LOW KEY AUSTIN //
The sydney Producer, sound engineer and member of the throwaways collective, Low Key Austin combines elements of live instrumentation, experimental FM synthesis and cinematic atmosphere to create music with a stunning range of tone and feel. Always hard edged, never a dull moment, Low key Austin finally takes his production from out of the bedroom and infront of an audience for his first official live show, and he couldn’t be in better company.
JAYO (YUM YUM) //
Originally from the far south coast of NSW, Jayo has no formal musical training with the exception of Blues guitar as a young kid after which he immersed himself in hip hop, funk, soul and reggae.
In his teens, he moved to Canberra and soon started DJing and putting on parties throughout the city. Some years after becoming a father to twins, music continued to call on him putting together a popular monthly reggae/dub party which evolved into a 12 piece hip hop, funk and dub band called ‘The Rock Steady’.
The Rock Steady gave Jayo the opportunity to focus on production and live performances throughout the Canberra festival circuit. With a production foundation influenced by the ideas and techniques of the great Dub engineers and motivated by Hip Hop’s innovation, raw skills and style, he treats sampling as a chance to create something new whilst paying homage to the past.
Several extended stays abroad in the USA, UK, Europe and the South & West Pacific have greatly inspired and improved his musical ideas, knowledge and collection.
As both a DJ and producer, Jayo has had the opportunity to support respected artists such as Katalyst, Hau, Hermitude, Oddisee, Houseshoes, Blu (Blue & Exile), Sidestepper (Colombia), The Red Eyes, Kingfisha, Lotek, D’opus & Roshambo, Spit Syndicate and Salmonella Dub amongst others.
