“Since their emergence in late 2010, born in November 2010, Audio Doughnuts have positioned themselves as undeniable champions of all corners of forward-thinking electronic music. With 4 eponymous ‘Presents’ nights under their belt, Audio Doughnuts have hosted a veritable who’s-who of electronic music’s vast diaspora; names including Zed Bias, Pinch, Boddika, Ben UFO, Fantastic Mr Fox, Scratcha DVA, Jamie XX & Joy Orbison have graced their events. Happily coinciding with Audio Doughnuts now taking their first strides forward as a burgeoning imprint and label, it is now time for the fifth in the ‘Presents’ series, which summons a mammoth, all-encompassing line-up to celebrate the collective’s landmark first anniversary.
The 25th of November 2011 will see Audio Doughnuts host their birthday celebrations at one of South London’s best kept secrets – Vauxhall’s ‘Hidden’ – as part of the highly anticipated Found series. The line-up hosted by the Audio Doughnuts family features a selection of names that sit comfortably alongside the rest of the Found line-up – featuring more then 150 of the most thrilling names to have blessed the electronic music scene in the past few years.
Headlined by a live-set from Numbers veteran and Warp newbie Rustie – who will be playing his masterfully enacted forthcoming debut album ‘Glass Swords’, the line-up features some of the most exciting emerging and instantly-recognisable names in electronica. LV & Joshua Idehen bring their live show; an exciting opportunity to see the best moments from critically-acclaimed Hyperdub & Keysound debut ‘Routes’. To accompany these stunning live-sets comes sought-after new producer Koreless; named by BBC Radio 1 as one of the most key acts to watch in the coming years. Veterans appear anew as Jamie Vexd’s alter ego Kuedo graces the 1′s and 2′s at Hidden with an exclusive set of material from his latest album. In true Audio Doughnuts fashion, these awe-inspiring headliners are bolstered by a whole host of other names including Hyperdub dancefloor-dons Funkystepz, Garage & Dubstep pioneer Oris Jay plus 20 artists fresh from the Audio Doughnuts camp including The Fives Live, R1 Ryders, Shox, Onoe Caponoe Live, Pusherman, Mista Men, TOYC, Teeza, Widowmaker, Korus & Modepth.
Curiosity will surely be roused by the dotting of question marks that grace this particular ‘Presents’ event information. Simply, Audio Doughnuts will be bringing two jaw-dropping secret special guests with them – whilst a further two acts to be announced before the evening. This is Audio Doughnuts in their element – the biggest party of the year, a celebration never to be forgotten and a line-up near- impossible to top. As a year of success and growth begins to come to a close, this First Anniversary is sure to confirm to all onlookers that as a growing label and an established night, few come more exciting and essential to watch than Audio Doughnuts.
Given the gravity of the line-up and the consistent success of the nights, tickets are highly expected to sell out far in advance – and after four sell-out nights the Audio Doughnuts family kindly suggest you make it down early to join in the celebrations.”
