Slugabed + Teebs at Rich Mix London tonight
Slugabed is Greg. He lives in Brighton and has been using the same buggy version of FruityLoops since he was 14. He's 27 now. That's 13 years of weirdly damaged bass music spewing from his odd little mind. On Facebook he describes his chosen genre as "steeped pears," while someone a bit more helpfully once tweeted that he "paints disconnect and loneliness in a tumble of fascinating beats." The point is, Greg drinks while he works, and he would have no idea how, for instance, he manages to be both of his time and so far ahead of it, to tell vivid stories without using words, or to make mercurial heaters that ought to be hung in aural art galleries considering the way he smears vibrant organic and synthetic sounds across an uncanny sonic valley. He has released with revered IDM labels like Ninja Tune and Planet Mu, helped launch indie imprints like DONKY PITCH and Activia Benz, DJed dingy bars in every corner of this earth, run many a Boiler Room broadcast, and soundtracked at least one psychedelic yoga session. Depending on the day, your ears may detect in his music bits of glitch, ambient, trap, future bass, new age, strange pop and/or/mostly "other." Ultimately, Slugabed is a producer unmoored—a superb floating sound island unto himself.
The newly formed Slugabed Live Band features Greg Slugabed on Synthesizers & Electronics, Sam from The Physics House Band on Percussion / Dan Berry (mr jukes) on Saxophone
Teebs + Slugabed at Rich Mix London on the 9th Nov.
“a step above genre-bending; this is genre-carving” – Exclaim
Hypnotic. Warm. Organic. Tumbling. Pastoral. Ramshackle. Blissful. Expansive.
These are just some of the words that have been used to describe the work of Mtendere Mandowa, better known as Teebs.
Producer, painter, and a key member of Brainfeeder clan. Recent years have seen Teebs surge toward the top of the so-called “beat scene”. Though his affiliation with Flying Lotus certainly has something to do with his ascent, it’s ultimately the music – a billowing brand of beautifully off-kilter, hip-hop-colored beat construction – that has set Mandowa apart from what has become an increasingly crowded field of like-mind producers.
As well as his productions, his live shows have developed quite a reputation for themselves. His uncanny knack for sculpting organic-sounding beats are backed up by earth quaking bass. His cinematic tracks are known for taking people on a journey through his textured sonic canvasses.
“A pleasant exercise in loop-chopping naturalism– but even through all the foliage, you can still nod your head to it” – Pitchfork
KUTMAH in London @dollop_uk@bigdadarecords@kxxtz@chris_p_cuts#aldobsonjr@electrowerkz
+ Al Dobson Jr.
+ Chris P Cuts
01/11/17 - Electrowerkz, London
Kutmah (pronounced koot/mah) will release his long overdue debut album “The Revenge Of Black Belly Button!” (or TROBBB!) via Big Dada on 11th August 2017. The record features an incredible cast of guests – Gonjasufi, Jonwayne, Natureboy Flako, Ta’Raach, Jeremiah Jae, Zeroh, Zackey Force Funk, N8NOFACE, Sach, Akello G Light and DJ Chris P Cuts – spanning experimental meditative, Zennist loops; crackly oddball beats and abstract raps; as far as outright punk/noise and even folk/blues.
At its heart it’s an incredibly sentimental record, heavily referential to his past but also future-facing, and not just in its sonics. “I wanted to make a record for loners. You know some records have that ‘Hey! I’m at a festival!’ sound? Well I wanted to do the opposite of that,” he laughs.
It’s fitting that the album arrives via Big Dada – a label that helped shape his vision. “Big Dada started the same year I started DJing. Not DJing in clubs or making tapes. Literally when I first touched turntables,” he explains. “I knew I had to find that other type of music to fit where my head was at. Leftfield beats and abstract rhymes were what I was looking for and alongside Jazz Fudge, Mo Wax, Asphodel and Fondle ‘Em, Big Dada was what I was digging.” Tickets: www.alttickets.com/kutmah-tickets
