ELECTRONICA HELPS

Ethereal, emotional, truly atmospheric ; these artists have come together to bring you a night to remember…all the while, your ticket price will be going to support a great cause.

Rival Consoles

London-based producer Ryan Lee West, better known under the name Rival Consoles, is notable for making synthesisers sound human and atmospheric. With the release of his 'Odyssey' and 'Sonne' EPs, West has gained a reputation for making thoughtful electronica that spans a wide spectrum of musical ideas. Foremost a guitarist, growing up listening to rock rather than club music, his new studio album ‘Howl’ sees West strive towards finding a more personal balance between music for home listening and larger spaces.

Fascinated by sound from an early age, Ryan chose to dedicate his time to studying, experimenting with and producing sound, graduating from De Montfort University in his hometown Leicester. Having repeatedly performed at such prestigious venues as the Tate, and having created a bespoke audio-visual performance for Boiler Room at the V&A Museum, the blueprint for West’s current live A/V show was formed. Featuring self-programmed visuals in Max/MSP has earned him appearances at music festivals around the world including Mutek, Decibel, Big Ears and Berghain’s Pop-Kultur Festival, as well as tours in support of Clark, Nosaj Thing, Luke Abbott and Kiasmos.

Alex Banks

Since releasing his debut album Illuminate in the summer of 2014, Buckinghamshire-born and Brighton-based producer Alex Banks has progressed from being an in-demand remixer and Solid Steel ‘Mix of the Year’-winning DJ to that and so much more today. From touring Europe with Moderat to DJing in Tokyo for Red Bull Music Academy’s EMAF, via countless live performances at continental festivals including Germany’s legendary Melt, he’s raised his own bar, his own way. And what comes now and next is just as forward thinking as the material he’s put out previously, unbounded by electronic music’s typically rigid genre barriers and capable of connecting with an audience on a cerebral as well as a physical level.

A key word is emotion: Alex’s music has it to spare. That was evident back when his remix of Bonobo’s ‘The Keeper’ crept out in early 2012, slow-rising to public recognition as the outstanding reworking of material featured on Simon Green’s acclaimed Black Sands LP. With the best part of two million plays across SoundCloud and YouTube alone, attracting SoundCloud user comments like “a true masterpiece”, the track’s popularity, besides fine receptions for further remixes for the likes of Andreya Triana and Husky Rescue, formed a fine foundation from which Alex could further develop his own original material, forever retaining a grip on his audience’s hearts as he moves their bodies.

Greymatter

Greymatter is one of the three producers that helped form the foundations of WOLF Music, along with KRL and Medlar. He is also a key figure at the Mr Bongo record label.

His unique take on house music is the result of an inclusive and progressive musical palette that has seen him take in a sprawling catalogue of music over the years.

Greymatter's second full-length LP entitled ‘Visions’ was released in May 2014 on WOLF Music to critical acclaim, following on from his self-released 'Mind Over Matter' in 2009. After an 18-month break, a new wave of new material began to surface in late 2016 with ‘Move Slow’ on WOLF ‘7 Years Who Cares’ double-7” pack. This was followed by several singles and remixes, in preparation for his third LP 'No Blood Without' in spring 2017.

fire_sign

Taking influence from as much electronica and techno as they can fit in their ears, the duo have drawn comparison as diverse as Zomby, Massive Attack, Dusty Springfield, even their musical heroes Moderat.

fire_sign have performed at Hazy Days Festival, Pandora Fest, at The Electronica Social, at Brighton’s Chapter XIII Studio & Gallery and at venues all over London including The Good Ship, Zigfrid von Underbelly, Queen of Hoxton, 93 Feet East, Mau Mau Bar (where they supported Hejira), The Garage, Servant Jazz Quarters (supporting Alex Banks), The Nest, and Paper Dress Vintage for Indigo Sessions amongst others.

The duo’s work has been playlisted by Amazing Radio, American podcast The Justin Wayne Show, Threnody’s Sub FM radio show, Repeat FM, It Matters Radio, In the Moog and local UK radio.
