This Friday (26th), Top Banana will be welcoming an up and coming French DJ- Miss blue from French Brittany ( http://dj-blue.fr/ //https://soundcloud.com/dj-miss-blue // Dj miss blue ) is currently touring Southeast Asia and will get the party going at Top Banana from 9pm.
Miss Blue has been credited with being the central artist in the modern day Breizh’n’Bass movement. A longstanding DJ and producer, Blue blends traditional Breton language music with upfront modern electronica. She seeks to encourage listeners of differing ages and cultures to take a moment to understand different musical preferences and tastes. In the process, she could possibly be progressing the preservation of the now marginalised Breton language and culture.
Blue draws on influences from hip-hop, dancehall, jungle drum and bass, electro, breakbeat, dubstep and beyond, grounding her DJ sets and beat production in an ethos drawn from formative years spent as a B-girl and graffiti writer.
Since taking up the turntables and studio production consoles, Blue has performed at festivals and nightclubs across Europe, America, Canada and Asia, in the process playing alongside Diplo, DJ Zinc, Sinden, Sebastian, DJ Mujava, Brodinski and countless others.
In terms of affiliations, Blue is a member of international female DJ crew Geishaz and is sponsored by Kanabeach Clothing and Adidas. She also tutors students in the art of DJing in her spare time and has taken part in scratching workshops with DJ Q-Bert.
A new development in Blue’s career is her Breizh’n’Bass live show, which she performs via Ableton Live, in conjunction with musical and vocal assistance from top tier traditional Breton language musicians brothers Guichen and Eric Marchand and Yann Fanch Kemener. From this concept, Blue is working towards two albums, one incorporating traditional Breton language music into electronica and one of straight-up instrumental tunes.
Top Banana will be Free Entry as usual with free shots every Hour.
Happy hour offers from 4pm till 8pm with draft beer just $0.75!
