BEASTIE RESPOND'S "INFORMATION CITY" IS OUT NOW


MOVES #155 Eva Papamargariti x Beastie Respond x Foul-Up

London based artist Eva Papamargariti works primarily with moving images, with time-based media like video, gif or other animated elements. She creates 2d/3d rendered spaces and scenarios on the verge of digital and physical environments blurring the boundaries between these systems. The cover-motive for Beastie Respond’s album Information City is by Eva Papamargariti. For the evening at Image Movement she will accompany and expand that piece with a series of recent video works. The films explore themes of artificial and natural ecosystems, the ideas of synthetic nature, the way humans, AI, technological infrastructure and organic critters that co-exist in present terrains and territories, how natural landscapes are represented and re-constructed through machinic navigation tools, imaging devices.

The musician Tobias Hjørnet Pedersen started in the late 2000’s to work under the moniker Beastie Respond. The album Information City, his latest release –due September 1st on Foul-Up– is an hybrid work, Beastie Respond moves through contemporary electronic music, taking samples of genres from UK-Bass and Trap to Electro, from Footwork to melodic Synthpop. Though Pedersen retains a sovereignty that keeps the album far from any whiff of patchwork or fiddly handicraft.

Foul-Up finally, a label founded in 2016 is where it all convenes. Let the founder Nicolai Vesterkær Krog have his say: »Foul-Up is an initiative against the oppression of uniformity. Inherent is an aim to pose questions and to do so in order to remain relevant. Our relevance? Our paths will be known by experience, not by predetermined convictions.«


"INFORMATION CITY" RELEASE PARTY

Foul-Up presents the launch party for “Information City”, the new Beastie Respond album.


BEASTIE RESPOND

Copenhagen
Since debuting with the EP “Syncopy” back in 2011, Beastie Respond has re-invented his sound with every release, moving from the moody drum'n'bass of his debut into more colourful realms. On his new album, "Information City”, Beastie Respond presents a stylistically unchained work, drawing on a wide array of sounds while thematically reflecting upon an increasingly digitized society with endlessly expanding data pools and digital realities.
Beastie Respond is mainly known for his releases on Teal Recordings and appearances on Circle Vision, dBridge's Exit Records and Loxy’s Cylon Recordings.
Expect an hyperactive melting pot of sounds and unreleased productions in Beastie Respond’s ever-eclectic DJ sets!

GALAXIAN (Live)

Glasgow

Releases on labels such as Foul-Up, Last Known Trajectory, Lower Parts and (solo plus in collaboration with DJ Stingray) on Shipwrec are both distinctive, remarkably vital and have further cemented his reputation for pushing boundaries in unexpected and exciting new directions. A provocative visual style, political and philosophical attitude further submerge the listener in Galaxian’s visions and ideas. Kitted out in trademark helmet and mask, as if to foresee a collapse of the current social fabric, his live shows are dripping with raw energy and atmosphere generating an immersive experience which commands attention.
Late 2017 promises a new EP on Helena Hauff’s Return To Disorder.
