On 7 July, we returned to Home Club with Mono/Poly and special guests to present a sequel to the collaborative Brainfeeder session, which took place in Los Angeles last year.
In defying the laws of tradition, the LA-based music producer, Mono/Poly (born Charles Dickerson), has managed to outstrip the logistics of multi-genre producing. Known for his distinct madness of face melting bass, paired with his dreamy astral soundscapes of glitch-based hip hop. His debut EP, The George Machine, was released in the fall of 2009 which was followed by his first full-length solo album Paramatma (Tasteful Licks Records) in the spring of 2010.
In 2011, Mono/Poly released the highly acclaimed Manifestations, making a strong debut on Flying Lotusʼ Brainfeeder imprint and it continues its heavy rotation being played by the likes of Radiohead, Erykah Badu and Jay Scarlett at BBC Radios 1XTRA. Mono/Poly has also been contributing tracks and remixes on Warp Records and Planet Mu alongside fellow LA natives Flying Lotus and Nosaj Thing. His gravitational attraction to revolutionary sounds has gained vast recognition among listeners and artists as one of the hottest up-and-coming producers in the world.
Also making their SYNDICATE debut - Digga Man Dope. A production duo that comprises of Masterpiece (PushinʼOn) and Intrigue, the collaboration was initiated by their common interest in seminal Japanese act, Hifana. They have been holding it down at the Turn Up The Heat! nights at Blu Jaz with explosive sets that witnessed turntables wizardry, button-pushing madness on 16-pad controllers and a whole lot of hip hop.
Daisuke Tanabe (Japan) and Strangeloop (Los Angeles) were the surprise guests for the night.
The SYNDICATE residents kept the beats and bass program going and as usual, visual maestro, Brandon Tay, controls the sights for the night.
This SYNDICATE x Brainfeeder sessions is presented by Homeclub & supported by Obey Clothing.
