Speakeasy Promotions presents.... Taylor McFerrin w/ special guests: Byron The Aquarius & Tyler Ambrosius Waking Astronomer and deejay sets from Divine Interface Saturday February 21st at Aisle 5 $12adv / $14dos / All Ages / 9pm Tickets: https://aisle5.frontgatetickets.com/event/s1micn6z7u7ethnt Taylor McFerrin: Brooklyn-based producer, composer, pianist, DJ and live musician Taylor McFerrin is set to release his first full length LP, Early Riser, in June 2014 on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder record label. Taylor’s musical style is equally influenced by the legends of 60s/70s Soul, the kings of the Modern Beat Generation, Golden Era hip hop, free form jazz and electronic music. By playing all of the instruments on his productions, while also relying heavily on sampling and chopping up his live takes, he has found a sound that seamlessly bridges myriad musical worlds and draws the listener into a constantly shifting audio soundscape. Early Riser features guest performances from Thundercat, Robert Glasper, Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote), Emily King, RYAT, Marcus Gilmore and Taylor’s father & jazz legend Bobby McFerrin, who teams up with Brazilian master Cesar Camargo Mariano for a track. The key to the whole record is the balance though—which McFerrin keeps throughout—between his guest’s individuality and his own vision, between the styles of music he loves, between a feeling of intense, sunlit joy and a deep aching sadness, which, it could be argued, is a definition of soul. Taylor’s ability to create and evolve musically by drawing inspiration from all corners of his life translates into music of exceptional honesty and emotional directness, deep sophistication and effortless style. ______________________________ Byron the Aquarius: One of the most talked-about keyboardist/producer of the future, Byron the Aquarius built his reputation via the Internet and word of mouth. Born Byron' Blaylock in Birmingham, AL he was always around a family that never performed music but kept the rugged sounds in him by introducing him to albums and record players. In 2007, he and French beatmaker Onra released the cult classic Byron & Onra “The Big Payback” under the now defunct Japanese record label Circulations. With Tyler Ambrosius the collective TALKNOISE was created, where he experiments with Hip-Hop, EDM, Jazz and house elements. He is also credited working with Flying Lotus,Kai Alce, Benji B, the late MC Breed, and Denaun Porter. ____________________________- Waking Astronomer Waking Astronomer is the group venture of solo artists Afua Richardson (vocals/flute/effects), Alexa Lima (keys/synthesizers/sounds), and Deku (production/drums/bass). Amongst other influences, the band combines experimental beats with electronic and jazz instrumentation, including piano, flute, keys, synthesizers, and bass.
