LAPALUX [BRAINFEEDER/UK]

“I like to make music people can listen to several times and still find something new, buried in there somewhere. I enjoy complexities and getting immersed in sound so you forget who and where you are." MartynPepperell.com

Lapalux is 22 year old Stuart Howard, a very talented young man and the newest signee to Los Angeles based record label Brainfeeder (Daedelus, The Gaslamp Killer, Thundercat) Thurst into the spotlight by L.A star-picker Flying Lotus last year, Lapalux released his first widely available E.P, the beautifully woozy "When You're Gone" to critical acclaim.

Sensuous discordant melodies, Hyper colour synths, all topped with a drizzle of pop. Avant-garde tracks packed tight with sounds and samples leave the listener in a hazy, happy, sonic high.

__________________
oOoOO (TRIANGLE/USA)

"A spectral utterance from beyond the rave, this is like hearing your dance-pop past dragged up ... slowly" - The Guardian, UK

The overlap between pop and indie culture is one of the inspirations behind the music of oOoOO (pronounced 'Oh'), the moniker of San Fran producer Christopher Dexter Greenspan. Inserting Southern hip-hop, pop and rap influences into an electro-goth and witch house settings resulting in a spooky yet solid sound, and leaves oOoOO difficult to pigeonhole.

Signed to Tri Angle (How To Dress Well, Balam Acab, Clams Casino), oOoOO deviates from standard electronic conventions by taking shoegazey beats into eerily ethereal drag territory. Listening will make you feel like you are travelling backwards on a runaway chillwave ghost-train, and will haunt you long after the ride stops.

HIATUS KAIYOTE
"Soul music mixed with off kilted drums, sound effects, surreal vocals warm and fuzzy rhodes and a wonderful texture. The vocalist Nai Palm draws you in with her fusion of jazz vocals and harmonies. It’s very Little Dragon friendly with a tropical twists and dirty beats."
– Anthony Valadez KCRW FM- LA

"Oh yes!….hope they come to Europe soon, because the live show looks amazing"
Giles Peterson

"I can't get enough of these guys, Loving the experimental beats, lush strings, and low-slung Saturday afternoon soul on Hiatus Kaiyote's latest album 'Tawk Tomahawk'.
- Dan Digs KBCS FM - Seattle

"You don't hear stuff like this...ever. It's pretty incredible not to mention unique and mind-bending" Dave Ruby Howe - triple j

"Melbourne four-piece Hiatus Kaiyote will catapult you into a scene of a movie. They’ll provide the score and the visuals will follow. Their EP Tawk Tomahawk is a cinematic escape into a world of neo-soul, future soul, jazz, funk and wonky beats. There are hints of fellow Melbournite Kimbra about"- Razzamatazz

How so? Have you seen Hiatus Kaiyote? Do you know how the DJs in the main room are going to suit themselves for the night. WHO PLAYS BROSTEP HERE?

Exactly what I was going to ask. W T F ? Dont think i've heard any of those locals play bro-step before. But even if they did, why the hell would they play it at an event supporting internationals that don't play that sound?

Aside from that...
