Harvey Sutherland’s improvisational live show – equal parts 808 rattle and double disco clap – is an evolving, synthetic boogie exploration. Manning the controls of the mighty Juno 60 synthesizer, Harvey sweats it out with the crowd, looping new phrases and modulations, pitch-bent solos and the occasional Janet Jackson cover into a heavy four-to-the-floor throwdown.
Sutherland will be accompanied by his band, Bermuda + supports.
The producer and keyboard player has worked steadily since 2013, releasing a handful of highly-coveted records for People’s Potential Unlimited, Echovolt and Voyage Recordings. His music has resonated with a global community of dancers and DJs, with support from luminaries Hunee, Sassy J, Bradley Zero and Motor City Drum Ensemble.
A string of early EPs put him on the international circuit, with his appearances at Corsica Studios, Rex Club and Panorama Bar highlighting an extensive touring schedule. He has featured on Boiler Room, the Resident Advisor Sessions series and garnered critical praise from NPR, Tiny Mix Tapes, Strine Whine and Test Pressing.
Sharing the name of his breakout 12” for the MCDE imprint, ‘Bermuda’ is Sutherland’s live band – a futurist outfit comprising Melbourne musicians Graeme Pogson (drums) and Tamil Rogeon (electric strings). The trio interpret Sutherland’s productions with flair and relentless consistency, bringing a unique energy to the club space. They have appeared at Meredith Music Festival, Sugar Mountain, Dimensions Festival and performed a sold-out UK debut at the London Jazz Cafe.
Supports: Happy Axe, Trim B and DJs FB Perimeter, Cressy and Genie
