Speak Beats- 21st Century Visualised Triphop

Four of Melbourne's finest purveyors of lush sounds ranging from smooth liquid triphop, dub and sample based beat landscapes to squelchy, 8-bit glitch unite to deliver a night of synaesthetic delight for your auditory and visual pleasure. V.J. accompaniment by Shower Screens (Gertrude Projection Festival) and Siadatz (Uber Lingua) will be augmenting the multimedia experience of fresh local producers of organic electronic music, White Minus Red, Ionic, Editer and Paranym.

White Minus Red combine elements of triphop, dub and jazz, live instrumentation with Ableton powered technology and soulful vocals. Fronted by Sarah McDonald (ex Symbiosis, Bois et Charbon), with Liam O'Connell (Agency Dub Collective, 30B), Ben Ganley (Agency Dub Collective), Jon Hopkins (Agency Dub Collective, Malicine) and Leigh Hegg (OffBeat@Horse Bazaar, Plankton), White Minus Red have graced many a festival stage (Falls, Renaissance, Folk Rhythm + Life, Sustainable Living Festival) and are ones to watch.

Expat Novacastrian duo, Ionic have been getting many a party started since relocating to Melbourne with their unique and tasty blend of sample based, beat laden electronica, as well as gracing venues, galleries and festivals (Gertrude Projection Festival, Icicles and Raindrops). To follow up their latest release, Prototype 2.0, the Ionic lads, Stu and Div are in the process of recording a new album, so keep your ears open.

Editer is the latest project of Soup, a.k.a Thomas Campbell (of Miso fame), and he is joined by Dave Williams (Miso), Willow Stalhut (violinstress extraordinare), Richard Burns (trumpet slinger from the Red Eyes, The Snappers ) Thom Mitchell on percussion (Monsoon Moon, Kate and the Vigonaughts). Smooth, lush, deep and dark dub-scapes peppered with crisp beats and tasty instrumental melodicism is the result of this collaboration, so be sure to come and check them for yourself- they're most likely to be one of your new favourite bands.

Armed with an MPC, a synthesiser and effects, Paranym layers loops live, playing beats and melodies on the fly.. sometimes gritty and funky, sometimes soulful and heartfelt , Paranym delivers a live show that encompasses a myriad of styles-from crunchy hiphop breaks to 8-bit electronica to smooth dub.. It's a sampleadelic trip that will keep crowds moving and leave their minds reeling. Be sure to check him out.

At Northcote Social Club, Sunday 20th of July. Doors open at 7:30, music starts at 8pm.
Hope to see you on the D-floor!!!
