With their phenomenal new album 'Elektrac' out 10th March on Warp Records, Squarepusher’s extraordinary live band Shobaleader One will headline Village Underground for Convergence 2017.
Featuring bandleader Squarepusher on bass, Strobe Nazard on keys, Arg Nution on guitar, and Company Laser on drums, Shobaleader One will deliver choice tunes from the Squarepusher catalogue featuring classics from albums like Hard Normal Daddy and Music Is Rotted One Note. This is an experience no Squarepusher devotee or adventurous music fan should miss.
“A crashing assault….and a danceable trip to the peripherals of electronic music” Resident Advisor
"Shobaleader One, gear shifting virtuosos whose fidegty jazz and fusion-esque bass acrobatics continues the breakneck sonic assault." London in Stereo
Special guest Kode9 vibrates parts other DJs can only dream of. His DJ sets and radio shows helped spread the early dubstep sound internationally, but his sets now weave together a bass heavy mix of house, garage, dubstep, grime, footwork and hip hop.
Support comes from unique, multi-instrumentalists, Flamingods. Described as “Eastern and African flavours sieved through psychedelic prisms of pulsating neon and flickering campfires, think Goat meets Tinariwen at Hawkwind’s BBQ” ahead of their appearance at Glastonbury Festival last year, Flamingods are not to be missed.
“An explosion of instruments from all over the world and genres that shouldn’t quite go together…Flamingods sound like nothing else right now”. DAZED
