A Closer Look at SnowGlobe 2012
The Brooklyn based electronic duo Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee, aka Break Science, are seasoned producers and touring veterans, having produced and performed with everyone from The Fugees, Wu Tang Clan, and Talib Kweli, to reggae Lee Scratch Perry and Miles Davis collaborator, John Scofield.
Recently joining forces with a movement of new electronic artists on the Pretty Lights Music label, this potent duo will continue to push the boundaries of modern music.
The duo kicked off 2012 with the release of their second EP entitled Monolith Code (Pretty Lights Music). “Monolith Code is the innate message we have to decipher to get to the next step in our evolution” says Lee. “The monolith represents a transition into a higher level of consciousness.” You can download Monolith Code for free HERE!
London-born duo, Lee Rous and Andy Gardner, are early pioneers of the breakbeat genre in electronic music. Throughout the 2000s, they released a string of singles and remixes of well-known dance music names such as Fatboy Slim, Stanton Warriors, Orbital and Deadmau5.
Their DJ sets and productions began changing accordingly, and the four-deck live DJ show they developed allowed them to pull off more creative mixes in clubs and at festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury and Skolbeats.
Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Jean-Philip Grobler aka St. Lucia grew up performing with the Drakensberg Boys Choir School. When the choir wasn’t traveling – they toured Japan, Australia, Europe and more – they stayed in an enclave tucked in the South African mountains, learning everything from Bach to minimalist opera.
After he felt he had his fill of classical, Grobler left South Africa to study pop music in England. His journey ended in New York, where he started working on the tracks that would ultimately turn into his self titled debut release on Neon Gold.
The atmospheric quality of St. Lucia’s electronic pop is powerful, with the musician’s global travels and history of secret hideaways effortlessly passed onto the audience through his dreamy, shimmering synths.
In live form, the group is comprised of Patricia Beranek, Nick Brown, Ross Clark and Nick Paul.
Gentlemen Hall is six individuals out to deliver pop songs wrapped in unique instrumentation. From flutes to vintage synthesizers, GH is not a typical lineup.
Based out of Boston, the band was originally a group of friends with no intentions of making music together. Despite coming from completely different musical backgrounds the sextet was drawn to the the sounds of common artists and found themselves incorporating the implications of the pulsing synth sounds of Depeche Mode, the hallucinatory topics and arrangements of the Flaming Lips, and eclecticism and unique vocal approach of David Bowie.
