Imagine a Japanese Lightning Bolt in outlandish fancy dress and you almost come close to describing Zuinosin. They are from Osaka, Japan and although they are fairly unheard of in this country they've just finished a Japanese tour with Mike Patton's Fantomas and The Locust.
They're coming to Europe with Ove-NaXx and decided to drop in on the UK for a few dates. You have to check out this video but beware, it's so good your tastebuds will be sopping wet afterwards:-
Khonnor is an American producer from the hills of Vermont. He's as close to live as most electronica gets, improvising with whatever noises he can find on his hard drive and anything else he picks up on his way in. His album "handwriting" got rave reviews when it was released on John Xela's type label with comparisons to Fennesz, Jim 'O Rourke and Mercury Rev a plenty. He played a pretty stunning set at this year's Sonar festival in Barcelona and has been trekking around Europe ever since.
If you don't know DJ Distinction by now then you're in for a treat. He's one of the few connections this city has to the Dub-Step scene that's been kicking off in London over the past couple of years. A regular down at DMZ in Brixton and a hardcore follower of everything that's a little grimey, he now presents a regular show on LSR on Monday nights 10pm till 12am showcasing the newest beats in this uk phenomenon.
And last but definitely not least, two little men called Skeksi and Balki. You've probably seen them about, especially in their hideout, Tribe Records. They're also the founders of Beat Inspection, one of the original electronica mash up nights from about five years back and if you caught Skeksi at the last Pollen then you know the word fat/phat is far to weak to describe their bass frequencies. Try "abominable".
So there you have it - Another fine, messy night of eclectic, underground madness.
If all goes to plan there'll probably be some quality visual stimulation to take your mind off everything if it all becomes too much.
Also, if i've got any spare pennies then there'll be some chewy sweets and multi-coloured balloons. A promise I indeed broke at the last one, sorry.
