***Please note, Club AU this month is taking place as an early show in The Bunker, Lavery’s.***

CLUB AU VS STATE.IE PRESENTS:

SUPER EXTRA BONUS PARTY
SPACE DIMENSION CONTROLLER
DEFCON

LAVERY’S, BELFAST
SATURDAY MAY 23
DOORS 8PM, ADM £5

SUPER EXTRA BONUS PARTY
Kildare’s 14-legged whirlwind blasted out of leftfield last year to take the Choice Music Prize for their self-titled debut album, with follow-up Night Horses – featuring hip-hop heavyweights Cadence Weapon and Mr. Lif – on the shelves this month. Their breathless gigs bear comparison to The Go! Team – a riot of noise and colour, the seven members bounding around the stage and forcing a reaction. This is a rare chance to see the band up close and in your face on the Lavery’s stage.

SPACE DIMENSION CONTROLLER
Electro cadet Space Dimension Controller (or Mr. 8040, or just Jack) channels a short lifetime immersed in electronica of many stripes, as well as a healthy fetishism of old hardware, to make you party like it’s 1983. His debut album Unidentified Flying Oscillator, a free (uh-huh) download from www.acroplane.org, shows off the chops he has developed recording all manner of tunes as RL/VL, but SDC is an entity all of its own. With a live show full of thudding beats, crisp minimalism, acidic synth lines and even the odd bit of electro-rap, retrofuturism never sounded so good.

DEFCON

A graduate of the Red Bull Music Academy (like Hudson Mohawke, Flying Lotus and TRG among others) when it hit Toronto in 2007, Belfast’s Connor Dougan is an electronic producer of rare pedigree. Citing influences from Squarepusher and Boxcutter to Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and John Coltrane, as well as those peers mentioned above, his complex, sample-heavy tunes are food for the ears as well as the feet. And with a dazzling live show featuring live keys and turntablism as well as some nifty laptop trickery, he’s soon to be well established among Ireland’s electronic elite.
