Line-up /Ebola, NeuTek, Mothboy, Veqtor, Filaria, Oxynucid, Red Box Recorder, Unit Cell, DJ Acroplane Recordings, missaw
The UK’s big two advanced electronics netlabels join forces for an epic night of live music.
Watch out for a STRICTLY LIMITED CD pressing of a compilation showcasing the quality and diversity of the two labels on the night, also to be released online later.
Ebola LIVE (Spectraliquid, Acroplane)
Ebola is Wrong Music co-founder and all round gentleman Ben Hudson. He has taken his explosive “bass-oriented” live set all over the UK, Europe and beyond. Expect styles ranging from dubstep to dancehall, breakcore to booty-techno, crunk, grime, and all in between.
NeuTek LIVE (The Centrifuge)
NeuTek is an Oslo-based electronic musician, software developer and programmer and returns to West London following a precision sonic demolition last summer. The fruits of his technical creativity yield expressive electronic music that transcends the myriad paradigms of electro, acid, ambient, rave, chiptunes, glitch and breakbeat.
Mothboy LIVE (Ad Noiseam, Acroplane)
Mothboy is London-based Simon Smerdon. Starting as a bass player for hardcore and metal bands in his native Devon, he turned to electronic music after his move to London in 1996, forming Ocosi shortly thereafter. He then recorded two Cds with this band (one with Mick Harris of Scorn fame and one with Ad Noiseam band mate Horchata) before quitting the band in 1999. Mothboy was then born as Smerdon’s main project. To date, as Mothboy his own inimitable style of hiphop and breaks on Acroplane Recordings, Ad Noiseam, Disco.r.dance and Ohm Resistance to critical acclaim.
Veqtor LIVE (The Centrifuge, OXO Unlimited)
Sweden’s Veqtor, curator of the OXO-Unlimited netlabel and all round hardware/software demon is jetting in for his first London show having wowed the crowds at the wonderful Norberg festival this summer. Expect inventive beats, max/msp-fuelled sonic explorations and dirty dub techno.
Filaria LIVE (Acroplane, Bug Klinik, Kinnego Flux)
One of the resident Acroplane artists from it’s inception, Filaria has been wowing audiences with his live performances in Ireland for many years, but has also travelled extensively to perform, including being one of the main support acts for Bogdan Raczynski to over 5000 people in Belgium, and supporting Drop the Lime in New York. He is also known as one half of Kinnego Flux, who you may remember have recently released a collaboratory release with Boxcutter on his new Kinnego label. Dave also has a collab track on Boxcutter’s new ‘Arecibo Message’ LP.
Oxynucid LIVE (The Centrifuge)
A classically-trained musician with golden fingers, Oxynucid aka Dominick Schofield is fast making a name for himself in electronic music. Having spent 10 years playing keys in an electro-indie band that made it big, he left to pursue his solo career. Barely moments later, he signed to The Centrifuge and has released a string of acclaimed EPs and tracks, combining his electro tendencies and braindance influences to shape wondrous pieces of lush melodic electronics. You aren’t gonna see too many reel-to-reel players and Korg MS-10s on stage either – live electronics can be real, and Oxynucid’s sets have been the highlight of many a Centrifuge show.
Red Box Recorder LIVE (Acroplane)
Still only a relative youngster in the scene, Red Box Recorder’s 2 LPs on Acroplane Recordings have been among the labels most well received releases. His recent Colour Codes LP title says it all; here is a woven rainbow of elastic sounds and beats that displays a confidence uncommon for an artist with only one previous album to hoist. This Ginglik show will be only his 2nd live performance, and we foresee that it will be something very special indeed.`
Unit Cell LIVE (The Centrifuge)
Supersaturated melodies and metastable bass lines combine with the blips of nucleation and brass of solubility to permit Unit Cell formation under the correct chemical conditions.
DJ Acroplane Recordings
The main man behind the Acroplane label, Paul has also been a professional DJ in Ireland for many years, having supported acts as diverse as Autechre, Scorn, Luke Vibert, Si Begg, Kevin Saunderson and Hellfish, amongst dozens of other household names. In his DJ Acroplane Recordings guise expect a mixture of new and old music from the label, mixed up with other music that he considers influential to its output.
missaw (The Centrifuge)
missaw is The Centrifuge’s label curator & resident remixer, creating electronic concoctions for the body and the mind.
VJ the SuRReaLaRTiST (Ginglik)
GINGLIK’s resident VJ the SuRReaLaRTiST pushes the boundaries of live clubland visuals every week @ TECHLIKS. Turning the beats into light, colour and shape means that your dance floor experience is truly a multi-sensory one. Mixing an eye popping blend of tough graphics, cult films, timelapse, CGI, lasers, stop-frame animation, surrealism & abstraction; all with a bit of dark humour thrown in there for good measure. Your retinas won’t know what to do with themselves!
