Arabrot with John Doran 

Writer and The Quietus editor, John Doran, teams up with Norwegian Black metal band Arabrot for a unique performance of spoken word and music with readings from Doran’s book Jolly Lad (Strange Attractor) and incantations concerning murder, black holes, ghosts and regional bus time tables.




Chrononautz are a live duo who have been heavily involved in the murky depths of experimental art/noise/music/other for 15 years, with scores of releases under different aliases and a hefty touring schedule sharing stages with Sun Ra’s Arkestra, Thurston Moore, Damo Suzuki, Lightning Bolt, Black Dice, Chrome Hoof, Chris Corsano, etc.

Their unique approach to techno has gained support from Bok Bok, Dj Haus, The Public Strand, Altered Natives, Truss and Bleaching Agent, and featured by Todd Burns (Resident Advisor, Red Bull Music Academy) in his top 10 tracks of 2012 for NY’s Village Voice alongside the likes of Fis, Bass Clef, Ame and Hieroglyphic Being.





Cantaloupe are a synth/guitars/drums quartet from Nottingham formed in 2011. Drawing influences from afro-pop to krautrock to the avant garde, they aim to make infectious and thoroughly pleasing pop music. They released their debut album Zoetrope in March this year. 

"Even in quarter one of 2015, it’s clear that Zoetrope is going to be one of the albums of the year, so If you want some life-affirming, full throttle throbbing synth madness in your life too, you need to get on the Cantaloupe bus ASAP. Trust me, you’d be mad not to." (Louder Than War)





Klaar is a collaboration by vocalist Owen Davey (Tomlab Records) and producer Joe Shakespeare (Ecology Tapes). Klaar employ emotive, lo-fi aesthetics to construct skewed pop music and ambient environments. They have released two EPs, Remote (2012) and Dawn Hills (2013), the latter including remixes by contemporary artist Christopher L G Hill and James Vinciguerra from Australian band, Total Control. Klaar are based in London.
