 Place of Assembly

Two Bright Lakes are very proud to be a part of the community at Schoolhouse Studios, and to have been asked to program the music for their upcoming exhibition Place of Assembly (10th-27th October)

Over the last 2 years, Schoolhouse Studios in Abbotsford has been the workplace of over 75 artists working across a wide range of disciplines. With the demolition of the site planned for the end of 2012, resulting in the displacement of the tenants, founders Elizabeth Barnett & Alice Glenn, in conjunction with Melbourne International Arts Festival, are curating a two-week, site-wide exhibition. To find out more about the artists involved, go to the Place of Assembly website.

Playing at the opening night, Wednesday October 10th, from 8pm, are Fox + Sui, Speed Painters, Client Liason and Two Bright Lakes DJs. It’s free and you won’t regret coming and celebrating one of the most vibrant artistic communities in Melbourne, before it’s gone…
Co-curator Alice Glenn and Blake Byron-Smith from Two Bright Lakes will be on RRR tonight on Set It Out from 5:30pm talking about the exhibition and opening night.

FOX + SUI Summer Storm/Moon Nightclub 7″ out now / Taboo EP out October 12 / Summer Storm video / Melbourne live shows by blak3b5

Following up on the digital release of their oceanic single Summer Storm, Melbourne dream pop duo Fox + Sui release their debut six track EP Taboo through Two Bright Lakes and Remote Control. Featuring the delicate 4-track production work of Melbourne’s Andras Fox and the vocal and lyrical talents of former Sydney resident Sui Zhen, the Taboo EP is a beautifully textured collaboration between two musical minds who first made contact as part of the Red Bull Music Academy in London 2010.

Following support slots with TuneYardsKnxwledgeLost AnimalOscar + Martin and collaborations with James Pants, Fox + Sui have honed a striking and colourful live show that has impressed audiences along the east coast of Australia and will be playing selected shows in Melbourne throughout October and November.

Moving from lounge pop through syncopated beats and library music, the EP is a taste of an exotic concoction brewing, with Fox + Sui at work on a full length album due out in 2013.

The Taboo EP is available on CD and for digital download from October 12th, 2012 and is available from all good record stores and online through Two Bright Lakes.

The limited edition two track 7” vinyl single featuring Summer Storm and Moon Nightclub, is available now through selected record stores in Melbourne and online through Two Bright Lakes.

TWO BRIGHT LAKES turn 5! Birthday party Fri July 20th with KNXWLEDGE (US), OSCAR+MARTIN, FOX&SUI, TBL DJs by blak3b5

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.

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
