It’s a festival mix!

Here we have a very special Was Ist Das? Soundsystem mix with the entire mix tracklist being based around the line-up. The entire line-up. Somehow it all slotted together.

Another change

So another announcement to make – Lutine unfortunately can’t make the festival but we will endeavour to get them up in the valley some other time. We had a chat among ourselves and quickly concluded that the spot had to be filled by The New Sound of Leeds – GUTTERSNIPE.

They are a duo consisting of Etai Keshiki member, Bobby, and Arcane Pariah Records owner, Gretchen, Guttersnipe describe themselves as the “New Wave of British Hysterical Mania”. They play super harsh high frequency guitar and electronics with massive amounts of energy in a similar spirit to that of Melt Banana and Fat Worm of Error.

Although Guttersnipe haven’t been formed all that long they have already gained a great live show reputation wowing Leeds noise community audiences and they were described in this month’s Wire Magazine as “crypto-punk terrorists” by Alex Neilson.

This will be ace.

A Slight Change

Unfortunately,due to a schedule clash, Ashtray Navigations have had to pull out of their Sunday night slot. It goes without saying that we are sad to lose them and Was Ist Das? will try to bring them to the valley as soon as possible.

Stepping up to the breach we have David Colohon with his Raising Holy Sparks project from Ireland. Recently described as “stirring spacerock magick” by The Quietus and who are we to argue? Judge for yourself:


Apologies to anyone who tried to access the website this morning. The billing address gremlins have been exposed to direct sinlight and have now all exploded.
