Having previously welcomed musicians such as Space Dimension Controller, Fort Romeau or Andy Hart, Luvthang continue the cruise with their first event of 2017 which features lo-fi sound shapers Mall Grab & TRP.
A relative new comer onto the scene, 23-year-old Mall Grab is breaking all kinds of moulds on his swift rise to recognition. His sound has been described as mildly celestial “hella stoned” introspections that pay homage to old Three 6 Mafia mixtapes as much as more recent astral experiences in house and techno. Inverted Audio says that Mall Grab has steadily grown into a surefire purveyor of leg-stretching, dusty house material. In the short amount of time he’s come into the spotlight, he’s become one of the most talked about artists in the scene, seamlessly blending old school gems with his own lo-fi productions in his constantly surprising sets. Most known as a proponent of the hazy house aesthetic, Australian-rooted Jordan already boasts a hefty catalogue with releases on Hot Haus Recs, Church, 1080p as well as his own vinyl-only label Steel City Dance Discs as well as a weekly slot on Rinse FM.
His upcoming Pool Party Music EP is already making waves, ringing in anthemic horns from the get go, while label head Haus tells us to expect “low-slung crunk-houz” on ‘B.F.O.D.A.A.S.’. The EP finale comes in the form of dreamy melodies and of ‘Catching Feelings’, which also includes a little treat for Outkast fans.
Second guest of the night is another emerging artist, the mysterious but equally exciting TRP. Following acclaimed releases on prominent labels Lobster Theremin, Shall Not Fade, as well as DJ Haus’ prolific Unknown To The Unknown, TRP generated quite the buzz within the underground community, becoming one of the most creative artists to watch these days. With stripped down, minimalist dubbed out atmospherics and an intrinsically raw sound design, TRP’s productions douse any dancefloor in late-night murky feels while keeping feet moving.
