Very excited to announce that Emancipator and Blockhead will be teaming up for a US Winter Tour.
To some, it must seem like this young electronic producer came out of nowhere. Emancipator (Douglas Appling) played his first live show in July 2009, opening for Bonobo at the Roseland Theater (cap. 1500). Since then, he has toured with Bassnectar, drawn crowds at festivals like Trinumeral and Symbiosis, and closed out Sound Tribe Sector 9s late night parties in Denver at the request of the band.
Blockhead (born Anthony "Tony" Simon) is an American Hip hop producer based in Manhattan, New York. Aside from his solo efforts released on the Ninja Tune label, he is most associated with producing for Aesop Rock, a rapper for the Definitive Jux independent hip hop label. He has also previously worked with rappers C-Rayz Walz, iCON the Mic King, Mac Lethal, S.A. Smash, Slug, and MURS, and is also a member of the hip hop/comedy group Party Fun Action Committee. He is the son of the late Sidney Simon, a well known sculptor in New York City.
