Arkham is getting another taste of the infamous LA beat scene this weekend with a Brainfeeder showcase featuring Teebs and Mono/Poly. Brainfeeder is Flying Lotus’ experimental record label known for its deep, cerebral instrumental hip-hop and its kaleidoscopic sonics. We’ve reeled in some Brainfeeder talent pretty recently with DAEDALUS and TOKIMONSTA, who you may remember dropped dense, textured beats that rattled both mind and body. Teebs and Mono/Poly will be coming out with some similarly layered, down-tempo sounds equally arresting and revelatory.
Mono/Poly has an EP release on Brainfeeder called Manifestations from 2011, while Teebs has two highly emotive albums, Ardour and E S T A R A and one compilation release called Compilations 01 on Brainfeeder. Both artists string together warm and syrupy, down-tempo astral-hop that generates the dark bliss of some shroomed out hip-hop or some surreal sylvan trip. Basically, their music sounds just like dreams.
Brainfeeder is currently pushing electronic music forward into spaces wholly uninhabited. Naturally, Teebs and Mono/Poly will be delivering a show probably unlike any you’ve seen before. Burrow in this weekend and let’s see where they take us.
Line-Up: Teebs + Mono/Poly + ADO8 + Downstate
Date: Saturday, May 24th
Address: 1 South Wulumuqi Lu
