Lunice – Live (LuckyMe, Montreal)
KRAMPFHAFT – DJ (Rwina, Saturate) UK Debut
DARKHOUSE FAM - DJ (Earnest Endeavours)
PATCHWORK PIRATES - DJ (Earnest Endeavours)
Fresh from our summer BBQ with Dante Fried Chicken and with the debut release on the label dropping soon, Earnest Endeavours resumes its monthly party in London. We’re kicking off with 3 of our current favourites in the world right now, long-time ally Lunice, the explosive Krampfhaft for his debut UK show and our newest addition to EE; Darkhouse Fam.
Lunice Fermin Pierre II has taken over the asylum because his sound is crazy, his vibe is inconceivable, and his appeal boundless. Here at EE we’ve long been friends with the dude they call Lunice and are proud to see he’s rightly captured the attention of the world. He’s a natural born entertainer who has the drive, sound, and dexterity to make you move. With still only a few releases to his name he’s managed to craft his own recipe which makes dance floors bump, and bass bins thump. With remixes for labels such as Mad Decent, Sony Music, XL Recordings, Young Turks and Big Dada he’s recently released his second bruising EP for the LuckyMe crew entitled “One Hunned” bring more Lunice’s own 80’s inspired, glitchy soul thizz to your ears. Not only is the music extraordinary, so is his larger-than-life stage persona. Lunice manages to capture audiences worldwide by dominating the stage and revitalizing dance floors with his quintessential energy and awe-inspiring charisma.
Joris van Grunsven, better known as Krampfhaft, produces his own brand of progressive electronic sound. These productions are packed with energy and rolling synths, making his music impossible not to bounce along with. After putting a teaser of his “Spit Thunder EP” online 8 months prior to its release date, he started to get acclaim and support from both local and international esteemed names such as Mary Anne Hobbs, Gaslamp Killer, Eprom, Om Unit and more and he’s now signed to Amsterdam’s Rwina Records, with the forthcoming Makin Magic EP due for a release on September 26th.
Darkhouse Family (aka Metabeats and Don Leisure) are spearheading a new generation of beat makers; making tracks blessed with eerie samples, big beat half claps, strung together by a chaos of hi hats and vintage bleeps. The Cardiff based duo has released via Fat City Recordings - the Family Trees EP drew on 80’s boogie synths tangled with heavy bumping boom bap kicks and snares, while their taste for 808s and swollen bass are prevalent throughout their music. Darkhouse Fam are currently working on their debut EP release for Earnest Endeavours, with guest vocals contributions from Om’mas Keith (of Sa-Ra Creative Partners). More info to come shortly
