This is one of those events that showcase a defining overall “Melbourne sound” with a unique and original slant on hip-hop beats that can truly be called contemporary urban electronica. Screw “Melbourne Bounce”, you need to be listening right here to understand where it’s at.
Brothers Hand Mirror (beatsmith/vocalist Oscar Key Sung and singer/rapper/artist HTMLFlowers) are on tip with a lot of the warm, fuzzy bass-driven hip-hop sounds often called wonky or abstract, sounds more and more prevalent around Melbourne lately.
Their Bandcamp offers seven very nice treats for your listening pleasure, all available (with exception of the first EP, which is advertised as available at their shows) for free or pay as you please.
This special showing is complimented by the talented backing of Wooshie (of This Thing), Outerwaves, Tincture and 2 Bright Lake DJs. I’m definately giving this one the Haarp Media thumbs-up.
Starts 8pm. The Gasometer, 484 Smith Street. $12.
