Under A Blast EP Launch

Fri Jan 19 2018

freshfrees presents a night of underground Sydney artists showcasing their unique selections of electronic music at Red Rattler on January 19th.

Erin Nortje's new hard-hitting project UNDER A is releasing the much anticipated debut Ep, BAST. Soon to be released, BAST takes the listener through an unkind thrashing barebone voyage through the mind of UNDER A, exploring his journey to find a sound. The Ep is available soon @undera.bandcamp.com/releases. Erin Nortje hasn't been producing music for long but has still managed to astound audiences at events such as Gadge 002 and Sounds are Sounds' Ultra Collective Takeover. His live set for UNDER A is an "intense blend of acid, techno and barebone synth" which is sure to cause involuntary movements at the audience's expense. This upcoming show at Red Rattler will be an unheard set with a spicy improvised tone. passive-kneeling will be providing UNDER A's confronting mix of visuals live. Delving into challenging imagery that represents the project's unique flavour.

DOORS 7pm $15 tickets at the door.

Presale tickets available through https://www.freshfrees.com/undera/

Reesepushkin is an experimental alias of Jay Cooper, formerly known as JaysWays. Originally created as a comic book character, the reesepushkin project is a deconstruction of the beatmaking process itself, and an exploration of self-aware electronic music. Jay Cooper will be mixing tracks that have inspired and informed the concept as well as performing unreleased material developed over the last 5 years in Los Angeles, Vancouver and Sydney.

Having played sounds inspired by the Autonomic movement and labels such as Mindset and Samurai under the alias MNWMN, Sophist is Michael Newman's venture into new territory. By moving particularly towards UK techno, Sophist blends a wide range of genres and aims to both acknowledge past influences, though also to look into sounds of the future.

Kcin is the new project of Australian drummer/producer Nicholas Meredith. His sound-world, although wet through with electronic and digital elements, draws significantly from the natural world: monolithic structures, human biology, water. Working with themes of uncertainty and environmental change. His music is deeply personal and highly visceral. Moving from moments of stillness to complete sonic destruction. Meredith's history as a jazz drummer and improviser combined with his embrace of the infinite opportunities offered by technology infuse these compositions with a freedom of rhythm and structure that is energising.

Melbourne based producer Varro explores techno with a refined aesthetic. Recently released Ep Mount Mabu out via Testprint Records available:https://testprintrecords.bandcamp.com/releases
