#THEHANGS **LIVE ORIGINAL MUSIC** [THURSDAY – 19.01.2017]
Behind The Front x PLAY BAR SYD present “#THEHANGS”
We showcase who we’re vibing in whatever artistic discipline/format, striving for artistic freedom and expression. One thing is for sure, they must inspire and make us feel something.
“The Hangs..” is about getting together to head nod with strangers and finding that common love for a sound that rarely gets played in club nights.
As long as they inspire and make us feel things, we’re going to share.
#THEHANGS JAN 2017 feat.
GC O’CONNOR *LIVE*
TIM FOOLEY *LIVE*
GC O’CONNOR **LIVE** //
Raised on a fusion of blues, soul, jazz, RnB, folk and everything in between, G. C. O’Connor is a Sydney based urban-soul-jazz guitarist and songstress delivering an original sound and original music.
Music to make you feel and slow jam to.
TRIM FOLEY **LIVE** //
Trim Foley is a new solo, live experimental electronic musician. He has been a professional drummer / percussionist and sound designer for the last 15 years based primarily in Byron Bay and Sydney, Australia.
Having played with countless bands in the past, trim recently decided to expand his musical ideas into something beyond the traditional drum kit format. He began by record experimental samples and rhythms in the leftover studio time after band sessions. In his other life as a sound designer he was collecting dusty, off-cut analog beats and discarded atmos sounds from his city wanderings. Placed together, Trim Foley is the result of a what a drummer wanted to hear when there is no more band, the sound behind the song; the product of ears that have been behind a drum kit for 15 years meditating on noise.
Using live drumming with samplers, triggering and looping, he has created a truly unique live arrangement style on stage using only sounds that he’s recorded and produced himself. Trim has just returned from a very successful run of shows over 2 months in Berlin and Tokyo, and is revved to play again in his home turf once again.
Trim Foley style is best described as abstract instrumental hip hop, analog lo fi textures, lush atmospherics and live bent beats.
DIOLA (Behind The Front) //
Krystel Diola is at the fore front when it comes to her selections.
There’s always QUALITY. SUBSTANCE. DEPTH, and MUSICALITY.
If the TV Show WEEDS was adapted into a musically-orientated show called BEATS, she would be Nancy Botwin.
Catch Diola on FBI radio Every Wednesday 6-8pm Sunsets with Mike Who (www.fbiradio.com)
BENNY HINN (Play Bar Syd) //
Benny Hinn (Daniel Robertson) began spinnin’ vinyl back in 01′ playing a range of phat funky house and some chunky big assed broken beats for the masses… Although now only 34, the Hinns has played at some of the finer establishments, parties and festivals around Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Spain, Wollongong and the South coast, gaining a rep az a bit of a party starter and one with some def skillz, finesse and sheer artistry on a pair of 1200s.
The Hinn has also toured with the MOS Label for an Annual release and has supported many artists such as, The Stanton Warriors, Freq Nasty, Krafty Kuts, A.Skillz, Jay Jay, Sneaky Sound System, The Resin Dogs, Katalyst, Sarah Love, Shortee Blitz, Frenzie, Total Eclipse, Mr. Doris, Cool Hand Luke, Normski, DJ Katch, DJ A.$.K, DJ KC, Edseven, Inkswel, Omegaman, Busta, Koolism, [love] Tattoo, Mark Dynamix, Ajax [RIP], Bang Gang, Goodwill, Alex Taylor, Funktrust, Purple Sneaker DJs + many many more…
Benny has also been dipping into a little production here and there with a few little mashes and beats all up on his soundcloud & mixcloud page & is host of the Radio Program Sydney Underground on Bondi Beach Radio.
His latest venture has been building and establishing PLAY BAR SYDNEY. After drawing inspiration from his last stint in Melbourne and meeting his partner & co-owner Sarah, the two worked hard to build what they hope to be for many years to come, an institution that brings decent music into Surry Hills Sydney. He has programmed every bit of music that has come through the venue and supported a huge range of hiphop, breakbeat DJs and just awesome beat-makers and producers both local and abroad…
