Two Bright Lakes is 5 years old and excited to welcome Philly beatmaker KNXWLEDGE to Australia for very first time. The highly regarded remixer and producer follows on the back of worldwide acclaim and work for some of the biggest names in the business. With support from Two Bright Lakes family Oscar + Martin and Fox & Sui, come and join us as we boogie on our Birthday with TBL DJ’s before between and after it’s all done.
If you don’t know KNXWLEDGE, he performs live as an undefinable and unexplainable solo unit, channelling the vibes (and facing comparisons) of J DIlla, Madlib, Flying Lotus and associates, his work is thematic and naturally organic.
Releasing on LA’s acclaimed All City, Tres Records, Klipmode and Hit+Run, his name caught the eye of London’s Boiler Room who invited him to perform on their legendary podcast series. With support from the likes of Benji B, Mary Anne Hobbs, RinseFM, Future Classic, Illumsphere, and Mike Slott, he is a name on the rise with a sound for the stars.
Available now at http://www.moshtix.com.au/event.aspx?id=58143 and on the door if there are any left.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us get to this point, we could not have done it without our friends, mentors and fellow artists. And most of all thank you to everyone who listened and came to events, there is much more to come, happy listening…
love Two Bright Lakes
