Janine A’Bear will perform a deep meditative AV set of new and unreleased material in an intimate setting at Project DIVFUSE. Combining processed vocal loops, deep psychedelic arpeggiated synth patterns layered with unique rhythms and distorted recordings.
A’Bear is a multi continental avant synth electronic producer and DJ making cosmic inspired piqued out pop layered through with messed up frenetic beats. South African born, Australian raised, and London grown, Janine A’Bear’s music production and live performances encourage inclusivity and feminist utopia on the dance floor. Described by Resident Advisor as ‘wonderfully unhinged’, A’bear combines psychedelic polyrhythms with distorted bass lines and warped vocals. Trained in gong meditation A’Bear explores her deep connection with the chaos of sound leaving her unique imprint across diverse activities including: her regular radio show EastBlenders with Lia Mice on Threads Radio, on Bristol’s Noods and guest spots on Netil, New Rivers, NTS and Red Light radio; hypnotic live analogue synth club sets; and transcendental track releases on labels including Elestial Sound (USA) and Система (RU).
A’Bears remixes have garnered international attention appearing on forums including female:pressure, RA and Digital in Berlin. Her recent remix on Term Records received praise from the likes of Jeff Mills and Gabriel Prokofiev. A ‘rainbow-rap electronicist’ (Misfit City) with a natural affinity for twisted rhythms, wonky vocal loops and synth grooves, A’bear strives to make meaningful, joyful and impactful new dance tunes delivered across the UK and European club scenes.
