HEADLINE: NITE JEWEL
Los Angeles electro-R&B luminary Ramona Gonzalez — aka Nite Jewel — returns to Australia as a duo, hot on the heels of her critically acclaimed new album Real High. Nite Jewel has released a B-sides collection, Real Low, the 2016 album Liquid Cool, a limited edition 12” for Italians Do It Better, and two collaborative EPs (one with Bay Area rapper/producer Droop-E as AMTHST). Nite Jewel has also collaborated with Dam-Funk, Omar-S, Julia Holter, Sean Nicholas Savage, Samantha Urbani, Zoë Kravitz and many others. Her latest collaboration with Dam-Funk (as Nite Funk) was named Best New Music on Pitchfork. With Real High, Ramona Gonzalez reflects the increasing challenges of hyper-modern society, in particular with respect to selfhood. Recorded over the course of four years in Los Angeles with the help of Cole M.G.N., these songs of love and nostalgia range from expansive balladry to dance-floor hits.
