Night Music : Slugabed Live

Tuesday 14th November 2017

Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh

Slugabed is Gregory Feldwick, who runs the Activia Benz label and has released records for Ninja Tune and Planet Mu (OFFICIAL). His latest, Inherit The Earth, marks his debut for the weirdo hip-hop and electronica enclave Anticon. It’s an apocalyptic collection — one that begins in earnest with “Stupid Earth” and ends with “Earth Is Gone Sorry” — but there’s so much beauty in Feldwick’s visions of decay.

He’s at a unique confluence of music scenes: he DJ’s at Berghain, remixed Roots Manuva’s ‘Witness (1 Hope)’, established the wonky end of dance music nearly a decade ago with the Donky Pitch crew in Brighton, and has accumulated praise over the years from a wide range of respected DJs including Mary Anne Hobbs, Mark Pritchard, Benji B, Laurent Garnier and Surgeon as well as Tom Ravenscroft and Huw Stevens on BBC Radio 1.

Basically everyone across techno and bass has nothing but the highest praise for him.

Hosting this LIVE show is a real coup, we are truly honoured to be hosting such a talented artist. On his new album ‘Inherit The Earth’ he makes bass music of a sort, but it’s part jazz odyssey, part hip-hop beat tape, part future-pop deconstruction, part Part John Carpenter soundtrack, part post-rock adventure. Once again, he’s miles out there, mystical, astral, and yet still making music that works on the dancefloor.

Night Music is our series of late live shows with a midnight curfew. Past guests have included Machinedrum, Daedalus, Com Truise, Tiger & Woods, Auntie Flo and Koreless.
