LISTEN UP YO!
We are so excited for this one!!
Boiler Room & Budweiser today shine a spotlight on Sydney’s burgeoning electronic music scene as they announce the next location for their global music discovery series, Budweiser x Boiler Room Discover What’s Brewing.
Broadcast live from Sydney on Wednesday, August 9, the program – which pairs international DJs with up-and-coming artists in their local cities – will be headlined by Los Angeles DJ and producer TOKiMONSTA, alongside fellow Californian Machinedrum and Sydney locals, BV and Aywy.
Acting as tour guides, TOKiMONSTA and Machinedrum will introduce and expose Sydney’s vibrant new music communities to the world, seeing BV and Aywy tell their stories on a global level, all broadcasted live around the world.
YES. YES. YES!
Ahead of her impending third full-length album Lune Rouge out October 6, TOKiMONSTA will bring her unique blend of contemporary & classic styles of electronic, dance and hip-hop to Australia. Known for her sets at festivals like Barcelona’s Sonar, LA’s Coachella and Burning Man in the Nevada Desert, her collaborations with Anderson .Paak, Jessie Ware and releases on Flying Lotus’ imprint Brainfeeder, prepare for TOKiMONSTA to take hold of Sydney.
Angeleno counterpart, Machinedrum holds a strong fan base worldwide with his melodic fuse of daring beat and vocal pair-ups, that has seen everyone from Pitchfork to Billboard discussing his euphoric, genre-bending sound. Last year, Machinedrum released his highly awaited Human Energy LP via Ninja Tune, and now makes a special return visit to Sydney for Discover What’s Brewing.
For the past six years, electronic trio BV have formulated club tools to fit their unbridled, highly followed live appearances. Percussion heavy tracks known for their unrelenting intensity and placements on outlets like XLR8R, FACT & THUMP, see BV placed at the forefront of Sydney’s club, pop and experimental DIY communities. Born from individual esteemed side-projects, Toronto-born Lavurn Lee (also Cassius Select, Fake), Jarred Beeler (DJ Plead) and Marcus Whale (Collarbones) – the BV trio will lead the local contingent, representing some of Sydney’s best musical minds. Following their recent self-titled mixtape release, the hardworking trio return to Boiler Room for Discover What’s Brewing.
Rounding out Discover What’s Brewing, is Sydney producer Aywy. Otherwise known as Ananthu Nair, Aywy is co-founder of Soundcloud-born record label and collective, Flow-Fi. From the ground upwards, Aywy has spread his swinging, bass-heavy compositions across the globe, drawing the attention of BBC Radio 1, Pigeons and Planes and Complex along the way. A self-starter with an official remix for Goldlink and a co-signed Maxwell edit under his belt, Aywy is ready to bring to his hip-hop tempered house re-works, and darker-shaded trap flirting bangers to Boiler Room.
Are you excited? ‘Cause if you couldn’t tell already, we certainly are!
