Hodge and Mor Elian play their second back to back session at The Black Swan this month, following an explosive first encounter in London last November. A pioneer of the ‘Bristol sound’ that’s taken techno by storm, Hodge returns home after his latest release for Livity Sound with Laurel Halo. A staggering showcase of high-speed, rolling techno, the EP’s trippy synths flicker against backdrops of dubby, washed-out textures and grating industrial rhythms.
Like her counterpart, Israeli-born selector Mor Elian wears her influences on her sleeve, fusing electro, rave and acid influences. Sparks will fly when these these two experimental talents collide at Method LAB on 25th Jan with Metrist and Akiko Haruna in support.

Parisian selector Raphael Top-Secret brings a packed bag of dancefloor obscurities to Lakota - Bristol for the first of Deep Discs’ 2019 Spring Series. A close affiliate of Music From Memory boss Jamie Tiller, the selector’s oddball sensibilities saw him enlisted to co-curate the label’s 2017’s Uneven Paths compilation, whilst his afro edit ‘Owhaaou!’ made a star appearance on Hunee’s seminal Hunchin All Night comp in 2018.
Drawing from an extensive pool of wide-reaching influences, Raphael’s DJ sets inject a dose of summer sunshine to the darkest of winter nights, spanning from lilting lover’s rock to pumping disco cuts, balearic warmers and unknown 80s house gems.
