The PAN artist will play live and DJ at shows in London, Amsterdam and Berlin in 2013.
The UK artist was one of the surprise packets of 2012, releasing two consummate LPs on Bill Kouligas's PAN label, Diversions 1994—1996 and Dutch Tvashar Plumes, with the former coming in at number 13 on the RA writer's poll of 2012's best albums.
The tour will kick off with a live performance at a sold—out gig alongside Pan Sonic's Mika Vainio this Friday, January 11th, in the intimate confines of East London's Cafe Oto. The following night he'll share the bill with Cut Hands, Raime and Pete Swanson at the Sonic Acts exhibition in Amsterdam.
From there Gamble will play a further 11 dates that take him through to April, some of which will feature Kouligas and PAN label—mates Helm, Heatsick and NHK'Koyxen. Highlights include a gig at Berghain in Berlin as part of a PAN label showcase at the CTM Festival on January 30th, and a slot at the Future Everything Festival in Manchester alongside Hieroglyphic Being, Rashad Becker and Andy Stott on March 22nd. Londoners who missed out on tickets to the Cafe Oto performance will have the chance to see Gamble DJ at Phonica Records party on Friday, January 25th, and again at a WIFEY show on March 30th.
