Jonny Faith Sydney Show


The Chop & Play Bar Presents

Jonny Faith live in Sydney as part of his national tour and recent album release "SUNDAIL" with UK recording label Tru Thoughts. Also with support from some amazing live production acts and some of our city's top Dj's such as Roleo (Live), Mase Boogie of Paper Plane Project and Benny Hinn .... Definately not a night to me miss.

Drawing on a wide range of musical influences from the past and present, Jonny Faith has crafted his own individual sound overflowing with intricate percussion and lush, organic tones.

“This guy’s music is rooted in hip-hop but oozes cosmic sensibility” -Hyponik.com

Originating from Edinburgh, but now based in Melbourne, Faith gained hisear for rhythm and sound as a DJ and turntablist spinning hip hop, jungle and D&B, both in the UK and Australia, for some years. After a while, like many DJs, he turned his hand to his own productions and sound. Faith’s early music had a strong dub and reggae tinge, with one early single release coming under the alias Dropwise Dubs through the Sydney based Foreign Dub imprint. Although dub sensibilities and production techniques still underpin Faith’s style he moved into the hip hop future beats scene with aplomb hosting both a radio show and club night in Sydney dedicated to the emerging experimental beats sounds sweeping the globe.

In 2011 Faith took this instrumental hip hop tip in his own direction with his “Blue Sky on Mars” EP for Civil Music. Adopting a strong, galactic, synth based theme for the project, this first offering featured sci-fi samples, futuristic beats and remixes from the likes of Ital Tek and Dizz 1.

Today, Jonny Faith’s sound has grown into a warm and emotive experience summed up by his debut full length album forthcoming on Tru Thoughts. Entitled ‘Sundial’, this first LP is a rich tapestry of individual sonic threads, expertly crafted into a single form. Intended as a full, feature length work rather than throw away, standalone tracks it is one to plug in to and digest from start to finish.

"That’s what’s going on… Sundial sounds absolutely sick!" Jay Scarlett, Beat Dimensions

Future projects from Jonny are set to expand upon his worldly, cosmic sound and incorporate even wider influence from across the universe.

He is also in preparation to take his sound to the stage and utilise his DJ-ing and Turntablist experience in a new set incorporating his own tracks, remixes and album material.
