BLACK LANTERN MUSIC: WE ARE ONE
Can you believe it?? Black Lantern Music is one year old! We're having a big party to celebrate, so if you're in Edinburgh (or within reach), get your arse down to Henry's Cellar Bar on Sunday October 3rd, from 7pm til 1am, for some quality hip-hop, electro and dubstep action! AND... it's FREE before 11pm.
Here's who we have lined up!
STANLEY ODD (Circular Records)
Immaculately played live hip-hop with jazz and indie inflections. Stanley Odd released their debut album 'Oddio' to critical acclaim this year, rocked T in the Park, and are supporting Sage Francis... a band on the up-and-up, the saviours of Scottish hip-hop.
MORPHAMISH (Urge Mode)
Tearing up the dubstep, techno and breakbeat scenes with his live sets for the past decade and more, Morphamish, head of the Urge Mode label, is a destroyer of dancefloors. Supported by Radio 1's Vic Galloway, Mary Ann Hobbes and Rob Da Bank, he is fast becoming one of Edinburgh's most talked about electronic artists
ASTHMATIC ASTRONAUT & HARLEQUINADE are...
THE CHURCH OF WHEN THE SHIT HITS THE FAN (NeverZone)
Superproducer AA, whose 'Super Intelligent Common Sense' album was released to widespread praise this year, joins up with doom-rap pioneer Harlequinade (Sileni / Chemical Poets) to become The Church Of When The Shit Hits The Fan! Delivering booming electro beats and futuristic precision rhymes, this is their EXCLUSIVE debut performance! DO NOT MISS!
EATERS (NeverZone / Eatersmusic)
One of Edinburgh's longest-running, most respected hip-hop outfits, Eaters combine exquisitely produced beats with old-school decksmanship and lyrical wordplay with rare wisdom, wit and depth. Performing an experimental set exploring their incredible LP 'Shouting At The Wind,' this is a rare chance to see one of the capital's best kept musical secrets.
As part of the Vibration Terrorists, and as a DJ of twelve years experience, Krowne is an experimental electronic artist with a rich and complex sonic palette. His debut on Black Lantern, 'Orders From Mars,' combined classic trip-hop with electro, techno and breakbeat influences to stunning effect.
TICKLE & TEXTURE (Chemical Poets)
Black lantern emcees Tickle (Burning Bright) and Texture (collaborator with Morphamish) will be in attendance throughout the evening, dropping science, politics and dark magick over and in-between some of the acts.
