British Murder Boys
The collaborative project between two techno masterminds, Regis and Surgeon, British Murder Boys, stemmed out of a need for change from the ‘club-focused’ techno that was beginning to circulate in the early 2000s. From their psycho murmur-laced ‘Learn Your Lesson’ to the punishing mayhem of ‘Fist’ and the broken head shaker ‘Be Like I am’, BMB are responsible for some of the most powerful, uncompromising and widely recognised industrial records ever. The pair will be bringing their explosive live show to Tobacco Dock for their first UK showcase since 2018.
With a career spanning nearly 20 years and 10 albums on the Warp Label, Clark is one of the true innovators of electronic music. Whether it’s rich ambient pieces, orchestral film scores, or visceral techno hits, Clark is guaranteed to challenge your perceptions of the norm. Shining throughout is a love for melody, surprise, detail, texture and exploration.
Dozzy is true life long student and professor of music. From his deep understanding of disco, italo and reggae to his unequivocal knowledge of techno, Donato Dozzy holds one of the most extensive music palettes in the world and it shines through in his productions and DJ sets. Renowned for his deep hypnotic take on techno, Donato Dozzy will be bringing his distinctive psychedelic live show to the capital for an exclusive UK debut.
One of electronic music’s most talented and fastest rising stars, British born Ghanaian-Russian-German composer Afrodeutsche will be presenting her striking new live A/V show ‘Amt det Steele’. Having caught the attention of Craig Richards in 2016 with her eclectic, boundless and frenetic DJ set, Afrodeutsche has gone on to support the likes of Aphex Twin, Dopplereffekt and DJ Stingray. Meticulous over every detail and perfectionist in her approach, Afrodeutsche’s unique productions merge a classical upbringing with influences of Drexciyan electro, Detroit techno and UK electronica which she will be bringing to life on 4th April.
Italian DJ, producer & Blackest Ever Black affiliate is an artist that has been making huge waves in the electronic circles. Ushering the fearless experimentalism of early electroacoustic pioneers, her productions blend the intricate otherworldly sonorities of musique concrète with the avant-garde synth sounds of Japanese minimalism and techno-pop. Sylvia’s DJ sets show the same level of exploration as she glides effortlessly between an array of fringe electronics, heavy rolling bass-lines and contemporary club sounds.
One of the rare few upcoming purists dedicated solely to the craft of DJing. Having cut her teeth in the London underground scene, Sybil has built a reputation for her extensive DJ sets that range from the intense, to the playful and the euphoric. Constantly maintaining a perfect balance between the three, Sybil’s mixes are notable for their highly visual narrative arc, allowing the listener to get lost in a carefully curated sonic journey that transcends all space and time. Having recently had the honour of closing Berlin Atonal, she makes her Tobacco Dock debut at Re-Textured.
