Celebrate this year's New Music Biennial with a free summertime club night of genre-bending electronic sounds curated by Forest Swords and Lotic.
The Merseyside-based producer, DJ and composer – aka Matthew Barnes – is at the forefront of modern electronic music, having released critically acclaimed records through labels like Tri Angle and Ninja Tune. His warped sound has led to remixes for Björk, a slot in the DJ-Kicks compilation album series, and appearances at festivals such as Sónar, Unsound and Dekmantel.
The night will feature DJ and producer J’Kerian Morgan, better known as Lotic. Raised in Houston, Texas, Lotic moved to Berlin in 2012 and helped to form the city's famed Janus collective. In recent years, Lotic has evolved into one of Berlin's most original voices of avant-garde club music.
For the New Music Biennial happening across Southbank Centre, Barnes has programmed a night that dives into contemporary music's most thrilling and joyful sonic fringes: a celebration of artists that construct their own worlds, on their own terms.
