Cluster: New Music + Integrated Arts Festival is proud to debut eclectic MC and drummer duo, facecrime.

A new project by Winnipeg-based MC/drummer/lyricist Brendan Grey and jazz drummer Kevin Waters from the 2020 Polaris-Prize nominated hip-hop ensemble, Super Duty Tough Work, facecrime presents a 25 minute concert of music incorporating hip-hop lyricism, sound design, and sample-based electronic drumming paired with analog breakbeats. Their avant-garde aesthetics and technically-refined delivery births a body of work inspired by the rich history of golden era hip-hop, jazz, UK grime, drum & bass and contemporary electronica, exploring the interconnectivity between these influences as a derivative and extension of Black American protest music.

Cluster would like to acknowledge the gracious support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Manitoba Arts Council, SOCAN Foundation, FACTOR Canada and Manitoba Music in presenting this concert.
