CMB / SYNTHIA, ANDRE OBIN, HELIXHAND & DJ CAIRN BARROW - DEC 21st, 2018
JUNGLE UP wrapped up the year with the first annual Holiday Pop Crush, a showcase of our artists and friends.
Our night started off with the synth mastery of Helixhand (Ashley Capachione), a visionary sound/video artist and electronic music producer who has released music with Phantasma Disques, Cleopatra Records, Apothecary Compositions, Haute Magie Records and Unspeakable Records, and who has performed at SXSW, Together Festival, and Discwoman. She left us wanting much more with her short-but-sexy set.
Wrapped in a veil of neon lights and smoke and surrounded by a slick set up of synthesizers, Andre Obin played his solo set of solid hits including ‘Loaded Soul’ and ‘Cinnamon’. Obin sounded like a modern pop twist on classic 80’s sounds.
The evening was headlined by sister act CMB ft. SYNTHIA. They were joined by JUNGLE UP label mates Jimmy Rossi Jr. of AVOXBLUE and Nikolas. The tracks were “dense, industrial pop epics with a slight Eastern tinge”, their live set has been known to “ envelope the crowd” with “shimmering and uplifting and perfectly tailored to the chillout tents of America”, according to Boston Hassle.
Our very own house DJ Cairn Barrow played a chill blend of downtempo, and house throughout the entirety of the night. We felt blessed to bliss out to his manicured sets. As expected, the jams kept people on their feet ‘til sunrise.
