This Friday, 6 June 2014, Dim sum bar 醉红楼 /Zui Hong Lou will be host to Teebs, a music producer and painter all the way from LA, California. Teebs have recently dropped E S T A R A, his newest album, and is planning to blow your minds away with a one-night only live set. The live set will be accompanied by his collection of paintings and drawings titled Ante Vos (“before you” in Latin).
Born as Mtendere Mandowa in New York to Malawi and Barbados origins, Teebs is a key member of the independent record label Brainfeeder. Teebs has topped the “beat scene” in recent years, and together with local audio-visual collective Syndicate residents Intriguant, Kiat, and Vanessa – known for their electronica performances and visual installations – this is set to be your Friday night treat! This Teebs debut in Singapore will also be supported by Fauxe & Gindara.
Folks from SYNDICATE have described Teebs sonic work as “a billowing brand of beautifully off-kilter, hip-hop coloured beat construction”. His art, like his musical portfolio, is unique and something to revel in. Ante Vos is a display of Teeb’s reinvention and reconstruction of old record sleeves. “The reason why I show, and the reason why I share, is because I started realising that the meditative quality that my work gives me can be spread,” says Teeb.
This event will also feature another round of Beat Invitational showcase to unearth
more musical nuggets and gems. Covering a wide spectrum of sounds, the showcase will present M X N D//K R F T, Ryan Pittam, Gerald Ang, IM and Darren Dubwise.
Syndicate ft. Teebs is happening 6 June, 9pm to 2am, at Zui Hong Lou 8 Ann Siang Hill.
