FEARLESS FEW SHOWCASE: THE WOODS, MSOM, GREYFIELD WOODS
A showcase of electronic-based music by Fearless Few collective members, whose synths, controllers, instruments and decks will be bringing dark atmospheres and delicious grooves to The Waiting Room, Stoke Newington.
Featuring live performances by The Woods, MSOM, and GREYFIELD WOODS, and DJ sets by tol10, KonDread and Diffuze.
Expect electronica, house, trip hop, alternative rock, balearic techno, dub techno, IDM, drum and bass, post-dubstep and ambient.
Whilst stylistically diverse, The Fearless Few are tied together by a shared ambition to better themselves as producers through the relentless tackling of creatively expansive, time-restricted production challenges. Over the years, members of the collective have remixed Iraqi oud music, built tracks using nothing but found sound from our kitchens, composed music for a children’s book promo, scored a scene from a horror script, followed Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies, hosted a takeover on Netil Radio, created radio show jingles, entered and won remix competitions and so much more. Some of the live sets on the night are bound to feature tracks produced in conjunction with some of these challenges, so expect an eclectic mix of genres, sensibilities and instrumentation.
The Woods 'Mesmerising folktronica'. The Woods is the music of Scottish producer, vocalist & multi-instrumentalist Johnny McFadzean. Featured on BBC Introducing & WorldwideFM, his haunting vocals intertwine with looped beats & intricate harmonies in 'very excellent James Blake-meets-Moon Safari vibes'.
GREYFIELD WOODS Debuting his pitch-black new album Sankta Lucia, Sam Holloway will be joined on drums by Arun Dhanjal (Zar), and creating pitch black, cinematic atmospheres that fuse the Bristol sound with post-dubstep.
MSOM is the founder of the Fearless Few, whose Scandinavian roots account for his polished and unapologetically poppy sound, broadly inspired by late 90s and early 00s electronica – particularly Warp – as well as minimal associated with earlier releases on Kompakt.
tol10 is a passionate vinyl collector, and his record box is always filled with a selection of vintage, new and rare records and dub-plates you will not hear anywhere else. Get ready for a mix of house, boogie, balearic and smooth techno; funk and disco inspired, futuristic music from cities like Chicago, Detroit, Berlin and Tokyo. It’s a raw but warm sound drenched with synths, fat bass-lines, seductive rhythms and soul.
Diffuze, the Fearless Few collective’s resident tech maven and an associate of the much-revered CDR night, will bring us a deep, atmospheric and hazy live set rooted in his passion for ambient, dub techno and IDM.
KonDread is a DJ and beat maker. As vinyl selector his collection oscillates around UK post-dubstep and hybrid bass electronic music. He produces music under different aliases, experimenting with atmospheric soundscapes and broken beats.
