Fred Perry are back with their first 2013 instalment of SubSonic, the fashion brands ode to great music in London.
In 2012, Fred Perry celebrated 60 years as an icon of fashion and it’s unparalled relationship with British subcultures over the last 6 decades. Fred Perry continues to support the up and coming and to that end the Fred Perry Sub-Sonic Live series continues at The Garage this March, presenting a selection of artists and DJs that are pushing things forward, here and now.
This instalment includes :
King Krule is South East London’s rough jewel. A very talented young man, his unexpected deep and mournful baritone is disappointment and disillusionment personified. His first UK tour was a sell out and his status as ‘one to watch’ was cemented with an inclusion in the BBC’s Sound of 2013 poll. Global recognition has already started to spread, as he begins to break America, having been a standout performance at CMJ, and his show at the Pitchfork Festival made him the talk of Paris.
The young songstress has already caught the attention of the 2013 MOBO Spotlight series and tipped for great adventures in the coming year. Born in South-East London, Rainy Milo started singing with local musicians and arts collectives at the age of 14, eventually coming across a beat producer BLCK RSSN. After various offers from record labels were declined because she felt it was too soon, work was started on Limey, her debut EP. At the centre of it all her material is Milo’s startling voice, with creaks and cracks with emotion – golden ticket combination: a stunning voice and beats that form the perfect soundtrack for cold winter nights.
Night Works is also known as Gabriel Stebbing. Previously Metronomy’s bass player, his songs create an after-hours vision of the city. Produced by long-time collaborators and friends Joseph Mount (Metronomy), Ash Workman (Klaxons) and Gabriel himself, his debut longplayer is out on 4th March. From the same school of thought as Kindness and Connan Mockasin, this set promises to be full of genre defying surprises.

Ghostpoet (DJ Set):
Ghostpoet is set to release his second album in May this year – the follow up to the Mercury Music Prize nominated, and hugely supported ‘Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam’. We get some insight into his musical DNA when he takes to the decks to drop his beat laden selection at Sub-Sonic Live.
