Wolstenholme Square, Liverpool, L1 4JJ, United Kingdom
Recently signed to Hyperdub records with a number of highly acclaimed releases through Hippos in Tanks and NNA tapes is electronica’s brightest new act LAUREL HALO. Her music encapsulates an astonishing breadth of styles and sounds, from ambient pop, deconstructed techno, psychedelia, noise and beyond, creating a body of work ever altering but continuously unique. Laurel Halo will be releasing her debut album Quarantine in late May a week in advance of her first show in Liverpool at the Kazimier. Among her solo work Laurel Halo has also appeared on tracks by Ford & Lopatin and Carlos Giffoni as well as remixing acts such as Planning To Rock, Sleep Over and Blondes. She has also recently released an EP entitled Spring as King Felix on Mute Records’ imprint Liberation Technologies.
Supporting Laurel Halo come two of Liverpool’s most promising electronic acts. The profile of UK bass producer DAUWD has grown steadily bigger since debuting free double-header Could It Be/Shimmer on the Pictures imprint last year. Since then he has also released his first physical release entitled Whats There on the same label and has wowed many big names in the dance and bass scenes, including Mixmag, XLR8R, the Fader and acts like Caribou and George Fitzgerald. This will be Dauwd’s first live performance.
SUN DRUMS formed in 2009 originally as a folk group but have since gone on to create beautifully dark soundscapes, electronic music that is both euphoric and haunting at the same time. Their 2011 self-titled 12’’ was named The Double Negative’s Liverpool record of the year and has received plaudits from various blogs including No Fear of Pop, Abeano and thefourofive.
Throughout the night Tom Gorton of OUTFIT will be DJing between acts and afterwards, rounding off Deep Hedonia’s first show that promises to be a memorable evening for the Liverpool music scene.
