With the amazing Actress (Werk/Honest Jons), Paul Purgas (emptyset/Bodyhammer), Chairman Kato (Pictures Music) LIVE! and Benedict Bull (Skull Juice/BleeD/Phonica).
Cheap drinks, staunch sounds.
More about that banging line-up:
Actress’s second album Splazsh melds heavily compressed house with half-remembered snippets of video games, UK garage and R&B, all soaked in off-kilter techno. Anyone who’s seen him play live will tell you – his beats are tight and his moves are fierce.
Chairman Kato recently released his Wildfire EP on Pictures Music. He’ll be packing a lot of chubstep beats into a short but intense improvised set. His first live set ever, we’ve seen a sneak preview, and this will be insanely good.
Paul Purgas, of experimental techno outfit Emptyset and the underground jackfest that is Bodyhammer, is playing the final set. We’re not sure what – possibly some rabid breed of chicago acid, detroit techno, electronica and house.
Benedict Bull of Skull Juice, one of our absolute favourite DJs, is possibly integrating his walkman into the mix … technological tomfoolery or no his records are ridiculously good and we’re dead chuffed he’ll be playing for two hours.
Release/The Fez is at 23 Lewisham Way, a short walk from New Cross, New Cross Gate, and a ton of bus stops. N21 for London Bridge, 453/ N130/ N89 /N171 West End, 36 West London.
