Electronic Music in Bristol

— 105 upcoming clubnights

Bristol's Electronic Scene

As synthesizers, drum machines and sequencers become more affordable, it’s becoming rare to see live music performances without at least some electronic component. Bands are embracing new technology and unlike the every-band-needs-a-turntablist movement of the 2000’s, synthesizers are here to stay.

At the other end of the spectrum lies electronica and dance music where producers live shows have also hugely benefitted from the increasing access to physical hardware. Gone are the days where a “live” set involved watching a producer awkwardly staring into their laptop pausing for the occasional hit of bit-crush and reverb. From one man shows to co-ordinated digital masterpieces, we are for the first time we’re starting to see electronic producers making truly engaging live shows. James Blake, Mount Kimbie, Flying Lotus, Gold Panda and Luke Abbott are just a few of the artists to bring their MPC’s, patch bays and stunning live shows to Bristol.

If we set dance music to one side, then it’s relatively easy to highlight a few key venues for live electronic music in Bristol. Start The Bus, The Louisiana and The Exchange typically pick up artist’s first live tours while you would want to pick up tickets to The Trinity Centre, The Fleece or Thekla for larger, more established artists.

WHAT OUR EDITORS SAY

Camilla Sparksss is best known for her captivating live performance that combines a unique technique of mixing dub plate (vinyls), synthesisers and cutting vocals. “As an electronic musician coming from a punk background my biggest challenge was to create a physical live experience, by pressing my samples on dub plates I can play them as “real” instruments, the turntables become my guitars”.
Simo Cell is a French rising talent from originary from Nantes. Now Paris-based, this producer differentiates himself by his singular style that melt Uk codes to a wider electronic music background.
Sinead McMillian produces techno full of light and colour as Surgeons Girl. With EPs released via Livity Sound and Inside Out Records, McMillan demonstrates her talent for tailoring interlocking melodies cut between shifting rhythms. Her live sets explore the fundamental elements of electronic music, taking audiences on a journey through sound, rhythm and structure. Surgeons Girl returns to Strange Brew after recent performances for Bristol New Music and support for Lone.
We've teamed up with electronic music producer and AV artist Halina Rice, who'll be leading us through the techniques and technology she employed while building and delivering her NEW WORLDS immersive show. Topics covered will include creating immersive sound in Ableton Live using L-ISA Studio by L-Acoustics, programming lights using DMX and clip automation, and working with mixed reality visuals.
