Tickets: £SOLD OUT
In a world in which upstart DiY talent is flooding the gates of electronic music, a few recent voices have been so strong as to be startling. Lapalux is certainly one such. As singular as a brilliant artist always should be, his instinctive understanding of the atmospheric power of texture grips the ear immediately on listening. ‘Nostalchic’ is his debut album, mission statement, and the climax of many years of studying his craft. Evoking nostalgia without ever sounding nostalgic the album is his most focused document to date, adding his beloved R&B and soul into elements of house and hip hop, all with the trademark Lapalux finish; infectious, lopsided swing and achingly deep texture.
Having made fans out of Diplo and SBTRKT, remixed everyone from Lianne La Havas via Crystal Fighters to Bonobo, Tawiah, AlunaGeorge and Speech Debelle, as well as supporting FlyLo and playing the main stage at Sonar and in Japan with Clark, it’s prime time for Lapalux’s debut full length. Happily, it was well worth the wait.
Also Joining us to celebrate the release is Baths latest and greatest exponent Slugabed. Signed to Ninja Tune who then subsequently released his debut album to critical acclaim, his single ‘Sex’ plagued offices everywhere with its infectious bassline and vibed out 80’s chords and left people whistling it to themselves for weeks after. Live he is a force to be reckoned with and is a dab hand at knowing how to get a crowd moving, we know you’ll want to be down early for this guy.
On DJ duties will be the ever reliable Moxie. Invited by NTS radio to host since their inception, Moxie has since had her own fortnightly show where she showcases her love of music, ranging from the latest dancefloor cuts to forgotten disco-edits. Her tastes do not end there but extend into the myriad of modern electronic music meaning that you’re never quite sure what’s going to be brought to the party, but you do know it will be good!
