Lory D and Automat are two artists that really shouldn’t need too much of an introduction to any Glasgow native. Both men have visited the city on many occasions over the last 5 years or so. Most notably when both played at Numbers in a basement in the Merchant city and “that set from 69″. Since then Lory D has made return ventures to Numbers as well as Edinburgh’s fantastic Substance night. Automat has found his way back to the city through numerous appearances at Pest Control – each time consistently brilliant with his signature take on the electro and techno sound. If you haven’t heard much of his music then check out his Electrospectif 1997-2004 album for a better insight – it’s a certified belter!
On Friday 27th April both artists will return to the city once again to perform for Pest Control and us here at La Cheetah Club who have decided to go into a joint venture for the night.
Lory D – “He was one of the first people to bring the Acid House and Hardcore sounds of London to Rome, where he is regarded as something of a god. His inspiration comes from Rome’s nighttime metropolis, the darkness and beauty of the city and the overwhelming feeling of the underground raves he plays. His musical influences are as wide ranging as Aphex Twin, Suicide, Drexciya, Spk, Ligeti, Frankie Bones, The Mover and Underground Resistance. Sounds Never Seenhas released a clutch of twisted metal soundtracks in recent years… never more than 500 copies pressed and all fanatically collected by likeminded freaks. All the records are most effective floor fillers, all are ’sounds never seen’. Together with Rephlex label-mates, Leo Anibaldi, Bochum Welt and the D’Arcangelo brothers, Lory D best represents the sound of Italy, or even the ’sound of Rome’, since 1991. Lory’s music is fearless, original and strong Electro and Techno.”
Automat – ” Few of us have forgotten Automat’s amazing performance at the We Love AFX party on May 15, 2004. The electronic music giant himself, Aphex Twin, stayed close at hand throughout his entire set, appreciating as a connoisseur the French deejay’s deft juxtaposing of electro / techno sounds.
Automat’s talent that night was of course hardly a fluke: his deejaying career debuted in 1995 under the name of Tha`Natur, when, closely associated with the Upstream crew, his crashing sounds began revving up the crowds and earning him regular appearances at parties throughout Brittany.”
Support on the night will come from Monox residents The Wasp and Currie.
