The Sacred Rage, an all-star compilation for Beirut, as Lebanese fundraisers find an audience

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Wed 12 Aug 2020 1:03 pm

When words fail, perhaps there is music. Morphine Records dropped its compilation The Sacred Rage last night, a profoundly personal LP. And even with a storm of crises the world over, these projects find receptive music lovers. On this moment, and the music it is assembling:

One to watch: Otta

Delivered... Jude Rogers | Scene | Sat 8 Aug 2020 2:00 pm

The Finnish-British musician’s compelling electronic pop recalls early Björk, the Radiophonic Workshop and more…

Otta is a Finnish-British singer-songwriter from south London whose electronic pop songs are bright, sharp and strange. On her new EP, Songbook, they have a compelling DIY fidgetiness about them – hardly surprisingly, given that she records much of her material in her home studio: “a cupboard-under-the-stairs-meets-shed”, she explains, “but still a precious altar”.

Moving to the UK when she was five, Otta first dreamt of being a professional drummer, starting lessons at seven. In her teens, acoustic guitars and Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy inspired her to write songs (she’d do this in her bathroom), and at 16 she won a place at the Brit School, which introduced her to jazz and electronic production. These elements inform her sound now, as do additional details from producer Kwes (Solange, Loyle Corner, Nubya Garcia), who discovered Otta on SoundCloud and signed her to his own label, Bokkle.

Throbbing Gristle, ATP 2004: a gateway to a strange other England

Delivered... Luke Turner | Scene | Wed 5 Aug 2020 3:31 pm

An encounter with the British industrialists opened not only a world of music and underground culture but a whole new way of living

By the winter of 2004, the Pontins holiday camp at Camber Sands had seen better days. Barely updated since its 1970s heyday, the bleak chalets, roamed by the ghosts of Bluecoats, were an appropriate setting for Throbbing Gristle’s comeback.

In the late 70s, the band had held up a mirror to a seamy, degraded Britain ruled by corrupt authorities and mired in industrial decline, with lyrics about the Moors murders and political control, and stage outfits made of army-surplus gear. Musically, their use of samplers and abstract sound made them pioneers. After they terminated their initial phase of operation in 1981, none of the industrial artists who later cited them as an influence – Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails – came close to their radical sonics and social commentary.

Electronic at the Design Museum review – a sweaty rave paradise lost

Delivered... Dorian Lynskey | Scene | Tue 28 Jul 2020 4:33 pm

Design Museum, London
From squat synthesisers to a gyrating cube, a new exhibition dedicated to dance music culture poignantly brings the spirit of communal celebration to a museum

One of the first items you see upon entering the Design Museum’s ambitious new history of electronic music is a vast Andreas Gursky photograph of ravers in Dusseldorf in 1995. Electronic debuted at the Philharmonie de Paris last year and this expanded, anglicised version was meant to open in April, but subsequent events have rendered the curators’ efforts to represent electronic music’s fans as well as its practitioners unexpectedly poignant. A scenario that was commonplace for 30 years is suddenly unattainable: a sweaty paradise lost. Social distancing hasn’t just changed the layout of the exhibition but its emotional resonance. It’s just a shame that there’s no mention of masked rave duo Altern-8 now that every museum-goer resembles them.

Musicians from Daphne Oram to Chemical Brothers feature in a show organised under coronavirus restrictions

With the sour tang of dry ice, pounding dance music and more strobe lights in one room than are normally on the main stage of Glastonbury it may finally be an opportunity for some hedonism. With strict social distancing and hand sanitisation, of course.

“It’s not for the faint-hearted,” designer Adam Smith said of the sensory Chemical Brothers experience he has created with his studio partner Marcus Lyall. “We were trying to bring some of the visceral feeling you get from a live show into a different setting.”
