After special performances by Howling & Âme at their July event, Culprit & Prototype continue the Live show theme by inviting another hugely intriguing artist - David August. A Hamburg-based producer and live act, August is one of a rare breed in dance music, who combine genuine and classically-honed musical skill with mastery of analogue machinery. Throw in a dash of mystique and charisma and you have a young man on a fast track to credible stardom.
David August's origins lie within his hometown's most well-known imprint, Diynamic. Taken under the wing by the label's leader Solomun while still a precocious teenager, David August was given a chance to develop his signature style over the past 5 years. This search culminated in David's debut concept album "Times" in 2013. Its musicality had tremendous depth and showed flair for melody and rich textures. August's big arrival was confirmed with the release of the "Epikur" EP for the Innervisions label early last year.
Over the last few years David has developed a memorable live set, which he now plays exclusively, having left DJing behind. A gifted pianist, he combines real improvisation with a fierce understanding of dancefloor dynamics. After the impressive Boiler Room and RA Sessions performances, the demand for David's live show is at fever pitch. He is now setting off on his first world-wide tour, making his first ever stop in Los Angeles with us, on August 28th.
Culprit's hosts and residents, Droog, gather back in LA after the summer of travels that have taken in various parts of Europe and Asia. Their DJ sets will bookend David August's headline Live set.
