LOOKOUT! are proud to present Eric Lau who will be joined by the very talented Rahel who features on his debut LP 'New Territories'.
The production skills of Eric Lau are powered by his love of manipulating sound in a soulful manner. Influenced by artists like Jay Dee, Pete Rock, D'angelo, ?uestlove, James Poyser, Donald Byrd, Roy Ayers, and Shuggie Otis, he seeks to walk in their path of genre-busting, quality soul releases while adding a twist of his own. Using a blend of samples and instrumentation, his music already spans a variety of different genres and his collaborations with an eclectic collective of soul singers, musicians, dj's, rappers and producers with the same mind set will help push the envelope further.
Production credits include Dudley Perkins, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Lupe Fiasco, Guilty Simpson, Wildchild, Tanya Morgan, Hil St Soul, and his family of artists Rahel, Sarina Leah, Annabel, Meshach Brown, Tosin, Tawiah and Jodi Milliner.
Ubiquity released his debut LP 'New Territories' March 18th, 2008.
Rahel - is an energetic singer and songwriter. A dynamic performer who electrifies the stage, whether she is performing alongside a full band, solo guitarist or simply acapella, Rahel draws the crowd's full attention.
I love 'New Territories' and have it on constant rotation and am very excited to have these two very talented artists perform with us.
Another crossing arts event at Favela Chic:
An exhibition of the work by Guillermo Bronton,
curated by Angelica Romanazzi
at Favela Chic from the 25th of June to the 9th of July
Opening:25th of June from 7.30 till late
'Horror Vaqui' is a show of the recent work by Guillermo Bronton (designer/ illustrator).
The exhibition is the result of a study on the consumption and waste. Guillermo is inspired by the personal/intimate image consumption. Thereby the over-use of celebrities' public images in media (press in particular) and its impact on people cultural and social life primarily inspires the artist.
The subject of the art work/ case study on show is the singer Amy Winehouse given that she was the most popular celebrity on the pages of Metro in 2007.
Once narrowed to Metro the research as it was the most read free press, Gugliermo carried out a statistic research on the 2007 issues. Further this he artistically transmitted the outcome of such study by using printing and collage. The media chosen become a playful and wit tools in the hand of the artist to remind the original informative role of the press and to represent the idea of irrational accumulation and waste.In doing so he is aimed to communicate the inner paradox of the excess of physical presence and the emptiness of content
