WAQWAQ KINGDOM (Phantom Limb, Japan)
Japanese musicians Shigeru Ishihara (DJ Scotch Egg / Seefeel) and Kiki Hitomi (King Midas Sound) team up for their mind-bending WaqWaq Kingdom guise, a thrilling exploration of “minyo footwork” drawing on imagery from traditional Japanese mythology, combining this influence with Jamaican dancehall, 8-bit techno, African polyrhythms and experimental electronic music, with plenty more helping to colour a powerful, vibrant palette.
YOKEL x D.HAM x FRANCO FRANCO (Bokeh Versions, Avon Terror Corps)
Bristol’s dankest hip-hop / industrial beatsmith Yokel meets freestyle sermons of evangelical grunge & illbient from street pastors Franco Franco & D-Ham. Performing fresh off the back of their full-length album ‘Parable of the Empty Cup’ on Bokeh Versions, which to our ears is one of the most exciting releases from the city in recent years and a contender for album of the year.
ARCADIA PLANITIA FIVE-A-SIDE FOOTBALL TEAM
Fragmented tales retrieved from the outer realms of unknown realities retold through an improvised jam spanning a variety of instruments and genres. A squad of multi-instrumentalists bringing their improv-based Martian folklore soundscapes. New on the scene hailing from the caves of Bristol & a suitably wacky accompaniment to WaqWaq!
