Hugo Race, ex- Bad Seed and Wreckery founder, composer, producer and author returns with a new album from his “Fatalists” project. Never one to sit still, Race, follows his recent excursions into world electronica (Dirtmusic’s ‘Bu Bir Ruya’ and ‘Gemini 4’), 21st century blues (‘John Lee Hooker’s World Today’) with a selection of modern folk songs on his latest album, “Taken by a Dream”.

The album is a cinematic tapestry of complex emotional states illuminated by mercurial moments of dazzling light and grace. Recorded in Sicily, Taken by The Dream is an album with a dark, nocturnal mood, characterised by pieces where the melodies, always tinged with a certain melancholic fatalism, float in textural and musical scores, crossing hypnotic rhythms with guitars of all kinds, sounds in reverse, organ, piano, keyboards and violins.

Following a hot, intense 22-date European tour with his Italian band Fatalists, Hugo is back in Australia with his new Fatalists album "Taken By The Dream" (Glitterhouse Records). Performing with stripped back acoustic/electronica, special guest Henry Hugo.
