WALLS are a band from London made up of members Sam Willis and Alessio Natalizia.
WALLS’ natural combination of guitar play and haunting vocals together with emotive synth lines, sample manipulation and vintage drum machine magic is a match made in heaven, gaining them DJ support from the likes of James Holden, Michael Mayer, Four Tet and Caribou.
The Kompakt duo’s self-titled debut LP was released last year to widespread acclaim, receiving 9/10 in the NME, praise from Resident Advisor and Pitchfork, and the coveted title of Mojo Electronica Album Of The Year.
WALLS tightrope the fine line between the headphones and the club to remarkable lengths, Their lack of concern for boundaries is reflected in their DJ sets, taking in the diverse array of genres and styles that inform their original productions with an eye directly on the dancefloor.
Drog A Tek is a Greek band possessed by the same sense of discovery, curiosity and an ingenious sense of musical playfulness that make them ideal openers of this electronic night.
The ambitious collective of Paranormale (various instruments), Voltnoi (rhythms/laptop), Stmc (trumpet), Nunu (guitars), Quetempo (bass) and Electroware (production music/keyboards/engineering) already counts ten years of wandering across the urban landscape and noisy streets in search of a new musical language.
Totally committed to the sound lectern of narration and they beat aesthetics, they use feelings and fragments of everyday life to create a new form of “dirty pop” that sometimes hauntingly, sometimes shockingly converts ephemeral materials into life, value and personality.
