STATIC SHOCK// PERSPEX FLESH

STATIC SHOCK GIG VOL #57

PERSPEX FLESH
Celebrating the end of their European tour, Perspex Flesh return to London for the first time in half a year! "Unhinged and abstract hardcore punk that carries on the legacy of bands such as Rudimentary Peni through to Cold Sweat of creating an all-encompassing feeling of claustrophobia through their music. Features members of Broken Arm and The Flex."

http://staticshockrecords.bandcamp.com/album/perspex-flesh

MOB RULES
"'Cesstone music to try the patience of the Hardcore', MOB RULES are arguably one of best bands on the UK Hardcore scene at the moment, Leeds anger-fuelled Powerviolence at its best. Formed in 2008, this four-piece are practically Leeds' answer to Black Flag." 
Their new LP has just been released on Quality Control HQ!

http://sorrystaterecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-donor

THE LOWEST FORM
"A swirling, nasty hardcore punk record by one of Britain's finest ensembles. Negative Ecstasy takes the listener (that would be you, duh) through an aural obstacle course of thuggish pounding and piercing feedback wash. Get dirty. Where would we all be without a couple fuzz pedals? Probably listening to Vivaldi or something refined. No thanks. "I want to bash my brains out, bleed all over your drugs and watch you smoke 'em up as I drift off to the inevitable. THE LOWEST FORM is it, bruv." -Martin Ken

08.08 - This Heat: Batu +Ipman

A theoretical concept by design, This Heat launches on the  08th August  at Dalstons favourite haunt, Power Lunches. Drawing on the techno roots that run through the hardcore continuum, we've called upon Cold Recordings mainstays Batu and Ipman to show us the lineage between these now considered disparate genres. 


Batu  and Ipman have consistently shown a tasteful handling of the recent techno and bass music crossover. Serious when heard but playful in nature, their records and mixes have taken a considered approach to how these separate genres intersect. Creating something rich and what we hope, will invigorate the club scene for years to come. 

For support we've bought our good friend Tengui down. Once known for the now legendary Colony parties and renowned within the scene. He'll be showing us a thing or two with the 1210's while destroying the dancefloor. "not Sebo K" in his own words, rightfully so.

This Heat are a club and design concept. Aimed at creating a tailored event that brings audiences together through music and art.

HOT HEAD SHOW v snack family

On 9th August, two of London's most very power trios will convene in a basement to see who is the best.

SNACK FAMILY

"An unlikely middle ground between Battles and The Birthday Party."
- QUIETUS

"Snack Family is a creeping Rock n Roll monster, replete with gravelly drumbeats, striptease guitars and the most gut-twisting Sax we've heard in yonks.."
- NME

http://snackfamily.co.uk/


HOT HEAD SHOW

"Paul Simon meets Hella ... Hundreds of gibbering ideas are somehow marshalled together and made to stagger in the same vague direction, held together by some kind of musical dark matter ... featuring the word 'endochrinologically' ... a master-class in controlled chaos."
- SOUNDSXP

"A random bunch of meaningless songs about meaningless subjects."
- PROG ARCHIVES

SCRASE

Continuing our LOVWAX series in style we present to you a double whammy of releases in the form of 2 contrasting records from  Scrase , launching with a mid-week party at Power Lunches in Hackney on August the 13th.

The EPs are called 'Heart' and 'Another', 'Heart' being an uplifting and spacious adventure with glistening melodies and blissful female vocals - 'Whereas Another offers a distinctly darker listen, presenting arcane percussion and ancient ritual undertones.

Here is a video to the track Movon featuring on Another.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DqMHCOZV2I 

A pre-order link for both records will be up soon, with a release date being the 11th of August for both

Scrase is a long time favourite of ours featuring on the first web compilation and releasing his Love Love debut 'Silo Fin' back in 2008. 

Playing at the party we also have sets from some of our favourite producers and DJs: 

Mixmaster Morris, the undisputed champion and pioneer of 'Chill Out' music, producer, dj, journalist, promoter, A+R and 3 times winner of the Chill Out Ibiza DJ award. He's released records on labels such as Rising High and Ninja Tune and is enjoying an incredible career spanning over 3 decades, we are extremely excited to get him down for this party!

Datassette, having recently released a refreshing EP on Apollo Records, brings us his refined brand of sci-fi electro! Warm sizzling bass with finely laced melodies filling the gaps and adding to the groove!

Kirsti from null+void is known for particularly bass weighted electro sets littered with dub-plates. We'll see what she plays, but we're hoping for some previews of the upcoming null+void label releases. Fingers crossed!

Tickets for the event will available soon from Resident Advisor for £4.
