Prior to the release of the new King Midas Sound album, Hyperdub revealed the first part of a mini-documentary. Members The Bug and Kiki Hitomi talk about the idea behind the new album and we also get to see footage from their July show at London’s Koko.
This November will see the release of Without You, an collection of reworks and revoiced versions off their debut Waiting For You.
London has always been a place where you could go on a random weekend and find a party where one of your favourite DJs/producers will play the best music you ever heard. But even in such a place there are some special events and from the look at the line-up, next weekend’s Soundcrash
event could be one of them.
United at Camden’s Koko, you will get to hear DJ sets from heavyweights such as Harmonic 313, Hyperdub founder Kode9 and Eglo’s very own Alex Nut. And there’s more to it with live performances from Austrian Korgmeister Dorian Concept and another Hyperdub’s King Midas Sound.
We’re giving away two pairs of tickets and here is how you can enter the competition: If you are 18 years or older, all you have to do is leave a comment with your email address (won’t be published.) Winners will be picked randomly, but then again we’ve always had a soft spot for anecdotes. If you have a story worth telling related to any of the performing artists, that might increase your chances a little. The give-away Wednesday at midnight, London time.
Regular tickets can be ordered for £16 at Koko‘s website. The party starts at 9 pm, be there early!
Update According to this tweet, regular tickets are almost sold out!
Admittedly not the best quality, but here’s a video I recorded at the magnificent Flying Lotus gig at London’s Koko last week. Together with Dorian Concept on keys and Richard Spaven on drums, Flying Lotus took his show to new heights.
Find some photos from the night on the Koko website. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the much better music video for Kill Your Co-Workers!
