Guest slot on 199 Radio

On Wednesday 22nd August from 10:00 to 12:00 I’ll be playing records for 199 Radio. Provisional title for the show is Mixed Bag. Because, to be fair, it’ll be a mixed bag. I’ve been buying lots of cheap and odd second hand vinyl recently, so it’ll be a selection from those: forgotten 1991 rave tracks, gamelan music from Bali, fairground organ LPs, machine sound effects, UK garage, etc. Plus various new experimental and electronic music I’ve collected over the past few months.

New release: Tentation, LP and digital

My new record Tentation is being released by White Denim on 2nd September 2018. It’s an album consisting of two long tracks, each recorded with the mechanical techno setup.

The first side, Another Rhythem, has a piano chord, minimal beats, crackling noises and lots of dub delay. On side B, Ping Pong Rhythem uses a broken cymbal pinged with a solenoid, crunchy cheap analogue synth bass, spring reverbs and, of course, some ping pong balls. Listen to an extract here:

Folks in the UK or Europe can buy from my bandcamp page here.

People in the USA can save some money by buying directly from the label, here.

Mechanical Techno at Green Man Festival

I’ll play a mechanical techno set for Casey & Ewan’s Crystal Massage at Green Man festival in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, on 18th August. My set is in the Cinema Tent at 16:50 on the Saturday. Info and timings below.

Ewan Jones Morris and Casey Raymond are makers of wildly eclectic and awe-inspiring videos, full of DIY aesthetics and tongue-in-cheek humour. They’ve worked with the likes of Cate Le Bon, John Grant, DJ Shadow and Leftfield. For 4½ hours they will be taking control of the cinema tent and putting on some of their favourite bands, accompanied by whacked-out art-trash visuals and punctuated by their own unique brand of music videos.

13:50 – Stung
14:40 – The Twelve Hour Foundation
15:35 – Islet
16:50 – Graham Dunning
17:40 – Charismatic Megafauna
