Icarus (live) + Vaetxh (live) + Colonist (live) + Missaw Dj
Sat 16 April 2011 // 20:00
(Sat 16th April / 8pm / £6)
Icarus is the innovative electronic music duo of Ollie Bown and Sam Britton. Beating to a decidedly
experimental electronic tempo, from their sampler based deconstructions of drum and bass in the 90s to
the continuing generative and improvised software based genre smashing that has characterised their
more recent releases, Icarus have always carved their own distinctive, eclectic path through the world of
electronic music, an approach that has seen them release a plethora of records on labels as diverse as The
Leaf Label, Output Recordings, Temporary Residence and Domino.
Joining them tonight will be Colonist. Returning following a successful techno improv at SECKS earlier
in January, he will be piecing together some rather special drum patterns, interwoven with analogue tones,
bleeps and blops.
All on the fly and utterly essential.
