About the event
SONLIFE: ALBUM LAUNCH SHOW @ THE OLD LIBRARY BAR
SATURDAY 18TH NOVEMBER - 7PM
FREE ENTRY SHOW - NO TICKET REQUIRED
An evening celebrating the launch of SONLIFE's debut album. On the lineup is SONLIFE's live set, a blend of Downtempo, Ambient, Electronic and Jazz. SONLIFE will be accompanied by close friends and collaborators Masiba, a dreamy ambient duo.
The debut album from SE-based Turkish / British producer SONLIFE. It is the proverbial musical journey, made to be listened to from beginning to end, then flipped over for another spin. The album is an 8 track LP that spans genres from Downtempo to Jazz, and is an amalgamation of live instrumentation, field recordings and samples. A lot of the tracks on the album started out as very simple ideas; repetitive, single, distorted loops - “very odd and rough ideas conjured up in the middle of the night in my early twenties”. He originally imagined the project being an experimental solo project in 2015, trying out new sounds and genres. The tracks were back under wraps for a few years when he took a break from making music, and when he returned, they were all reimagined with a brand new life. The album has heavy influences from the likes of Massive Attack, Black Sands-era Bonobo, Portico Quartet and the more dance orientated musicians such as Overmono and Mount Kimbie.
