Downtempo music maestro TEEBS this Friday!

Critically acclaimed producer, TEEBS, who has released two major albums containing lush, sophisticated instrumentals, is making his debut in Hong Kong on Friday, January 20th. The contemporary, almost experimental music borders on Trip Hop, without any of the cliches.

The tools of choice for today’s musicians and composers are often samplers and sequencers found on a laptop computer. With the equipment to make music now more accessible than ever before, artists have become more free to experiment and develop unique sounds. The rigid categories that were once strictly enforced in music, have fallen away, leading to genre defying experimentation. The Brainfeeder label, home to TEEBS, as well as Flying Lotus and Samiyam, is a bastion of this sort of boundary pushing sound.

TEEBS has produced two well received albums, Ardour and Collections, both of which are musically rich, loaded with ambient sounds and containing downtempo, somewhat abstract instrumentals.

For a quick taste, have a listen to the song “Why Like This” off of his debut album Ardour.

On Friday night, expect to hear live remixes of songs from TEEBS previous albums, as well as some new, unreleased tracks from him and his Brainfeeder label mates. Also on the menu are sets from notable Hong Kong based DJs: Yao, K-Melo, Kid Fresh and Enso.
