We have a very special night lined up for you for our first night of the year!!
We are delighted to welcome back Kontakte, who released what was for us the best album of 2014 with ‘These Machines’.
Conceived in 2005 from a string of old 4-track demos and further realised via a labyrinth of digital workstations and computer software, Kontakte emerged in early 2006. The concept was to blend organic instrumentation within an electronic and hypnotic framework of programmed beats and pulsing synths. Inspired by the walls of sound of bands like Godspeed You Black Emperor and Mogwai, Kontakte’s other main passions were the ambient sounds of Brian Eno, mid-late 70’s German electronica and the early 90’s shoegaze scene. Taking elements from all of these things, Kontakte have endeavoured to create a sound that is uniquely and deservedly their own.
The Kontakte live experience is a blistering wall of intense guitar noise bonded by shimmering electronics and ethereal melodies. The emphasis always on constantly pushing boundaries and continuously stretching both the scale and the limits of their music. The band have toured both the UK and Germany sharing stages along the way with M83, Fuck Buttons, Vessels, A Place To Bury Strangers, Teeth Of The Sea, UpCDownC, Port-Royal, Damo Suzuki, The Telescopes, The Lost Rivers…
This film composer from Manchester is best known as half of Ghosting Season and worriedaboutsatan, as well as solo project Winter Son.
He released his new album ‘Bait’ at the end of August via This Is It Forever, to coincide with the screening of Dominic Brunt’s film of the same name at Film4 Frightfest.
The album started life as a film score to the UK thriller, but rather than just release the various background drones and atmospheres, Ragsdale re-opened the files he’d given Brunt and started to re-imagine the whole thing as one complete album, as opposed to merely a soundtrack.
On the night we’ll see the fruits of his labours in a multi-media performance.
