Create NSW x Powerhouse x Astral People
The Generations Fellowship connects artists with established industry experts and mentors to pass on intergenerational knowledge and create pathways in the music industry. While in residency at Powerhouse from April to September 2023, 700 Feel produced and released an EP along with three music videos.
Electronic musicians Jonny Hawkins and Juan Villamor bonded at high school through mutual appreciation of genres deeply rooted in the places and communities which birthed them: Kingston's dub, Bristol's trip hop, Chicago's footwork and London's evolutions of New York's Garage.
As 700 Feel they aim to ground their productions very firmly in their Eora/Sydney roots. So while their visceral productions are reminiscent of Mount Kimbie’s moody textures, Oneohtrix Point Never’s glistening movements and the new-age experimentalism of Dean Blunt, they're most inspired by the surroundings, people and stories of the city's west, energised by community and collectivism.
The Generations Fellowship connects artists with established industry experts and mentors to pass on intergenerational knowledge and create pathways in the music industry. Established in 2020, this is a partnership between Create NSW, Powerhouse and Australian music management and touring company, Astral People.
Valued at $100,000, the Fellowship supports three early career solo artists or groups to carry out six months of professional development. Each Fellow is provided with $25,000 in financial support, and in-kind support in the form of studio space at Powerhouse Ultimo or Powerhouse Castle Hill, with industry mentoring and networking facilitated by Astral People throughout each residency.
