Live from the Trinity, Brisol

LUKE VIBERT is the ultimate UK dancefloor chameleon, ceaselessly morphing identities from his own name (billowing acid house and breakbeat) into Wagon Christ (kitchen sink cartoon-hop), Plug (quirky drum 'n' bass), Amen Andrews (junglist tear-out), Spac Hand Luke (grimey goodness), and Kerrier District (glitterball disco/house) As a DJ he goes wherever the mood takes him, and the floor will always follow: multidimensional, freerange fucked-up grooves from the original Cornish king.



VARIOUS PRODUCTION DJs are a shadowy collective of sublimely different futurists. Their unique sound - noir-ish vocals over mangled grime, deep dub and spooky beats - seems to refract Bristol of Portishead or Massive Attack through a hall of mirrors and update it for the 21st century. One of the most thrilling electronic crossover/under outfits to have emerged in years, they sit alone with Burial in taking rough-edged dubstep sonics overground by marrying them with a sweet vocal sensibility.

BASS CLEF live is a blast. With live trombone and pirate flags, he bypasses laptop/looping and embraces a primitive and banging dance experience. A rogue operator of the bottom end kind. His live show is a heady combination of heavy bass, dirty high end and killer melodies. Kinda like 'Rahsaan Roland Kirk' jamming with 'Iration Steppas' on a full moon.



VEXKIDDY are a show and a half. They bang up the place with messed up dance music via Victorian time travel mixed with an acid house sideshow. Cuthbert & Strangeways, two serious 'scientists' from the Victorian era, go in search of Vexkiddy, an interstellar being who has wrought havoc with the time flux polyphase generator that their assistant 'Trainee' was using.... 'Trainee' is still lost in future-time... will they ever reach him?
