WBEEZA (Live) (Third Ear, Peckham Fly)
Wbeeza's unique sound takes in the history and lineage of 20 years of house music and techno with a fresh twist which comes from growing up and living in Peckham, South London. His productions have a striking balance of jacking basement vibes with swinging jazz grooves and tough acid tinges. Wbeeza's killer live set is particularly refined, balancing the power of motorized techno with organic rolling polyrhythms, bringing some much-needed freshness to the capital's dance music scene. When playing live, Wbeeza is generally not mixing tracks. Instead he is creating music on the fly from beats and pieces to create a largely improvised performance that is different every night. Crowds at Free Rotation festival, secretsundaze, Tape Club and Watergate in Berlin have already been rocked by his set.
"'SE15' that's me" says Wbeeza, who was born and raised in Peckham South London and now has his studio in Greenwich, South London.
"Being the youngest to 6 bros and 3 sisters I was influenced by a broadrange of music from the moment I left the womb, so that shit was flowing! I started toying with music from the age of 14, writing lyrics in them days, and well known for beat boxing!". I used to kick some heavy weight title beats with a couple of friends, don't ask me how but yeah I did it, although singing was never my forte. Anyway, at the age of 16 I was encouraged to take up music where I found my true passion.
Signed to Guy McCreery's Third Ear Recordings, which has long been forging the link between London and Detroit through their ongoing and highly regarded Detroit Beatdown series, Wbeeza has found the perfect home for his sound. Garnering international acclaim, including support from Stacey Pullen, Michel Cleis, Dixon, Ame, Steve Bug, Jus Ed, Levon Vincent, Delano Smith, Mr Scruff, & many many others..."
Deep, grooving, already with an individual voice, and definitely kicking, this is the House Sound of London.
TORNADO WALLACE (Delusions of Grandeur)
Chicago has house, Detroit techno, Berlin minimal and London a long history of rave culture. But Melbourne’s dance producers are chameleons, mashing up a multitude of Trans-Atlantic sounds with an irreverence peculiar to them. Tornado Wallace subscribes to this very individualism but, even within his hometown, he’s considered an anomaly.
The elusive and enigmatic DJ/producer is discreetly taking on the world with his hybrid of house, techno and disco with the hard-working producer responsible for stand out EPs on labels Delusions Of Grandeur, murmur Instruments Of Rapture under both his Tornado Wallace and Lewie Day guises, all supported by contemporaries such as Andrew Weatherall, Eric Duncan, Tim Sweeney, Matthew Dear and Mr Scruff.
Tornado has also lent his creative spin to other artists with remixes for Cut Copy, Matthew Dear, Recloose and Newbuild amongst others. His mix for the coveted Resident Advisor podcast in July 2011 reaffirmed his status as the leading figure in Melbourne’s resurgence on the world stage. In childhood he learnt to play piano, saxophone, guitar and the drums – and performed in a high school jazz band.
It was only a waiting game for us to bring tornado wallace back and what a time to do it :)
