Great Man Hiboo is a musician / producer / DJ, with a distinctive personality. On February 7, 2020, Great Man Hiboo released his first EP that he composed and produced. And will unveil his live show, accompanied by MC Billa Camp and musician Shane Jonas, both from Chicago. Billa Camp and Great Man Hiboo first collaborated through computer screens. In Chicago, Billa recorded voices for the title “Western life” of Great Man Hiboo and he shot some clips for the video. Mutual trust and understanding between the the two artists sparkled in this long-distance working relationship. In June 2018, Great Man Hiboo flew to Chicago to record the 4-track EP. Sound mixing is directed by English producer Steve Osborne (New Order / Placebo / Moby / U2). Between February and June 2019, he revealed on his Youtube channel three videos totalising more than 130,000 views. But no one has ever seen the face of Great Man Hiboo. Not only because he plays with a mask on stage. Not only because Great Man Hiboo is a cartoon character in his videos. Half-man, half owl, Great Man Hiboo is a mutant character with a real existence on social networks. In real life, Great Man Hiboo is a virtual character. He is the avatar created by the artist Olli (Olli & the Bollywood Orchestra) for his electronic music projects. And on stage? At the crossroads between music, live performance, video and original scenography, every appearance of Great Man Hiboo lives up to the mysteries of the character.
Opposites do more than attract. Their fusion generates friction and sparks energy. Representing opposing sides of the spectrum, Kristin Sanchez [DJ, producer, engineer] and Desereé Fawn Zimmerman [drums, guitar, vocals] comprise one dynamic and diverse whole in Dance Loud. The Chicago duo co-mingles Fawn’s live instrumentation steeped in classical training with Sanchez’s electronic production and DJ wizardry. Acclaimed by Chicago Tribune and sharpened into a live force via countless shows since their 2008 formation, the pair push the full potential of this union on their 2020 independent full-length debut, The Moment.
