Sinjin Hawke x Zora Jones & Kumail
23 November 2018
Before releasing his long-awaited debut ‘First Opus’, Sinjin Hawke had already achieved recognition as one of the most groundbreaking producers in the experimental club realm. A specialist in choir manipulation and monolithic orchestral arrangements, collaborative pieces with Just Blaze, DJ Rashad and MikeQ paved his way to produce for Kanye West and Frank Ocean.
With the establishment of Fractal Fantasy in 2014, Sinjin and Zora Jones created an environment for their interactive experiments to live in, and by 2017 it was being touted as one of the most innovative new audiovisual platforms.
Zora Jones enters the international arena with debut release ‘100 Ladies', a profoundly unique seven-song offering that elicits shattered glass nested in choral arrangements, seemingly beamed from deep space. Zora's prowess in contemporary sound design has established her as one of the most intriguing technicians of 2015, and with the creation of Fractal Fantasy alongside orchestral master Sinjin Hawke, the pair's series of videos and interactive experiments have challenged archetypes of traditional artistry with an unparalleled attention to detail.
Kumail is a producer, performing artist and DJ from Mumbai, India. Over the last four years, he has ascended to the very top of India’s burgeoning culture of electronic music on two parallel paths - as a roughneck DJ notorious for breaking ankles, and as a gifted musician and bandleader drawing expansive canvases of rhythm, texture and emotion. In 2018, those paths led him to a DJ set at Dimensions Festival 2018 in Croatia and a string of several live festival dates across India in the winter. In the past, he has shared the stage with the likes of Shigeto, Four Tet, DJ Koze, Teebs, Ratatat, Mount Kimbie and Kutmah, and been featured on boxout.fm, Boiler Room, Sofar Sounds, and COLORS.
