Following on from a year of dub heavy beat nights in Melbourne town we’re excited to bring the Echoes – Experiments in Dub events to Sydney starting Sept 29th.
This night celebrating the influence of Dub in electronic music, from its Jamaican origins to House, Techno and Dubstep.
Dub, developed originally on the late sixties focusing on the rhythmic parts of a Reggae recording, grew to be a genre on its own right that has literally shaken the world ever since. It was a powerful experiment that has pushed the use of the mixing desk as an instrument and gave greater control to the sound engineer as a producer. It set the blueprint for much of the dance music that has followed.
ECHOES will take you on a bass heavy journey from Kingston to Berlin via Detroit and London.
For the Sydney launch party of ECHOES we have a very special treat from Echo Inspectors, the new live project from Melbourne lads & Pinksilver music bosses; Mark Baumann and Lance Harrison.
Seeking out vibrations of the malevolent and identifying spectres have been the Inspectors past goals. It is now their task the help punters caught in Techno purgatory to cross over and experience all things spatial.
Echo Inspectors will take you on a musically journey form the deep and dubby to the dry and textural, all intricately sculptured in the moment.
Two minds controlling multiple layers of sound and efx. A musical experience with a lot of depth, tension and rhythm.
Local Sydney supports on the night come from some the underground Dub-lovers spanning from a rare deep dubby reggae start of the night from Dave Stuart, through some lush dub techno & house from Brazilian import Gabriel Fernandes, Bad Apple’s Ben Ashton will take things deep & dark after the Echo Inspectors live set, and ending with a exploration into bass culture with Worldwide Favorite; Andosound.
