What isn't possible, when two multi-instrumental, one-man-bands combine?
Brunswick Space Agency presents, for the first time in New Zealand, Dub Cymatics, fresh out of the Australasian melting pot and built upon utilising the potential of midi-synced live looping.
Two independently touring loop musicians, Erinsphere (NZ) and Sid Berry (NSW) link pedals (think Tash Sultana and Ed Sheeran together) and then mix acoustic and electronic instruments (guitar, clarinet, keys, and trumpet) with drum samples and beat boxing to create everything from dubby reggae soundscapes to thumping live dance tracks.
Inspired to create conscious atmospheres that are enjoyable and uplifting, in both lyrical and musical content, the contrast between Sid’s funky, progressive style and Erin's signature vocal harmonies and leads build dynamic.
Springing from a love of Reggae, Dub and Roots music, through Hip Hop, Dance and into Drum and Bass, their sound is fresh and evolving, inspired by Australasian influences Shapeshifter, Salmonella Dub, Blue King Brown and The Upbeats, to name a few.
With Melbourne based producer and DJ Kayboku (www.kayboku.com), and other feature artists on board for what’s shaping up to be the biggest summer tour of New Zealand in 2018, these guys are already going places.
There’s a brand new EP in the pipeline, and 2018 will also see the duo hit the northern hemisphere.
They're bringing their show to Tairāwhiti Gisborne on Saturday 3 March 2018 at the Dome Cinema, 7pm. Admission is free and it will be everything from soulful, passionate jams featuring solo sets from both artists, to all-night dance parties featuring cutting edge, original productions and visual effects.
Catch ‘em while you can, and let Dub Cymatics shape your soul and energise you with the best vibrations.
