The Centrifuge Agency is delighted to be welcoming the critically-acclaimed Orcas for their first ever London show, fresh from the release of their widely praised debut album on Morr Music. This will be a very special evening with both band members, each respected and established in their own right, also performing solo sets.
Seattle’s post-minimalist composer Rafael Anton Irisarri plays his only solo UK show this year and Michigan’s Benoît Pioulard returns to London after recently enchanting a full house at Cafe OTO with his unique guitar and vocal explorations. Be prepared for an evening of Pacific Northwestern experimental guitar music, avant-folk songcraft and symphonic neo-classical ambience.
►KRAZY BALDHEAD- (ED BANGER)- the project of French composer Pierre-Antoine Grison, crafted the EP Sweet Night (2009) and the B-Suite (Ed Banger- 2009), a 48- minute dance jam a la Justice and Ed Banger. Recent release “The Noise in the Sky” mixes electropop, 70’s jazz and Motown Funk lending a deeper touch to the ear. Dominating the French electro scene under Ed Banger Records, this EP is any and everything but your typical Top 40.This time around, Krazy Baldhead features tracks extending from the smooth electronic bass of Slow Motion,to the strong reverberant drum patterns, boarding the line of dub-step in Amplifried and the album titled song, Holding true to his title as one of Ed Banger’s most accomplished musicians, Krazy Baldhead’s previous career as an engineer now remains in history. From buying his first machines in 1998, to the ten years he spent at the Conservatory perfecting his skill with electronic instruments, to his first debut album The B-Suite, Krazy Baldhead continues to deliver in this assorted gem, ‘The Noise in the Sky’.
► JERRY BOUTHIER- Jerry Bouthier is a Paris-born but London-based DJ and producer. He’s resident DJ for Kitsuné parties held at both ends of the Eurostar; playing a mix of indie, electro, rock and pop, whilst avoiding the big obvious ‘mash up’ tunes so often relied on in nights of this genre and creating something decidedly more original. His sound is perfectly showcased on Kitsune’s BoomBox CD that came out last year – tracks from Rex The Dog and Headman sitting alongside Feist and The Young Punks, many remixed by Jerry himself with production partner Andrea Gorgerino, under the name JBAG.
► FIGURES- Figures are a london-based production duo who formed in 2011. They create atmospheric low-tempo electronic house music using analogue equipment. Described as “one of the coolest surprises in instrumental music of the year” by Big Stereo. Expect big things this year.
► BOX OF GHOSTS- “Box Of Ghosts are a collective of 5 minds connected by the love of sound. Strangers from different parts of London attracted by an ambition and a taste for good noise, dark images and a movement for change…”
►STARPUNK- is an Electronic Band from the roots of Georgia. Formed by Alex and Lasha, two young producers with different backgrounds and influences. Having already done official remixes for NOISIA and ZOMBIE NATION, their crafted tracks his production skills are a bruising muscular injection of amphetamines and strickning with a single jab.
►PHOTOMATIC- London based Marc dos Santos David brings us a dynamic twist of genres, fusing Techno, alternative rock, funk and new wave with gritty bass lines, classical melodies and rap. Being deeply rooted in Jazz, playing in several funk-rock bands Marc is also a full time composer with dance, theatre, film and installation projects
►DAN MCKIE- Dan McKie manages to defy the cliché of genres by producing across the board, be it a underground techno, tech house monster to a peak time commercial dance chart track.
He continues to remix the likes of The Whip, Stonebridge, Rogue Elements, Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, Lady GaGa, David Guetta, Colton Ford, Zimbardo, Dom Kane. As well as remix he also releases on such labels as Southern Fried, Stoney Boy, Joia, Positiva, Warner Bros, Sony, Universal, Columbia, Gusto, EMI, Newstate, RCA/BMG, Simply Recordings, Slip & Slide, aswell as his own imprints 1980 Recordings & HotFridge Records.
► OBEY! Obey! started in 2010 with Josh Torrent and Léonard B. After touring quite a bit with their metal band in Paris, they moved to London and decided to inject their Live energy into a new electronic project : Obey! From French Electro to Uk Dubstep, Obey! is bashing through different styles and tempos. They create a sound that blasts the speakers but stays incredibly dancy. Between Josh’s powerful drumming and Leonard B.’s crazy mashups and samples, Obey! live literally brings hell on earth. Once you’ve tasted it, you can’t go back.
►PUNX SOUNDCHECK- The partnership of John Taylor and Arif Salih brings together the music that shaped them and the music that’s shaping their future, traversing disco and house, reggae and dubstep, electro and (old) rave, all the while sounding effortless and elegantly modern.
►O-ARC- Recently Japanese sub cultures have become world wide phenomenon: cosply, anime, manga….They are the products of blending Japanese and Western pop culture. O-ARC’s music is created from the coming together of these two cultures but in a totally different way. Their first album “en” is highly original, poetic, atmospheric, meditative and in a way even therapeutic: healing. One of O-ARC’s admirers is Sean O’Hagan from High Llamas.
“These songs defy definition but are the sound of two artists in control of their destiny. Quite wonderful.”
Sean O’Hagan (High Llamas)
O-ARC is the creative collaboration between Masa Iida, singer/songwriter from Yokohama, Japan and London-born guitarist & co-writer Neil Mason. First meeting at a regular music night in Camden Town in 1999, since then they have formed a musical bond like no other. Masa and Neil discovered an affinity for minimalism, subtlety and the power of understatement. Their gigs have included ICA London, Tate Britain, Whitechapel Gallery, Comme des Garcons Boutique in Dover Street Market, and Art Car Boot Sale at Brick Lane.
►DJ JAY W- is an up and coming talent from south east London who has become known for his quick pased mixing and fusion of electro and tech house creating high energy atmosphere. He discovered his love for music from an early age listening to his fathers records which lead him to playing the guitar before mixing vinyl. He has since gone from strength to strength and now plays at some of the biggest commercial and underground house venues in london and the south east including Ministry of Sound, Pacha and Egg.
