This Friday East London venue XOYO plays host to a new night called BleeD, and with it one of the most smartly curated music line-ups to hit the city in recent memory.
Headlining the event is Oni Ayhun, the (ahem) anonymous purveyor of eldritch techno who has become one of this year’s most buzzed acts. Dan Lopatin Oneohtrix Point Never will also perform live, conjuring vast electronic vistas from his array of analogue synthesizers, drawing upon influences from German kosmische, 80s pop and new age psychedelia in pursuit of what he describes as “sacred time”.
Teengirl Fantasy, whose 7AM is one of the year’s most captivating albums, will perform their unique brand of sloppy, spirited house music, while New York’s Veronica Vasicka, boss of Minimal Wave and queen of all things kohl-eyed and synthesized, will be flying in to spin records from her enviable collection – for an idea of what to expect, check out her FACT mix, premiered last week. Support comes from Casper C, Benedict Bull and Andrew Thomson. More info and tickets (priced at £9) here.
We’ve actually got a pair of free tickets to give away for this unmissable party, and if you fancy getting your mitts on them, you need to e-mail your name and the word ‘Bleed’ to us at email@example.com, sharpish. The winner will be notified by 9pm on Thursday.
