Bleed presents... Opal Tapes vs Public Information

  • BleeD present a meeting of minds between two of the most vital record labels currently operating in the UK. OPAL TAPES | have released a dizzying array of cassette and digital releases of late, bringing names such as Lumigraph, 1991, Prostitutes, Huerco S and Tuff Sherm to wider attention. No over-arching aural aesthetic pervades, but a consistent off-kilter quality remains present throughout, thanks to the keen curatorial eye of label head Stephen 'Basic House' Bishop. Their line-up for the inaugral label showcase includes 'cryptic tape melt murk' producer Wanda Group and Basic House himself. PUBLIC INFORMATION | Infused with the pioneering spirit of the Radiophonic Workshop, Public Information has emerged in the last two years or so as a force to be reckoned with in the experimental, dare we say, dance hinterlands, although their vision is not limited to such primal endeavours. Finds such as No UFO's, Austin Cesear and Acteurs have characterised the label as true magpies of the electronic world, with more well-worn names such as Ekoplekz and Chris Carter also making it a home from home. Forthcoming PI artist IVVVO, who already has an Opal Tapes release under his hat, will be playing a headline DJ set tonight, with Nochexxx also playing a special A/V all-dubplates set. Resident Advisor 'Label Of The Month' article : BleeD resident DJ, Volte-Face, will also be warming up. He contributed a recent mix to Dummy :
