Jon Hopkins ( live )
Nathan Fake ( live )
Kapital resident Barry O'Connell.
Get your party hat on and bring yourself along as a present to the Kapital boys for their 7th birthday bash on the 28th of November.
Just in case you needed any more convincing, they’ve managed to secure not one, but two of the UK’s finest purveyors of wonky techno; Jon Hopkins and Nathan Fake.
Jon Hopkins has been on the list of ‘must have’ guests for some time, but last year’s breakthrough album Immunity and a peek at his live show at the Art School earlier this confirmed it was imperative to have him at The Caves. Of course, there’s more to the man than one brilliant record: he began by playing keyboard for Imogen Heap, which lead to collaborations with Brian Eno and David Holmes. This was followed by writing the Ivor Novello award-winning score for 2010 film Monsters and a year later working with King Creosote on the Mercury Prize-nominated Diamond Mine.
To complement the debutant, Barry and Brad have secured the services of Nathan Fake for a record-breaking third set at Kapital. Another master of the knob-twiddling live performance, Fake recently moved beyond Border Community, teaming up with Wesley Matsell to create the Cambria Instruments label and release the superb Black Drift/Bismurth split single.
