As Sly & The Family Stone once sang – it’s a family affair. The Operatives have teamed up with fellow Melbourne music purveyors Condensed Milk to present MILES BONNY.
The Kansas city soul singer, songwriter, trumpeter and DJ has been carving out a name for himself since the 90’s, living in the Midwest and producing hip-hop. Now, his carefully crafted music explores honesty and social awareness in a variety of styles and has seen him recently collaborating with various producers including Suff Daddy and Ta-Ku. Since his latest adventure has taken him off-grid to the desert of New Mexico don’t miss a rare chance to hear his soulful and emotionally connective music in person!
Hailing from Hobart, Hannah Lesser and Julius Dowson are ALTA. A couple that, together, have mixed blues, Madlib-inspired samples and smooth vocals to take over bars and beats across Melbourne. Their live show is something else: flickering each other sly smiles as they play, Julius loops lush beats around Hannah’s spine-tingling lyrics and offer listeners a glimpse into their shared world of down-tempo trip-hop.
Supports include Operatives and Condensed Milk Agent AMIN PAYNE, who will be teaming up with CAZEAUX O.S.L.O. while ABLE8 drops his infectious beats with soul singer Alex Vella-Horne. Mysterious ensemble COCA NOIRE will be performing as well as a very special guest from Singapore – Darker Than Wax co-founder and shining selector FUNK BAST*RD.
Door Sales only: $10 before 10pm, $15 AFter
