As a new photographer around Hy-Tekk I wasn’t sure what to expect at these shows, but I have yet to leave one anything less than elated. WE HAD A BLAST! Just another baller night at the Granada in great company with great music.
UKF, HY-TEKK & NIGHTLIFE KC
Present BASS CAPADES
Featuring GEMINI and KOAN SOUND
Saturday March 24th 8:00 – 1:30 AM
:::::: GEMINI ::::::
At just 21 years of age, this British-born talent comes with a vision spreading across electronic music, so unique that respected dubstep figure Inspector Dubplate was compelled to sign Gemini’s debut EP ‘Blue’ immediately to launch his label Inspected, to massive acclaim from both the critics and the dancefloor.
Combining his skill as an accomplished piano player with emotional synths, apocalyptic bass drops and futuristic beat patterns that defy all genre expectations, Gemini’s music is intense but always melodic, aggressive yet somehow uplifting.
Treading a delicate path through classical, timeless composition and bass-bin rattling chaos, it is hard to believe that the rest of the scene had failed to take advantage of
the amazing fusion between light and dark that infuses Gemini’s music.
The high production values and originality of the ‘Blue EP’ stunned dancefloors internationally, and Gemini has already been headhunted to remix tracks by Deadmau5, Nicole Scherzinger, French-Soler, Diddy, Willow Smith, Jamiroquai, Kelis and Hadouken.
Gemini’s dedication to production and an unshaking passion to breathe unique sounds and forms into dance music suggest a promising future for this young, immensely talented artist.
This Graduation EP on Inspected Records is definitely firing some of his most inspired, monumental tracks yet; Gemini is on the cusp of supernova success.
::::: KOAN SOUND ::::::
KOAN Sound is an electronic music act consisting of Will Weeks and Jim Bastow, both hailing from Bristol, UK.
The group’s early origins and influences lie mainly in acoustic based music, from bands such as Incubus to RATM, but it wasn’t until 2005 that the duo became immersed in electronic music through acts such as Noisia and The Prodigy. Soon after, the growing Dubstep scene in Bristol began to inform their productions, eventually leading to a string of releases on various labels.
In early 2011 KOAN Sound released their first extended single, the ‘Max Out EP’. The release signaled a turning point in their production, gradually moving away from the 140bpm template and showcasing a wider range of styles than before. It also helped bring more attention to the act, and led to working with a number of artists, including singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran.
Later in the year the group would unveil their biggest release to date, the ‘Funk Blaster EP’ on Skrillex’s OWSLA imprint. The EP achieved the No. 1 spot in the Beatport releases category, and received exclusive featuring from US-based magazine Rolling Stone.
The duo rounded off the year with DJ sets across Europe and North America, and picked up ‘Best Breakthrough Artist’ at the Dubstep Music Awards in November.
