Ryan Hemsworth is a Canadian producer of some renown with a pre-disposition for hip-hop/RnB styles of beats heavy with filters, effects , sampling, and simple emotive melodies akin to the style dubbed as chillwave by some.
He’ll be playing a midweek event at Richmond’s Corner Hotel this Wednesday, and is supported by Sydney’s rapidly rising electronic star Wave Racer, whose approach to electronica is fun and thrilling. He confesses a love for vocoders and arpeggios, and produces light-hearted, slamming and bassy synth lines that sound like they come straight from a jacked-up Nintendo 64.
Add other support acts Chiefs, Tomderson and Deer, and you’re on a winner for Wednesday night. This event is curated by Future Classic, BBE and Acclaim Magazine.
Starts 8pm. Corner Hotel, 57 Swan Street, Richmond. Tickets $33.
