Posted 31 Mar 2011 by Roscoe
Beats Extravaganza - May 6th @ XOYO
Combining amazing live performances from the legendary Affine Records and Kompakt, with award winning visuals from London Production Houses Not To Scale and VJ HobbyBoy.
Support from new men's accessories brand Stighlorgan and a separate Room 2 launch party for new DJ collective Oonst (the residents behind Superfilth, Trouble Vision and Deadfish)
The launch of "Hear No Evil Presents..." is set to showcase a huge melting pot of European creative music talent whilst keeping one eye firmly on the dance floor.
Dorian Concept (Ninja Tune/Affine Records) - Live
Arguably the most talented producer to come out of the whole 'beats' movement so far we have been following his work for some time and are extremely excited to welcome him to XOYO. The Austrian keyboard wizkid will be performing live showcasing new material on Ninja Tune and Affine Records.
Kenton Slash Demon (Tartelet/Kompakt) - Live
Copenhagen based, Kenton Slash Demon's sound is both organic and futuristic and goes way beyond the confines of standard dance music. They have been described by German music magazine De:Bug as "house music as Indian free jazz opera" which goes some way towards explaining why such varied DJ/producers as Claude Von Stroke, Hot Chip, Gold Panda, Brodinski and Tiefschwarz count themselves as fans.
In a short amount of time Deadboy has racked up DJ sets at venues such as Fabric and Plastic People, mixes for FACT magazine and Radio 1 alongside various dates throughout Europe and abroad. Playing a mix of new and old garage, UK funky, house, bassline and dancehall he's rapidly gained support from the likes of Kode9, Modeselektor, Zinc and Martyn.
Mosca (Fat City/Nightslugs)
2010 was a great year with his debut 'Square One EP' kick-starting the Night Slugs label, from which 'Nike' was voted no.1 in XLR8R's favourite tracks of 2010. Since then he's remixed Four Tet and Foals while 'Tilt Shift' on Fat City united ravers from grime youngers to soulful house heads.
Si Begg (Noodles)
Longtime Hear No Evil composer/sound designer, Noodles main man and all round electronica legend Si Begg brings his unique take on wonky techno into the mix.
Throwing Snow (Ho Tep)
Having remixed Gold Pandalast year, Hear No Evil producer Throwing Snow is one to watch in 2011 as he prepares for coming remixes for Ninja Tunes and Domino Records.
Plus a live UK Debut from Austrian producer Zanshin (Affine), DJ sets from Oonst/Deadfish residents Oli DAB vs Robin, Arrowsotothesky and Trouble Vision main man Mr Solid Gold.
