73 til’ Infinity feat.INKSWEL[FRIDAY – 04.07.2014]
The exceptional crew behind lioness presents the next edition of 73 til’ Infinity featuring 3 of the best in the game…
The drum machine obsessive. Ex bboy turned worldwide rumpshaker. Inkswel holds the torch for those who cannot be pigeon holed.
Australian native, worldwide resident. Residing in a studio somewhere between Adelaide, Amsterdam. Melbourne and London, his sound traverses vibrations. Crafting creations early on for Rush Hour sub label Boogie Bash (founded by dutch don KC THE FUNKAHOLIC). Remixing the likes of Darwins Theory (Lotus Land) , Rondenion (Japan) and Maseratay (Brussels). Increasing the underground energy with his GINSENG ROOT ep on Dopeness Galore, which featured collaborative medicine from Tom Trago & Benny Badge. His most refined and noteable release the recent cult 10″ vinyl on cult UK label FIRECRACKER recordings Unthank series, featuring Chico Mann and Funkineven.
In 2013 he also launched his new label HOT SHOT sounds, the debut featuring a new track with Reggie B and a b side jam from his partner in crime FREEKWENCY. Upcoming movements from Inkswel in 2013 include his AUSTRALABORIALIS ep on FACES & MCDE, a raw collection of unreleased jams created between 2001 and the present, the upcoming MERWYN & Inkswel EP (Virgo Four) with remixes from Linkwood and GB and ep on rising Burek label with remixes by UK pioneer IG Culture, German deep house supremo Iron Curtis and the one and only DJ Nature.
The sound holds no boundary.
EDSEVEN (Lioness Presents) //
Armed with a unique ear, deep collection and a skill for combining diverse sounds, Sydney’s edseven has built a solid reputation as a dj over the last decade as well as a producer/remixer and more recently as a promoter.
A collector of many styles, a typical Edseven dj set could include anything from Detroit Hip Hop to Nigerian Funk, Broken beat to Chicago House, Classic Soul to Future Beat and beyond.
This musical range and the technical ability to hold it all together has seen edseven called upon to support international acts including Funkineven, IG Culture, Recloose, Grooveman Spot, Nickodemus, Suff Daddy, Linkwood, Samiyam, EL-P, Dj Food, Frank Booker, Mark de Clive Lowe, Raf Daddy, Peanut Butter Wolf, Pablo Valentino, Mark Pritchard, Jose James, Waajeed, James Pants, Domu, Dj Spooky etc..

Edseven’s production work draws upon the varied influences with releases including the dusty Off Kilter Hip Hop of his first two EPs on Straightup Recordings to his future focused ‘Pigeon Clap’ released via Frequency Lab on their Headroom compilation. Remix work for artists including Cookin’ on 3 Burners, Dj Regal, Onur Engin and Rephrase..
In 2012 with the help of Melbourne stalwart Inkswel, edseven started a series of warehouse parties under the name “Lioness Presents’. The aim of this venture was to showcase top shelf international producers/djs in intimate Sydney warehouse spots. Delivering the initial goal in spades Lioness brought out West London artist Funkineven (Eglo Records), prolific master musician/producer Mark de Clive Lowe (Tru Thoughts), French House/Beats don Pablo Valentino (MCDE/Faces Records), cult label Firecracker’s Linkwood, Steve Spacek (Africa Hitech /WARP) and Recloose (Planet E).. Lioness Presents has gone from strength to strength with good friends Henry Compton and Fred Tectonic joining the crew soon after it’s inception.
Late 2012 also saw edseven start a weekly Hip Hop, Funk, Beats, Soul and Afrobeat night ’73 ’til Infinity’ in his home suburb of Newtown co presented by Sydney institution Soul of Sydney.. this monthly event has evolved to now call Surry Hills’ Play Bar home.
