It is a great pleasure to announce: for the first time, Maribou State will perform in Hungary, at the Amper Klub! In the name of smart electronica, we have invited the britis duo, who got famous by their uplifting and soulwarming house tracks during the past two years. And with them, LavaLava will come from Budapest and Boci from Pécs.
From the newest wave of british producers Maribou State stands out. They are gathering influences from soul, future garage, downtempo and adding vocal snippets, to make their music. Usually they are mentioned besides Disclosure and Bondax, but regarding the musical trends, they are on a different path. They don’t want to be on the top of the charts, instead they want to focus on their own sound and style. Their first release was at Fat! Records – the Olivia EP – but what really got them in the centre of attention came after. They uploaded a Lauryn Hill bootleg, which got featured on Radio 1, while gaining the support of Bonobo, Diplo and Pete Tong alike. In 2012 they signed to Southern Friend Records and did a remix for Crookers, which landed on Hype Machine’s top list and got 10/10 points on Mixmag, and even got mentioned in the Guardian.
They are releasing fairly regularly at Southern Friend and at Pets Recordings too, but they haven’t stopped remixing either. They reworked tracks from Wretch 32, The 2 Bears and everyone should hear what they did with Fatboy Slim’s Praise You. Naturally, this success meant that they now have gigs all around the world.
Besides them, the LavaLava crew will come from Budapest and boci from MONO8 and Space Inhalerz, so we won’t be out of house beats when Maribou State finishes their set. This is going to be one of the best nights of December, don’t miss it!
