“Logos […] makes music with supreme restraint that seems to unfold with an almost meditative calm, every silence, every reverb tail painstakingly considered.” – Pitchfork.com, 2013
The Wooozy Offline lads are back after a cracking debut year. They rinsed the dancefloors of our favorite clubs, bringing credible names from across the electro spectrum including NYTA, Nguzunguzu, Bok Bok and Untold. Now they’re back, and they’re ready to shatter your eardrums.
Logos is a London-based artist who creates spacious and hypnotic grime and club influenced electronic music. He emerged after a long period submerged in the UK underground with his future-bound take on the original grime ‘devil mix’ concept in 2012 via his Kowloon EP which came out on Keysound Recordings. Logos forms one quarter of the crew who promote the London night “Boxed” which launched in 2013 to lead the charge for forward-thinking instrumental grime amongst an emerging worldwide group of producers and DJs.
2014 saw Logos collaborate with Mumdance (who joined Wooozy Offline for killer shows in Guangzhou and Shanghai late last year) to found the label Different Circles. Their first release, Weightless Vol. 1 sold out within days of release and saw the pair present a collection of spatially untethered club tracks from six worldwide producers. Expect a full-length compilation of new club-focused tracks from the duo in early 2015 on Tectonic.
“The techno equivalent of driving along a picturesque coastline: the view is constantly changing, but it’s just as beautiful every time you look.”
– Resident Advisor, 2014
FORMA’s combustible mixture of lush synth explorations and frenetic rhythm has captivated the margins of the international synth scene since their acclaimed 2011 debut on John Elliot’s Spectrum Spools label. Following 2012’s dark and penetrating OFF/ON, the trio set a direct course toward the shadowy perimeter of the dance floor, with John Also Bennett replacing original member Sophie Lam. 2014’s Cool Haptics EP (their debut for The Bunker New York) brought FORMA into the view of techno and house devotees in New York and around the world.
FORMA’s celebrated live performances – described as extended improvisational journeys veering from the ecstatic to the foreboding while maintaining a command over the dance floor – draw techno, noise, and synth disciples into their realm and feel equally at home in a club environment, rock venue or DIY space.
