EVENT: Jess Harlen “Park Yard Slang” Album Launch @ Notes Live (thurs may 17)

Melbourne-based soul artist Jess Harlen debuts the breakthrough single from her anticipated full length album Neon Heartache, the initial release from the freshly launched Plethora Records. Titled “Watch The Water”, the song is the first sample of music from the heralded musical collaboration between Harlen (named ‘Best Unsigned Artist‘ at the 2007 Urban Music Awards) and 2008 ARIA Nominee and 2009 Mercury Prize Winner (for his work with Speech Debelle) Plutonic Lab.

“Watch The Water” combines the grace of acoustic melodies with solid rhythms and soulful introspection- a small teaser into Neon Heartache’s depth and poise. Included with the lead single is the album track “Diamond”, a gritty bass-driven blues number backed by midnight reflection and heartbeat tempos- a beautiful contrast to “Watch The Water.”

Produced by Plutonic Lab, Neon Heartache showcases the incredible musical talent Harlen has been harnessing for years – touring the globe with roots giants Blue King Brown as well as guesting on Muph & Plutonic‘s acclaimed 2008 album, …And Then Tomorrow Came.

Jess Harlen “Park Yard Slang” Album Launch @ Notes Live, Newtown

This Thursday, 17 May 2012. Doors open 7pm

With Supports by LISSA and Anthony Ousback

Red Bull Beat Suite is set to smash every conceived musical boundary – creating an entirely original, never-before-heard musical exploration, mixing together the nation’s best beat makers, musicians from the Australian Youth Orchestra as well as special guest vocalists including US soul singer, Aloe Blacc who will all feature on the same stage for two shows only on Saturday 12th May, at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

This very special event will be an orchestral exploration of the last 20 years of electronic and beat music combining two diverse musical worlds, setting a musical precedent by bringing the contemporary and classical worlds together on the one stage for the very first time in Australia.

Fans can expect to hear Australia’s best beat makers including two turntablists, a 15 piece orchestra, bass player, percussionist plus the hottest guest vocalists to produce a show like never before. The show will feature the talent of Ladi6, DJ Perplex, Amin Payne, Scratch 22 and Galapagoose. This innovative musical mash up will be cast under the intrepid direction of Australia’s own maestro and composer, Tamil Rogeon, who is charged with conducting a bunch of people who quite frankly, don’t belong in the same room – let alone the same stage! Red Bull Beat Suite is the creation of curator and creative director of the event, Kano Hollamby.

Red Bull Beat Suite is a rare opportunity to push the envelope and drive forth innovation by fusing together cultures that would normally play in very different playgrounds. The event will provide opportunities for the young guns of classical music to work with those from a hip hop and electronic music background – an unexpected collaboration with mind-blowing results.

Utilising their own award winning 3d projection mapping technologies, Melbourne’s own and world renown ENESS studios will create a never before seen interactive visual display to accompany this cutting edge performance.

Red Bull Beat Suite will debut at the stunning and musically paramount Melbourne Recital Centre, which is excited to be part of this exciting fusion – be the first to witness this cutting edge musical experiment.

Red Bull Beat Suite is a drawing together of cultures which is as ambitious as it is thrilling. Take the nation’s best beat makers, put them on stage with the Australian Youth Orchestra, throw in US soul singer and hip hop luminary Aloe Blacc plus special guest singers and musicians, and cast them under the intrepid direction of The Raah Project’s Tamil Rogeon.

Red Bull Beat Suite is homage to the last 20 years of urban beats and electronic music genres, told by Australia’s and the world’s most cutting edge musicians, producers and vocalists through a ‘mix tape’ of orchestra, turntables and live beats.

Adding to the experience, Melbourne’s own and world renown ENESS will create a never before seen interactive visual display, utilising their own award winning 3D projection mapping technologies.
