Clelia Ciardulli – preceding, following and woven throughout.
Two years in gestation, Blood Sport’s latest LP Axe Laid to the Root was released on Blast First Petite (Factory Floor/Nisennenmondai/Mika Vainio) in February. This will be their official release party in Sheffield, channeled through the Hybrid Vigour night that hopes to be a construct embodying their occupation of both the live band and club night realm. As always, expect hi-nrg, relentless, polyrhythmic pulsations.
Melika Ngombe Kolongo aka Nkisi co-runs the label NON Records: a far-reaching label arm of the sovereign state of NON, a community of artists of Africa and of the African diaspora whose citizens reside in villages, towns, and cities across the globe. NON cuts across genre and geography to unite politically and sonically forward-thinking musicians in an ongoing exploration of Pan-African identity in the twenty-first century.
Based in London, Nkisi’s sets explore a contemporary synthesis of hardcore sounds associated with Hamburg’s Doomcore label, embodying the spirit of Belgian New Beat, whilst mutating these sounds through Congolese rhythms. She has recently launched her explorations on a NTS radio show of her own.
Nomadic Female DJ Troupe
The Nomadic Female DJ Troupe are Francine Perry, Lisa Busby and Ruthie Woodward who converge as a roaming collective through the shared use of found, sonic materials within their work. As a group they work site specifically and in an improvised way – ‘popping up’ and undertaking live performances, workshops, and other interventionist actions. In the spirit of inspiring feminist traditions of the second and third wave, their interventions are fluid and pluri-vocal allowing room for anyone to join them at any time.
This will be the debut live performance of the latest incarnation of a collaboration between three individuals integral to Sheffield’s underground music scene. Utilising a myriad collection of hardware, Broken FM create a techno assemblage pounding and intricate in equal measure. Hopefully the first of many an outing by this trio whose collective musical credentials promise that this will be a truly thrilling sonic adventure.
Tickets £5 available from PFTP, £10 OTD.
