Event Details

with GENEVA JACUZZI, Harriet Brown, plus DJ Aaron Axelsen (popscene)
California native Ramona Gonzalez first began her transcendent minimalist dance-pop escapades in the privacy of her own home in Los Angeles. With the aid of her multitrack cassette recorder and whatever keyboards, drum machines, and other instruments that were available to her, she very quickly developed her own unique sound and began performing live in the L.A. area under the moniker Nite Jewel.Later teaming up with Cole M. Greif-Neill (formerly of Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti), the Nite Jewel act became four piece live act, touring alongside the likes of Little Dragon, DaM FunK, and James Blake. The Nite Jewel sound has been likened to that of a warped, lo-fi version of Late-80s Freestyle Electro sensation Debbie Deb and has also found appeal among not just the indie rock & experimental crowd but also among avid listeners of hip hop, funk, disco, & soul. While very fond of these aforementioned genres and artists, Nite Jewel gathers much of her inspiration from the likes of L.A. Free Music Societys experimentalist Tom Recchion, obscure UK new age electro-acoustic duo Woo, and the sublime ambient electronic music of groups like Germanys Cluster and Italys Sensations Fix. Nite Jewel never hesitates, however, to cite 90s R&B pop groups such as TLC & SWV as influences who left an indelible mark on her music sensibilities as a teenager.Over the past few years, LA s Nite Jewel has honed its pop-funk craft across releases from Italians Do It Better, Mexican Summer and LAs own Gloriette Records. In that time, her airy but often distant voice has found new gravitas and charisma. Meanwhile, the synth lines have gotten more agile and the bass pops tighter and tighter. The stuttered 80s synth R&B melodies unfold into one another here in ways both giddy and deceivingly nonchalant. This maturation and evolution will all come to a head in early 2012 when Secretly Canadian will release Nite Jewels proper full-length follow up to her brilliant 2008 LP, Good Evening.
