Sunday Afternoon Bowls Club Show w/ Sleep D / Trevor / Roman Nails / Oil / Fia Fiell.
Come down for an afternoon of live electronics at one of Melbourne's best kept secrets, The Brunswick Bowling Club. $5 tinnies, $1 pool, what else do you need.
SLEEP D (DJ Set)
Fresh from a stint in Europe, Frankston's favourite sons grace the Bowls Club with a set of choice cuts. As well as operating the consistently excellent Butter Sessions imprint, Sleep D are themselves masters of crafting floor-ready bangers and are imminently releasing a new 12" on BSR.
James Vinciguerra is Trevor. "The Trevor Chest", a collection of four wonky, cooked cuts was released recently on Sydney label Paradise Daily. Live, Trevor disassembles and reassembles beats on the fly, not allowing room for complacency. Divisive, surely, but one of the greatest electronic spectacles to witness live.
ROMAN NAILS (12" launch)
CV techno luddite Roman Nails plays a rare set to launch his first 12" on UK label, Beat Concern, "All Hardware No Tools".
As Oil, Mat Spisbah blends the ambient with undoubtedly club-ready tracks. Soon to be dropping his second tape on Altered States Tapes, Clench, Oil is for my money one of the most underrated electronic musicians operating at the moment.
Carolyn Schofield's ambient works as Fia Fiell are mesmering. Having released the "A Hair, A Heap" cassette on Nice Music last year, Schofield continues to evolve her craft through live sets, having played at Freedom Time in June amongst others.
DJ Noem Obliv in-between sets.
Brunswick Bowling Club 104-106 Victoria St, East Brunswick 4pm / $10
