Maribou State

North American tour dates for Maribou State and more!

Just this past June, Maribou State released their newest piece of work the full length, Portraits on Counter Records. However, there has been nothing but action for this fantastically creative electronic musician. After touring the new album this summer, a couple of weeks ago it was announced that Maribou State would be joining BBC Radio 1 Residency, extremely exciting news for them.

Only yesterday, they announced North American tour dates:

AND..there’s more. Right now, you can enjoy a mixtape hand crafted by THUMP and Maribou State. Chris Davids and Liam Ivory had this to say about the mixtape titled “Sound of Eight Cities“:

“Ahead of our DJ tour to the US, we decided to create a mix that’s composed of music which originates from all the places we are visiting, as well as a couple of artists that are now residing in those cities! We’ve also peppered the mix with field recordings from our recent travels across the pond.”

Finally, you can now PRE-ORDER Portraits Remix 12″ which features remixes by Breaker Breaker, Purp & Soul and others. To remind you of what’s in store on this remix edition, have a listen to the track I posted last week:

MARIBOU STATE JOINS BBC RADIO 1 RESIDENCY!

The first show of the season aired yesterday (Thursday, September 10th) and will be continuing monthly from here on out. Maribou State says about joining the team:

“Joining the BBC Radio 1 Residency feels like a huge privilege to us. We’re excited to share our personal music tastes with everyone, sitting alongside some incredible music talents.”

Maribou State is following in the footsteps of the likes of Flying Lotus, James Blake and others and this exciting news came after a busy summer of touring the newest record, Portraits, and preceding a fall European tour. North American tour dates will soon follow! And there’s more! In celebration of joining BBC Radio 1 Residency, a remix of the track “Midas” done by Glenn Astro (Tartelet/Money $ex). Listen below:

Special Feature: Episode 292 of The Justin Wayne Show

I had the absolute pleasure of sharing some of my favorite music on The Justin Wayne Show this past Monday, June 29th. The show streams live online every Monday from 1-3pm Mountain Standard Time and is available in Podcast form by the Wednesday after. The Justin Wayne Show is the ultimate supporter of independent musicians and is run by Justin Wayne in Bozeman, MT and Claire Rozario in London who sift through tons of artists’ submissions every week. It’s “music’s independent spirit.”

Not only did I get to share some of my current favorite music, I also developed a taste for many of the artists they shared on the show that day!

The link below will take you to the entire episode:

A Friday Treat! New track, “The Clown”, by Maribou State.

Good luck trying to sit still to this song. I’m listening to it right now while I’m typing and the uncontrollable bouncing of my feet and slight sway in my upper body is making it hard to type. Maribou State is Chris Davids and Liam Ivory who started their musical journey at university in Leeds in England. Now a well reputed music-making duo, Maribou is known for their ability to weave together soulful sounds, electronic beats and morphed vocals. Their newest album, ‘Portraits’, is due out this June 2nd.

Check out the latest release, “The Clown (ft Pedestrian)”:
