Summary...And it just doesn't stop!!!!
Espionage is back with yet another amazing lineup of agents.
Hudson Mohawke (Warp/Scotland) Rustie (Warp/Scotland) Balam Acab (Tri-Angle/USA)
and some of your favourite operatives TBA
An unfortunate bit of misadventure kept Hudmo from joining the Flying Lotus-Dam Funk-GLK bill earlier this year, however Hudson will be coming back even stronger after releasing his devastating Satin Pathers and Pleasure Principle EPs this year.
Joining Hudmo is fellow Glaswegian and label mate Rustie, with his debut Glass Swords hitting speakers with as many certified bangers as there were no he didnt moments. A mix of RnB Crunk, 90s House and Techno, Trance, Dubstep and Ocharina Of Time, Glass Swords sees the young producer fitting in perfectly at Warp Records as he acknowledges the Acid House of people like LFO but uses this inspiration to create something unlike anything youve heard before.
This is Rusties first Australian appearance and will likely be a sell out event, so if your new to the sounds and looking for a musical slap in the face from the one of the youngest and genuinely innovative artists working now, get in quick.
Signee to buzz-label Tri Angle Records, Balam Acabs debut album Wander/Wonder has received an amazing reception, winning rave reviews from the likes of Pitchfork and Resident Advisor. Drawing comparisons to Burial, Balam Acab uses delicate, pitched up vocals and ethereal, echoed melodies combined with deep bass to create a completely enveloping listening experience.
Live, expect spellbinding experimental pop music that pushes boundaries both in terms of songcraft and production. Wander/Wonder is reworked in a live setting, with tracks disassembled and rearranged to create an entirely fresh sound.
