27/3/09 CONVEXTION live (Downlow, Frustrated Funk - USA), Barry Donovan (Lunar Disco), Louis Skully

Hi everyone,

We welcome a very special guest to Test on Friday, March 27th as
revered US producer Convextion makes his Irish debut.

Convextion, real name Gerard Hanson, hails from Dallas, Texas, but his
intricately woven electro and techno sounds like it came from Detroit
than the good ole southern state, with some Basic Channel/Chain
Reaction influences thrown in for good measure.

Working as Convextion or ERP, Hanson has been releasing music since
1995, but has put out a small but inspired body of work for Matrix,
Down Low, AW and Frustrated Funk.

The enigmatic producer's back catalogue includes his 2006 debut album,
'Convextion', a benchmark techno release - and his recent ERP remixes
of Hardfloor even lent the German acid nutters a sense of gravitas.

An infrequent visitor to Europe, this booking has been a long time
coming and has involved more detailed negotiations than the pension
levy talks, but we're excited and delighted to be host Convextion's
first live show in Ireland. We hope you enjoy the show as much as we

Support comes from the interstellar robot forces of Lunar disko's Barry Donovan and Dublin bus disko's Louis Scully.
