We are excited to be bringing CDR to Bristol for the first time since 2009, where we will be joined by the multi-faceted producer, DJ and promoter Bruce to chat about his music production. Bruce has been a fundamental force in the continuing output of the pioneering label collective Hessle Audio since his 2014 debut. Since its inception, Bruce has been also a close affiliate of the Timedance label, where he’s continued to expand his sound, along with Livity Sound and Hemlock.
Bruce’s hyperactive and surreal humour allows him to recreate the process of converting experimental abstraction into exhilarating energy when he’s performing as a DJ. He further explores his own marriage of heartfelt music and daft humour via his monthly Noods Radio show, ‘Get Loose! With Bruce,’ coyly lassoing together various sonic phenomena that inspire his music.
He has recently dipped his toes into the world of promotion, putting on his own ‘Get Loose’ parties at Bristol infamous ‘Dare to Club’ venue, with past guests such as Laksa, Peach and Ossia (to name just a few). Bruce’s nights aim to bring ‘together all the best things about soundsystem/club culture in a big loop of love to create maximum positive vibes for the dancers and all those involved’ and he therefore enforces a 50/50 gender split to ensure a safe and inclusive dance floor at his events.
As is custom at CDR events, we will be running our open CDR session before and after the talk. If you have any musical works in progress that you want to hear played through a club sound system, upload them via the link below or bring them along on a USB.
