Featuring some of Melbourne’s finest locals, expect the ‘Alley to be heaving with diverse sounds from around the globe.
TALL BLACK GUY
From humble origins in Detroit, raised on a healthy diet of Motown, Jazz and early Hip Hop – Terrel Wallace (aka TALL BLACK GUY) has become a standard bearer for the current hip hop beats scene. Through a steady stream of productions filled with incredibly clever sample flips and deft production chops, he has won fans across the world, including Gilles Peterson (who included him on one of his Brownswood Bubblers albums), Lefto, Anthony Valadez, Jazzy Jeff, J Rocc, Questlove and countless others. With the tangible beginnings of worldwide recognition, TALL BLACK GUY has established himself to be one of the most influential producers working today.
SAM BINGA brings a hyperactive influence of juke’s chopped-up 808s, the embrace of dubstep’s half-time flow at a higher tempo and is helping re-mould d n’ b to a fresh audience. With his collaborative releases alongside Om Unit and Addison Groove and his recent ‘AYO’ hot pink 10” release on Critical’s sidearm Modulations, he’s steadily build a name for himself. Fast emerging and yet with a wealth of production behind him under different aliases SAM BINGA’s signature mix of dirty-south swagger, Chi-town footwork and UK pressure is fresh, weird and strictly fire on the dance floor.
