Stealth Techno Special (in association with Nonplus)


BODDIKA (Nonplus)

Al Green has a habit of both reinventing himself and pushing boundaries. As one half of Instra:mental he helped develop a diverse and unique sound that crossed a range of styles and tempos within the drum and bass / electronica sphere. Now as Boddika he has created a raw, energetic and driving persona that instantly garnered support from DJ’s as varied as Ben UFO, Skream, Dixon, Tale of Us, Ryan Elliot, Loefah, Scuba, Deetron & Joy Orbison.

Boddika is inspired by Machine Music and influenced by a range of genres from old school hip hop and electro to Chicago house and Detroit techno and even taking in a bit of 80’s / 90’s dance. To say Green’s influences are varied would be an understatement and that certainly shows in his current productions: in his own words “I just do what I feel like doing when I’m in the studio, and that’s where the music comes from”. In short: it sounds like absolutely nothing else.

As well as solo production Green is the owner at NonPlus - releasing artists such as Four Tet, Joy Orbison, Radio Slave, Kassem Mosse, Skudge, Martyn, Basic Sole Unit and Endian, as well as solo Boddika material. He is also the co-owner alongside long term collaborator Joy Orbison of Sunklo where the duo have released four of their joint works to great acclaim. The labels and collaborations are yet more strings to his bow and mean that Green as Boddika wont be disappearing any time soon.

BJARKI (трип)

In a short space of time, Bjarki has made a huge impression on the dance music world. The young Icelandic producer was first introduced by Nina Kraviz’s acclaimed label Trip, for whom Bjarki is the standout talent. His ‘I Wanna Go Bang’ was one of 2015’s most ubiquitous records, while his RA podcast last year composed entirely out of his own productions - in an audacious move reminiscent of Ricardo Villalobos’ Fabric mix - demonstrated his admirable confidence, and supreme musicianship. Such are Bjarki’s prolific studio skills, that Trip recently announced not one, but three upcoming solo albums from him, comprising 41 tracks altogether, which stretch from dusty breakbeat tracks to richly textured techno and back again. We look foreward to welcoming Bjarki to Stealth on Friday 21st October for his Nottingham debut.
