Sunday 11 May 2014. Birthdays, Dalston. Be There.

Blissful. Expansive. These are just some of the words that have been used to describe the work of Teebs. A signature member of the collective surrounding Brainfeeder, an iconoclastic electronic label stationed in L.A. As per the habits of its exploratory founder Flying Lotus, it’s big into refractions of beats and bass. Teebs, for his part, steers toward luxurious sadness and wistful contemplation, with a sense of nostalgia in the mix.

“Teebs’ music sounds like an island vacation. The way Avatar looks.”- Flying Lotus

In Spanish, the word estar means “to be”, but there’s more to it than that. More specifically, estar refers to where someone is at – physically or mentally – at a specific moment. Simply put, there’s nothing permanent about it, which is a big reason why E s t a r a is the perfect title for the second full-length album from the  Los Angeles-based producer Teebs.

His musical knowledge is personal, diverse and his status as a uniquely talented UK producer has been on the up and up, Paul White has been winning accolades from artists across the board including Diplo, Mary Anne Hobbs, and Gilles Peterson.  His EP ‘Watch The Ants’, sees him joined by the motley crew of Trim, Sean Price, Homeboy Sandman and rap superstar-in-waiting Danny Brown, who recruited Paul to produce nearly half his forthcoming album ‘Old’ and cited him as “my fav producer to work with”.

After receiving raving album reviews, Teebs is is London for one night only to celebrate brand new music in a small Dalston basement. Tickets are guaranteed to sell out quick. Come show some love…
