The All Seeing Hand

About The All Seeing Hand:

A Turntable/Drum/Throat Trio.

The All Seeing Hand recognises progress.
The All Seeing Hand facilitates progress.
The All Seeing Hand is progress.
Extraction is progress.
Conversion is progress.
The All Seeing Hand converts.

The All Seeing Hand are collaborators in conversion. Alphabethead provides a dense weaved fabric of sounds, culled through filters and needles. He has created the subliminal future from the carcasses of redundant songs. Jonny Marks breathes your spent breath and mumbled words, and exhales harmonically rich vocals; while you struggle to decipher his language your synapses are firing new paths. B Michael Knight hears your heart and beats it irregular. While your chest collapses with pounding toms, your brain pulsates with frantic snares.

The All Seeing Hand is comprised of Alphabethead (masterful Turntablist gestated in the Hip Hop battle scene before branching into every direction at once, working everything from orchestral gamelan and Inuit folk music to post-punk and electronica into his compositions) Jonny Marks on vocals (a true sonic explorer, traditionally-trained Mongolian throat-singer and high-energy front-person) and Benjamin Knight on drums (trained in the energy of DIY punk and hardcore, tightly binding the whole sound together with drumming that is equal parts driving and frantic).

Ghetto Sunrise

About Ghetto Sunrise:

Ghetto Sunrise have been hailed as the New Face of New Zealand Drum and Bass, bringing you a fine fusion of drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep and live electronica.

Their 2014-released album sees the band depart from the roots-inspired electronica of their debut EP, and move into a hard and heavy realm to deliver an album with energetic live drum and bass sound.

“Ghetto Sunrise is comprised of heavy drum and bass fanatics and we felt that it was time to return to our roots and release something with a harder edge, whilst still maintaining the characteristic dynamics our fans love us for,” says Joel.

Founded in 2013, band members are:

Joel C Blood – Guitars, Vocals, Synths, Programming
Josh Burke – Guitars, BV’s
“B-sey” – Bass, Synths

The band welcomes new guest member Emma Petera, who sings lead vocals on ‘Lost and Higher’ on their 2014 album.
