The post dubstep, dark house electronica leanings of the mysterious Holy Other is coming to the Hare and Hounds for his first ever UK tour….
HOLY OTHER – http://soundcloud.com/holyother/
Holy Other’s Debut EP ‘ With U’ was released worldwide in June 2011 on all formats (12”, CD & digital) to universal critical acclaim and currently holds a score of 82 on Metacritic. It was listed in Best of 2011 lists by the likes of Spin, Stereogum, URB, Gorilla Vs Bear, Dummy, The Guardian and XLR8R who actually made it their number 1 record of the year as well as making Holy Other their number 2 new artist of the year. The Album has received great radio support from Stuart Maconie, Rob Da Bank and Gilles Peterson who included ‘Touch’ in his best of the year radio show.
‘In all honesty, it’s hard to say a whole lot more about Holy Other and his music without sounding like gushing fanboys. Nevertheless, With U is an incredible record. Even with its dark and dour drones—which are incredibly intoxicating on their own merits—the EP is stuffed with tangible emotion, some of which is surprisingly bright and all of which is incredibly potent.’ – XLR8R
Expect a stunning, unique show with visuals, moody lighting and music spilling out of one of the cities best soundsystems.
VESSEL – http://soundcloud.com/vessel
Vessel is the pseudonym of 22 year old Bristolian Sebastian Gainsborough. Having only been producing for a few years Seb rose to prominence in 2011 through acclaimed releases for Throwing Snow’s fledgling label left_blank, along with a sold out cassette release for Rekordah’s boutique imprint Astro-Dynamics. In early 2012 Seb signed with the all conquering Tri Angle records (home to Balam Acab, oOoOO, Holy Other, Clams Casino, The Haxan Cloak) to release his debut album.
Taking influence as much from the bass heavy heritage of the city around him as from sounds emerging further afield, Seb creates exciting, unclassifiable music across shifting BPM’s. From the EBM pulse of Nylon Sunset, the stuttering house swing of Patina or the warped boogie of Wax Dance, through to the recent industrial-tinged Tri Angle debut Scarletta, there is a unique grasp of rhythm and an undeniable musicality at work in his productions.
As part of the Young Echo collective alongside fellow left_blank artist El Kid, and Punch Drunk signees Kahn & Zhou, Seb is at the forefront of a groundbreaking generation of new producers for whom 2012 should be a stellar year.
FORT ROMEAU – http://soundcloud.com/fortromeau
Perhaps introducing South London’s Fort Romeau, aka Mike Norris, as ‘La Roux’s keyboardist / programmer’ invokes the wrong ideas of poppy electro and angular hair, but his solo productions couldn’t be further from all that. Inspired by the likes of Air, Autechre and classic Chicago House, Norris fuses warm analogue sounds and haunting vocal samples for his debut release, ‘Kingdoms’, on the seductively offbeat 100% Silk label
