Description

Brush off the doof dust and polish your dancing shoes, Cool Room’s back on the 4th of May! We’ve missed your shining faces and thought we’d take the time to remind you just how incredible our local talents are. Episode 3 will bring you the sounds of Rings Around Saturn, DJ Lady Erica, and Cool Room’s very own Hymns. Three incredible, forward-thinking and diverse artists to welcome you back into the Cool Room fold with exciting, warm and grippingly unique performances to get your body and mind moving.


HYMNS (Cool Room, Salt Mines)

As Cool Room co-founder, booker, and key tastemaker, the party would never have existed as it does without Hymns’ tireless work and brilliant creative direction. Jacob’s formative influences came in his teens, trading weird music CDs – Autechre, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Drexciya – with his friends on the bus home after school. He’s still heavily involved with, supporting, and influenced by his peers, with track releases on local outfits Momentary Records and LKR Records, and his own EP on Melbourne’s Salt Mines label. The crowning jewel of his catalogue, Waves of Nothing is four tracks of sublime, IDM-tinged electro. It’s a beautiful coalescence of Jacob’s influences and feels distinctly personal to him, forward-thinking and refined, while full of melancholy and powerful, emotive moments.


Since its release, Jacob has broken out globally. His tracks have been played in clubs around the world by artists including Johanna Knuttson, Or:la, DJ Seinfeld, Cottam, Kate Miller, and Mama Snake. His DJing has been carrying him across the globe, taking his signature electro-heavy, fast, dancefloor friendly style to local big shows at Strawberry Fields, and across Europe, alongside his close pals Route 8 and Asquith of Lobster Theremin fame. He’s got major releases upcoming on big international labels, and publications are singing his praises. XLR8R recently featured him in both their Best of 2017 Artists and Tracks lists. His momentum is surging and 2018 only has bigger things in store for him yet. It’s long overdue that we present Hymns for a special three-hour headline set.


DJ LADY ERICA

https://soundcloud.com/hymnshymns

DJ Lady Erica was spinning hot wax while most of us were still learning to tie our shoelaces. In ‘91 she was playing UK Pirate Radio. In ‘95 she moved down under to be of the first DJs playing Jungle in Western Australia. From ‘99 she ran a weekly Saturday night slot on RRR, bringing her influences from pirate radio - minimal announcing, live mixing (on the studio mixer mind you), shout outs to listeners - a stark contrast to the rest of Aussie radio where no dance music got played at night! Lady Erica was instrumental in bringing a bevy of UK sounds - Garage, Grime, Dubstep, and Jungle - into the ears of Australian listeners. Her career has seen her supporting some of the biggest names from her home turf, including MJ Cole and recently DJ EZ. The queen of “driving basslines to move your waistline”, Lady Erica’s selections are always full of soul, funk, and guaranteed to get the floor moving. We’re very excited to welcome Australia’s First Lady of UK Garage for her first set at Cool Room!



RINGS AROUND SATURN Live (Unthank, Analogue Attic)

https://soundcloud.com/rdjm0

The artist formerly known as Dan White and part-time dub scholar of Turner Street Sound returns to Cool Room to ease you into the night with live, immersive, ambient electronix. An incredibly prolific producer heavily influenced by UK sounds and riddims, Rory takes listeners on interstellar, dub-inflected journeys with his array of machines. It’ll be a rare, deep listening opening special from one of Australia’s finest talents, fresh off a sizzling peak-time live set at Meredith Music Festival and before he jets off to Tassie for a feature appearance at Dark Mofo supporting his idols, Autechre. Come down early and start your night right.
