We humbly present, for our launch and his debut performance on Australian shores, Parisian MPC master Neue Grafik.
Staple of prolific label and collaborative Beat X Changers, Neue Grafik blends passion for the deep and soulful with a beat-centric finesse in hip hop and garage rhythm, with his latest EP "Roy" garnering early support from heads such as Bradley Zero of Rhythm Section, Kai Alce, Max Graef, Mad Rey and more.
After a slew of releases in the early 2010s, publications such as XLR8R, THUMP and Le Mellotron began to take notice of his unique French take on UK garage, melding with it Detroit tone, African polyrhythm and German lo-fi qualities, pushing his production onto the international stage with his 2014 Slime Recordings release "Glasgow" receiving glowing review from none other than luminary Laurent Garnier himself.
Performing tracks from his latest and forthcoming releases alongside improvised jams on a live 2 x MPC + Nord setup, with no less than homegrown prodigy S I L E N T J A Y on warm up duties, hot off the recent sold-out Howler tour de force and acclaimed album "Come Fly With Me (The Wraptape)", we are excited to share with you the first edition of State of Soul.
