Ascend is a new series of events dedicated to pushing up and coming DJs. For our fourth party at the basement of The Ladybird Bar in Islington, we've invited the London-based online magazine Stray Landings to showcase their sound.
...is not afraid of the weird and wonderful, the dark and ominous, the raw and abrasive. Run by Theo, George and Robert, together their passion for writing and ability to scout unique talent in the dark and experimental corners of the underground electronic music world has taken their platform from a blog to new heights. Through their reviews, podcasts, interviews and releases, they have dedicated their platform to bringing forward thinking new producers to light. As top selectors, these guys will be rattling the basement with their mind-bending record bags.
Chosen by Stray Landings to head up the night, Airsilk represents their sound completely. Expect heavy, crunching techno and broken beat rhythms tearing up the basement.
