Kendal Calling

Very privileged to be asked to play on the mighty Traffic stage at Kendal Calling this year. Will be bringing over the hardware and scratch technician Replete for this gig. Hardware in the form of my new Roland 707 and the SH-101. Expect slow techno nod outs to warm up the crowd for Skream et al. This is a nice gig as the North West is best, and I can go downhilling at the very cool Whinlatter trail centre in the day.

Binary Jam Tim Exile and Sarah Elliot

This gig was fantastic. Played in the lovely Bluecoat centre in Liverpool. Binary jam was invited along to play and all the acts were amazing, Wrongbot, Jaqs Malchance and the headliners Tim Exile and Sarah Elliot.
If you get a chance to see these two play together do so. Sarah has a great big piano rigged with motors and little hammers to trigger sounds on the piano, her playing is fantastic and with Tim’s trademark hyper fx and edits. The two managed to improvise a half hour slot of explosive sound design and beats that never flagged in energy or ideas.

All in all a really inspiring night of music and performance and radically different to the usual laptop yawns.

Matt Elliot

Went to see Matt Elliot the ex-third eye foundation producer tonight at the Brudenell Social Club.
Was pretty good to see someone singing, playing a guitar and looping with imaginative use of effects and some beats.

He also had a good voice too. Which helps. His songs are quite dark, and remind me of old laments or sea shanties. Thats not to say they are retro in any sense, but more the content and lyrics are of the sea and some kind of gallows humour.

Much recommended.
