Keep It Cryptic: Secret Warehouse Party on Friday 19th April 2019
Jay Carder b2b Eva Crystaltips 23:00 - 00:00
A dynamic DJ duo - French-born Eva Crystaltips and London-based Jay Carder will be bringing the experimental goodness to Liverpool, having just played massive gigs at Ministry of Sound and Printworks London alongside the likes of The Black Madonna, Peggy Gou, Honey Dijon and Mella Dee - and are currently under the mentoring of legendary producer Artwork (responsible for Croyden's Big Apple Records, and subsequently for giving birth to early UK dubstep). Expect deep disco grooves with a taste of UKG - what else, we can't say for sure.
Direct Injectors (live set) 02:00 - 03:00
Dirty scouse electronic grooves - a live set founded by local producers CLW and Xtract, combining acid, breaks, electro, footwork flavours pulsating through. All sounds created on the spot using a synth and drum-machine set-up, no pre-recordings going in - just pure, spontaneous dance music - for fans of Drexciya, Claro Intelecto, SESSION VICTIM, and FJAAK.
Cosmic Shepherd 00:00 - 01:00
Returning from the cosmos equipped with hardest broken beat techno, Cosmic Shepherd combines a set flow similar to The Chemical Brothers with the noise of Randomer, Laurent Garnier, and Simian Mobile Disco, and is one of the only DJs to have made the Merseyrail Sound Station shortlist of local developing talents.
The Cryptide 01:00 - 02:00
Debut set from Keep It Cryptic’s very own DJ collective formed by selectors Ché Wilson & JRay to show off their darker side -who’ll be throwing out some absolute 1am filth on a breakbeat, acid, electro and jungle tip, including some unreleased original tunes coming out on their label very soon. For fans of Special Request and Frankie Bones.
Fire House Rockers 22:00 - 23:00
For the more funk, hip-hop and disco-centric side of their selection, the Fire House Rockers will be giving you that good-vibe energy early-bells to keep you going til late.
Kermit Leveridge & Super Weird Soundsystem 21:00 - 22:00
Having just dropped their mixtape ‘System Too Hot’, legendary MC Kermit Leveridge (Black grape), teams up with SWS' Josh Ray for a strictly dub-reggae ting.
Matica b2b Beat Detective 20:00 - 21:00, 03:00 - 04:00
To start and end the night properly, Xjukebox Music residents Matica and Beat Detective take to the decks for both the opening and closing sets - kicking off the night with dubs and steppers, and finishing playing jungle and rollers til the sun comes up. Outrageous bass to be expected.
Our favourite jazz-infused groove-makers are back once again, this time for a later set headlining our second room. Infectious music for the soul, but a unique sound nonetheless. Having just been confirmed for Sound City, they are ones to keep an eye out for this coming year.
A mixing pot of dark dubbed-down, funked-up space-punk, with hints of hip-hop, reggae, and psychedelic sounds. Now with a number of bookings at big festivals/events such as BeatHerder, Festival Number 6, Fiesta Bombarda, & Positive Vibration… the group are tapping more and more into the alternative dance music scene. Expect things to get very aggy, very quickly.
This electro-pop songstress combines dark, glitch-esque production with a classic vocal style to be compared with Kate Bush. With Stealing Sheep supporting her last year, and a monthly show on Melodic Distraction (Equinox), Luna has been able to share her sounds to Liverpool and beyond, and she will be performing a more stripped-back version of her usual sets, converting her sound into an solo Ableton Live setup.
Formed by PINS bassist Kyoko Swan and electronic producer Daniel Broomhall, both hailing from Manchester’s suburbs, bass-heavy dream-pop duo Kyōgen are bringing their experimental sonics to the party. Expect a combination of contemporary dark electronic rhythms and bassy synthesizers, with ethereal, melancholic melodies remaining at the core.
Nottingham’s hip-hop hippie who travels the galaxy armed with a loop pedal, a microphone, quick fire lyrics and beatbox vocals as his weapon of choice.
The Blurred Sun Band
The psychedelic-jazz wizards of Liverpool return to Keep It Cryptic, prepared to blow your mind without blowing out your eardrums - just easy grooves that soothe.
Having recently recruited a new band setup featuring Bill Nickson, Daniel Astles’ sterling songwriting and incredible voice will send chills down your spine, as he brings his laid-back psychedelic sound to Keep It Cryptic for the first time.
Putting a more neo-soul and trap feel into electronic pop music, Remée and producer J Wall bring some weighty songs openly touching on love and lust.
A perfect blend of heavy funk and psychedelia to kick off the evening in style - these lads know how to make your head bop.
Kalisae (liquid set)
Having just played in India, Kalisae brings the liquid vibes to room two for when you need a break from all the room one madness.
Liverpool Arts Lab Skiffle Factory
Demonstrating some of the best rhythms that can be made with pots, pans, bottles and other miscellaneous objects, the Arts Lab crew are back at it again.
Cotton Mouth Poetry Night
Host Leighton Ramsdale seeks to unsettle your midnight minds with his quick Scouse wit and west philosophical points, helped out by his Cotton Mouth poets.
Ché Wilson - DJ/Producer (psychedelia set)
For the final room two set of the night, Jacaranda resident Ché Wilson plays all things cosmic, a laid-back mix of psychedelic rock, trip-hop, dub, world, and disco, releasing you back into the real-world Mancuso style.
Stay safe, look out for your mates, and remember to always Keep It Cryptic.
