After giving you guys The Ketchup Post on Tennyson earlier, I can’t help but repost these guys as a live act you must see. With his companion Tess drumming along live as Luke mans various synths, their performance is captivating.
Kite String Tangle
Danny Harley aka The Kite String Tangle is a solo electronic project of the musician which has earned him major attention across Australia. His hit single Given The Chance was a monster hit and you can see him rotate between singing live, keys, samples and drum pads to recreate the song live near pitch-perfect.
The Lawrence brothers of Disclosure took the dance music world by storm with their groovy pop-friendly dance beats and catchy lyrics on songs such as White Noise with AlunaGeorge and Latch with Sam Smith. The duo perform live each manning a myriad of instruments from bass guitar to keys, drum pads, vocals and launchpads.
I’m gonna rollup this combo into one package. Detroit producer and saxophonist GRiZ mans all sorts of live instrumentation during this shows as does electro-funk superstar Gramatik. The two of these guys performing as GRiZMATiK is a sight to behold as you can see from the footage in their track Digital Liberation is Mad Freedom.
Those unfamiliar with the Colorado collective of Big Gigantic have a LOT to catch up on. Serving as my personal introduction into electronic music, their combination of live drumming and saxophone over jazz-influenced glitchy bass wobbles is a true sight to behold live. We got a BONUS VIDEO for you guys below featuring the collective of Big Gigantic and GRiZMATiK performing as BIG GRiZMATiK at Electric Forest which you can just imagine being a part of!
