Multi-genre American producer Tall Black Guy comes to Perth in his first Australian tour
Detroit hip hop, soul, jazz producer Tall Black Guy plays his debut Perth set at The Manor, Leederville on Friday 19th September 2014. Supported by local singer Mei Saraswati, duo Move DJ’s and veteran DJ Charlie Bucket, the multi-genre producer will be bringing his sought-after sound to The Manor.
TBG productions are filled with incredibly clever sample flips and deft production chops and he is considered one of the most influential producers working today. TBG counts DJ Jazzy Jeff, J Rocc and Questlove as some of his fans. Since 2011 TBG has been producing his first vinyl releases and has been winning fans across the globe.
Born Terrell Wallace, TBG has worked with rapper Skyzoo, hip hop group The Foreign Exchange and 80s babies. UK-based DJ veteran Gilles Petersen included him on one of his Brownswood Bubblers albums. Ethereal Mei Saraswati will be performing a live set of her hypnotic sounds. Mei is a unique local singer who combines beautiful lyrics with atmospheric beats. Charlie Bucket, as usual, will be bringing the classic hip-hop beats to warm up the crowd.
This year, The Manor has hosted Apollo Brown, Peanut Butter Wolf, Exile, DJ MK and TY. The Manor is still Perth’s only hip hop, soul and jazz music focused venue hosting many national and international artists, including being the home of Perth’s best hip hop DJ, veteran Charlie Bucket.
Tickets for Tall Black Guy’s set on Friday 19th September at The Manor Leederville are available from Highs and Lows Mt Lawley for $20. Door sales will also be available.
