Help yourself to some jazz, soul, and hazy dream pop.
Live music has a strange power to connect — whether between you and the crowd, or with the one performing onstage. It’s probably why so many of us make the difficult trek to faraway venues and spend our savings on concert tickets. It’s an investment on a possible connection, on an opportunity to be part of something.
This is what Karpos Live has become for many local music lovers. With Mix 2.1, their latest undertaking this Aug. 23 at Ayala Malls Vertis North, they put the people and the music together once again for a night of two very different sounds. There’s London-based musician Tom Misch, whose blend of jazz, hip-hop and soul have made him a cult favorite. In fact, even if you haven’t heard tracks such as Beautiful Escape or Movie, we’re pretty sure one of his remixes have made it their way to your Spotify playlists. If you’re feeling something hazier, Australian electronic-dream pop indie artist Vancouver Sleep Clinic will also be playing, lulling us into chill ambient sounds that are brimming with honesty. I mean, what else do you expect from an artist who produced a song called Ayahuasca, right?
At just P3,850 per ticket (exclusive of 7% ticket service), you get two artists for the price of just one. And if even if you don’t claim to be a fan — just yet — this might be a great opportunity to get to know someone new. After all, this is what live music is for. Connections.
