WE ARE ROBOTS: DANIEL MILLER + MORE (NIGHT)
The iconic Boiler House will play host to an exciting line up of talent including Ardyn, Warm Digits, Mt. Wolf, followed by the official We Are Robots after party with Daniel Miller.
ARDYN British twins Rob and Katy Pearson who go by the name Ardyn have burst onto the scene with a superb debut single titled “Universe”. The brother-sister duo are setting up to release their debut EP via National Anthem (Chvrches, HAIM etc). “Universe” can be best described as a psychedelic/folk track. Think Daughter (also produced by Rodaidh McDonald) meets Karen-O.
WARM DIGITS In the words of legendary DJ/producer Andrew Weatherall, Warm Digits create “Machine funk kraut-a-delia – it’s rather lovely!” Warm Digits’ brew of live drums, guitar and electronics betray a love of Neu!, Kraftwerk, and Boards of Canada.
Motorik percussion, electronic basslines, Keith Levene-style chops and squelchy analogue warmth are accompanied by live visuals in performances that have graced the Psych Fests of both London and Liverpool, seen them support the likes of Goblin, Modeselektor, ESG and many more, toured the UK with British Sea Power and blown the audience away at Supersonic any many other festivals. Their blistering live sets of “krautophonic blizzard-wave” have to be seen to be believed.
MT WOLF Mt. Wolf consists of singer-producer Sebastian “Bassi” Fox, guitarist Stevie McMinn and drummer Alex Mitchell. Having impressed the online tastemakers with their early EP releases “Red” (2015) and “Hex” (2016), the band’s hallmark splicing of electronic and acoustic elements and layered sounds has earned them comparisons to the likes of Sigur Ros and Bon Iver.
Mt. Wolf have seen their presence across the world grow exponentially over the last 18 months, with hundreds of thousands of weekly listeners on Spotify and radio support in both the US, Australia and the UK. Their album singles “Heavenbound”, “The Electric” and “Bohemia” have received significant support from streaming services and online tastemakers.
DANIEL MILLER Although he DJ’d many years ago, Daniel Miller’s recent DJing was inspired by an invitation from Karl O’Connor aka Regis who invited him to perform at a Sandwell district event at Berlin’s Berghain.
There he caught the bug to play again and since has been playing regular techno sets worldwide including Sonar. ENTER at Space in Ibiza, ADE in Amsterdam and of course a legendary performance at M-Nus’ Christmas Boiler Room in Berlin.
