Habitat : Emerson Todd (Sat 16/02)

Habitat presents Emerson Todd

Habitat are goin’ deep with visit from Berlin based superstar Emerson Todd.

Since beginning his musical journey from New Zealand to Australia, London and now Berlin, Emerson has graced most of the ‘it’ labels in the underground scene… from Sven Vath’s Cocoo &, Booka Shade’s Get Physical to Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records; a diverse selection of labels for an artists whose inspirations and sets come from an equally diverse background
After his debut single ‘Up For the One’, was supported heavily by the likes of Derrick May, Emerson was soon snapped up by Universal Music who offered his own label to run and release on, subsequently produced two full-length albums. During this time he also produced the complete movie score for UK Company Film Four (of ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ fame) for the movie ‘Stickmen’. His talents as an audio engineer went on to become very sought after, engineering some of the country’s most well known acts including The Sleepy Jackson, Teenager, Pnau, and festival headliners, The Presets.

But it was with the release of the, bass heavy Rumplestiltskin that really put Emerson back in the spotlight. Big, tight and bouncy, it was instantly picked up by Claude VonStroke for Dirtybird. With demand for his talents growing, Emerson moved to London. This almost instantly paid off, as just a couple of months after, his first EP for Get Physical was signed. Now based in Berlin Emerson has found his grounding and established himself as a forward thinking producer and dj. His releases are wide-ranging and always innovative as are his Dj sets.

Don’t miss the return to Australia of a true musical talent for one very special show at Geisha on Saturday 23 Feb. Supported by Flex, Atif Khan, Saul Bliss and Richard Lee.
