Blackmass Plastics LIVE + Visuals by Stormfield
Blackmass Plastics, a veteran to many a scene, first came to prominence for his releases with the Dead Silence Collective, co-collaborating on some of their early releases for Audio Illusion & SMB records France. At that time it was hard edged mutant drum & bass and rapid-fire electro. He later established his own label ‘Thorn Industries’.
Being an artist with a breadth of influences from early 90's rave to 80's electro/industrial, Blackmass Plastics diversified, keeping an ear to the ground. It’s been a natural progression and recent years has seen a move into modern electro and mutated dub-step with tunes played by John Peel on BBC Radio One as well as on the BBC World Service.
Expect Blackmass’s set to be full, dangerous and dark with multi genre beats of 2-step, garage, dubstep, breaks and other things nice!
Scanone AV set
Perhaps best known for his work on his own label Yellow Machines and his music released on Combat Recordings, Jude Greenaway aka “Scanone” is a London-based producer and DJ who has been making, playing and releasing music for over a decade. In that time he has managed to develop a sound that skirts around the lunatic fringes of a myriad of underground genres, from bass-heavy electro and techno to glitched-up IDM and techy, brooding, dubstep.
As both an accomplished producer and DJ, Scanone has performed live sets in various contemporary London venues: Fabric, Cargo, Herbal, Sketch, ICA, Wang, Bass Invader, DJ’ing alongside some of the biggest names currently on the scene: Radioactive Man, Si Begg, Andrew Weatherall, Tipper, Point B, Cursor Minor, Warlock, Blackmass plastics, Benga, Vex’d...
We are in for a treat with Scanone’s latest AV show, pure beauty in audio/visual manipulation!
Stormfield AV set
The boss behind Combat Recordings, Stormfield DJs, produces and performs audio-visual live sets at various parties, and also runs the regular Riddim’n‘Bruise radio show on Sub FM.
Please check out his audio-visual expertise right here:
Combat’s main subverter Stormfield was sonically trained via the early strains of LFO, Aphex Twin, Black Dog, Autechre and the first wave of dark, techy atmospheric drum and bass masters Photek and Source Direct, later carrying these influences proudly through other forms of music like electro, dubstep and hard breakage.
Later exposure to the works of Scorn and a 4-year stint living near Brixton’s colossal dub sound systems left him with a pathological need for chest-rushing basslines.
