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

Mechanical Techno for PRAH Recordings vs Kit Records, London

PLEASE NOTE — this event is being rescheduled due to the footy. Will update with a new date shortly.
PRAH Recordings vs Kit Records presents:
Haiku Salut, Graham Dunning, Anu (DJ), Dogarina (DJ).
15th July 2018, 18:00 – 23:00
The Pickle Factory, 13-14 The Oval, London E2 9DU

Haiku Salut are a unique proposition, sweeping between all-manner of genres but never losing the soft focus of the inspired instrumentals that provide their back-bone. Rising from minimal, glitchy pop songs into moments of distinct and awe-inspiring grandiosity, the band match the intensity of their recorded sound with a mightily fetching, and suitably dramatic live show.


This event is 18+, ID required

DJ set for Tom Richards’ album launch on Nonclassical, London

PLEASE NOTE: EVENT RESCHEDULED TO TUESDAY, JULY 31, 8:00PM

  • The Victoria
  • 451 Queensbridge Road
  • London, England, E8 3AS
  • United Kingdom

Ahead of the release of his LP PINK NOTHING on nonclassical on 13 July, sound artist and analogue tinkerer  Tom Richards curates an evening of sonic oddities at The Victoria.

From behind his idiosyncratic modular system, Richards creates mesmerising, immersive and heavily textured polyrhythmic improvisations. They’re cerebral but groovy – sonic art that’s almost danceable. Joining him, there’ll be dreamlike theremin and musical machinery from Sarah Angliss and guest singer Sarah Gabriel, as they perform a new piece using the ‘Mini Oramics’ synth – an instrument first conceived by electronic music pioneer Daphne Oram and finally built by Tom Richards himself. Also appearing is sound and video artist Steph Horak, who performs a type of improvised vocal-driven drone poetry – somewhere between experimental electronica, traditional songwriting and conceptual art.  In between performances, Graham Dunning will be DJing, playing music that explores rhythm, drone, texture and timbre.

Happy Hour is from 5–8pm – come down early for a beer and a burger before the show.

Doors open 8pm, with live music from 8:30pm.
