A night of off-beat Dance music at the Dance Tunnel.
The rising Polish crate diggers head up the bill for comm•une on Friday 23rd October, the duo who released one of our favourite albums of 2015 earlier this year. Since their debut 12″ back in 2013 (featuring the slo-House anthem ‘Krystyna’) they’ve steadily built up an international profile around their inventive Disco edits and sample-based approach to music production. A prime time to catch one of their all-around sets of Disco, House, Balearic, Hip-Hop and everything in between.
General Ludd, the outfit consisting of New Jersey native Rich McMaster and Canterbury’s Tom Marshallsay, met whilst at the Art school in Glasgow, working on interactive sound installations together before a bleary-eyed studio sessions resulted in material that would eventually see the light of day under the General Ludd banner. They make club music with a demented, percussive twist, so far releasing music with the likes of Mister Saturday Night, Ten Thousand Yen and charity fundraising project Autonomous Africa.
Although only two releases in, London-via-Leeds label Blip Discs have caused a real stir in 2015. Their Afro-soaked, percussive approach to House and Techno has been avidly supported by the likes Four Tet, Bonobo, Gilles Peterson and Bradley Zero from the off. A good to chance to see what the future holds for this promising new label.
