Direct from Europe via Indonesia, experience Filastine’s “Bass Music Sin Fronteras”, cutting-edge audio-visual experience, joined by MC Nova, Javanese singer and creative powerhouse, in a summery feast of communion with global bass frequencies and nomadic auditory delicacies.
Supported by heroes of Sydney's underground creative scene for the last two decades, The Gypsy Dub Sound System, Cinco Cinco Cinco, and Luke Snarl.
Grey Filastine is an audio-visual artist born in Los Angeles, based in Barcelona, and most often nomadic. He composes a dense transnational bass music that collides the lowest frequencies of dubstep with the highest-level beat science, acoustic strings, voices, and lofi street noises. The results are "Awesome and delicate... hybrids so fluent they defy classification." - Pitchfork
Performing up to a hundred concerts per year, Filastine uses percussion to control loops and synchronized video from a heap of electronics wired to an amplified shopping cart. You may have seen him at a sweaty Tokyo nightclub, a football stadium in Casablanca, a respected euro-fest like S nar, in a parking lot in Borneo, or touring the US with the likes of Beats Antique or Bassnectar.
April 2012 Filastine deliverd the loot, his third full length album. LOOT (aka 00T) was made in tandem with a grip of potent videos, and launches another world tour with stops on every continent. The freshly re-tooled live set uses custom software to pull off some deep AV madness, and sees Filastine expanding to tour as a duo, always joined onstage by Indonesian vocalist Nova
Nova Ruth is a vocalist, award winning poet and multimedia artist with an international career. Regularly touring Europe as an MC and is known for spectacular collaborations with the likes of Uncle Ho (The Herd), Flilastine, and Twin Sister.
