound system are some of Brisbane’s brightest producers. Elroy 4.0 scored a position on the second Oscillations compilation released by Jus Like Music, alongside international heatmakers Slugabed, Alex B and 8Bitch.
As a DJ, Erther was a lynchpin of the long-running Brisbane junglist institution Rudebwoyz, but he also peddles a mean line in menacing production. He’s blessed more than one Morass party to devastating effect in the past, and we’re stoked to have him back.
Dubstep duo Science Project have incinerated dancefloors with their dubwise bangers, and the release of their debut EP Alchemystic has positioned them as one of Australia’s most promising bass groups.
