SAT 12TH / F15 & GET TA FRANCE PRESENT SOIL CREEP/NAIVE TED/DJ MEK/ JOE LEE’S F15’S FESTIVAL PUB
SOIL CREEP is Irish producer Aidan Wall, also the proprietor of tape and zine imprint Long Lost Records. His music is a slipstream exploration of the emerging form of post-pop production; eccentric lo-fi beats and synths swirl variously around Wall’s voice, loops, and sampled vocals, with a few enigmatic interludes. While his debut ‘Small Death’ experimented heavily with tone, texture, etc., His second, True Enough has an even more assured color and flow. Recorded half while Wall studied abroad in Germany and half at home in Dublin, the tracks draw more directly than any of his past work on the influence of German techno and house music. Nonetheless, Wall’s latest bears his Irish home heavily in mind, born in part from meditations on the flight of the country’s youth.
NAIVE TED once described as Galway skratch royalty from years back, co-founder of Community Skratch Music; left leg of turntable quartet Vince Mack Mahon; Flying Buttress; melangeur of folk music and rackety beats into an alchemical sludge that has to be heard to be believed. After some low key solo releases and many productions with partner Deviant, Ted finally came out from the shadows to perform live at Community Skratch Games 2014. His most notable appearances to date have been as part of the God Knows and MynameisjOhn tour as well as an infamous excursion to the Community Skratch BBQ in Brighton. Naive Ted’s debut LP, ‘The Inevitable Heel Turn’ is a dense kaleidoscope of muted technicolour where shy aggression sits alongside paranoid bliss. A caress in a choke hold with surreal psychedelic hip hop.
