Dummy Presents at CMJ: The Range, Bruce Smear, JIL, and Hannah Lucia at Elvis Guesthouse

14.10.15

Come correct and celebrate Dummy Presents' U.S. debut with a carefully curated capsule collection of artists that matter. Dummy will take over Elvis Guesthouse at CMJ Festival this year, presenting a free showcase of acts at the venue on Saturday, October 17th.

Headlining the event is producer James Hinton aka The Range, who will be joined by Bruce Smear (DJ set), JIL, and Hannah Lucia. Proceedings for the show begin at 9 PM with a curfew beginning at midnight. Elvis Guesthouse can be found at 85 Avenue A, New York 10009, and if it's your first time at the venue, the basement's watering hole can be found on Google Maps here.

Following his 2013 acclaimed album 'Nonfiction', The Range returned last year with a new EP titled 'Panasonic.' – One that further cemented his position as one of electronic music’s unique voices. Elements of light and dark meet dense orchestration, breakbeats and a fresh approach to sampling across all six tracks, which remain true to The Range’s love of R&B, hip-hop and drum & bass, channeled in a way that he has made his own.

Bruce Smear draws inspiration from the sounds of his native city New York. His irrational approach to sampling twists and contorts beats to examine the beauty of reality. Expect highly advanced vibes to reimagine the subway ride you wish you could take every morning.

New York-based JIL is Julian, Isaac and Lucio, three extremely talented jazz musicians that started experimenting with vintage synths and Ableton to give us their take on pop. With Julian's dreamy lyrics and spacey vocals, expect to be drawn into their world and feel their melancholy or joy as they take you on a journey through their new project.'

Living between London and New York, Hannah Lucia has an inherently "U.K. sound". Performed with the subtlety and violence of some of the most notable singers of her generation, Lucia’s disarmingly intimate songwriting leans towards darker, electronic-pop continues to mark her as one of the essential new voices of 2015.
