Continuing its mission to bring together the best cutting edge electronic musicians in the world, the Red Bull Music Academy is mounting a triple-header tour that brings a bass heavy assault, combining three of the word's biggest and rising names. MARTYN, ILLUM SPHERE and TOKIMONSTA at four locations in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
Where in Sydney?
Who are the DJS?
MARTYN is the senior artist of the trio. With a sound that has become emblematic for all that’s forward thinking in dubstep Martyn pushes a defiant out-of-the-box mentality into his every artistic venture, scorning genre convention and relentlessly embracing the new. Drawing on techno and house as much as a still fertile Dubstep scene it's no surprise that the Dutch DJ, producer and 3024 labelboss was drafted to mix the landmark 50th entry in Fabric London's esteemed mix series.
Described as “one of the most special and unique artists to come out of the UK” by Hyperdub first lady Okonika, Manchester's ILLUM SPHERE exploded off the back of his 'The Incoming EP' and is only the second English person to play at LA's pivotal Low End Theory night. Add to that the gleaming praise from the likes of Thom Yorke, Mary-Anne-Hobbs, Benji B and the Brainfeeder crew, it's no wonder he has already become one of the UK's most hotly tipped producers.
LA's TOKIMONSTA is the first lady of the Brainfeeder crew. She is praised by the very best in avant-garde hip hop and electronica. After being highly recommended by Flying Lotus, Mary Anne Hobbs immediately featured an exclusive mix of TOKiMONSTA tracks on her BBC Radio 1 program. She has been praised by the very best in avant-garde hip hop and electronica for her ability to fuse vintage styles with progressive sounds into something unique. Her live shows are exciting as well as intricate and fiercely energetic, using a laptop and other pieces of multimedia gear.
