Los Angeles, CA, 90057
This event is 21 and over
Tolliver is a soul singer born and raised in the Midwest, cornfed and churchified. He’s spent years playing in Stax-inspired boozy bar bands, including Black Diet, an act that won best new bands honors from a slew of Minneapolis publications and filmed a nationally syndicated PBS special at the end of 2014.
His first solo EP, Quartertone, was written and recorded with Chilean producer Lister Rossell, an acclaimed beatsmith and sound designer who’s worked with singers from London to South Africa. The EP was a blistering indictment of American greed, Tolliver’s attempt at a modern What’s Going On?
Tolliver packed up for Los Angeles just after that release in hopes of escaping the crippling cold and making his best record yet. He got his wish in the form of Rave Deep, an EP about years spent depressed and high, self-exiled from family and desperate for love.
Elephant and Castle, who produced and co-wrote the EP, is signed to Plug Research, and has worked with Tune-Yards, dd_elle, Naytronix, and a host of other genre-bending, pocket-stretching r&b influenced acts.
"Eddington Again describes himself as "African American Indigo here to transcend the mundane". As versatile as they are forward their sonic style ranges from classic soul and r&b bops to experimental pop ballads. He invites you to experience the 'middle rhythm' with their latest project Sweet, a four track EP out now on NEWBODY RECORDS."
Callie is an LA based producer and resident Dublab Dj. Her music aims to address tender feelings of vulnerability, tension and the overlap between our internal and external systems. Her musical intentions are grounded in the desire to reflect these concepts by selecting sounds, samples, and vocal manipulations which are texturally tangible, confrontational and able to occupy their own physical and emotional space.
Since moving back to Los Angeles in August of 2015, Callie has immersed herself in the Los Angeles Beat and electronic scene, performing shows with the likes of Kenny Segal (Team Supreme), Mystery Cave (Alpha Pup/Psychic Fortitude), Dot (Team Supreme/Unspeakable Records), Swarvy (Leaving Records/Street Corner Music), and Iman Omari (Vibe Music Collective). Callie will be releasing her most recent project, "Milk", via Rootnote Collective and will be playing The Unsilent Cinema Festival in Downtown LA September 30th alongside fellow DUBLAB DJS, Daedalus (Brainfeeder) and Dntel (Jimmy Tamborello).
