The Operatives are a collective of multi-talented musicians and curators of the clandestine Espionage gigs. Responsible for presenting tours of ground-breaking international talent and a platform for emerging artists to be heard; 2014 celebrates a new chapter in The Operatives: the Ten Years Strong Series and we’re proud to announce the full details of the TEEBS 2014 Australia and New Zealand presented with our friends at THUMP.
Whether it’s by the skateboard deck, paintbrush or on Roland SP 404 pads, Teebs captures blossoming, positive energy. In the few short years he’s been producing LA-based Mtendere Mandowa’s music swirls like his artwork –delicate, richly composed, textured expressions that have captured fans from across the globe since his debut album ‘Adour’. Part of the Brainfeeder family and a resident DJ at LA’s Dublab, his unique music has seen him co-found art and music collective My Hollow Drum, team up with Daedules and Jeremiah Jae and collaborate with Prefuse 73 on last years’ intriguing release ‘Sons of Morning’. His latest LP, ‘ESTARA’ and its accompanying art show ‘ANTE VOS’ (a collection of intricate paintings on repurposed record sleeves) is together it’s own complimentary creation – an artwork that you can admire for each minute detail and sheer heartfelt beauty.
With support from the loyal Operatives Agents and some of the finest emerging producers from across Australia – this is one unmissable showcase of seminal artistic talent.
