The Decibel Kid - Montag Launch Party

  • The Smokehouse South Street Studios 6 South Street IP1 3NU (map)

The Decibel Kid will release his second full-length album "Montag" to CD, download and streaming on Friday 16 June 2017. There will be a free launch event featuring a live performance of the entire album at The Smokehouse, South Street Studios, Ipswich from 8pm.

"Montag" is a ten-track album of entirely new music composed during the previous six months in The Decibel Kid's "Red Room" Studio. It combines analogue elements such as jazz and funk drumming, guitar and found-sounds with electronic synths, sequences and effects. The album also includes vocal contributions from Jade Amber Green, Flavian Capes, Piers Harrison-Reid and Bessie Turner. The album is mastered by Craig Shimmon, whose work includes "NIGHT/LIFE" by Sorrdes (FKA Deadpoole).

“Montag” is the follow-up to 2014’s twelve-track album “Move It In Sections”, which formed the basis of a mini tour in 2015 - including supporting Ninja Tunes’ DJ Food at Norwich Arts Centre and Posthuman at the John Peel Centre in Stowmarket. This in turn was the follow up to 2013’s “(red)”, a six-track compilation of experimental audiovisual work. Both releases are still available on CD, download and streaming and every track has an original video on The Decibel Kid’s official YouTube channel.

The Decibel Kid directed a music video for “Oil” by local Rock-Pop band SuperGlu in 2016, and has produced several videos for Getonthe SoapBox Events. He is the artist behind the 2013 Switch Fringe “Ipswich Zelda Map” and also curates Ipswich’s semi-regular “Switch Hop” nights, which began in 2012 and promotes “Live Electronica, Experimental Music and Arty Nonsense”
