The UK producer will swing through San Francisco, Chicago and LA next week, and he'll also hit South America later in the year for Sónar.
The UK artist, real name Joshua Leary, is known for a dark, eclectic sound that touches on hip-hop, bass music, ambient and beyond. A Tri Angle label affiliate who's also worked with Kanye West, he recently signed to Warp Records, with the first collaboration between artist and label a London installation focused on the so-called "Trance War."
Leary will first play DJ sets in San Francisco and Chicago—Lights Down Low will host him at SF spot Monarch next Thursday, and the following night has him in the Windy City to headline a secretly-located party thrown by Them Flavors and Join The Studio, where Night Slugs artist Neana is also confirmed. Then, next Sunday he'll hit Los Angeles for a live set at FYF Fest. The day's program also includes the likes of DJ Harvey, FKA twigs and Dixon.
Looking much further ahead, to late November and early December, Leary's due to appear at Sónar's South America events in São Paulo, Buenos Aires, Santiago and Bogotá. The Chemical Brothers, Hot Chip and Brodinski are the other acts billed at all four stops, with Recondite and Pional also making appearances.
For now, tickets to the Lights Down Low show in San Francisco are available on RA.
