Few can list a t.A.t.u remix as one of their finest achievements and retain their musical credibility. Yet, like much of techno’s new wave of pioneering producers, no cultural stones lay unturned for Air Max '97 Music. In keeping with Bristol’s own experimental sound, the Melbourne producer spills a diverse pool of influences across his oblique DJ sets, reworking the likes of Bjork, Rihanna, Kelela and even Gangsta Boo into unrecognisable, frenzied mayhem, packed with rhythmic complexity and a floor-heavy focus. Joining the dots between broken beat, bassline, grime and garage, his own productions are dark and twisted amalgams, warping vocal samples into nightmarish yet melancholy textures that call to mind IDM greats such as Burial, Aphex & Autechre.
Don’t miss him alongside Hi5ghost, Zoee, Saaaz and NES$ b2b MUN SING for Illegal Data’s first show of 2019 at The Old England.

Flitting between high-speed acid jams, dark techno pieces and lo-fi electro cuts, Legowelt Music’s live shows are defined by his affinity for the imperfect, crafting off-kilter, oddball breaks that continue to bewilder hardware nerds and ravers alike. Pushing the boundaries of experimental electronics, Danny’s no stranger to synthesis, building his own ‘sentient Star Shepherd’ from scratch.
Catch the electro wizard live in The Loco Klub's cavernous tunnels alongside local talent DJ October and Gallegos for one of French Kiss's most boundary-pushing line-ups yet.
