Debut OTO show - and rare London outing - for Inga Copeland, formerly one half of Hype Williams duo. Following the release of her solo album “Because I’m Worth It” last year, Copeland will perform a live set featuring recordings from her upcoming CD - “RELAXIN’ with Lolina”.
“[Copeland's] strength is in taking bits and pieces — mixing machine-made grooves with her soft, imperfect vocals — that build a bigger picture, forming her own messy musical language which needs no translation to impart its power.” – Dummy Magazine
"Inga Copeland is best known for her tenure as half of oblique experimental duo Hype Williams. Working alongside Dean Blunt, her time with the (ostensibly defunct) group saw her turn out numerous hypnagogic pop set-texts (Untitled, Black Is Beautiful) and cheeky bootleg records (Do Roids And Kill E’Rything) – and that’s without mentioning their mondo weirdo live shows.
As a solo agent, Copeland’s released on Rush Hour’s ace No ‘Label’ sister imprint, put out the Don’t Look Back, That’s Not Where You’re Going 12″, impressed with the beguiling Higher Powersmixtape and, in collaboration with John T. Gast, landed one of our favourite releases of 2013
The singer and producer recently released new album Because I’m Worth It. The record will run to eight tracks; one, ‘Advice To Young Girls’, is a co-production with Actress." – FACT
