Huerco S. (Brian Leeds) is a Kansas native now based in Brooklyn, NY. As an artist, producer and DJ, Huerco S. has released his music through labels such as Future Times, Opal Tapes, Software and Proibito. It will be Huerco S’ first live tour in Europe when arriving at PHONO. We are excited.
Strongly marking himself on the scene for experimenting lo-fi house music, with the debut album in 2013 album, “Colonial Patterns”, Huerco S. fast became a one-to-watch artist. With the follow up album named, “For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have)”, released this June, Huerco S. unexpectedly surprised his followers with an impressive ambient record.
As is often the case with the ambient genres, time flies and you are carried away by the soothing undulations, to which you cannot help but float into deep and dreamlike thoughts. Huerco S.’ compositions are sometimes as beautiful waves rolling towards the shore line or the very fabric of imagination, then suddenly the mood will change and you will be thrown into the depths of the unknown. This artist’s music is a rich and multilayered collage of light synths, percussive pulses and muffled bass.
Come join us at PHONO festival, when Huerco S. will send us all on an atmospheric journey. In the mean time, be sure to check out FACT’s interview with the artist or read the great reviews from Resident Advisor, Pitchfork and The Quietus. Find Huerco S. on Spotify here.
