DEMDIKE STARE is a collaboration between Sean Canty and Miles Whittaker, two childhood friends from the North of England with voracious appetites for record collecting. After years spent mining vinyl bins for source material, the pair started collaborating in earnest back in 2008, re-appropriating sounds they had spent a lifetime cataloguing into weird and immersive music of their own. The project went on to produce a string of albums: Symbiosis, Triptych and Elemental, that were largely guided by the occult and the strange symbolism their surroundings in Pendle provided. The duo released a new album titled Wonderland (Modern Love) in November 2016, followed by the hour-long cassette Circulation in January 2017.
SUZI ANALOGUE is an American Soul / Electronic / Experimental artist best known for her ingenious vocal and production contributions to today's genre-bending urban music. ANALOGUE'S aesthetic utilizes vocal notions of classic soul mashed against electronic charm, creating soundscapes that are conveyed through a global perspective. She released the latest addition to her audio/visual beat-tape series, ZONEZ V.2 (Never Normal Records) in August 2016 and recently dropped a new visual, MOVE / IT / OFF, in January.
STAVE will also be here, the solo project of Jonathan Krohn (MALE) whom last played EB with DEMDIKE STARE in 2013! Kicking off the evening is our old DJ pal JORDAN ZAWIDEH.
