Hyponik kicks off a brand new event series with a cast of emerging talent, including Hyperdub's Proc Fiskal. Experimental UK sounds aplenty.
Lurka, Proc Fiskal, Agrippa, Aurora
We’re delighted to be announcing a series of parties at Rye Wax and to kick off proceedings we’ve invited a stacked lineup of our favourite DJs and producers to showcase various sounds from the UK electronic music continuum.
Lurka (Fringe White / Timedance / Hotline)
Emerging on the scene in 2011 with a string of strong dubstep releases on labels such as Box Clever and Black Box, including a collaborative 12” with Commodo, Lurkas sound has evolved over the years while consistently displaying clear reference points of the UK underground. Recent years have seen Lurka release on Hyponik favourites such as Black Acre, Hotline and Batu’s Timedance, whom he released 2 EPs with on his freshly minted Fringe White label.
Proc Fiskal (Hyperdub / Cosmic Bridge)
Hailing from Edinburgh, young Joe Powers has released some of the most unique sounding music we’ve heard in the past year, taking instrumental grime’s framework and accelerating it, drawing from some striking samples in the process. After an a pair of impressive 4 trackers on Kode9’s Hyperdub and Om Unit’s Cosmic Bridge, Proc is due to release his debut album on Hyperdub on the very day of the event.
Agrippa (Par Avion / Version)
Having been championed on the radio circuit by Loefah, Paleman and Lamont, with ample dubs as displayed on his 100% productions mix on Berlin Community Radio, Agrippa deservedly came into the limelight recently with his excellently received “Mygraine Urgraine” EP on Berlin based Version, as well as starting his own label, Par Avion with friends Meta and Henry Greenleaf.
Good friend Aurora Mitchell’s DJ sets tend to be an amalgamation of ambient, experimental rhythms, emotional house and oddball techno. Also running the hotly-tipped Rye Wax party Spectral with a similar aesthetic, Aurora’s hosted a number of rising selectors in the past that include Anu, LOFT and Sybil Jason, whilst more recently experimenting with her own “spacious, squeaky techno” as Vampire Crab.
