Hip-hop and experimental DJ Co. Fee has quickly been gaining attention in the LA arts scene. An LA native, Co. Fee recently released his latest EP, Bermuda Skills Club, a skillfully orchestrated compilation of music which stays consistent with the likes of Madlib, Blockhead and Nujabes. His collective, My Hollow Drum, defines their music to be a “sound collage chemistry with death drum anthems, dimlit psychedelia, sugar coated dirt, moments of melodic bliss along with with the squishiest of textures, lounge boom-bap and art of all mediums.” The dude has a ton of potential, check out his free EP for yourself: http://myhollowdrum.com/downloads.
If Moses Sumney could use one word to describe his artistic career, it would be “precocious.” A self-taught musician, Moses did not start performing solo until he was 20 years old, right as he transferred into UCLA. Music has since allowed him to perform in iconic venues like Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center, the House of Blues, and the Hard Rock Cafe. Moses will be putting a unique twist on classic genres like indie rock, soul, jazz, and folk with his innovative scatting and vocal loops.
He also really, really likes pizza.
Then at 7:30 PM in Royce Hall, see The Robert Glasper Experiment with:
Having been touted as a child prodigy since his earliest years, pianist Austin Peralta has cultivated a remarkably diverse and eclectic career over the course of the 16 years he has been playing. In addition to his magnetizing pianism and tangible passion for music that abounds each time he sits down to play, Peralta, now 21 years old, cannot be lopped into a particular category—his art is the product of a familiarity and experience with all types of music and a transcendence of the limitations between genres. He has collaborated with Stanley Clarke, The Cinematic Orchestra, Flying Lotus, Erykah Badu, Thundercat, Sa-Ra Creative Partners, and, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, A among many others. Peralta is a member of the Los Angeles-originated Brainfeeder label started by Coltrane-descendent Flying Lotus, another native Angeleno and music producer with cosmic sensibilities. Having recently made contributions to Amon Tobin’s self-titled box-set with a reinterpretation, as well as releasing a reinterpretation of Sun Ra’s music on the All City imprint, Peralta is gearing up for his next full length album to be released on Brainfeeder this year.
+ José James and Taylor McFerrin.
