Lia Mice’s live sets incorporate custom designed instruments and live voice sampling, bringing new dimensions to the hardware sampler live set. She has performed live in the UK and internationally at venues including The Tate Modern London, The Museum of Arts and Design New York, and WOMB Nightclub Tokyo. Drawing inspiration from electronic pioneers BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Laurie Anderson, Harald Grosskopf and Suzanne Ciani and analog hardware live performers Laurel Halo, Karen Gwyer and Eric Copeland, her unique production is the result of years of experiments with a wide range of technology from analog samplers, to Max/MSP, to self-hacked instruments, to 8-track tape. Her new LP 'The Sampler As A Time Machine' will be released on 9th of November via Optimo Music.
A'Bear (Janine A'Bear) is a London based producer, DJ and remix artist with a natural affinity for polyrhythmic beats and psychedelic synth grooves. Trained in gong meditation, A'Bear brings her deep connection with the chaos of sound to everything she does whether DJing radio shows on Noods Radio and Netil Radio or performing her hypnotic live analog synth sets in clubs in UK and Europe to releasing tracks on experimental labels Elestial Sound (Florida) and Система (Russia). A’Bear’s remixes have garnered international attention, with a recent remix appearing on Term Records and receiving praise from the likes of Jeff Mills and Gabriel Prokofiev.
North London native Loraine James is an electronic artist/producer (influenced by artists such as Aoki Takamasa, Telefon Tel Aviv and Toe) with a lot of promiseand already a wealth of material. A master at crafting organic textures through inorganic means, she effortlessly blends Electronica and IDM with whispers of jazz and ambience all wrapped up in the artists key avant-garde aesthetic and sensibility. Having released her debut album ‘Detail’ in 2017 and winning The Oram award in 2018 (named after Daphne Oram), Loraine has gone on to play at Shankra Festival in Switzerland, Rye Wax and Splice Festival at Rich Mix.
Louis Jaquet aka Kid Who divides his time between his own production and his label, Bravura, which he runs with fellow South Londoner Andrew Yukon. His eclectic, heads-down DJ sets take in all manner of drum machine-driven warehouse obscurities from the 80s to the present day.
END ALL WORK:
End All Work is a DJ and producer based in London and dreaming of a post-capitalist future. In the studio he conjures a deep, harmonically-rich brand of electro steeped in tradition yet wholly his own, while as a DJ he revels in the dynamic tension of balancing disparate rhythms, genres and styles, cutting his teeth promoting nights like Bad Dimension and Power Outrage, his ongoing collaboration with long-term friend and partner-in-crime Kid Who.
digital selves (Lizzie Wilson) is a London based artist who uses live coded algorithms of computer synthesis and found sounds to create a fusion of melodic lo-fi and industrial techno and explores the realms in-between. She recently collaborated with BBC R&D to design 'Unspoken Word', an interactive AI music composition sonic art installation exhibited at Ars Electronica 2018.
London based producer Lizzy Laurance fuses tech noir beats with net-concrete, found sound and fragments of pop melody. The result is dark, chaotic club music that collapses into itself, revealing occasional, crystalline moments of experimental pop.
Ni-Ku is a producer, DJ and sound artist with a background as a vocalist, co-Founder and resident of Megalast and softerTouch club nights at Dalston Superstore, previously ran afterTouch at VFD, and is a regular on Noods Radio.
