Cyril Hahn (CAN) & Chrome Sparks (US) – Max Watt’s – Saturday 27th February 2016
BBE & ASTRAL PEOPLE join forces to present some of the most fresh and faded sounds in music this February. Featuring Canada’s R&B remixer and maker of undeniably seductive anthems, Cyril Hahn, and beat boy wonder Chrome Sparks (US), tipped equally for his dazed melodies and vintage production styles.
In a very rare appearance together, Cyril Hahn and Chrome Sparks will be headlining a collaborative show at Max Watt’s Sydney on Saturday 27th February.
“My friends always describe my music as sex music or make-out music so I guess if you wanna get down to business my songs are just what you need,” Cyril Hahn once told a major newspaper about his musical focus. Using his ability to construct emotive beats like no other, Hahn introduced his signature sound through a handful of remixes in 2012.
Reworking the modern classics of Destiny’s Child and Mariah Carey into global hits for internet ears, the tracks hit millions of plays across Soundcloud and Youtube and inspiring, no doubt, countless dance-floor make outs. Since signing to PMR Records, the prolific producer has shown no sign of slowing down with vibrant EPs ‘Perfect Form’ (2013), ‘Voices’ (2014) and 2015’s haunting ‘Begin’, crafting entirely original sounds, still with his trademark eerily twisted melodies and R&B motivated lyrics.
Classically-trained musician and producer Chrome Sparks pulls his colourful melodies and hypnotizing soundscapes from custom synths, live drumming, delicate layers of percussion and soulful 70’s samples. His break-out single in 2013 ‘Marijuana’ is a the pinnacle of this, a fluttering piece of synth-centred bass music that unexpectedly set the internet alight.
More recently, his latest EP Parallelism casually lists its ingredients as: “minimoog model d, roland juno-60, a custom modular synthesizer and field recordings taken in Machu
Picchu.” So it’s little wonder the Brooklyn-based gear nerd was snapped up by Future Classic and has a global fan base clamouring for his latest and wholly unique tunes.
