April Fool’s Day (April 1) l will see B-Side in Truro host perhaps its most excitingly eclectic line up yet when rock meets dance with a live headline slot from the internationally renowned DJ Hyper and his live band known simply as HYPER, a new project from ex Rootjoose/Rairbirds man Rob Elton with The Raise and North Cornwall rockers The Sum Of. As a hugely talented producer, remixer, DJ, label boss and composer Hyper has excelled in building a loyal and global fan base as well as commanding huge respect from his peers. Having shot into the consciousness of almost every dance head and aficionado ten years ago with the eponymous Y3K compilation series, he has since released two critically acclaimed albums, remixed everyone from Foals to Futureheads, Pink to Paul Van Dyk and released some of the biggest compilation series’ over the last decade. After taking a break to work on film/TV syncs and music scores, where his tracks have featured in major films and TV series including CSI, Ugly Betty and Borat to name a few, he is ready for the next stage of the HYPER narrative to unfold. The live band features the stunning vocals of front woman Axe together with Prodigy & Pitchshifter man Jim Davies (guitar+ vox)and Hyper (keys, decks, vocals) and are preparing to hit the road with all the force of a sonic juggernaut as they currently put the final touches to their brand new live show. Having already wowed nearly every major festival across the world including Glastonbury, Roskilde and Fuji Rock to name but a few this is a rare chance to see them in Cornwall. Main support on the night comes from The Raise; a new Cornish Riff Rock Band, fronted by Rob Elton (formerly of Rootjoose). It’s been ten years since the demise of Rootjoose but the pulse of the popular Cornish outfit still beats strong in the hands of Rob Elton and his new band The Raise. With an opening set from the equally rocking north Cornwall foursome The Sum Of This who wowed Truro audience last year when they tore up the basement of the Wig & Pen, free entry and loads of drinks promotions this is a gig that everyone should have in their diaries!
