Organ Thing Of The Day: EKOPLEKZ at Cafe Oto tonight…. Nick Edwards’ Ekoplekz project can be founding buzzing, fizzing and fuzzing at London’s ever excellent Cafe Oto tonight… here’s w hat the Oto people have to say on the matter….
“Over the last five years and spanning thirty plus releases on labels including Punch Drunk, Editions Mego, Public Information, and most recently Planet Mu, Nick Edwards’ Ekoplekz project has developed a unique sound drawing on dub, early 90s Warp, noise and early electronics. These influences are combined with a dedication to analog electronics and diy instrumentation, bringing a rawness and immediacy to his sound and performances. In the early 2000s, Edwards authored the Gutterbreakz blog, which provided a space of critical discussion central to Bristol’s burgeoning dubstep and electronic scene. The website is now an archive, the last post simply declaring ‘the place where shit used to happen.’ Brood Ma is the musical alias of artist James B Stringer. Brood Ma is a fractured, cybergothic nexus of tropes from weird literature, dystopian rave and high technology, presented in longform performances and recordings that resemble crisis scenarios as much as electronic mixes”.
