With a heavy leaning towards other worldly strands of techno and house, self-styled ambassador of art school electronica Luke Abbott made waves with his Border Community debut album ‘Holkham Drones’ in 2011. Strengthening his credentials last year with two EP releases ‘Modern Driveway’ and ‘Object Is A Navigator’ on NOTOWN Records, the former of which found proud place on the likes of The Wire and Time Out stereos.
As much at home on stage as in the studio, on April 6th Luke Abbott will perform a live audio-visual show alongside video artist Dan Tombs.
Over the past three years Glaswegian producer Dam Mantle has refined his distinctive approach to ambient electronica, jazz and hip hop by effortlessly blending the nostalgic warmth of J Dilla and the skittish eclecticism of Daedalus and Debruit with a brooding, noir sensibility.
When not recording and performing his own work, Dam Mantle has crafted inimitable and frequently astonishing remixes for labels such as Warp Records, Ninja Tune, Planet Mu, Ghostly International and a wide variety of other artists.
Since releasing his second album ‘Brother Fowl’ on NOTOWN, Dam Mantle has toured both the US and Europe with his ally Gold Panda. On 6th April Dam Mantle will perform live alongside video artist Dan Tombs.
Early 2012 saw the release of Wesley Matsell’s highly revered ‘Zones Within Zones‘ EP on Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist’s label Studio Barnhus, a combination of jacking house grooves and heavily swung synth arpeggios. Wesley also delivered remixes for Taragama Pyjarama and Phil Kieron.
Wesley’s DJ sets trace the frayed intersections of techno, house, garage and acid, old and new, raw and often experimental. His sets are also known for sometimes featuring obscure noise and experimental sounds, as well as vintage electroacoustic music.
Dan Tombs’ video explorations have led him to become an integral component in experiencing the music of Luke Abbott, Jon Hopkins, Walls and Factory Floor.
Dan Tombs joins Luke Abbott and Dam Mantle on the night creating visuals generated through manipulating video feedback loops through hardware video mixers.
Sheffield born, Londoner Mister Sushi has DJ’d for close to fifteen years and worked professionally in the music business for nearly as long, building a substantial record collection along the way. His versatile and eclectic sound has found him sharing stages alongside A Guy Called Gerald, Mogwai, Pantha du Prince, Oni Ayhun, Caribou, Legowelt, Dopplereffekt, Jon Hopkins, Apparat, Ewan Pearson, Psychemagik and countless others.
Recently he has delved in the media of radio, hosting a monthly show ‘Synthesize’ on Radio Cómeme, exploring his passion for the synthesizer and it’s journey down the futuristic highway of electronic music.
