At Home With LWE: 12th MayTue 12th May
Featuring the likes of Kosh, Anna, The Advent, K-Hand, Keith Flint and more, Tuesday’s At Home With selections are in.
Kosh - Inner City Electronic Mix
A rare glimpse into the live set of one of Morocco's premier talents, Kosh. Having blessed the world with his infectious Null 212 EP in 2018, the Casa Voyager stewart has been an ever present conveyor of cosmic electro funk. A recent upload of his Inner City Electronic performance shows off the groovemaster’s coveted vault of celestial treats.
ANNA - BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix
From the outskirts of Sao Paulo to one of the faces of techno, ANNA’s path to the top has been an unprecedented journey of hard work, passion and determination. Honing her craft at a local nightclub since the age of 14, the Brazilian export has solidified herself as one of the top chart toppers of today with a unique brand of entrancing melodic techno, landing on labels like Drumcode, Kompakt and Plus 8. ANNA’S culmination of hard work was topped with an outstanding debut on BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix series last year.
The Advent - Life Cycles Album
A long standing force of the underground making his much awaited return to electro, 17 years later. Known for having a distinct snappy looping signature style, The Advent has been supplying dancefloor ammunition since the 90s with hits such as Pro II, So What and High Horse among countless others. Reconnecting with the past to bring us into the present, he dives into some unreleased cuts from the 90s to gift us Life Cycles. A 9-tracker fusing elements of electro, acid and ghetto tech.
K-Hand - Acid 101
Often the unsung hero of the early US underground scene, K-Hand deserves a spot on the Mt Rushmore of pioneering Detroit greats. Responsible for numerous high impact releases dating back to 1990, the Acacia Records founder’s sample-heavy, soul-infused, energy-bursting style has become a trademark in itself. One of our all time favourites is this stripped back, acid techno cut released on Warp Records back in 1994.
History Of Electro - The Ultimate Guide
To pay our respects to legendary Kraftwerk co-founder Florian Schneider, it’s only right we revisit the genre that the German group helped manifest with their groundbreaking experimentations in the early 70s and 80s. From the game changing release of the Roland TR-808 to Afrika Bambaataa’s Planet Rock and beyond, here is a nose dive into the history of Electro.
The Rave Years with Keith Flint
A worldwide rave icon that bridged the line between punk and electronic music, the legend of Keith Flint lives on through people’s memories of The Prodigy’s outlandish, rebellious frontman. Who better then to describe the UK’s early rave years than the late, great man himself?
