Da weather has been totes horrible these past couple of days, so why not escape to a tropical destination in the basement of Vancouver’s hottest club. This is what Jung Coconut is for and the second instalment of FIVESIXTY’s biweekly eklektronik series is next Wednesday, June 13.
With cover only 2 for $5 before 11:00pm, ($8 afterwards), killer tunes and $4 Singles, it’s pretty much like Cancun for spring break.
Featuring the daring acts of:
Motions’ unique sound was first introduced to wider audiences when they opened for Kid Koala in 2010. Since then the trio has filled houses and dance floors bringing the sunshine back to Rain City. The Recipe/Sound : A stimulating liquor distilled from vintage disco and funk tracks, infused with contemporary electronic beats and served with a side of live percussion on crushed ice.
Noble Oak is the experimental pop project of Patrick Fiore, a Vancouver-born multi-instrumentalist and university student. Cited as being “music to fall in love to”, Noble Oak’s hazy yet vivid atmospheres provide a sonic feast for the ears, with precisely crafted, gently-flowing tones. His “We Decide” single was on Hype Machine’s Top 15 most blogged for 5 days shortly after its release, and more recently “Coke Bottle Candy” was selected for the return of Earmilk’s Indie Sabbath playlist. With tempo from multiple influences such as downtempo, R&B, D&B and chillwave music coupled with tangibly luscious arrangements and his own tenor, you can forever expect Noble Oak to tenderly surprise you.
AstroLogical (Nate Drobner) is a multi-instrumentalist hip-hop/trip-hopproducer from Vancouver B.C. His music develops between organic sound textures of jazz, ambient and future beat, passing by the clear influences of seventies prog. His work is instrumental but often uses his own voice in the recording process. Currently releasing music under the Jellyfish Recordings net label, he is also the main beatmaker in the throwback golden age style hip-hop crew Elekwent Folk. Nick Wisdom uses his Fender Rhodes, various synthesizers, turntables, stacks of vinyl, and programmed drums, to create a mellow jazz-based sound. Together they make up Potatohead People.
