BleeD presents – Blackest Ever Black label
Founded in October 2010, BleeD has spent the year as a curatorial nightlife experiment searching for ways to join the dots between abstract and more conventional dancefloor sounds. Bringing us an exclusive showcase of London label ‘Blackest Ever Black’ on Friday 21st October, marking one year of the much attractive sound that is leftfield electronica.
Recovering some of the lost violence and romance in electronic music, Blackest Ever Black has been inspired to an extent by the forgotten heroes of industrial, goth and synth wave, also with deep roots in techno, jungle and of course the British soundsystem culture. Its goal has been to combine the pensive with the visceral, the futuristic with the atavistic.
Blackest Ever Black brings to you the distinctive sounds of a few of the label’s core artists.
REGIS, a member of Downwards and Sandwell District soon to be releasing solo EP in ten years via Blackest Ever Black. Using deep roots in industrial and post-punk Regis has been a major influence for Blackest.
Cut hands (live), the new solo project from a true icon of the British underground,William Bennett. Founder of Whitehouse in 1980 who succeeded in creating music over the next 27 years! For Cut hands, rhythem is the core element to the music generating a sound unrivalled in its physical intensity.
Raime (live), is the London based duo who’s widely acclaimed debut EP was built around goth, post-punk and industrial, while their follow up single gave more of a rhythm based vision. With work on their third 12” it’s to be expected that this party will be the tracks informal launch.
If thats not enough for you, there will be a special set from a secret guest artist. His/her identity will not be revealed until the night itself. It’s a SURPRISE!
Location of the event will is situated at ‘Basing House’ at the Shoreditch end of Kingsland Road, a dark and habitual mid-sized club like no other, still retaining the history of the space.
A night spent dancing to loud electronics, be a shame to miss it!
