Atlanta-based support will include house producer Stefan Ringer aka REKchampa / Black Suede (of NDATL Muzik, CGI Records, Harsh Riddims, The Love Below + more.), multimedia artist and musician CELINES (of Pallas and BIG DED) and a performance work by Port Conjunctive.
Pamela_ and her sons is the solo music project of Alessandra Hoshor, an Atlanta-based multimedia artist, and 1/2 of evil dance project BIG DED. Their microtonal compositions build up from slow perceptual movements into heavy dance sets full of deconstructed vocals. Pamela_ is microtonal cerebral dance music. Fragmented, off-kilter anxiety techno with an emphasis on texture, pattern, and rhythm. Upcoming releases include a full-length LP, Hurt Plaza [CGI Records], a solo cassette (Golden Paradise) on Truly Bald Records, and a split cassette (Sunburn/Solid Firm) with Kastella on Popnihil.
Sequoyah Murray is an Atlanta-based producer/songwriter/visual artist. He released his debut album ‘True Fun’ in 2015. The album was inspired by the likes of Experience era Jimi Hendrix, Arthur Russell, Dwight Treble, Zap Mama, Massive Attack, Prince and Caetano Veloso… Sequoyah’s compositions are familial collaborations; self-produced, and inspired by classic Brazilian, African and contemporary pop music, bound together by powerful and distinctive vocal work. He regularly collaborates with his father, Kenito Murray, an Atlanta-based jazz instrumentalist, record producer and engineer.
CELINES is the solo music project of Valentina Tapia (of Pallas and BIG DED.) Their compositions are full of imagery and dynamic energy, dark, playful and animated.
Stefan Ringer’s sound is undeniably on key and uncontrollably groove stricken.
- That’s Deck
Though he’s laid out an alluring aesthetic that combines soulful house, dreamy boogie leads and his own ad-libbed vocals across 12-inches for NDATL, People’s Potential Unlimited and Argot, Ringer started his musical journey exploring rap. He grew up in Stockbridge, about 25 minutes out of the city, and in high school he was obsessed with Dipset, the influential Harlem collective that ruled the radio for a brief period in the early ‘00s…. Though the beats Ringer makes are far more subdued than the huge sample-based rhythms Just Blaze made for Cam’ron, you can hear that influence in the exuberance of Ringer’s house tracks…
- Resident Advisor
Port Conjunctive is a collaborative performance duo that poeticly and directly attempts to interrogate systems of oppression.
