Returning exclusively to London for the second time ever, our favourite Victorian garmented futurist is back with his trusty beat-crunching Monome and steamfunk audiovisual invention Archimedes!
This new audiovisual spectacular is simply jaw dropping, and has been causing a huge fuss in many corners. Check out this footage of him live in NYC last year.
Imagined by Daedelus, created with the expertise of Emmanuel Biard and David Leonard, and premiered at KOKO to huge acclaim Archimedes is an impressive bespoke mechanised wall of moving mirrors.
In time with the music Archimedes twists lights and flips images projected from its base, amplifying the already-ecstatic light show for a unique visual experience.
Accompanying Daedelus in main support will be Taylor McFerrin, who has been turning heads with his one-man musical show. Combining his skills as a producer and performer, Taylor builds songs from scratch with his ambitious solo project. Vocals, Fender Rhodes, synthesizers, samples, and beat boxing are meshed together as Taylor draws deep from his roots in ‘60s soul to his vision of future hip-hop.
Brighton based Ambassadeurs has built a serious international following online by giving away incredible tracks like MOPE. Tastemakers worldwide have picked up on his productions with XLR8R in particular giving premieres to the video for MOPE and new track Duke Red . Off the back of this support Ambassadeurs was in XLR8R’s most downloaded artists of 2011 list. Back in the UK Tru Thoughts, Ninja Tune and Moshi Moshi have all enlisted his talents for remixes while his live show is earning him festival bookings around Europe. 2012 is set to be a big year for Ambassadeurs with the release of his debut album in Autumn.
On DJ support will be two of the top selectors currently residing in the UK: the mighty Kutmah and Throwing Snow will be showing us how it’s done!
