This morning Autechre announced their first London headline show for 5 years and it all takes place at the Electric in Brixton on Saturday 21st of November.
When Warp Records are mentioned, Autechre’s name soon follows. Sean Booth and Rob Brown’s music has constantly evolved, and has remained challenging, influential and original since the project’s inception. They spearheaded the growth of IDM’s popularity in the UK alongside the likes of Aphex Twin and their legacy has continued to grow throughout the years.
Their live show is an assault, plunging their crowds into darkness and letting sound burst through rooms. They blend the dark with the light, abrasive bass with lush electronica.
Also playing on the night will be Objekt, the platform for TJ Hertz’s structurally rich sound design and forward thinking take on techno. Powell’s mangled brand of electronica, Robert Haswell’s exploration in noise and Rob Hall’s abstract experimentation complete a mouth-watering lineup for fans of the forward thinking, experimental music that Autechre has had such a profound affect on.
Electric Brixton’s all-nighter on November 21st is one that has to be experienced. A night dedicated to the left of centre, music that pushes the boundaries of what is possible and a rare chance to see Autechre live.
