Join us for Grow Your Own in Hackney Wick, where we join forces with local musicians and artists to celebrate the local talent and this Friday 31 March, we welcome headline duo Fox Hotel with support from Seckar and a DJ set by WARSNARE.
A vocal-driven livetronica duo featuring Oli Dacombe (drummer, electronics player/developer) and Mariya Brachkova (vocals/synths).
They craft their own live triggers, controllers and software in their music production, and for live performances. Their first single "E.D.E" was released in summer 2015 and included in Tom Robinson's BBC 6 Mixtape soon after. The duo is currently at work on their debut EP, tentatively scheduled for release in Spring 2017. Fox Hotel met in 2014 while playing for "Studio45" artists, working with producers P*Nut and Matty Benbrook (Amy Winehouse, Faithless, Paolo Nutini, Dido).
Seckar is the current project of Yorkshire-born London-based Producer, Engineer and Multi-Instrumentalist, Ray Tovey. Under previous guises Tovey has performed with/supported/engineered/remixed artists such as Clark, Plaid (Warp Records), The Haxan Cloak (Tri Angle Records), Nao (Little Tokyo Recordings, Disclosure, Mura Masa), Wild Palms (One Little Indian) and LUH.
Seckar is an instrumental electronic post-pop project influenced by the likes of Tycho, Postal Service, Boards of Canada, Warp Records, Ghostly International et al. Live, the Seckar show expands to feature live drums, keys, and guitars/bass/electronics.
Electronic producer Warsnare (Dan Potter) has got us all curious about his upcoming album - featuring artists like Kate Tempest, live recorded strings, traditional Brazilian rhythms - this beautifully produced record is certainly one to look forward to.
