Slipped Disco returns to its occasional central London home on Sat 25th May and invites the legendary electronic innovator Matt Black, of Coldcut fame, to demonstrate his and Ninja Tunes latest invention, the Ninja Jamm.
Developed by Matt as part of his ongoing quest into new innovations (his past triumphs includes bringing sampled music into the British charts and creating the first UK house music hits), the Ninja Jamm is a new tool for reworking recorded music live. This will be Matt’s first London showing of the technology and offers the audience the chance to get up close and personal.
Parisian electronic indie pop duo The Penelopes were inspired to start their band by early UK electronic acts such as New Order and the Human League. Their updated synthpop sound first got them noticed in 2008, but it’s since their recent relocation to London, a year ago that they’ve really started to cause stir. Their single ‘Now Now Now’, released at the end of last year, has been picked up for the Sim 3 soundtrack, while their heroes, the Human League, invited them on tour in November.
DJ and host Ben Osborne, founder of Noise of Art, will be on hand to keep the dancefloor moving with a trademark eclectic set.
