Poejazzi favourites LV (Hyperdub/Keysound) alongside collaborator Benin City frontman Joshua Idehen (Audio Doughnuts) will be supporting South Africa’s finest MC (and one of the world’s coolest in general) Spoek Mathambo.
“with haunting lyrics about conflict diamonds, penned by Mathambo’s wife Ana Rab (aka Gnucci Bananaa), fleshing out the verses into an epic, synth-driven post-dubstep heater.”
LV & Joshua Idehen released Routes last year and was cited as one of both Mixmag and Fact magazines’ “Albums of the Year”. This whole line up, including the duo 14th, is too sick for words: if you haven’t been out in a while then this is where you need to reignite, if you’re a gig junkie then this is the one you don’t want to not be able to talk about come Monday morning. Spoek is known for his startling soundscapes (as well as the visuals that accompany them) and the support are a rare perfect fit (not an afterthought but a match.com worthy match I tell you!) Be there or be truly broken inside. (Are you going to watch Eastenders or watch the most forward thinking and yet danceable to music you may ever see in the UK…and anyway there’s always the omnibus!!) Buy tickets here
