This Christmas, Concrète are teaming up with our comrades Them There Records to bring you a bumper seasonal bash at The Continental. Four live acts, two from Concrète and two from Them There, plus DJ support from Carl Brown of Them There. We’ll also have merch from both of us – tapes, records and the like – for your last minute Christmas purchases.
Check out the lineup:
In the Concrète corner, we have Yehoshua and Lorentzian – Yehoshua’s recent release on our label offered a sideways glance at immersive drones, bleeps and broken techno – expect more besides from his live show. Lorentzian’s live performances at Concrète in the past have veered from beatless cosmische to wild percussive techno – we can’t wait to hear what he has in store this time round.
Limbering up in the Them There corner are label co-founder Crook, and star of our Christmas show a couple of years back, Otherchannels. Crook promises us ‘A deconstructed collage of samples and synths, field recordings and blown out beats, accompanied by fuzzy, transient visuals exploring visions of isolation, decay and days gone by.’ Otherchannels’ show in 2014 remains one of our favourites – lush, warm ambient fuzz of the highest order – while we’d happily have a re-run of that, we’re sure this is going to be a further step up.
Carl Brown (the other co-founder of Them There) will also be dropping tunes, and we’ve put together a Them There / Concrète soundclash mixtape featuring exclusive tracks from both labels and tunes we love for the first 20 people through the door, so get down early.
It’s a no-brainer isn’t it really? Come and hide from the black Friday part-time drinkers and help us see in the holidays. £3 on the door. The facebook event is here…
