ICARUS, Badun, INCH-TIME
Mystery Plays Records presents a night of adventurous laptop electronics. Just back from a residency at STEIM (Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music) in the Netherlands, Icarus perform a rare London show previewing material from their forthcoming album. Support from Danish IDM/Jazz pioneers Badun (Not Applicable) and Inch-time (Mystery Plays).
Icarus is the experimental electronic duo of Ollie Bown and Sam Britton. So far this year, they have produced a flurry of remixes for the artists Caribou, Inch-time and Eclectic Method featuring Chuck D.
Imminently forthcoming is their collaborative limited-edition vinyl EP with Danish electronica duo Badun, with whom Icarus' musical affinity is clearly audible. Tonight brings a rare chance to hear their unique blend of sculpted hyper-rhythms and microtonal flutter at Café Oto.
Hello! We are a Electronic/Jazz group. Badun's adventurous, and narrative music is the product of (Oliver Duckert & Aske Krammer). The music is somewhere in between abstract digital sound design, Non-repetitive electronica, IDM and the free spirit of seventies fusion Jazz.
“Probably the most elaborate programming of cyber-jazz to date.” - Bernd Friedmann (Burnt Friedman/Flanger)
“You seldom come across electronic music like this nowadays and it's rarer still that it's this well executed.” - Boomkat (UK)
