Playing at The Canteen on Thursday with Jilk.
A night of electronic music at Bristol’s trendy flan selling-organic beer drinking -sofa sitting-vintage wearing- tea shop, the Birdcage on Corn Street.
There are three acts playing, myself, Jilk and T-toe. Jilk and Ttoe have known and worked with London’s underground electronica label Bit-Phalanx for many years, and it was actually Jilk himself who spotted me at a Drawn Recordings night (funnily enough sharing the stage with T-toe), who asked me if i’d be interested in coming on board. Last October saw the first label release I’ve done which was through Bit-Phalanx. Essentially this night is three electronica artists playing out for no real reason other than because we love gigging. We are so excited to all be on the same show for once, (as we are endlessly supporting each other at live shows), so expect a lot of energy, a lot of foot tapping come body moving, and i’ll be there with Jason who provides mesmerising visuals to my live shows.
Its £3 which means, for those of you not so great at maths, £1 per artist.
I feel this is a reasonable deal, and if you feel otherwise, perhaps you should come in and heckle?
Hari from Electronic Music Wales was kind enough to invite me to do an interview for their site.
You can read our chat here – EMW
Covering topics – cheating in music, live electronic improvisation, stealing culture and field recordings, what it’s like to release through a label, studying music in the University of Wales, Newport, and other bits and bobs.

This week is a busy one for me.
I’m excited to do my second performance as part of a new project (Only You Can Reset It) tonight, at The Island, Bristol.
Only You Can Reset it first appeared in October 2013 as part of a pop up record shop, and are returning with a fuller sound and a more developed set. We are Kayla Painter and Jon Worsley, and we take influence from all the music people. People have said it sounds like: experimental cheesecake, Modeselector, Thom Yorke, Lakota @ 3am, January never ends so stay indoors and make some sweet music. Happy with the feedback we have received we’re looking to expand on what we’re doing and you’ll hear more from us very soon.
If your intrigued to hear what KP and Jilk sound like in a lasagne together, come along to the Island tonight. Its free entry, suggested donation of £3 is welcome but not forced, and its not deemed (even by our social standards) as rude if you don’t want to donate.
You’ll also be delighted to hear some experimental auditory ness from Seth Cooke & Dominic Lash, and Timothy C Holehouse & Raxil4. Henry Lee Colins (aka Shitmat) has curated the night and will be joining in opening with a half an hour set.
Hope to see you there.
Times as follows:
1800-1830 – Shitmat
1830-1915 – Only You Can Reset it
1930-2000 – Seth Cooke and Dominic Lash
2015-2100 – Timothy C Holehouse and Raxil4

Audiophiles christmas party
With thanks to The Crisis Project, live footage filmed at their Launch party.
On Friday I had the pleasure of going to watch Baths (Will Wiesenfeld) at The Oval Space, in London.
I performed one of my first ever gigs supporting Baths, in Bristol’s Fire station, and felt it was necessary to see what he was up to. (That and that I pretty much got through 2010 by listening to his album Cerulean).
He has a new album out now, Obsidian (2013), which is what most of his set what about on Friday.
He wore shorts. The music was top.
