After returning last month with his first official single in nearly two years, "Don't Let Go"featuring Mereki, Sydney producer Basenji today announces the world premiere of his eclectic new live show this November at Sydney's beloved Oxford Art Factory.
On Saturday November 11, Sydneysiders can prepare to experience Basenji's most enthralling live show yet. In collaboration with esteemed local lighting artist Sam Whiteside and New York photographer Finn Boyle, Basenji will unveil brand new material in conjunction with boundary-pushing visuals for a night to be remembered.
Following the launch, Basenji will travel to Perth to headline the infamous Sets On The Beach Festivalalongside acclaimed acts Thundamentals, Joyride and Masego. One of WA's best summer parties, the festival has previously been headed by ODESZA, Wave Racer and Miami Horror - a perfect audience to showcase his sonically textured new track, "Don't Let Go".
Since its anticipated release last month, "Don't Let Go" has received unanimous applause internationally, and at home - seeing support from community radio and triple j's Richard Kingsmill, who took the first listen.
Picked up in 2014 by Future Classic, debut singles "Dawn" and "Heirloom" flew up the iTunes Electronic charts. Following each release, Basenji was named the FBi Click Producer of the Year in 2014, playing his first Boiler Room show and performing at the iconic Sydney Opera House as part of Vivid LIVE Festival. 2015's debut EP Trackpad soared online and has since accumulated over 12.6 million plays on Spotify, with EP cuts "Petals" feat. Scenic and "Can't Get Enough" both topping the Hype Machine charts.
In between releasing new music, the producer has kept a busy live schedule, touring nationally several times, including his recent Homework tour; a run of free shows at universities across Australia. He also made appearances at some of the country's biggest festivals including Splendour In The Grass, Listen Out, OutsideIn, Beyond The Valley and Curveball, played a run of shows in Europe and supported Flume on a handful of dates across America in 2016.
We're thrilled to have Basenji back and excited to see what the rest of the year holds for the critically-acclaimed producer. Don't miss your chance to witness the world premiere of Basenji's incredible live show along with brand new material this November.
