The Operatives collective have announced the full details for TEEBS 2014 Australia and New Zealand in which DJ, Visual Artist, Skater and Trash Collector TEEBS, aka Mtendere Mandowa, will showcase his latest LP ‘ESTARA’ and its accompanying art show ‘ANTE VOS’ (a collection of intricate paintings on repurposed record sleeves).

Part of the Brainfeeder family (Samiyam, Thundercat, The Underachievers) and a resident DJ at LA’s Dublab, TEEBS‘ unique music has seen him co-found art and music collective My Hollow Drum, team up with Daedelus and Jeremiah Jae and collaborate with Prefuse 73 on last years’ intriguing release ‘Sons of Morning’.

Support will come from the loyal Operative Agents and some of the finest emerging producers from across Australia.

The showcase begins in Melbourne on August 1st, stopping in Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney before finishing up in Auckland on August 9th, and is part of the newest chapter in The Operatives: the Ten Years Strong Series which also featured Mr. Carmack and Flying Lotus tours earlier in the year.
