Line-up /The Village Orchestra, Nanorhythm, Goodhand, Mark Solo, Langer
Now into its fourth year, The ill-ec-tro-nic has a well established placed within the blogosphere, having built a reputation on helping to showcase the diversity to be found in electronic music and being just as keen on promoting music from little known artists as from some of the scene's more established names.
On Saturday July 18th, 'ill-ec-tro-nic Presents' will deliver a night of varied electronics to London's Southbank with sounds ranging from atmospheric electronica through techno, house, dubstep and the thriving UKF scene whilst maintaining the strong techno undercurrent that's never far from the top of The ill-ec-tro-nic's agenda.
The Village Orchestra plays live and as anyone familiar with his work will know, TVO has an arsenal of electronic weapons in his machines ranging from cerebral armchair electronica through to dancefloor bombs whilst always exhibiting an air of playful experimentation. With a new album just released on Highpoint Lowlife and still riding the wave of the critical acclaim he received for his The Dark is Rising EP on Stuffrecords earlier in the year, this rare London appearance for the talented producer is expected to be as varied as it is entertaining.
Via his alter-ego, RAW, Nanorhythm will already be known to The ill-ec-tro-nic readership and while a small number of his productions have been exposed to the world via the blog and through the Soliton Research netlabel (of sorts) that he co-runs, this is Nanorhythm's debut live set. He'd been working on a host of new productions and is looking forward to unleashing his brand of dub-infused techno minimalism on the crowd.
DJs for the night will be delivering a three-pronged attack in the form of Stuffrecords / Numbers DJ Goodhand whose sure to be bringing the funk with his glitched-up party tunes, ill-ec-tro-nic founder Langer who'll be spinning his latest 'dubtec' faves and ill-ec-tro-nic's Café 1001 regular Mark Solo who'll be dropping techno and house bombs in his uniquely animated style.
