Eastern Electrics 2014
Saturday 2nd August 2014
Hatfield House, The House Office, Great North Rd, Hatfield, Hertfordshire AL9 5NQ
The UK?s premier underground electronic music event Eastern Electrics Festival returns on Saturday August 2nd and has announced the first six names on a lineup that will represent the finest from the UK underground and beyond for one unforgettable all-day party.

Proponents of a low-slung bass-infused house sound, Art Department join the party, alongside BPitch Control head and creative genius Ellen Allien, and deep house luminary and champion of all things soul Kerri Chandler. Chart-topping house upstart Route 94 is on the bill, as is Tania Vulcano, an underground force to be reckoned with, and acclaimed house and techno selector tINI rounds up The Six ? but this is only the beginning; Eastern Electrics Festival is curating a lineup of more than 30 acts, soon to be announced.

And now Eastern Electrics Festival can also reveal the location of its new home, Hatfield House in Hertfordshire. Coming to a stately home only 20 minutes outside of London, and only a minute?s walk from Hatfield train station, Eastern Electrics Festival celebrates the very best sounds coming from an electronic music scene that has never been so diverse, exciting or innovative. Providing a majestic setting for an inspirational lineup and rousing party atmosphere, Hatfield House is an impressive backdrop ? and a solid home for one of the UK?s most revered electronic music events.

Promoter Rob Star presents the third annual edition of Eastern Electrics Festival this year: ?The feedback from the event last year was so good that it made sense to stay in the Hertfordshire countryside, so we decided to relocate to the beautiful Hatfield House. It?s such a great move for us, and comes with the advantage of being right across the road from the train station, so you walk off the train and straight into the festival grounds.

?The new venue also means that we can retain all of the attractions that made last year?s event at Knebworth so special, including the Electric City, the fairground rides, the bespoke stages and our favourite pub the Star of EE. Hatfield House ticks all the boxes for us and we're certain that this will be the first of many Eastern Electrics Festival events here. Welcome to your new EE home!?

Having grown from one of the UK?s premier underground warehouse raves launched in 2007 to a fully fledged 10,000-capacity music festival, Eastern Electrics is a brand that always delivers, and which has broken boundaries in experimental music programming.

In addition to today?s announcement, there are more than 30 acts still to be revealed ? look out for more details in early April.

Plus, the Eastern Electrics Festival faithful can extend the party with a monster after-party at The Coronet Theatre. More information for that coming soon? Tickets are on sale now, starting at £15.

Keep an eye on easternelectricsfestival.co.uk and facebook.com/easternelectrics for more information.

Boy George
28th April 2014
The Fillmore, 1805 Geary Blvd.,
Boy George Put on the spot on a TV show and asked the title of his next album, Boy George blurted out This Is What I Do. It wasn't as random as this story suggests, the title was one of a few being mulled over, but the decision was instant and it has stuck. The simple statement of fact -- This Is What I Do -- is telling and significant because so much has gone on over the years to actually obscure what George does and who he is. "It's about re-establishing myself musically to say this is what I do. I was at the Brits a couple of years ago and some unexpected people were giving me name checks, like Cee Lo Green and Arcade Fire. It made me think, a lot of people know who I am and have this affection for me but they don't really know why they like me. I had to ask myself, well who and what are you?" George is famous enough for all of us to have an opinion and think we know who he is. On This Is What I Do we are likely to be confounded. Close your eyes, empty your mind, and as another '80s pop star once said, listen without prejudice. This may be the best record he's ever made. It's the record he's always had the promise to make but only now through life experience has been able to find a direct line to his muse. In the process he freed his spirit to explore not just his own psyche but the diverse influences that have inspired him over the years -- from dub to rap, Woolwich to Jamaica, glam rock to country, mean streets to sunny uplands. "I went back to the soul, the essence of what I do. That's been important for me. There have been a few periods over the years where I didn't listen to music. It was almost like the birds stopped singing. I can measure my own wellness by how much I listen to music. "With this record we were playing lots of stuff in the studio, random things that weren't anything to do with what we were doing, but to get a feeling. We were listening to lots of what I call baggy music, music that is not programmed, slightly out of time, a bit loose, has its own footprint. I do a lot of dance stuff as a DJ and in collaboration with other people and I wanted to step away from that and do something more organic. I know that's clichd, but that's what I was after." The list of listening ranged from early Bowie and the Stones to Cockney Rebel, Nico and Lou Reed. "The album was easy to make. There's a lot of love on it, a lot of love, and people I've worked with over the years came and contributed." Just that statement, to those who knew George in his Culture Club days is shocking in itself. Recording sessions were always filled with drama and George hated the studio environment virtually being dragged in to do his vocals and running out as fast as he could. "Making albums has always been a drama for me, but this was just beautiful and if I do another Culture Club record it has to be fun. It doesn't have to be a headache. We get paid to do what we love. It's such a pleasure to do what we do. "The album started off with reggae as the template but then it branched out into other things. We didn't want to restrict ourselves because you've got to honour the song, so if a song has a certain type of energy you can't force it into a genre. "We went back to the '70s, which was the time that shaped me as a musician and a person. The '70s was such a bonkers decade, everything from the Sex Pistols to The Goombay Dance Band. Even though Culture Club were associated so much with the '80s, our roots were in the '70s -- reggae, glam rock, punk rock, disco, electro. I think this record is very '70s." George has stretched his musical repertoire while retaining his soulfulness and pop sensibility. He's found his inner rock god on "My God," explored country swing on "It's Easy," entered a dream-like altered state on "Any Road," gone sultry and wistful on "Death Of Samantha," and reminded us, and maybe himself, of his playful side on "Nice And Slow." The exploration of his musical roots mirrors the personal journey of self-discovery he has embarked on since becoming sober in 2008. Another milestone was turning 50 two years ago. "It was a huge turning point for me. I thought I've got to get my s~~t together, I've got to focus, this is important. I just felt I'd wasted a lot of time. I looked at myself and thought, God, I've done nothing. I know I've done a lot, I've always worked, I've grafted and always made money, but a lot of it was pointless because no one knew what I was doing." He changed management, got a new DJ agent and set out on the path to show the world the real Boy George, the one who had been obscured in a haze, some of it his own doing, some of it simply the myths that had built up around him. There is a growing acknowledgement that George is one of those artists whose reputation needs to be reappraised. There has been a steady stream of these over the years. Antony Hegarty paid his tribute to George when they duetted on "You Are My Sister" in 2005. In 2010, Mark Ronson invited George to sing on "Somebody To Love Me." Earlier this year George was a guest of Yoko Ono at the Meltdown festival. This Is What I Do is set to further enhance that reappraisal and show the world that George is not only back, he's an important artist with an irrepressible zest for life. When you connect your ears will quiver, your soul will shiver and you'll want to dance like Saint Vitus.

Next Wave #566: Oceaán
Oceaán by Liam MF Warwick for Clash
Down-tempo, seductive electro jams...

With his silky neo-soul falsetto, dark melancholic R&B beats and rather elusive €˜net presence, one might expect Oceaán to be a little too cool.

However, as Clash speaks to him, 20-year-old Oliver Cean (€œYes, that is my real name€) comes across as brightly friendly, slightly stammering and exceptionally polite.

With his first original track, €˜Need U€™, released on SoundCloud several months ago, we wonder why it€™s taken him so long to upload a second, €˜To Lose€™.

€œI didn€™t want to release anything without thinking about the route that I want to go down,€ he considers, €œand within that time frame I was primarily focusing on the remixes I was commissioned, along with defining my own sound.€

His sound is dark as it is beautiful, stylish and delicate James Blake-like rhythms suited to party comedowns and nighttime city drives. €œI feel flattered when people compare my material to James Blake and other artists, like Sampha, as they€™re extremely gifted individuals,€ he says of the critical parallels.

We ask the Manchester producer about what it€™s like to work on his own. €œIt€™s taught me to be self-sufficient when composing, not thinking of any deadlines or anyone in particular I€™m trying to impress. It€™s a lonely and fulfilling process.€

And what is his music-making process, exactly? €œI usually begin with a melody or hook that appears in my head. Conversely, there have been times where it€™s been a particular rhythm or timbre that inspired me from something else. From then it€™s a case of putting pen to paper, which can take hours to days.€

Oceaán seems meticulous when it comes to producing music. €œI like to make a library of things I€™ve collected and archive them. I write a lot of classical and choral music as well, along with experimenting with samples I€™ve created or collected.€

Having been brought up on a diet of Joy Division, The Sound and classical music, it€™s no wonder his musical creations fuse shadowy atmospheres with a wonderfully delicate and precise composition, a combination that will surely enthral.
