PLAID FULL LIVE AV SHOW + ALBUM LAUNCH!!
plus LUKE VIBERT (laptop set) + DMX KREW live AV LP launch + KING CANNIBAL (ninja tune)
9 - 3 Sat 6th March 2010 @ KOKO
One of the very first signings to the venerable Warp stable, and still one of the most prolific artists on that home of oh-so-many hard-working creatives, Plaid have always pushed the boundaries both musically and visually having recognized the potential of the two mediums and the advances in technology that has afforded them to take this realisation to it's conceivable limits.
As their recent collaboration with BBC Sound-recordist Ross Adams 'Nord Rute' shows Andrew Turner and Ed Handley are true artists with an ear for detail and a social and scientific awareness uncommon in modern electronic artists, and as we congregate to celebrate the release of their latest studio album 'Scintilli' this palpable prowess will fill the cavernous KOKO in a brain-nourishing fashion that can hardly ever be found any more.
DMX Krew, aka EDMX, aka Ed Upton creates electronic music in just about every form conceivable. With five full albums released on Aphex's Rephlex label, and countless EPs and singles on his own Breakin' Records, his sound varies from electro-pop/breakdance music right through to fully experimental soundscapes, and such credentials stand him in good stead for a night of such high-class electronic tuneage!
One of the very few artists to have been released on both Warp and Ninja, Luke Vibert is a true mainstay of the electronic music field. Countless releases, timeless tunes and multiple remixes (along with multiple aliases) have secured this man's place in the collective consciousness of two generations of music lovers, and his DJ sets have a unique quality to them representative of his own personality, a feat not often achieved by merely playing other people's records. Another true legend, Luke's presence in KOKO on this fine night is practically mandatory!
