Massive TOPH faves coming together for a massive Monday night bill:
Yeah You is Elvin Brandhi and MYKL JAXN. The project grew from a desire to make something during every spare moment. Using compact recording gear to turn the usual banal everyday family drives to into spontaneous recording sessions in the car. JAXN’s distorted, alluringly jarred synthesisation’s acting as a jagged platform for Brandhi to writhe improvised stream of consciousness lyrical trips.

"Gateshead electronic artist Martyn Reid, serves up a skilfully assembled noise vortex. Undulating drones slowly give way to angry buzzing static, like a swarm of cyborg wasps trapped in a very big biscuit tin. We’re a universe away from the Hakka and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. Reid’s sound is trippy and very alien, moving through a series of distress beacon-like drones and reactor core overload groans before erupting into a full-on deep space dogfight, proper Cylon vs human style. A great way to kick things off."
PA switch off. End of. 🔥
