2016 marked the launch of our involvement in the Uniqlo Tate Lates series, held at the Tate Modern on the last Friday of each month. NTS has been filling out the Tanks ever since combining music with visual accompaniment, projected onto the walls. Micachu and Coby Sey blessed our first night at the Tate with a really special four-hour back to back set.
Definitely one of the best things we put on all year - bringing Destiny Frasqueri a.k.a Princess Nokia to Corsica Studios brought such a positive energy. A few dozen from the crowd including Sisters Uncut joined her on stage for the finale, and we streamed the whole affair live on our Facebook page for those that couldn’t make it down before immediately signing her up for consequent shows in Bristol and Los Angeles.
Tunnel Vision has been flying the flag for the bugged-out, strange, and psychedelic, so it was fitting that we saw out its final episode with Silver Apples. The kind Loose Bones hosts could barely hide their awe during the interview and followed up with a cerebral and undeniably mind-expanding, synth-heavy set.
