MNDSGN + Ivan Ave + Joyce Wrice + Benedek + Silent Jay & Jace XL
We are more than stoked to be helping present this one with Melbourne’s own 'Crown Ruler'. A huge line up of reimagined and amalgamated RnB, boogie and hip hop is coming through Brisbane. The likes of MNDSGN, Ivan Ave, Joyce Wrice, Benedek and Silent Jay & Jace XL are all coming through together this summer for your party pleasure! This night is gong to be one to remember. Artists from around the globe to swoon and move you.
Ivan Ave continued to make waves in 2017. His profile has been slowly building since catching everyones ears with the ‘Low Jams EP’ in 2014. Ave linked up with MNDSGN for the project and the result was smooth, thought provoking butter. The production was unmistakably MNDSGN while Ivan effortlessly flowed through the jazz inspired instrumentals. Reconnecting with MNDSGN for his second solo LP that got put out towards the end of last year, it appears the two have been building their synergy. A more synth driven funk and RnB direction was taken this time around while Ave spits abstract bars covering fickle lovers, conspiracy theories and biohazards. It shows evolution in the artist and is possibly his strongest statement to date.
Joyce Wrice, also no stranger to the production of MNDSGN, has been navigating her own lane through the music world and it’s due time for everyone to notice. A rising voice out of the LA scene, since the release of her debut EP ’Stay Around’ Wrice has a voice that can melt your mood as you get lost in the sultry tones and emotive moments. Her homage to the early RnB predecessors is beautiful to listen to and those pipes captivate with every word.
Benedek is a producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and DJ. Combining house, boogie, hip-hop, jazz fusion and experimental new age compositions, he creates a synched out, blissful experience for your listening journey. After numerous EP’s and singles Benedek released his debut Untitled LP on ‘PPU’. He is steadily touring and had his 2nd LP ‘Bene’s World’, drop mid last year. His performances often have a live element such as a guitar or keyboard as he sends you through a lush combination of funk, house and RnB.
Australian RnB visionaries, Silent Jay & Jace XL have gone from strength to strength since the release of their debut ’Sacrifice’ in 2016. They have a unique strain of future sounds while staying rooted in retro RnB. The smooth vocals and harmonies along with on point production create a vibe you want to be a part of. Silent Jay is one of the busiest guys in the game producing and performing with for the likes of 'Sampa the Great' and 'Alejandro Jay Abapo' while working on a sophomore release with Jace XL. Jace has also been working with and featuring on tracks with fellow rising star, Billy Davis. Together the duo also released a christmas album, for a festive listen, to round out 2017.
