To mark the release of their first album Daredevilry, made up of highlights from music production challenges that have been successfully tackled between 2016 and 2018, international collective The Fearless Few will be hosting a launch party consisting of live performances and DJ sets by a selection of its members.
Whilst stylistically diverse, The Fearless Few are tied together by a shared ambition to better themselves as producers through the relentless tackling of creatively expansive, time-restricted production challenges.
Over the years, members of the collective have remixed Iraqi oud music, built tracks using nothing but found sound from our kitchens, composed music for a children’s book promo, scored a scene from a horror script, followed Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies, hosted a takeover on Netil Radio, created radio show jingles, entered and won remix competitions and so much more.
Some of the live sets on the night are bound to feature tracks produced in conjunction with some of these challenges, so expect an eclectic mix of genres, sensibilities and instrumentation.
'Mesmerising folktronica'. The Woods is the music of Scottish producer, vocalist & multi-instrumentalist Johnny McFadzean. Featured on BBC Introducing & WorldwideFM, his haunting vocals intertwine with looped beats & intricate harmonies in 'very excellent James Blake-meets-Moon Safari vibes'.
KonDread is a DJ and beat maker. As vinyl selector his collection oscillates around UK post-dubstep and hybrid bass electronic music. He produces music under different aliases, experimenting with atmospheric soundscapes and broken beats.
Diffuze, the Fearless Few collective’s resident tech maven and an associate of the much-revered CDR night, will bring us a deep, atmospheric and hazy live set rooted in his passion for ambient, dub techno and IDM.
MSOM is the founder of the Fearless Few, whose Scandinavian roots account for his polished and unapologetically poppy sound, broadly inspired by late 90s and early 00s electronica – particularly Warp – as well as minimal associated with earlier releases on Kompakt.
Two Silhouettes operates as a solo act, duo, or band. Producer Sam Holloway's music fuses the darkness of the Bristol Sound with the propulsive tempos of the Plastic People scene, mixing outsider house, alternative rock, and alt-R&B. A founding member of the Fearless Few, Sam Holloway has also presented on Radio Nope and Netil Radio, and composes for film and video.
CDR co-organiser and DJ - Oliver Si formed his DJ career in what became the hugely popular Dubstep Scene circa 2007. Oliver Si has played around the world and supported a variety of Acts such as Rusko, Noisia, Sticky, Alexander Nut, and Mistabishi, amongst many others. With around 12 years experience drifting between ambient soundscapes, drum & bass and many variants in between, he can provide interesting grooves, melancholy and bass.
Expect a free form exploration of rhythm with a psychedelic touch. Influenced by DJs and artists such as Theo Parrish, Four Tet and Floating Points, Zar is creating a musical fusion across electronic and Indian classical genres alike, designed to free yourselves of day to day stresses and encouraging you to embrace the primal beat in all of you. Zar is a presenter for London Fields Radio, and recently remixed of T?l’s debut single “What You Are”.
