Switch Hop ft. The Decibel Kid CD Launch
Another fantastic Switch Hop, wonderful electronica adventure from SU in her DJ debut, really glad we bullied her into doing it and she clearly enjoyed herself. The Decibel Kid's live set went by almost without major cockups and he sold enough CDs to buy his supper, which apparently counts as success in the music industry nowadays. Psyone rounded off the night with a killer ElectroSwing set. And you lot were lovely too, great to see more new faces, promising to bring their friends to the next one. Quote of the evening "It's not your normal cheesy house night is it? I LIKE it!"
Switch Hop gets a bit meta, we're hosting our own resident DJ - The Decibel Kid - who will be playing a selection of tunes live and launching his debut plastic shiney disc thing.
The Decibel Kid
Often spotted in town and city centres videoing airconditioning units and trains, he composes electronica from these snippets of the urban environment using video playback technology that he programmed himself. Or magic. We're not sure which. Either way the result is always spellbinding, but don't take our word for it, check out his website and see for yourself.
A regular Switch Hop punter and lover of a wide swathe of proper good music from The Aphex Twin to Bonobo through to soundsape artists and beatmakers you've never heard of. Make sure you get here early and catch her, you might learn a thing or two.
