New signing… ABE
We have a new signing to the Itchy Pig books. Abe.
We have had our eyes on this trio for some time and there is no doubt as to why. Hailing from our home turf of Sheffield Abe (brother Tom and Oli alongside long standing friend Matt) are that something special that pop up into the scene every now and again.
Their music is hard to describe that is for certain however this is one of the things we love about them. Sample heavy and hardware collectors, they are a true live act and between them put on a performance that is utterly mesmerising. Their recorded material is ultimately electronic based with vocals from Matt that give it somewhat a melancholy feel from what could be the 80s. Their overall sound is somewhat timeless and they are certainly one of a kind.
We liked them since we heard them earlier on in the year and have finally secured them to a deal which we are simply over the moon about. They are another great addition to the Itchy team and will add great diversity to our artist roster and agency offerings. Expect a full album late 2013 with numerous remixes on on both Itchy Pig and other great labels that will undoubtedly put Abe in the forefront of electronic music.
Their début EP can be downloaded for free and is a great journey and showcase on what to expect of things to come. We have also begun scheduling in some shows for Abe and full details will follow.
This has certainly made our day.
