From the organizer:
CAMA keep consistent by bringing yet another well respected musician to Hanoi. This time it’s electronic beat maker Daisuke Tanabe who’ll be making the trip over the East Sea for his Hanoi debut on Saturday 14 July at ATK. Patience is a virtue, and few know that better than understated electronic beat-maker Daisuke Tanabe.
After carefully honing his craft from the age of 16, it was his first EP release in 2006 that really brought him to the attention of Gilles Peterson and Pete Adarkwah. Since then he has remixed artists such as Elan Mehler and Aaron Jerome, and released music on the ever-reliable Ninja Tune label. Daisuke’s sound has been likened to electronic music maestros like Bonobo and Pantha Du Prince, music to the ears of those into left-field ambient electronica.
Taking inspiration from jazz, folk, and reggae as well as the whole canon of electronic music, the young Japanese national will be playing his laidback electronica for one night only in Hanoi. It marks a rare chance for Hanoians interested in electronic music to enjoy an off-beat performer in a relaxed, laid-back lounge environment.
Ticket price: VND 80,000 in advance; VND 120,000 on the door
