Lineup and Details for TUSK Presents DIGITS (Live) on Sat 21st July 2012
TUSK are proud to present a special one-off show, featuring a stellar line up including...
John Thorp (Work Them)
We're teaming up with the soulful Canadian electronic artist DIGITS and a few of our favourite DJs to put on this very special evening of music, at the newly opened 2022NQ on Dale Street.
As well as all this, expect some fantastic live visuals, from some amazing local artists.
Digits is Alt Altman, a melancholy minimalist synthpop/R&B artist from Toronto, currently living in Berlin after six months in London. In April 2012, Digits went from being almost unknown to becoming a critical darling among newspaper critics, online magazines and influential blogs with the release of a 12-song mixtape of all-original songs called Death and Desire. It featured a remix by minimalist R&B pop artist Nite Jewel (Secretly Canadian). The release instantly found an audience among webzines, with Prefix, Clash Magazine, Exclaim, and Dummy all posting the mixtape in its entirety on their sites, with glowing reviews. Features in The Guardian and the Toronto Star (Canada's most-read newspaper) followed. Performing using two synthesizers, a laptop, and a looping pedal to reproduce his songs live, Digits has opened for YACHT, Class Actress, Au Palais, Mmoths and Dan Black.
John Thorp is a writer, DJ, admin assistant, former sex shop worker and failed stand-up comedian from Manchester. In 2011 he, along with a few friends, established Work Them. A forward thinking alt disco dedicated to future classic, current groovers and records that still sound as fresh as any.
Also making the quick, cross town dash is Scott from new weekly clubnight, Shapes. Providing punters with their fill of indie, electro, disco and everything in-between, Scott will be treating us to a special set featuring a choice selection of records that span every genre imaginable.
Lest we forget, the TUSK residents will be filling in the gaps, playing you the best house, disco and any other oddities peering from their record bag.
