Bleed presents... Chris Madak (AKA Bee Mask)

  • ** Please note, all ticket purchasers to this event can also attend the Spectrum Spools showcase on February 5th. Anybody who has already bought tickets to both will be refunded - ** We're pleased to announce the return of Chris Madak, AKA Bee Mask, for a second London show, following an early 2013 appearance at Cafe OTO alongside Vessel. 2012 and 2013 represented a break-out 12 months for Madak, touring throughout North America, Australia, Japan, and Europe off the back of the Spectrum Spools released "When We Were Eating Unripe Pears:, delivering mercurial and information-dense live sets at storied parties and festivals including The Bunker, Labyrinth, Optimo, and Unsound. Meanwhile, his productions were adopted to devastating effect by adventurous DJs including Peter van Hoesen, Ben UFO, and of course, Donato Dozzy, who produced 2013′s acclaimed Donato Dozzy Plays Bee Mask for Spectrum Spools, a suite of seven reworks of “Vaporware.” The Italian techno veteran’s re-flipping Bee Mask’s flip of a vocal by art-pop chanteur Autre Ne Veut offers as elegant a depiction as any of Madak’s simultaneously central and improbable position amid the currents of contemporary sound at a moment in which the distinction between head music and body music has ceased to apply, a transformation celebrated by the recent launch of the private press 12″ imprint, Pear Growers Series, whose first release, featuring remixes of Bee Mask material by Surgeon and Abdulla Rashim will be available in December 2013. The legendary Corsica Studios rig provides the perfect platform for Madak's music to be heard and felt, and this is sure to be an evening of intense euphoria and transcendence. Support on the night comes from the Berlin based, Not Not Fun associated Moon Wheel. Soon to be appearing at Berlin's prestigious CTM festival, this will be a UK debut performance.
