This September, the Oz Music Hustlers are proud to present the groundbreaking Cecil Turbine, Hugo Lee and Lijuka in our very first Hustler Showcase Gig! Our Showcase series is designed to bring artists with common themes into conversations with each other and the wider Melbourne scene, and this month, it’s all about sprawling, cinematic instrumental ambient electro-jazz.
In recent years, an undercurrent among Melbourne musicians has been gathering momentum towards a majestic, evocative new instrumental sound full of rich atmospheric loops and intricate textures. Cecil Turbine, Hugo Lee and the all-female post-jazz trio Lijuka are three of the movement’s most dynamic pioneers, all defined equally by formidable instrumental prowess and their ground-breaking use of loops and electronic effects. Hustler Showcase #1 is your chance to hear these trailblazers present this powerful new sound in the same room together for the very first time.
