Music Gallery’s X-Avant Festival Show with Shigeto on October 18th // John Kameel Farah Remixes

On October 18th, I’ll be playing at the Music Gallery’s X-Avant Festival alongside Shigeto
who records for excellent US label Ghostly International.   Showtime is 8pm.   More info for the concert here.

There are many other intriguing concerts that are part of the festival including shows by John Kameel Farah, Bob Ostertag/ Pierre Hébert, Jean-François Laporte, Colin Fisher/ Pon de Replay, Man Made Hill, Pursuit Grooves, CONTACT, Sandro Perri and more.

Also, related to the festival, the Music Gallery is putting up a series of remixes of John Kameel Farah’s work on their Soundcloud which serve as a bit of teaser for his forthcoming album as well as his show at the X Avant Festival.  I’m honoured to be involved alongside Rose Bolton, Matthew Ramolo (aka Khôra), Slowpitch and more.  You can follow the series here.
