Beardur is a bass music and electronic producer from Cape Town who is a member of Semel’s Unite who describe themselves as “The mechanics of bass music, the culmination of creative thinking, the epitome of group think, the ending of nothing, the beginning of something”.
The EP he produced in the Studios takes the future-fantastic sounds of Hyperdub-esque footwork and ghetto-tek, and subtly incorporates it with sonic ideas that explore the Cape’s traditional history particular in regards to the Khoisan. Its far from ethnomusicology or distinct cultural observations such as those of artists such as Pops Mohammed, but it something that could only come out of Cape Town.”
