Holotronica 3D

The Soundcrash crew have always put on interesting events, and tomorrow they join forces with the mighty Hexstatic for a night of AV excellence. Hexstatic are apparently utilising some rather new technology, and have promised to take you into a “tri-dimensional world” tomorrow night.

On arrival you’ll be presented with a pair of 3D specs for a groundbreaking show from the AV pioneers (a glimpse of which you can see in the video below). The boys have kept a lot of the info about their new machinery closely guarded, but apparently stereoscopic visuals will be projected onto a custom-made silver mesh screen for a full holographic effect. Analogue synthesizers with real time MIDI triggered visuals will then combine all that with the  beats and bleeps of Hexstatic’s music.

They’re joined by DJ Cheeba and his turntablist skills, who mixes and mashes AV in with a proper party DJ set. This man is known for his quick fire mixing and inspired tune selection, and was a resident on Ninja Tune’s legendary Solid Steel radio show in 2010. If that wasn’t enough, Public Service Broadcasting will be bashing out their indie leaning electro with visuals too. Big up your ears and eyes for this one!

Saturday 28 Apr, Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, London, EC2A 3PQ, 9pm – 4 am, £14 adv, more info here.
