Save the date – Saturday September 21 Astral People and Yes Please are back at the Factory Theatre with another lineup of forward thinking and occasionally esoteric electronica.
The UK’s clever bass dude Zomby is heading things up with hyped Indiana rapper Freddie Gibbs (showing more love for gravel-voiced MCs with cloudy beats after booking the Kushed God Smoke DZA last year).
Topping off the lineup are BADBADNOTGOOD – classically trained jazz musicians who play Odd Future and Waka Flocka Flame tunes – future techno maestro Jam City, Objekt (with the sound of Berlin’s underground circa 5am), the techno-space-soul of Laurel Halo, local bass genius Mark Pritchard, headphone-music-makers Cosmo’s Midnight, Oisima and Andras Fox with future soul singer Oscar Key-Sung, and local crafter of electronic pop Rainbow Chan.
However, most exciting of all is Astral People presents Since I Left You. Casting aside the 12 and a half year gap since we last heard from The Avalanches, Astral People have brought together their top roster to recreate the all-time classic album live on stage (with the blessings of The Avalanches).
