Saturday, August 18th, 2018
Leeuwarden, Netherlands Antilles
A global favourite in the dub/electronic music scenes, producer and solo artist Gaudi keeps his ever-growing fan base with his infectious bass-driven tunes and innovative production tecniques.There’s no easy way to encapsulate Gaudi’s vast body of work, for the past three decades he has been shattering genre barriers, pioneering electronic-dub, world-music and reggae, his distinctive sound has contributed to productions, collaborations, song-writing and remixes for acts including: The Orb, Simple Minds, Lee Scratch Perry, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Deep Forest, Lamb, Sizzla, Michael Rose, Bob Marley, Shpongle, Beats Antique, Trentemoller, Michael Franti, Dub FX, Balkan Beat Box, Youth, Dub Pistols, Grandmaster Flash, The Beat, Barrington Levy, Horace Andy, Afrika Bambaataa to name but a few. Whether he is finessing high-profile projects in the studio, or whipping a crowd into a frenzy, theItalian-born UK-based artist places all importance on sonic perfection and providing the best auralexperience for his fans. He has done so for his entire career, which has seen the release of 16 soloalbums, 250 music productions and a number of movie soundtracks. Live, every Gaudi performance is unique and unpredictable in the best possible way as, honouring the traditions of old school dub, he never uses a computer on stage. A consumate musician and live performer, he plays theremin, minimoog, vocoder, tape echoes, percussion, multi-effects, stylophone and dub sirens, mixing his live dub vocals through analogue equipment to maximum effect. Beyond the music, a burning passion reveals itself in a scathing rebuttal of tyranny and oppression through sonic resistance. In constant demand on the live touring and festival circuits, Gaudi spreads the words of peace and love on every stop, performing at some of the best festivals on the planet, from Shambhala, Motion Notion, Harvest, Eclipse in Canada; to Reggae on The River, Burning Man, Lightning in a Bottle, Photosynthesis, Symbiosis, Wanderlust on the West Coast of the USA; Wakarusa in the South; The Big Up, Gratifly, Okeechobee, Kinnection on the East Coast; Boom Festival in Portugal; Glastonbury, Glade, Waveform, One Love, Gatecrasher, The Big Chill, Boomtown, Noisily in the UK; Vasundhara, Chilltop, Bass Camp, Sulafest, Indie March in India; Electric Picnic, Body & Soul in Ireland; Ozora, Samsara, S.U.N, No Man’s Land in Hungary; Indigo, Twistival in Israel, Rainbow Serpent, Earthcore, Eclipse 2012, Earth frequency, Peatsridge in Australia; Universo Paralello and Skol Beat in Brazil; Sonica and Rototom Sunsplash in Italy; Tribal Gathering in Panama; Re:birth, Solstice Festival, Zanpa Jam in Japan, Envision in Costa Rica, Sticky Jam in Russia and far, far beyond.
