Blackest Ever Black meets The Death of Rave on Saturday 4th February 2017
February 4th, 2017 will mark 5 years to the snowy night when a puckish Blackest Ever Black label sent their top boys - Regis, Cut Hands, Raime and Blackest DJ - to Islington Mill for a session which has become indelible from Manchester's underground folklore.
Blackest Ever Black has grown hugely in stature since then, coming to define a whole wave of uncompromising, wildly diverse and life-affirming contemporary music which stands firmly against the grain, winning them obsessive disciples across the world in the process.
They return to our city mutated, augmented and multiplied in 2017, fronted up by the immense prospect of RAIME's new live band, feat. Joe and Tom on bass and guitar and Valentina Magaletti on sticks, and precariously allowing X-amount of improvisation into their soundboy-burying, rictus No Wave chops. RAIME have only performed this show a handful of times, mostly at major festivals, so consider this is a bit of a coup.
BEB will also be ably represented by their Yorkshire psych dosers, ASHTRAY NAVIGATIONS, who just released To Make A Fool Ask, And You Are The First, along with the return of don BLACKEST DJ, plus a special set from Bristol's minimal D+B specialist PESSIMIST - who was behind that Balaklava arrow on their A14 sublabel.
KILLING SOUND member SAM KIDEL will also represent the crossover with Faktion-affiliated label, The Death of Rave, who issued Kidel's uncannily incisive Disruptive Muzak LP in early 2016, and plan to soon release the debut sacrifices from CROWW, making his unmissable live debut at this event. Trust that JON K and CT DJ will feel out the spaces between, underneath.
A hybrid rave of obscure, syzygy-like scale; sure to eclipse the first, we rate you'll agree. Come.
