  • ORKA's new cassette EP <13 is out July 5th. Come down to Rye Wax in Peckham, London and celebrate with us and see ORKA perform alongside the amazing Daniel Cherney, IYDES and DJ Ben Osborne! The origins of ORKA date back a decade, when the act began crafting their own handmade instruments out of agricultural tools on a small farm in the Faroe Islands. From those humble beginnings, ORKA have created a bold, cathartic electronic sound that has earned them fans around the world and two nominations for the Nordic Council Music Prize. https://www.orkaonline.com/ ✞ "A unique force in music" - Complete Music Update ✞ "This is easily one of the most individual and exciting acts to appear in a long time" - Clash Music ✞ "ORKA are hard. They produce industrial vibes and possess a menacing intensity” - The Quietus Daniel Cherney is a Czech born, London based musician and producer. Previously released at Squareglass, Daniel Cherney currently runs his own night at Dalston Superstore, djs under the pseudonym Prince Of Deptford and performs as a bass player of Alpha Maid. https://soundcloud.com/danielcherney Londoner Joe Brooks, pka IYDES, having debuted via Dandelion Lotus Records in 2014 and following-up his GETME! release in 2015, is now joining the Infinite Machine fam via an ebullient self-titled EP. A regular of the London club scene, a DIS Magazine favorite and co-curator of the Tropical Waste parties and NTS sets alongside Mixmag digital editor Seb Wheeler, he herein embarks on an exploration of discordant riddim and tropical subversions. https://soundcloud.com/iydes Ben Osborne is a DJ, writer, producer and founder of Noise of Art. He has a long running association with French, UK and Berlin music scenes. Time Out says Ben Osborne’s DJ sets see “techno, funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite do the rounds” and a Guardian live review described a Noise of Art show as: “An actual cathedral of Sound”. One of his current projects, inspired by the history of French electronic music has been featured in The Guardian, Time Out (London), DJ Magazine, Mixmag and several other publications. It begins a tour of France in July, prefigured by a 'Disco Breaks It' in Paris on 24 June.
