Sneaky Petes are throwing a big party at Summerhall to welcome back producer, DJ and label founder Erol Alkan.
This is the third time Erol has played all night long in Edinburgh, after last year’s sell-out party at The Caves (and the one before that at Sneaky Petes), this is another chance to present his unifying and unpredictable vision of club culture from open to close.
On a winding musical journey that has seen Alkan thrive as a producer, chameleonic remixer and radio host, from the era of seminal club ‘Trash’ to the present day, his spiritual home has been in the DJ booth.
Few in the field of explorative ambient music have remained as questing and unclassifiable as Canadian composer Tim Hecker. The experiential composer’s ninth official full-length, Konoyo was largely recorded during several trips to Japan where he collaborated with members of the gagaku ensemble Tokyo Gakuso, in a temple on the outskirts of Tokyo.
The Sun Ra Arkestra, under the able direction of altosaxophonist Marshall Allen since Sun Ra left the planet in 1993, returns to Edinburgh in April.
ENDERNESS, A.A. Bondy’s first album in eight years, was finished the day before a wildfire burned his house down. He recorded and played everything himself. Fat Possum will release on May 10.
