Whomp Music – in collaboration with Orphen Audio – present another glitch-hop styled show at Brown Alley this Friday.
This time they are presenting Thriftworks, a Californian with a knack for producing tracks not overwrought with glitchy whomps and overly-sugary VSTs. His beats are a combination of compelling wonky hip-hop rhythms offset by West Coast-styled synth melodies with hauntingly beautiful and arpeggiated composition.
To add on to this main event player, Hypnotech of addictech.com fame will be down to drop a set from what should be a massive crate of tricks, as Addictech is one of the world’s best sources for underground glitch-hop cuts.
To round out the international line-up, we have our own Angus Green representing Melbourne. This young and formidable producer has previously been making waves internationally with previous short releases on Adapted and Hopskotch Records.
Green will be releasing his first full-length album – Love Is Never Enough – which breaks the mould of the stagnant glitch-hop genre and ventures into more soulful territory. He’ll be performing this new album live (electronically) with some other goodies chucked in too. Expect him to impress just as much as the other two headliners.
Other acts appearing are Tar-Nay, Stinkwood and Altruism, who’ll also be playing their own tracks for your pleasure. You can purchase tickets beforehand for $27.50.
Starts 10pm. Brown Alley, 585 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne CBD. $27.50.
