Nosaj Thing (Alpha Pup) is well known for his dense, off kilter electronic hip hop productions.
His debut long player Drift (Alpha Pup), as well as remixes for Flying Lotus, The XX and, unofficially, Drake, have shown his ability in the studio, and his recent experiments combining live performance with live visuals have demonstrated a depth to his work few artists achieve.
Requiring a cinema size screen and high spec projectors, the AV show is both beautiful and hypnotic, which combined with his unique sound creates a truly immersive experience.
London based producer Becoming Real has carved a niche for himself with a lo-fi hip hop / two step hybrid sound, that never stays one thing long enough to be defined. Taking influences from grime, juke and obscure electronica, there are glitchy melodies, off step beats and a couple of proper bangers amongst the handful of releases so far.
Becoming Real plays live, with support from EE associates Patchwork Pirates.
