Here’s more about the artists on this year’s lineup:
NATHAN FAKE: A rare UK show from Nathan Fake, who has been creating some of the most forward-thinking electronica of the past ten years, culminating in his latest album on Ninja Tune, which sees him reaching ” dizzying new heights while remaining unmistakably one step ahead” (Bleep).
JK FLESH: Nothing short of a legend, we’re thrilled to welcome Justin Broadrick, the genius behind Godflesh, Jesu and some of the most progressive experimental music of the last 20 years to Audioscope at last, bringing the crushing and unrelenting beats of JK Flesh with him.
THE KVB: Like a hazily remembered dream, the KVB blend reverb-soaked shoegaze with minimalist electronic production to create their delicate and ephemeral sound. For fans of vintage synths, 80s soundtracks, Ladytron, Add N To (X) and shoegaze walls of sound – all the good things in life, basically.
DANIEL O’SULLIVAN: Grumbling Fur and Ulver mainman Daniel O’Sullivan showcases his wonderfully rich, magical solo work on new album “Veld” in this one-off, intimate performance.
SEX SWING: Featuring members of Earth, Part Chimp, Mugstar and more, Sex Swing are the abrasive, confrontational supergroup that the UK music scene has been crying out for. An unmissable force of noise.
R. SEILIOG: One listen to Welsh wunderkind R. Seiliog’s album “In Hz” was enough for us to book him on the spot for Audioscope – it’s the perfect blend of krautrock grooves, frenetic electronica and pure rhythmic addiction.
JULY SKIES: Lush, pastoral post-rock, hauntology and avant-folk inspired by “pylons across fields, abandoned airfields,, old Ordnance Survey maps, lost airmen and test card music of the 1970s & 80s”.
MASIRO: One of our favourite Oxford bands right now, playing a mix of complex, polyrhythmic math-rock and uncompromising thug-rock. A real afternoon wake-up call.
