Friday 23 February 2024

This event has passed.

A night of intoxicating music with some of the most exciting voices in the UK’s electronic music scene.

Part of LGBTQ+ History Month with Paris is Burning and Divina de Campo. Book 2 events 10% discount, 3 events 12.5% discount.

We begin with a screening of Lisa Rovner’s award-winning documentary Sisters with Transistors, the remarkable untold story of electronic music’s female pioneers, composers who embraced machines and their liberating technologies to utterly transform how we produce and listen to music today.

“Sisters With Transistors is more than a music documentary. It’s a long overdue tribute to the women that broke barriers in music, technology, and society as a whole.”
– The Art Desk

After the film we open the floor late into the night for three live sets in the first of our HAR Late series.

Loula Yorke is an award-winning composer, improviser and live performer working primarily with a modular synthesiser. Yorke’s dynamic and ever-fluid practice draws a line between music, activism and live art. She’ll be performing work from her new album, Volta.

NikNak, a trailblazing artist with a diverse repertoire, has mesmerised audiences globally through her experimental albums, remixes, and captivating performances. As the first Black Turntablist to win the esteemed Oram Award in 2020, she continues to innovate across multiple genres and music platforms/roles.

Gracie T is a DJ, creative and teacher, and has been drawing attention from across the globe. Part of the Northern music scene since 2018 and with a residency on BBC Asian Network. Gracie T spins whatever they want, drawing from an eclectic selection of electronic dance music and percussive influences from their 14 years as a drummer.
