The first official showcase for Powell's Diagonal imprint...
DIAGONAL | is a small but, so far, fairly well formed entity that has
drawn praise from far and wide thanks to label founder Powell’s two EPs,
both of which mashed a host of peculiar influences into new modes of
dancefloor expression. This year, new artists enter the fold, and Powell
will use the Waiting Room’s infamous basement as a chance to air their
BLOOD MUSIC | a violent outfit that exploits pummelling drum machines, noise
guitar, harsh electronics and voice, will take to the stage in advance of
their hugely anticipated Blood Music EP. Led by Simon Pomery, the band
haven’t appeared in London for nearly a year, since they supported My Disco at the
much-talked-about Quietus night at the Lexington. Expect to have your head
RUSSELL HASWELL | also new to Diagonal, will be reaching for similar ends,
albeit by different means. Armed with a modular system and God knows what
else, Russell will be exploring new rhythm-based material that’s been
prepared for the label and is due out later in the year.
The rest of the night will be led by POWELL and special guest DJ, RAIME, both of whom will
use turntables and wax to explore the outer reaches of the label’s
influences — and entice whatever manoeuvres they can from anyone who cares
to listen. Party time.
