Kreuzberg's Soju Bar will host a live/DJ set from the duo later this month.
If you had of mentioned the name "Hype Williams" 12 months ago your thoughts likely would have turned to mega-budget '90s hip-hop videos. But since the beginning of last year a pair of low-key Berlin and London-based producers appropriated the name and have since used it as a vehicle for a brand of dizzying, sample-based electronica. The duo have amassed quite a discography over a short period of time, delivering their releases as either free mp3s, 7-inch singles, 12-inch LPs or cassettes. RA's Philip Sherburne was suitably impressed by their mosaic approach to music-making; his review of their free Dior EP should serve as a comprehensive introduction to the sound and style of the group.
Kreuzberg's highly intimate Soju Bar is the venue for their upcoming gig, which is being billed as a "one time only" live and DJ performance for promoters 20 Jazz Funk Greats. Preston G Parallax and 20JFG DJ are also both set to spin.
