Mistletone & 2SER Present El Guincho at Oxford Art Factory February 15
The great El Guincho of "Bombay" fame brings his kaleidoscopic Spanish fireworks back to Sydney for the first time in 5 years for a full band performance with special dreamboat guest Donny Benet.
A favourite with Australian audiences, El Guincho has transformed huge crowds into ecstatic tropical dance parties at Meredith Music Festival and Laneway. Emerging from a five year break, Canary Islands-born Pablo D az-Reixa - or El Guincho, as he is known and loved - shared a new album, HiperAsia, earlier this year.
Released locally via Mistletone, HiperAsia is another enormous musical leap for El Guincho, recorded in the Canary Islands, Barcelona and Madrid, in a chaotic period for Southern Europe. The music that has emerged is immediately disconcerting; prickly, bright and uncompromising and demanding, it has resonated with a whole new audience of El Guincho fans.
El Guincho changed the face of music videos with his viral hit "Bombay" (over 2.3 million hits), which echoes in his wild new videos for "Comix" and "Pizza" (see bel0w). He has recently been nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Short Form Music Video for "Comix".
Ever the innovator, El Guincho is reinventing music distribution, having launched his HiperAsia collection with wearable tech which comes with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology and an animated Vaporwave short film.
"El Guincho's most resolutely electronic work yet, Hiperasia buzzes like an ice-cream headache (and) reaches frequencies most indie-electronic fusions never knew existed" - PITCHFORK
"A vivid, feverish soundworld of Auto-Tuned vocals, idyllic electronics and machine beats solid enough to stand alongside the best US R&B currently has to offer" - THE WIRE

2SER is a proud Media Partner of Think Inc Present Xiuhtezcatl Martinez at The Factory Theatre, February 12
Displaying a wisdom far beyond his years, Xiuhtezcatl ("Shu-tez-caht") Martinez has been speaking on behalf of the planet since the tender age of six. Today still just a teenager, his extraordinary eloquence has moved audiences which include world leaders, Hollywood celebrities and other impassioned young people across continents who have joined his Earth Guardians activism movement. Through public speaking and hip-hop, Xiuhtezcatl is spreading his message and shifting human consciousness – and in 2017, his message will reach Australia and New Zealand.
Xiuhtezcatl made headlines around the world when he stood before the UN Earth Summit in 2015. Opening his statement in Nahuatl, he went on with the fluency of a spoken word poet to stress the immediacy of climate change, its impact as an issue of human rights, and to lambast politicians for over 20 years of inaction. "We have to remember, we are all indigenous to this earth and that we are all connected"." he urged the delegates. "We are being called upon to use our courage, our innovation, our creativity and our passion to bring forth a new world." Expect to be inspired, challenged and entertained by this impassioned young eco-warrior and musician.

2SER is a media partner of The Bamboos who are ringing in 2017 with an epic New Year's House Party at Sydney's home of soul and jazz, The Basement.
The Bamboos will be joined for a funk / soul / boogie throw-down by three of Sydney's best soulful DJs. Shan Frenzie, Meem and Paris Pompor all present acclaimed weekly shows on 2SER (Groove Therapy, Back To Funk and Jumping The Gap respectively).
This is the first time The Bamboos have played a headline show at The Basement since 2006, so expect this event to sell out well in advance. Only a block away from the fireworks , this promises to be an amazing way to see in the new year.
So this year it's time to skip the celery sticks and French Onion dip at that tired old NYE house party you always get invited to, and come down and catch The Bamboos New Year's Eve House Party!
