Perth, Western Australia, one of the world’s most isolated capital cities and home to an immense wellspring of musical and artistic talent to beatify this earth. An ever increasing number of artists that have sprouted from the culturally thirsty Perth scene, with its dedication to both creation and ingenuity, have gone on to stamp their presence on the world stage.
Amongst this seclusion of artistic talent emerges Shaun Pickett and Louis Frere-Harvey, whom combined to form the production and performance powerhouse; COMMAND Q. Both have taken a sip from the very same well that their artistic super human predecessors have also done; thus fuelling their drive for the musical art form.
COMMAND Q “emerging from the shadows,” or “set to take the music industry by storm,” speaks no justice to what the duo has invested in a relentless focus on altering the way that electronic dance music is performed. With Shaun and Louis’ wealth of experience with, and extensive training in, musical performance; they combine on stage in what is touted as being a truly captivating show. Their high energy and unique live show combines numerous percussion and vocal elements, which serve to draw the crowd into seething mass of people.
2015 ended on a massive high for the boys, after their track D1LL1GAF was played by DIPLO at every capital city within Australia during the Stereosonic tour. Not to mention the unprecedented start to 2016, which saw united forces Dillion Francis and Flosstradamus AKA DILLSTRADAMUS opening their set on HOLY SHIP 2016 with “D1LL1GAF.” On top of this, Jack Ü played D1LL1GAF during their Lollalooza Brazil set, which is viewable HERE. Other support included RL GRIME, Alison Wonderland, TWRK, Party Favour + many more.
2016 has seen a number of releases for COMMAND Q. Starting the year out with D1LL1GAF and its sibling D1LL1GAF VIP, via DIPLO’s MAD DECENT empire and new sub-label GOOD ENUFF. July 4th saw the independent, fitting for the date, release of the 6 track We Are Animals EP, which has garnered large scale support from artist peers, media and fans alike. There’s no slowing down though; having
completed an extensive schedule of performances, from tour support for ShockOne’s Australian shows to COMMAND Q’s own headline tour around Australia and NZ, the duo are now busy working on a number of exciting future releases.
All that we ask is that your hands remain inside at all times and to remember your asthma inhaler. COMMAND Q are not taking you on a ride, but in fact an odyssey of BASS with diabolical concern to one’s own ears; as COMMAND Q wham their skill set of talent into your lives.
⌘Q – works every time.
