Soundcrash takes you on a sonic adventure to the far reaches of the galaxy with 4 consummated sound explorers at the controls. Join us on a journey through the most colorful soundscapes known to man as we hand over the reins of the KOKO mother-ship to LA’s Daedelus launching his new AV set, Luke Vibert aka Wagon Christ aka Captain Acid, Brainfeeder’s Kutmah and his black box of delights plus the Hidden Orchestra, who’ll be coming out of hiding to deliver a full live show.
Everyone’s favourite Victorian-garmented futurist is set to turn entire worlds upside down from his podium at KOKO with his deft skills, elegant flair and wild imagination. Unveiling a brand new AV set for the first time in the UK tonight, the Ninja tune and Brainfeeder sound sculptor will create his brand of exotica dance music in front of your own eyes with the aid of his trusty Monome and approximately 5 and a half tons of talent. For this show he will unveil Archimedes for the first time in Europe, a spectacular wall of moving mirrors and lights which makes for the perfect backdrop to this genius’ musical shennanigans.
You can always count on Luke Vibert to rip it up from his laptop at any event, be it as Wagon Christ or as himself he will always deliver the goods. As hard to describe as he is to track down, Luke’s sets shine for their unpredictability, but you know you will definitely be getting a healthy dose of acid bleeps, some wobbly basslines and bruised feet. Just the way it should be.
Djs don’t get much better than Kutmah. The eclectic quick-mixing firebrand cut his teeth at the legendary Low-End Theory nights in LA playing alongside the likes of Flying Lotus and the Gaslamp Killer and in many respects surpassing them with his flawless mixing and sick music selections. From reggae to dubstep, punk and hip hop, styles merge into one relentless deluge of ill beats. Kutmah cannot be overlooked.
Last but not least come the Hidden Orchestra, a truly hidden gem hailing from Scotland to deliver their much-loved live show with two drummers; and a mixture of deep electronica with jazz (and a sprinkling of krautrock) that is making the delights of crowds the world over. Make sure you get in early for this!
