Watsky
Watsky
A successful slam poet turned rapper, Watsky first gained attention through ‘Russell Simmons’ HBO Def Poetry’, and a later burst of viral success for his fast rapping. At every turn, Watsky has refused to be pigeonholed, following up his speed rap success with 2013 LP Cardboard Castles, an eccentric ode to creativity, and 2014’s Anderson. Paak-produced All You Can Do. After a hiatus to work on new material, Watsky pivots again, this time to prose, returning simultaneously with the essay collection How To Ruin Everything, published by Plume/Penguin-Random House, of which Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda writes, “funny, subversive […] you find yourself nodding your head in wonder and recognition.” How To Ruin Everything debuted in the New York Times best selling list. In total, he has created 4 studio albums and two live albums. Watsky released his fifth album, ‘x Infinity,’ August 2016, describing it as his most ambitious project yet.

DD Dumbo
DD Dumbo
D.D Dumbo is Oliver Hugh Perry, an astonishing and highly original songwriter from a small Australian town called Castlemaine, an hour outside the Victorian capital of Melbourne.

D.D. Dumbo's output stretches back to 2013, when he released his self-recorded debut EP, Tropical Oceans. Led by the spooky strut of the title-track, the lo-fi four song-set of blues- laced, deconstructed pop, announced Perry as an exciting newcomer fluent in a language all his own.

People took notice. Performing solo with a 12-string electric guitar, two drums and a bunch of effect pedals, D.D Dumbo made an impression at the 2013 SXSW Music conference. In the following 12 months he was invited to support the likes of Warpaint, Tune-Yards, St Vincent, Jungle, Iron & Wine, and do live sessions for NPR, Daytrotter and BBC Radio 1.

Soon after D.D Dumbo signed to 4AD, and in 2014 he toured the UK for the first time, supporting both Daughter and Tame Impala. He played Splendour in the Grass in Australia, and returned to Europe for a handful of dates (including a slot at Pitchfork Paris), as well as a debut tour of the US.

He recorded his debut album, Utopia Defeated, in a bunker at 4AD's London studio over the winter of 2015. Across ten songs, Utopia Defeated conjures a vivid, wide-eyed musical landscape teeming with nervous energy and exotic evocations of the world at large. Backed by skittering percussion, the signature elastic bounce of Perry's 12- string guitar, and a fanciful quiver of obtuse sounds, Utopia Defeated hinges on Perry's expressive voice, and the dissonance of an artist compelled to question his position in the natural world.

The resulting sonic universe is a collision of blues licks, echoes of world music, strident '80s pop, the kinetic energy of dance music, and splashes of outsider art akin to Captain Beefheart, one of D.D Dumbo's touchstones.

The strikingly unplaceable nature of Utopia Defeated is the sound of Perry wrestling to make the intangible, tangible. It's illustrative of the doublethink Perry needs to create D.D. Dumbo -- long hours of meticulous work, to make some of the most singularly unique, playful, and seductive pop music of recent times.

D.D Dumbo is currently working on a live show that will bring his remarkable debut album to life.
