Samuel Kerridge has garnered a dedicated following for his expertly executed slow churning industrial techno, fusing Sunn O)))-like walls of drone with the chug of heavy machinery. Kerridge produces a stark, skeletal vision of techno, often bending 4/4 conventions into more forceful sounds. Influenced by post-punk and doomy drone as well as underground dance music, Kerridge harnesses their power through efficiency. Following his 2013 debut LP «A Fallen Empire» and 2014 EP «Deficit of Wonder», Kerridge released his sophomore LP «Always Offended Never Ashamed» as the launch of his CONTORT label in early 2015, an evolution from his infamous Berlin party series.
The «Fatal Light Attraction» LP was released on Downwards earlier this year, with an A/V show which debuted at Berlin Atonal, and amplified the crushing power he exerts to new extremes. At Ekko we will experience this show, which is made in collaboration with Andrej Boleslavský and Mária Júdová.
