PLAID (Full A/V Show)
Mira Calix (Live)
15th April 2017
Warp Record’s legendary production duo bring their full A/V set to Village Underground along with some of the most exciting names in electronica…
Plaid sit right at the very heart of global electronica. In fact there’s a very real sense in which Ed Handley and Andy Turner are the perfect encapsulation of what the electronic music of their generation was all about. As Plaid and as two-thirds of The Black Dog, they were central to the “Artificial Intelligence” movement of the early-mid 1990s: alongside their WARP stablemates Autechre, The Aphex Twin, B12 and allies like Richie Hawtin, Speedy J, Kenny Larkin, they brought new rhythmic variation, emotive melody and sensual textures to electronic music, creating a warm and welcoming counterpart to the white heat of the rave explosion.
Plaid’s most recent album ‘The Digging Remedy’ is one of the duo’s greatest offerings yet and the chance to see them perform is live accompanied by their full A/V show is definitely not something to miss out on.
Joining Plaid on the night with a live performance is Planet Mu founder Mike Paradinas (live) as well as Mira Calix (Live) and Bambooman. With a line up this colossal this is all set to be an amazing night.
