The Death of Rave’s Friday night LCMF programme skews a line from ambient-pop to EBM via black metal, Detroit techno and computer music. Special guest, Spanish DJ and industrial/pop producer Jasss makes her highly anticipated London club DJ debut after critical acclaim of her Weightless album and raved-about sets in Europe & Africa. Black Mecha, alias of Saskatchewan’s Fortress Crookedjaw (Wold), will present the EU premiere of his Black Metal Techno, or ‘Mentation Electronics’ project, and Motor City techno producer Howard Thomas, aka H-Fusion (Sound Signature, Transmat), will DJ in advance of his debut LP, due for The Death of Rave in 2019.

Qualmbient-pop artist Teresa Winter performs material from her cultishly adored albums, Untitled Death and What The Night Is For. Computer musician Gabor Lázár presents the London premiere of his scything A/V set after acclaimed EU tour dates in support of his Unfold LP, and Mancunia’s Croww clashes vantablack and neon rave musicks in a visceral new live show. DJs Beatrice Dillon and TDoR founder Conor Thomas join the dots of a rare celebration of diversity and mutuality at the periphery of the contemporary dance and electronic music paradigms.

Since releasing their 2012 vinyl edition of Mark Leckey’s Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore soundtrack, The Death of Rave have published original music by a spectrum of sound shapers including Sam Kidel, Mark Fell, Gábor Lázár, Teresa Winter, Rian Treanor, Black Mecha, Nozomu Matsumoto, Delroy Edwards, Croww, and Powell, among others.
