“I strive to make music that will hopefully stand the test of time. Whether that happens remains to be seen but I feel as though simplicity is underrated sometimes. And simplicity never goes out of style.” – Blockhead
This show is a real feast of the cosmic grade for all the fans of club music and lovers of night club life.
The boundaries between genres have fallen away. Blockhead from New York has required a growing reputation. Over the course of seven highly respected albums and his long association with Ninja Tune Records his sound has evolved from sample heavy Hip Hop influenced instrumentals to vocally charged and beat driven dance music.
Consistently one of the finest beat -makers and electronic producers, catering for cool kids and party monsters alike, Blockhead drops his first vocal album “free sweat pants” in January 2019…full with guests of the likes of Logic, Homeboy Sandman, Aesop Rock and many more.

As an active piece to the sound design elements of legendary MC Aesop Rock and a body of solo records with Ninja Tune that is already decade defining in its genre, Blockhead has always been one of our favorite hip hop – electronic producers since his inception as a professional musician. His music career has always been about unique pathways into the ethos of hip hop production music but he taps into a grid of sound that is all engulfing and expansive in past and present eras, bridging many modes of sound from all over the world with lush bass lines and classic break-beats always on deck. It’s a beautiful world of music that he’s produced since his 2003 debut LP Music By Cavelight and he returned in 2015 with the announcement of his 6th LP Bells and Whistles. Bells and Whistles released through digital formats and a vinyl version.
