Gary Numan and Ade Fenton’s new album ‘Dead Son Rising’ is set for release on 5th September this year, from what we’ve heard this promises to be exciting material. Having recently worked with Battles, Gary Numan and Ade Fenton are certainly a major force to be reckoned with in today’s British electronic music industry. Their previous sell out shows with THE PLAYGROUND have been a raging success, and with this line up, the July 2nd show is sure to be the same.
The XOYO event will also be hosting Drums Of Death. Scotland-born producer Colin Bailey emerged from the London club scene after being snapped up by Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) and Alex Waldron to join their record label ‘Greco-Roman Records’ and has since remixed artists such as Hot Chip, Tricky, Franz Ferdinand, Mando Diao, James Yuill, Steve Mason, Alphabeat and Mika. At this exciting event, Drums of Death will be performing with a live band behind him, its definitely going to get loud.
Cyberpunkers will take a supporting slot in this eclectic, electric line-up. Cyberpunkers are two very talented and incredibly edgy producers hailing from Italy. Despite the band’s presence in the electronic scene for a number of years, Cyberpunkers have never played in the UK before. This debut performance is certainly one to get excited about.
Further support at this event comes from Without My Medicine, a band who are known for their energetic and lively shows. Fusing punk energy with futuristic synths, this band are sure to add to the electric atmosphere that will surround this event.
XOYO attendees will also be graced with performances from Kites, Neurotic Mass Movement, Fish Don’t Dance, Punx Soundcheck, The Coolness and The Dirty Toyz. This is certainly a line up not to be missed.
XOYO can be found at 32-37 Cowper Street, London, EC2A 4AP. Doors open at 9pm and tickets are on sale now via www.theplayground.co.uk.
