Howler, MELBOURNE, VIC
Simona Castricum brings her 'Triumph' EP national tour to Melbourne, performing at Howler on Thursday 5th October, supported by Various Asses, Other Places and Onyx.
'Triumph', is out now and proves an immersive new direction for one of Melbourne's most loved beatmakers. Featuring guest vocals by Cultra, 'Triumph' unifies Simona's diverse experience across stage, percussion and club modes to produce an inspiring, rhythmic and uplifting hit.
The follow up to her 2016 album '#TriggerWarning40', 'Triumph' is a determined change in mood from Simona - with bold remixes and darker excursions into club space. Berlin vocalist and producer A rea Negrot (BPitch Control) gives 'Triumph' a more brutal industrial arrangement while Melbourne's Various Asses develops 'Breakfast of Champions' emotional textures into trap, leaving Simona to move head first into Dutch acid inspired techno bliss in 'Collect' on the B-Side.
"'Triumph' is a collaboration with a few of my heroes - a chance to curate a release that takes in the clubs I work in and the people who really inspire me. A rea Negrot is one of my all time faves who takes performance and techno and beatmaking to a whole new level. Various Asses' detailing in textures and mixing is so evocative - to have my music reimagined through their lens breaks into exciting curated experimentation. They had free reign and it works." - Simona.
This event takes place on the Wurundjeri lands of the Kulin nation - soveriegnty has never been ceeded.
