Renaissance Man has always been one of those artists that I wish I knew more about. The Finnish duo blew onto the scene in 2009 when their Debut Spraycan was released on Switch's Dubsided label. Before this however, they had already begun the house revolution in Finland which would soon sweep the world.
Since then they've released EPs on Made To Play and Sound Pellegrino, the title track 'What is Guru' becoming one of the underground hits of the year. We were lucky enough to have them gracing the stages at the electronic mess of a festival that was stereosonic, and now we are lucky enough to be able to welcome them back to Sydney to headline the Generic Collective's first birthday party at the Civic Underground on Friday the 11th of June.
For those of you who don't known, Generic Collective are the new breed of legit party goers and throwers in Sydney. With nights popping up dime a dozen every week in amongst the Sydney night life, it's testament to these lads skill and dedication that they've been able to survive a year. To date they've thrown some amazing parties at venues from the Burdekin (or is it the Viper Room?) to Phoenix Bar and there's no doubt the crowning jewel in their armour will be there first birthday at the Civic which has fast become the most legit venue in Sydney thanks in no small part to other Sydney favourites Future Classic. If you know what's up you'll be there.
To get you in the zone, here's some of Renaissance Man's latest work, including some amazing remixes of Solo and the Crookers (who are on the fast track to musical redemption after their Ministry of Sound debacle.. still don't like them though).
