EVENT- NEO SOUL: Eric Lau @ The Burdiken 26th May 2012!


ERIC LAU“..There’s beauty everywhere, from the smallest things, to the largest things in the universe. I feel, when I make music, it just comes through me. I’m just trying to be a part of everything else.” ERIC LAU ON MAKING MUSIC (Excerpt taken from The making of QUADRIVIUM2011)

RETURNING to Sydney for one night only is one of hip hop’s fastest rising and critically acclaimed producers – ERIC LAU (UK)!

Supporting DJ’s on the night will showcase a talented pool of music aficionados who have worked tirelessly over the years by their own merits, developing and cultivating Sydney’s niche music community with a strong thread of music parties and events for us to enjoy.

The night will feature DJ’s FRENZIE, HUWSTON, JC (FUNKDAFIED) and CMAN for a night of quality music one searches the depths of dusty basements, locked in vaults that are only stumbled upon through endless digging in crates.

Who is ERIC LAU?

London beat-maker ERIC LAU needs no introduction amongst producers worldwide. With a number of international artists under his belt on collaborative projects from Georgia Anne Muldrow, Guilty Simpson, Lupe Fiasco, Oddisee, Tanya Morgan, Muhsinah, Chris “Daddy” Dave, Dudley Perkins and a host of others, it’s not that often relatively unknown beat producers get to collaborate with a stunning array of artists early on in their careers.

Furthermore to his production work, Eric Lau is also a well sought after DJ contributing mixtapes on various distinguished music platforms which include legendary Gilles Peterson WorldWide, Red Bull Music Academy, BTS Radio, and Put Me On It to name a few. His DJ career has provided him the opportunity to support high profile artists such as Erykah Badu, Robert Glasper, and Questlove – all within a few short years.

Released through UBIQUITY RECORDS in 2008, Eric Lau’s debut album “New Territories” generated worldwide recognition landing him a spot in Gilles Peterson’s Top Albums of 2008 and additional support from music lovers, grounding his position in the music industry as a talented producer. With a string of instrumental albums that followed suit released through KILAWATT MUSIC, 2012 will see Eric Lau release a full length album entitled ‘One of Many’ amongst a host of other collaborative and instrumental production albums in the works.

RETURN OF THE REAL AND SOULPOWER presents Isaac Aesili featuring Rachel Fraser and They Ray Mann Three plus DJ’s @ TONE, 12th of NOVEMBER!


Musicians don’t retire, they stop when there’s no music left in them… “Louis Armstrong”
Grindin’ and Funkdafied  have teamed up to present ‘Return of the Real’ featuring New Zealand’s Isaac Aesili and Rachel Fraser with our very own soul connoisseurs The Ray Mann Three, plus special guests. We will be creating the ultimate soul experience at Tone on the 12th of November!


ISAAC AESILI WITH RACHAEL FRASER (NZ)
A consummate multi instrumentalist and beatmaker, Isaac Aesili’s debut album ‘Eye See’ is a representation of the diverse world we live in. Rich textures of reggae, dub, electronica and soft soulful r&b are woven intricately to create a landscape of futuristic escapism. It’s like astral traveling, yet you can still feel the dirt in between your toes.

Isaac Aesili and Rachel Fraser @ TONE

Described as one of the most humblest beings, Isaac’s album collaboration consists of vocals from Mara TK from Electric Wire Hustle, Aaradhna, Deva Mahal, Rosita Vai, and Rachael Fraser who will be accompanying him to Australia.

Described by Benji B as  “One of the most exciting soul talents to emerge from the South Pacific!” (Benji B, Deviation; BBC1 Xtra), Isaac is will be armed on stage with an MPC and trumpet, plus amazing soul singer Rachael Fraser, transforming you into another world.

RAY MANN THREE (SYD)
Hailing from Sydney, our soul connoisseurs are knowledgeable in technique and form, raw, funky, cheeky and talented. With a strong loyal following built over years of local performances at venues around town, Ray Mann Three have taken their distinctive sound across local borders touring all over Australia and Japan whilst sitting down! Yup, the guys sit on their comfy seats, perform their instruments and entice you to join a night of playful intimacy.

THE RAY MANN THREE

The Ray Mann Three’s CV is quite impressive having supported for Tori Amos, AL Green, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Jamie Lidell, Roy Ayers, Kate Miller Heidke, The Bamboo’s, Ash Grundwall and Holy Throsby.

In May 2008, Ray Mann Three released their anticipated album of the same title boosting their national following. Sydney morning Herald described their sound as a fusion of “…D’angelo’s sex appeal with the grit of Tom Waits.”

It’s music that you loose yourself in….

DJ’s on the night are Stephan Ferris, Huwston, JC Funkdafied and Thomas Crown!
