The Operatives and ACCLAIM Magazine are proud to present the return of Espionage in 2 amazing parts on Anzac day.
First up with The Sound of Tomorrow and the LA-based music collective – and Beats1 primetime show Soulection across Australia in April. Their sound is very much their own movement – teaming warm and timeless soul with the crisp cuts and sounds that are unmistakably millennial. Soulection’s team of international producers might be found working on anything from a Drunk in Love remix to an original deep jazz jam. Their brand of shows and manifesto ‘The Sound of Tomorrow’ is already renowned for having one of the most energetic, passionate and all-inclusive music experiences out there – this is one club night not to miss.
It’s impossible not to be seduced by the love-songs for internet ears that ESTA produces – a mix of classic hip-hop cues, vinyl fuzz, treated vocals and a tasteful dose of trap (all of which you can hear in his latest EP ‘Feathers’). The head of A&R for the label JOE KAY is responsible for digging for the timeless ‘Sound Of Tomorrow’, and undoubtedly a persistent and careful DJ, with his own slowed-down edits for when the mood is right under the disco lights. When The Whooligan isn’t managing bookings for Soulection, he’s a multi-faceted and genre-bending DJ, whose shared the stage with the likes of Rick Ross, Lupe Fiasco, Kid Sister, Jazzy Jeff and J Rocc over a decade long career in music.
And featuring the amazing Melbourne Favourite Om Unit, Over the past five years, this has led him to distill various influences — hip-hop, dubstep, ambient, jungle, footwork — into a fluid take on sound system culture that sidesteps the pitfalls of genres and pastiche and creates new potentials for exploration and inspiration, with many following in his footsteps.
And The original Don, Mark Pritchard, who needs no explanation.
All star Melbourne support TBA.
