Brain­feed­er has announced its takeover of Lon­don’s Brix­ton Academy on 15 Decem­ber to cel­eb­rate the label’s 10th anniversary. The night, presen­ted in col­lab­or­a­tion with Sound­crash, is the end­cap on a year which sees the imprint cel­eb­rat­ing the leg­acy of its pion­eer­ing, far-out spir­it via as-yet-unan­nounced sign­ings, releases and mem­or­able events. Brainfeeder’s ringlead­er, Fly­ing Lotus, is due to debut a brand new iter­a­tion of his crit­ic­ally-acclaimed and cus­tom­ar­ily cut­ting-edge audi­ovisu­al exper­i­ence in 3D at the Brix­ton event. Thun­der­cat, the underground’s most recog­niz­able bass-tot­ing merry-maker, also comes to town after a sold out tour of the world twice over.
After being con­ceived by FlyLo – a trail­blazer in his own right and per­haps the most adven­tur­ous yet on-point artist A&R head of our times – Brain­feed­er has gone on to kick­start the careers of crit­ic­al darlings like Thun­der­cat and Kamasi Wash­ing­ton while influ­en­cing the exper­i­ment­al sound of an entire gen­er­a­tion of young music-makers. As is par for the course with this crew, they’ll be invit­ing some very spe­cial guests yet to be announced which rep the stor­ied past, ener­get­ic present and cos­mic future of the label.
To take this lineup to the next level there will also be full live shows from some of the finest acts on the label includ­ing Ross From Friends, Lap­alux, Dori­an Concept and Iglooghost. Cham­pi­on of the label and 6Music’s finest DJ Gilles Peterson is also on the bill for a set.
The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
