Episode 40: Dave Clarke

An extraordinary renegade talent, Dave’s carved a career playing and making the finest underground electronic music charged with unrelenting energy and a punk ethos. Dave’s influential album ‘Archive One’ was released in 1995 to critical acclaim - listed as one of John Peel’s top 20 albums of all time. This was followed up with 2003’s ‘Devils Advocate’ which continued to showcase his dedication to musical diversity laced with an incendury spirit.

In 2001, he released the World Service Techno/Electro mixes, which are as integral to the scene today as they were then. He subsequently released a follow up before ‘The Desecration Of Desire’ came out in 2017. His live sets are legendary - hear him play every week during his radio show on RTE which has over 800 episodes.

Episode 41: John Grant

John came into the limelight with his band the Czars who started out in 1994. He released his first solo album ‘Queen Of Denamrk’ in 2010 which was named album of the year by Mojo magazine. John has an immense ability to write heartfelt songs with a combination of profound and humourous themes.

His subsequent albums ‘Pale Green Ghosts’, ‘Grey Tickles and Black Pressure’ and ‘Love is Magic’ have all showcased his talents as a supreme singer, songwriter and self-confessed synth-lover! His latest album ‘Boy From Michigan’ was released in June this year and sounds fantastic - I highly recommend you see him on tour later this year!

Kyoka is a supremely talented sound artist and musician who fuses her love of sound with experiments in Physics, Neuroscience and more. She was the first female solo artist on the Raster-Noton label and had access to the EMS Studio in Sweden where she was introduced to Buchla synths.

She's known for her frantic, highly articulate sounds which combine foley recordings and fragmented vocals alongside a sporadic rhythm track. She was on the bill for the Warehouse Project in Manchester, curated by Aphex Twin, and she recently collaborated with Ian from Lakker under the name 'Lena Anderson'.

Episode 43: AK/DK

AK/DK are like nothing you've seen before. Two people each armed with a drum kit, a million synths and the desire to make it all (mostly) up on the spot. They create a hypnotic frezy of sound, energy, and what I'm calling "vibes" to enchant and delight their now very sweaty audiences.

They've released three albums to critical acclaim, with 2020's 'Shared Particles' showcasing and encapsulating their high-octane live sound better than ever. Their incendury live shows are not to be missed. Witness their ascent to superstardom from October, when they get back on tour!
