Powell brings his “fun and playful” LP to life in Dalston later this week.
Taking place at Club Makossa in Dalston, the party kicks off at 9pm and features a live set from Powell alongside appearances from two close friends and collaborators: Russell Haswell and Lorenzo Senni.
Noise veteran Haswell will bring his modular synth for one of his brain-scrubbing live sets, while trance-loving Italian artist Senni will provide a DJ set. According to XL Recordings, dress code is “sports gear or no entry.”
Tickets for the event can be bought at the freshly launched Powell store, which also includes some Powell-branded sporting goods. Highlights include a “Powell Towell” embroidered with the album’s colours that “attracts people with good taste,” chest expander and wetsuit among the usual T-shirts.
You can also pick up album track ‘Her Face’, “a Powell track you can mix” with “basic 4 x 4 structure for all the newbie DJs” that’s “perfect for a Ray-Ban online session.”
Speaking of the album back in August, Powell said: “It’s not a techno record, a dance album, a ‘no-wave techno’ thing, whatever the fuck that is. It’s just the sound of what goes in my head.
“Also, like sport, I think of this record as being something for mind and body. I mean, you’re shit at sport if you don’t bring both things to it, so yeah, the music is physical and you can dance to it, but I also want to drag people’s brains along for the ride too.”
