Unorthodox Paradox presents Pleasure Complex & 7shades

Unorthodox Paradox presents Pleasure Complex & 7shades

Jun 3, 8:00pm - Jun 4, 2:00am

Dark Horse Moseley
Alcester Road
Birmingham,  B13 8JP Map

Unorthodox Paradox presents Pleasure Complex & 7shades.

Making their Midlands debut, Pleasure Complex will be venturing north from the barren spiritual wasteland of old London Town. Arising phoenix-like from the ashes of 'Mother' (who UP regulars may remember for their death defying performance at the 2015 'Midlands Edition' at The Bridges), Pleasure Complex have lost none of that live edge, instead adding several layers of pop naus and songwriting dexterity to make the whole package even more nutritious. Bolstered by the spectacular angular guitar of Scott Rimington (GLASS, The Gathering Doubt), theirs is a sound that is sharp as a pin, and as 'now' as a zen alarm clock. You'd be well advised to check them out before inevitable crossover success moves them to places much further away than the pub on your doorstep.

Meanwhile UP stalwarts 7shades return to amuse and confuse, with a set that will feature brand new material from their third album, due for release in Summer 2017. You might say that the band has matured in terms of performance & songwriting, but that would pertty much just be to say that the material has got even tastier and even smellier. Still pretty much a ludicrous proposition, a live gig from 7shades is (as Cursor Miner put it) - “Like being kidnapped by a bunch of semi-delinquent wizards and beaten round the head with inflatable cutlery.”. Or, as Roger Trenwith from The Progressive Aspect said about last album ‘Bursting’ - “Musical inventiveness oozes out of every zero and one on this kaleidoscopic album…edge-of-seat inspired lunacy”

Support to be confirmed, but inevitably DJs will keep your brain massaged in between bands, and visual stimuli will be provided to dazzle your peepers.

8pm kick off, 2pm shutdown

Advance tickets £4 + booking fee, more on the door (if available)

Special offers on selected drinks at the bar

MOTD

The Mouse Outfit Biography (with Dr Syntax & Sparkz):

The Mouse Outfit is a 9 piece live band and production team centred around Chini (keys), Pitch (percussion/MPC) and Defty (bass). Their acclaimed debut album won UK hip hop album of the year 2013 (Wordplay Magazine) and was ranked in ABC News’ top 50 albums of 2013. Since the release of ‘Escape Music’ (which is now available on double vinyl through HHV.DE), their profile has increased significantly, both within the UK and internationally. The album featured many of Manchester’s most talented MCs, but the live show is fronted by UK hip hop legend Dr Syntax and verbal acrobat Sparkz. A horn heavy and funk driven live show combines original material with medleys of classic hip hop and bboy breaks, which has lead the band to be a firm favourite at festivals and clubs throughout the UK. Earlier in their career they built a loyal fan base supporting many of the world’s finest hip hop acts including Chali 2na, Souls Of Mischief, Akil the MC and The Sugarhill Gang. Their reputation as a high quality live act resulted in two invitations to perform at the BBC’s legendary Maida Vale Studios in London. 2014 saw the band take their brand of funk, jazz and reggae influenced hip hop to France, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic and Croatia, with key slots at prestigious festivals such as Soundwave, Outlook and Fusion.
The Mouse Outfit are due to release their second album in early 2015 and follow this with a series of European shows and an extensive UK tour. Expect further collaborations with some of the most talented vocalists the UK has to offer and a brand new live show.


The MCs:

Dr Syntax is well known for his solo work and collaborations with Foreign Beggars, having featured on their first four studio albums. His extensive touring has also taken him to festivals such as Glastonbury, Splash! (Germany), Hip Hop Kemp (Czech Republic), Outlook and Soundwave (Croatia).

Sparkz is one of the most hyped young MCs in the UK – hosting hip hop and bass music events from London and Manchester to Outlook (Croatia). He is most noted for his collaborations with The Mouse Outfit and Dub Phizix.
