Event // SYNDICATE x BRAINFEEDER MONO / POLY

SYNDICATE x BRAINFEEDER

Looks like I’m breaking the chain of the blog-freeze with some more news from the Syndicate camp. I know I’ve been blogging a lot of news regarding what the fine folk at Syndicate do, but I do think that their events and ideas are some of the more interesting ones that happen here in Singapore.

Anyway, they’re teaming up with Brainfeeder, this Saturday, 7 June, for a night of head-crunching bass over at Home Club. It sounds like an absolute blast, so here y’go, a trailer for the event after the listings.

Oh, and the party’s proudly supported by the good folk over at Obey SG.

Event // SYNDICATE SUB SESSIONS x MUSICITY

Syndicate SUB Sessions x Musicity

Singaporean audio visual collective, Syndicate, are putting up the second installment of the Syndicate SUB Sessions, this time featuring Jon Hopkins and Syndicate’s own Max Lane with visuals by Brandon Tay.

I’m pretty excited, because I missed the first one and that featured MUON and Gema. This here is a video of what went down, in true signature Syndicate fashion:

Jon Hopkins also has a Soundcloud page, and if the music doesn’t whet your appetite, then maybe you’re reading the wrong blog.

So if you’re interested in going, these are the details you’ll need to take note of:

Date: 2 June 2012, Saturday
Time: 2000H – 2200H

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series feat. Mount Kimbie

The first time I was listening to Mount Kimbie, I was road trippin’ across Jakarta to Bandung. I believe I immediately branded them as IDM, with equal parts dance as much as dubstep.

Mount Kimbie’s music takes you places, and this little gem of a concert by NPR Music, as part of their Tiny Desk Concert series, shows us how the new guys do it old skool. Strip down the stage to a little desk, filled with as much or as little equipment, and distill the essence of what any aural artist is trying to convey. I sensed a sort of peaceful solitude and personal conversation in this one. Enjoy.
