An evening of music across two stages curated by global electronic music authority Resident Advisor.
Mount Kimbie is the south-London duo of Dom Maker and Kai Campos, whose melodically rich, rhythmically complex music has exerted a significant influence upon UK club music these past few years. Following an acclaimed 2010 debut album for Hotflush Recordings, Mount Kimbie recently signed with seminal UK label Warp (a new full-length is in the works for early 2013). They make their return to live performance at this year's Ether festival with a headline show - their first London gig since April 2011.
Enigmatic London-based duo Raime seeks to re-establish electronic composition as a physical and emotionally inquisitive force. This performance serves as the UK premiere for their long-awaited debut album 'Quarter Turns Over A Living Line' - out in October on Blackest Ever Black - with a new audio-visual live show presented here for the first time.
Bass Clef - recording alias of prolific London producer Ralph Cumbers - is the artist behind one of the year's most brilliantly unconventional dancefloor full-lengths, 'Reeling Skullways'. Collaboration and live performance are the life-blood of Cumbers' artistic endeavours, and he is set to perform twice on the night. Firstly he is in an audio-visual session in The Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall with his live electronics collaboration, Ekoclef, alongside Bristol-based experimentalist Ekoplekz. Later on he performs in The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall with a full Bass Clef live show.
Airhead is a UK producer in the ascendant. Rob McAndrews records for the greatly influential R&S Records and will release his much-anticipated debut album through the label early next year. Playing a special DJ set, Airhead kick off the second half of the event in The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall.
Ticket prices are £17.50 (this includes both Purcell Room show at 8.15pm, and The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall show at 10pm) and £12.50 (The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall show at 10pm only). Mount Kimbie, Bass Clef and Airhead perform in The Front Room.
