Re:Coil Tour 2018
w/ Haywyre, Balkan Bump
Haywyre is a project that synthesizes the best of two musical genres, that of contemporary electronic, along with the more established traditions of classical and jazz. It has been building and maintaining momentum since its creator, Martin Vogt, returned to the U.S. from Austria in 2008. Haywyre continues his mission to provide his listeners with music that not only presents variety and originality, but also carries the essence of a narrative. As one of Monstercat’s most promising young talents, Haywyre is bound to impress the world with his instrumental dexterity and production capabilities.
Balkan Bump is the newly rebranded project from trumpet player/producer Will Magid, based in Oakland. Will is an ethnomusicologist who has been gathering inspiration for his music on all continents, save for Antarctica. A set of his compositions can take you to a Cuban beach, a West African wedding party or a Serbian night club, all within 15 minutes. The musical pieces he is putting out are buoyant jams packed with rich layers of celebratory horns, bouncing percussion, classical strings and even a bit of ambient noise. In the past Will has performed with artists including Pretty Lights, Beats Antique and Bonobo, but is now focusing on his solo music. Just recently Will teamed up with Gramatik and Talib Kweli on “Aymo”, one of the tracks from his upcoming EP that evolved into a collaboration, and was recently released on Lowtemp Records. Gramatik’s independent label will also provide a home for Will’s first EP under the Balkan Bump moniker, expected to drop in early 2018.
