Strawberry Fields, Novel & Brown Alley are proud to present the Strawberry Fields Launch Party featuring none other than Robert Babicz, Tommy Four Seven (Official) and a delicious suite of supporting talent.
Since his fourth full length dropped on Systematic Recordings and the launch of his own label Babiczstyle in 2010, Robert Babicz has continued to reveal his talent and skill as one of Europe’s most essential techno producers.
Robert’s musical output is inspiring and staggering. A true one-man operation, he writes, records and performs solo; commanding an ever-expanding touring schedule, tailoring the music he creates to the cities he visits. But that’s only part of the puzzle, Babicz's art is comprised of more than just his music. He films everything. Using his music to open doors and build relationships with people in only the way music can, he then records his experiences and interaction on film, both still and moving, later editing the images together as a picture track to his audio. Robert creates short films that capture the emotions, colours and feel of his trips, his music and the people he finds who want to be part of that experience. In turn these then also have an effect on his music colouring his emotive, unique take on electronica with a very human feel.
TOMMY FOUR SEVEN
In a musical landscape that’s often turning towards its rich heritage for inspiration, it’s rare to find an artist as distinctive as British born, Berlin based DJ and producer Tommy Four Seven, who has established himself as a prolific force throughout an enviable career just shy of a decade.
Since relocating from London in 2008, he has gone on to position himself as a core member of Chris Liebing’s renowned label CLR, using his own studio in an industrial sector of the city as a base from which to craft the acutely visceral sound he calls his own.
It was following remixes for lauded producers Lucy and Traversable Wormhole, that Tommy announced his boldest statement to date in the form of his debut album Primate. Released in 2011, it was a move that was to bolster his standing as one of the most exciting acts around, not least for it’s singular approach to sound design and refreshingly abrasive attitude.
It also goes in hand with solo shows across Japan, Australia, North and South America, and throughout Europe, including a staggering 12-hour set at the infamous Berghain, it marks the start of another chapter in a truly covetable career.
