Frivolous (live), Ads (Late Night Shuffle) and Racketeers Ken Cloud, Jimmi James, Zootie and Simon Caldwell.
Mad Racket proudly presents the first Australian appearance of innovative Canadian producer & DJ, Frivolous, aka Daniel Gardner. In Gardner, ten years of “communist-style classical piano training” merged with a love of Detroit sounds, and he began tinkering with cutting edge electronics and home-made electronic instruments. Aged just 16, Gardner began his first residency in Vancouver in 1996, and two years later sent out a demo CD of unfinished work to five of the world’s most progressive electronic labels. “I told Andy (Vaz) [from Background records] that the work wasn’t finished, and the same day I received his reply was the day that the test pressings arrived…” Since then Frivolous has released a stream of acclaimed EPs for Background, Karloff, Poptronix and recently a full-length for ~scape. His music combines glitchy house rhythms with lush melodies and quirky vocals. Don’t miss his first show. Truly live.
Frivolous’ live show incorporates unique music-making devices, such as the “Frivolous Patented Electric Knife”. For more on Frivolous check out www.frivolouslive.com/
Joining Frivolous in the Bowlo Ballroom will be Ads (from Late Night Shuffle) and the Racketeers Ken Cloud, Jimmi James, Zootie and Simon Caldwell, with Bowlo-O-Sonic sound tuned to minor earthquake.
