Campaign Focus – Artists
Outpost are thrilled to be working with the iconic Goldie for the next instalment of Ministry of Sound’s prized ‘Masterpiece’ series. Having worked a successful campaign for predecessor David Rodigan, Outpost are now promoting this next release, which drops on 18th August, across online and print. The musician, drum and bass icon, actor and artist has been on the scene for over 20 years and counting, and with over 3 million records sold worldwide to date and a host of prestigious accolades under his belt, ‘Masterpiece’ sees Goldie curate a three disc musical journey depicting his personal influences and inspirations to share with his fans.
Multi-talented French artist Chassol is releasing his new album ‘Indiamore’ in the UK. Already championed by BBC 6 Music’s Gilles Peterson, the pianist, composer, arranger and musical director for the likes of Phoenix and Sebastien Tellier presents here an unclassifiable artistic piece. Featuring a range of compositions spread over four movements, ‘Indiamore’ is his attempt at a harmonisation of life, sounds, motifs, noises and traffic from Northern India, manifested in an inspired ultrascore of audiovisual experimentation. Outpost are working across online, print and radio to promote the album, set for release on 18th August.
Electro-cinematic soul singer Laura Jae releases her debut EP ‘Silver Lined Hearts’ this month. Boasting a sound which sits somewhere between the atmospheric tones of The xx and the gritty melodies of King Krule, Laura has already been given the seal of approval by i-D’s Hattie Collins, along with being pinned as ‘One To Watch’ by The Guardian’s Paul Lester. Outpost are working across online, radio and specialist print for the release.
Nightmares on Wax
Seminal hip-hop chillout project Nightmares On Wax have released their new 2-disc album ‘N.OW. Is The Time’ via the esteemed Warp Records. The distinctive duo, comprising DJ George Evelyn and Robin Taylor-Firth, spent their youth b-boying their way around the streets of Leeds and Bradford, becoming instrumental in the bleep explosion and consequently helping to shape the burgeoning trip-hop scene. Continuing their ethos of creating an immersive experience aimed to transport listeners into the joyful world of sound systems, all-day parties and endless fun, paradoxically, the only nightmare in this highly anticipated audio adventure is in the name. Outpost are promoting the album across print, radio and online.
Campaign Focus – Events
Outpost are proud to be working across online and print for the second year running for Finland’s national Flow Festival, which returns from 8-10th August to the historic Suvilahti, a disused power plant a stone’s throw from the capital Helsinki. The latest artist update sees soulful R&B songstress Jessie Ware join the likes of Röyksopp and Robyn, How To Dress Well, Outkast, Die Antwoord, The National, Neneh Cherry and Jamie xx. Beyond the music, Flow offers a warm embrace of the arts, offering art displays from Scandinavia and abroad as well as showcasing art house film, cinema, lectures and an exceptional array of world spanning cuisine. Already attracting coverage on Clash, The Huffington Post and The Guardian, who have selected the event as one of their ’10 Best Small Music Festivals in Europe’, Flow looks set to provide a sensory overload of entertainment that’s not to be missed.
The Hydra is proud to announce their 2014 event series and new exclusive residency at Studio Spaces in London. Their monumental launch will take the form of a triple billed Bank Holiday special from 22nd-24th August, bringing an unforgettable line up of the very best underground electronic music to London’s doorstep. Created in 2012, the brainchild of former Head of Programming at The End, Ajay Jayaram, and electronic music connoisseur and off-location event pioneer Dolan Bergin (Electric Minds) – The Hydra (meaning a ‘beast with many heads’ in Greek mythology) has built an inimitable reputation for bringing the biggest names and most cutting edge labels in the world to London. Outpost are excited to be promoting the year’s programme of events across online and print.
