PLEASE NOTE: This show now takes place at the Deaf Institute, Gorilla's sister venue - it's less than a 10-minute walk from Gorilla, just down Oxford Road.
Introducinglive began with a single great idea: take a classic electronic album and recreate it with a live band. Starting in 2007 with DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing, they’ve been playing to packed houses all over the UK and Europe ever since.
After Entroducing, Introducinglive spent a season touring Mr. Scruff’s classic Ninja Tune album Keep It Unreal. Today, a slimmed-down six-piece Introducinglive turn their sights on their greatest challenge yet: Daft Punk’s legendary 2001 LP, Discovery.
It’s hard to imagine the electronic scene today without Discovery. Its acclaimed combination of up-tempo percussion, tongue-in-cheek robotic vocals, hectic synth lines, and off-the-wall samples set the precedent for many acts that followed. Kanye West and David Guetta are two of many artists whose sounds are indebted to its influence.
Introducinglive combines the buzz of a live gig with music that you never imagined you’d hear live. Expect robotics and lasers. Expect a stunt guitarist, samples triggered by increasingly blurry hands, and sixty-one minutes of unbelievable drumming. Just don’t expect to be able to stop dancing.
