SATURDAY - 7.3.15

S.T.D. Presents | James Lavelle [UNKLE/Mo’Wax, UK]

Day 2 of Arkham’s Two Year Anniversary Weekend coming your way!

This time STD is stepping in to bring you a legend of the trip-hop and psych-rock scene, one who’s been moulding music since his early teenage years, redefining the way we look at genre and sound altogether. His influence in the world of electronic music is virtually peerless and his more than 20 years of experience DJing, producing and so much more have established him as one of the world’s most interesting artists to follow. Shanghai, get ready for James Lavelle.

Lavelle is many things: DJ, producer, promoter, designer, director, you name it. Talent and creativity ooze from this one. Searching for a way to channel his energy early on, he founded now-famous record label, Mo’Wax, in 1992 when he was not even 20 years old. With Lavelle at the helm, Mo’Wax grew famous for its genre irreverence, becoming a confluence of multiple mediums and generating boundless projects that defied categorization, marrying music, video, dance, fashion, toys and much more. Beyond art, Mo’Wax morphed into a lifestyle and cultural movement. The label went on to release DJ Shadow’s, Entroducing……, which became one of the most seminal LP’s of the past two decades.

As a musician, Lavelle is best known as a member of UNKLE, an experimental pysch-rock and trip hop outfit created with long-time friend Tim Goldsworthy. UNKLE has a handful of LP’s which span a wide range of sounds, from hip-hop to rock, and which feature a number of amazing artists, such as Josh Homme and Thom Yorke. In his music you’ll find sounds that are sinister, foggy, contemplative, and always powerful, manifested in records and live events that stick to your brain like glue.

Well shit, this is a damn good way to kick in the door on Arkham’s 3rd year! It’s been two years since Arkham was erected as host of this experimental music contagion, and we’re still pushing to spread it further and wider. You want in? Come Saturday. Come unprotected.
