Thrupence is an electronic music producer, creative director, illustrator and designer. Jack Vanzet from Melbourne, has been steadily crafting his skills & gaining recognition worldwide for his visual and musical output, more recently with his signing to Sydney's Future Classic label in 2014.
Thrupence is currently polishing off his debut LP "Ideas of Aesthetics" due out on Future Classic on 21st of April, which he describes as "a collection of songs made over the last 6 years - some songs date back to 2011, others were finished in the last six months. It's become a diary of places I've lived and people I've met over this time" .
Listen to Thrupence's contribution to our Mr Simple Sounds series which can be streamed/downloaded below. A solid & eclectic mix which we are stoked to include in the series.
Jack has released several EP's since 2010 including his popular Voyages EP while working as a Graphic Designer for clients such as Sony, Tumblr, EMI & fellow musicians Vance Joy & Chet Faker.
His paintings are easily recognizable with vibrant, thick brushstrokes and his music equally as colourful, a refined downtempo, organic approach to the beats/electronica sound. His recent single "Rinse Repeat" is a perfect composition of glockenspiels, side-chained leads, reverb soaked LFO synth-work & transposed drum patterns vaguely reminiscent of artist such as Mike Slott or what you would expect to hear come out of the Ghostly International label.
Jack prefers not to disclose too much about his artistic process so we have featured some of his most recent body of work entitled "Abstract" below.
