''Hung’s littering of 8-bit grace notes is ultimately refreshing, and an apt ode to his work as one half of F Buttons….
the complexities and wide sonic scape don’t sound excessive or sloppily piled on top of one another. They’re seamless, intricate, and intoxicating. Then, the imperfect cadence fades and stutters into oblivion, leaving the listener aching for more. ‘’ Pitchfork 7.2
Andrew Hung with Benjamin John Power formed F Buttons when they met at art school in Bristol 2004. Hung was influenced by Aphex Twin and Power by Mogwai and together they created a unique sound using a variety of instruments including Casiotone keyboards and children's toys such as a Fisher Price karaoke machine. Their first album ‘Tarot Sport’ achieved rave reviews from Pitchfork, The NME, The Observer, The Times, Time Out, Mojo, Uncut, Kerrang, The Wire, Drowned in Sound and they quickly became the indie darlings of the music media and pioneers of the new up surge in DIY electronic ‘New Noise’ bands. ‘Surf Solar’ and ‘Olympians’ featured in the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics.
A new track recorded with legendary electronic musician Jean-Michel Jarre entitled "Immortals" was released on the Jarre album Electronica 1: The Time Machine on October 16th 2015.The release of the second album ‘Slow Focus’ saw Hung step up into production - a direction that he was keen to take. The ‘Rave Cave’ EPs are Hung’s first foray into solo work, the concept being a much more paired down sound.
Hung’s solo work has led him to larger projects, he recently scored ‘The Greasy Strangler’ which premiered to rave reviews at Sundance Film Festival this year, ' a deliriously fun lo-fi score by Andrew Hung of Fuck Buttons’ Sundance
Don’t miss the chance to witness one of the most exciting electronic artists around with DJ sets from Jane Blondel and game boy VJ set by Mike Mystery, this is going to be an sonic and visual overload!
