From www.ticketfly.com: You wouldn’t think that growing up in the Swiss Alps in the 90′s would be the best place to be exposed to some of New York’s best underground hip hop. However anglo-swiss producer Laurent Clerc, AKA Little People, argues he couldn’t have been in a better place. An old Mac and a stack of old LPs were mere catalysts for Laurent to try and emulate the sounds from across the pond. A subsequent move to the UK introduced electronica to his broadening taste and influenced his own sound. Following a disheartening stint doing some production work for a Paris based hip hop label convinced Laurent that he should be doing things on his own terms. A self-released EP led to being picked up by Illicit Recordings in London – through which “Mickey Mouse Operation” was eventually released. Little People’s sound is part beats, bleeps, and snippets of other people’s music. Stemming from hip hop, it effortlessly combines warm synths, intricate melodies, and string arrangements.
On Thursday, June 6, Little People will bring his musical talents to the Echo in Los Angeles. Expect to hear the top power tracks such as “Basique” and “Start Shootin” off the album ‘Mickey Mouse Operation’. Furthermore, the track “Moon‘” should make its way into the setlist. The track has over 13.4 million plays on Spotify. Joining Little People will be Arms And Sleepers, and Newman Wolf.
The concert takes place at the Echo on Thursday, June 6 and is presented by our friends at Spaceland Presents. 8:30 PM. Tickets are $12 advance / $15 day-of-show. Purchase them by clicking HERE. Feelin’ lucky? Try your luck by entering our contest below:
