Sunday High Cookout
Venky's & Mixtape Present Da High Cookout feat. Downtown Groove
TIMING-17 SEPT AT 1:30 TO 4:30 PM
We're vibing to some crazy genres this Cookout! Mixtape presents 'Downtown Groove' featuring two of the most talented artists! One whose music has been influenced by a plethora of genres and the other that evolved his music from instrumental hip hop and downtempo! We have Ape Machines and Sau Poler in the house this Sunday!About the artistsApe Echoes - Ape MachinesApe Echoes formerly known as Ape Machines is the frankensteinian brainchild of Bombay-based producers and multi-instrumentalists, Nirmit Shah and Sid Shirodkar. Alternately moving through territories influenced by crossover-jazz, electronica, noise, hip-hop, prog-rock, funk, and soul, Ape Machines forms a sonically and emotionally varied palette. The producer pair frequently combine traditional acoustic and electronic instrumentation with more raw or experimental elements, weaving together an immersive musical narrative.After forming in early 2016, the pair was soon joined by Sahil Shah on drums and Harsh Gadhvi on bass. Theirdebut EP, ‘Ape Machines’, was released in August 2017.Sau PolerOrganic and optimistic with a tinge of melancholic wistfulness, Sau Poler's music feels bright, modern and intimate. Grooving basslines, shuffling beats, and taut samples coalesce around a unified sound that melds house, pop, R&B and techno into a fluid and distinct feeling, one that also imparts a nostalgic twinge and uncanny but reassuring sense of déjà vu.Soler started out producing instrumental hip hop and downtempo but has since evolved his sound. In the past few years he has played on stages around the world, including many venues in Europe, Mexico, NYC and at Barcelona’s own Sónar. Since 2013 he has released several EPs on Amsterdam’s Atomnation label as well as remixing a plethora of artists. One of a new wave of electronic producers emerging from the cultural hub of Barcelona, along with peers such as John Talabot and Pional, Sau Poler makes accessible and uplifting dance music with a subtle balearic undertow.Come home to the music!!!
