More info on Staunch:
Staunch was formed in 2011 by Shadow FX’s James Hayes and Algernon Renton (Positive Thought, Mustard Tiger), the project was aptly named STAUNCH; a bass heavy, funk laden mid-tempo breaks/ glitch hop project. Both artists stemming from progressive trance backgrounds and influenced by the Australian outdoor music scene’s shift toward glitch, Staunch have been forging a fresh, intricate and unique style.
Since they released their self titled EP in 2011 through Hopskotch Records, Staunch have been defining their place in the Glitch hop scene. Following the recent and very successful release with Adapted Records, the “Thurstin’ Beaver” EP has shot straight up the Beatport charts into the Top 10 overall sellers next to the big name electronic acts such as Far Too Loud, Daft Punk and Knife Party.
Having played at all Australia’s major festivals (Rainbow Serpent, Eclipse Festival, Maitreya, Bushweek etc) alongside icons such as Opiuo, Spoonbill and Tipper, and set to play Burning Man and Symbiosis during their debut USA tour later this year.
Based in Melbourne, STAUNCH are fast becoming a household name amongst the global glitch hop scene.
