The Operatives & Veer East Presents: Rochelle Jordan
The Operatives and Veer East team up to present Rochelle Jordan for her debut Eora/Sydney show.
Without experimentation, innovation is impossible. For Rochelle Jordan, this desire for sonic expansion has been long embedded into her fusion of futuristic and ancestrally soulful R&B. To listen to a ROJO song is to absorb a phosphorescent but subtle blend of sampledelic 90s pop, vintage UK house and garage, 31st century electronic bangers, airy late night ballads, and progressive hip-hop. Rochelle Jordan's latest album, 'Play with the Changes' (on TOKIMONSTA's Young Art imprint), is both personal evolution and a boundary pushing experiment, which is a culmination of all the Toronto-based artists' past work and collaborations. Such collaborations include the likes of Childish Gambino, Machinedrum, Jacques Greene, and J-E-T-S.
On March 16th, come through and witness this seminal member of North America's underground music scene - one who Pitchfork has named an essential name in the post-Drake Toronto landscape.
Supported by multi-hyphenate DJ, producer, radio host and Yuggera woman, dameeeela. + Eora residents Pea Oh Ma and Yemi Sul.
