Saturday 3oth August : #THECHOP feat #Tigermoth (Melb) LP Launch, #Monastry, #Audient #FREE ENTRY

  • Play Bar 72 Campbell St Surry Hills, NSW, 2010 Australia (map)

Join us for the Sydney event of Tigermoth's national tour and LP launch.

Somewhere in the musical ether that connects arrays
of genres, you’ll find Tigermoth floating through
sounds and feeding off different eras. A healthy dose
of electric jazz, boom bap, psych, world music &
LA beats, make up his musical diet.
Born in the Chinese year of the Tiger, Tigermoth’s (aka Tim Paterson) head nodding beats take you on an aural journey. He is a multi instrumentalist who expresses himself using turntables, samplers and FX. His intelligent mixing attests his abstract turntablism, while his film background and jazz leanings allow him to compose sets that tell a story.
A prolific producer, Tigermoth has multiple solo releases and is in high demand for his remix &
soundtrack work. He has recorded, performed with and supported a vast array of local & international artists such as DJ Krush, DJ Vadim, MF Doom, Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, Del the Funky Homosapien, Oh No, Kool Keith, El-P, De La Soul, The Opus, Gaslamp Killer, Cut Chemist, Dizz1 & Aoi.

Fine Beats: Live sets by Tigermoth, Monastry and Audient bringin' grade A beat


In a landscape weary with big room anthems, we bring back the instrumental.
Down tempo at its finest,
Let the music talk…



Audient is the collaborative musical experiment between producers Beau Cummins and Josh Jones, and vocalist Mitchell Gene. The Sydney-based Trio combine electronic beats, sinuous melodies and spacious vocals to deliver a blend of ambiance and texture in their debut EP The Morrow, available now for free.
