And if you needed convincing of his talent here is a track he created with an ipad beatmaker app, piano and ipod headphone mic (set to some great old film footage).

BATHS (ANTICON/USA) NEW ZEALAND TOUR

After suffering serious stomach complications back in 2011 forcing us to cancel his debut show we are pleased to announce Baths will be returning to New Zealand to play two shows in Auckland and Wellington this November!

Wednesday 14th November @ Whammy Bar in Auckland
Thursday 15th November @ San Francisco Bath House in Wellington
With special guest: Black City Lights

An exercise in stargazing synthetics, stumbling rhythmic thuds, incidental found sound, and ghostly falsetto voice, Baths is the musical project of American electronic musician Will Wiesenfeld.

A key member of the new wave of Anticon Record's artists, Baths filters rugged MPC hip-hop production techniques through a chillwave filter. Baths musical oeuvre connects him with both contemporary sound surfers Toro Y Moi and Washed Out, and the modern international bass archipelago beat movement which has given us Flying Lotus, Hype Williams, Samiyam and their ilk.

Described by The Guardian's Paul Lester as like, "J Dilla playing around with the Pavement and Prince catalogues," a Baths performance is a decadent sonic treat. In line with this, his debut album Cerulean got the coveted Pitchfork.com co-sign with an honorable mention on the 2010 Album of the Year list, and more recent sophomore release Pop Music / False B-Sides is also headed for equal acclaim.

Tickets are available from www.undertheradar.co.nz, Slow Boat Records or Rough Peel Music in Wellington and Real Groovy in Auckland.
