Fri 5 April / Mono / 10:00pm
A power duo from the south coast of Finland, Jarse has been preparing for a psychedelic revolution since 2009, drawing inspiration from the psychedelic music from all decades, from dark prehistorical age to the distant future. In 2011 first official Jarse release, 7″ single Alas (Fonal Records) saw daylight. It holds a record of being one of the fastest productions in the history of Fonal records, process from composing to the test pressings took less than two weeks. As the single was cut live at the tiny bedroom in eastern Helsinki with 13 session musicians, it also holds the record of being physically the tightest session in history of audio recording.
The experimental hip-hop duo comprises of drummer Audrey and rapper Louie. They have been building a solid reputation for their illustrious live shows, inking a new page in an exciting new chapter for Scottish music. With a growing fan base the dynamic duo have drawn comparisons from music journalists as a being like a hybrid of The White Stripes and The Roots “coming down the M8 motorway”. They approach song writing in quite a unique way. Audrey has explained before that she feels all good songs should be able to stand alone with acoustic guitar and vocal. There is no hiding place at acoustic shows. Hector feel that way about hiphop. A good hip-hop song should be able to grab the attention of an audience through drums and lyricism.
