A mix of cutting-edge UK artists and locals, each showcase takes off from the NTS slogan “Don’t Assume,” investigating different axes of the underground sounds they are renowned for. The first program snakes through Beatrice Dillon’s singular, electro-acoustically inclined jazz tweaks and avant-dub stylings, to Space Afrika and their slow-stepping, urban dubscapes, finishing off with a punk-noise-electronics mash with a live drummer from Shit & Shine. A cast of compelling local artists are peppered throughout — experimental soundscaping from Racine with visuals by Wolski, the live hardware dub -flavoured improvs of duo Loose Excursions (Gene Tellem and Gabriel Reichhold), and the propulsive percussion and collage of Godspeed You! Black Emperor drummer Aidan Girt as alter ego OSB.
