Following his sold out Village Underground show earlier this year Clark returns to London bringing his genre-defying sound to the Scala. Celebrating the launch of his ‘Fantasm Planes’ EP (ticket + EP Bundle on sale here) Clark headlines at this historic building. With support from the excellent Kuedo playing an AV set and the post-Dilla sounds of Letherette this show is an essential night in the capital’s electronic music calendar.
Since the release of his ‘Iradelphic’ album back in April – his best selling album to date – Clark has taken in shows across various continents wowing crowds in Canada, USA and throughout Europe cementing his reputation as one of electronica’s greats. Recorded during the same period as ‘Iradephic’ the ‘Fantasm Planes’ EP is a counterpoint to the LP, featuring alternative takes on the main tracks from Iradelphic as well as new material, and sees Clark exploring the harder, more dancefloor orientated side of his work. To quote the man himself “This EP is more about conjuring the full mind-distortion that you get when you hear this music on loud sound systems.” Clark is recharged once again and enters a new chapter in his ever evolving musical journey. It’s safe to say the Scala show will be very special indeed.
A name that shouldn’t require much introduction is Kuedo. Formerly one half of dubstep pioneers Vex’d, Jamie Teasdale’s ‘Severant’ album from last year saw Jamie take the production blueprint of dubstep and wire it through a future cityscape reality, a sound he has taken further into the dystopian future with his 2012 single “Work, Live and Sleep In Collapsed Space”, a very strong contender for track of the year.
Letherette have been making waves for themselves of late, taking their infectious live show across the UK and Europe and picking up a horde of fans along the way. With an album penned and set for release later this year is won’t long before you are hearing a lot more from this future thinking duo. Hip Hop meets Electronica, done right.
