Wednesday 14TH November – Oddisee + Good Compny Band LIVE in Singapore
Coming up through Washington DC, Oddisee’s career is one that is certified gold. Both an MC and producer, he came up learning the trade in a neighbour’s basement studio – who so happened to be a member of Parliament Funk. It began the independent musician’s career that consists of more than a dozen releases, and features in Time Magazine to the Rolling Stone.
He has produced for Little Brother and De La Soul as much as he has rapped with The Roots and his own live band Good Compny – which delivered a tour of all 110 shows in 2017, back off of his album ‘Iceberg’ from that year. Keeping it true to the craft, he is one who champions true independence for his artistic vision, and he is back in Singapore since his last show in 2015 at the old Kilo Lounge on Kallang River, accompanied with his live band.
Thursday 15TH November – The Council x DTW presents Max Graef (M$R / Apron)
Nobody does Jazzy, Hip Hop inspired House music with quality any better than Max Graef. Label owner of M$R, the producer is based in Berlin and collaborates with peers like Glenn Astro pushing their unique take of House music that is influenced by other genres of music.
Making sample based four-to-the-floor beats with a Hip Hop aesthetic and samples from Jazz, Soul and Funk, this sound is suited for headphones as much as it is for day time outdoor festivals as well as intimate club, like Headquearters by The Council. Daryl C from Darker Than Wax supports the night.
Saturday 17TH November – Look Look See Cee (Monkeytown Records) @ White Label Records
CEE is a Jungle dweller, producer, DJ and all around maverick. Over the years, spotted sharing stages with Missy Elliot, Modeselektor, Jimmy Edgar, Dorian Concept, Tokimonsta… If you’re about to see him play live or DJ, expect something soulful, deep, layered, bass heavy, dub in ected, eclectic – expect to be massaged by warm low ends, startled, and surprised.
Saturday 17TH November – TUFF CLUB x Good Times presents TUFF TIMES
