GCR is back for 2017 with the debut Brisbane performance from soulful beat music mastermind, Stro Elliot, live and direct at Rumpus Room on February 24th.

With a strong hip-hop production background stretching back to the late 90s, Colorado-via-LA beatmaker Stro Elliot has been turning heads with his unique blend of sampling, programming and multi-instrumentalism. Having studied guitar, trumpet, piano and drums, his music is just as much indebted to Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock or Stevie Wonder as it is to De La Soul, The Pharcyde or A Tribe Called Quest.

After 3 strong albums with fellow Colorado Springs natives The Procussions (including the underground classic "5 Sparrows for 2 Cents"), Stro has since been sharing the studio and the stage with numerous veterans of the hip-hop scene, including Pete Rock, Jazzy Jeff, Lord Finesse, The Roots, Phonte, J.Period and Elzhi.

All this together with the recent rise of instrumental beat music has inspired the release of Stro's back catalogue together with brand new music, culminating in his latest self-titled LP for Street Corner Music, the label masterminded by long-serving DJ and tastemaker House Shoes (who GCR proudly hosted in 2016).

Fans of jazzy boom-bap and slow-brewed neo-soul, you will not be disappointed. Get on the floor for GCR's first event of 2017.

56 Russell St, West End
