Blackest Ever Black At Corsica: New Additions
The Quietus , June 28th, 2013 08:22

Next edition of the label's annual showcases adds Shampoo Boy, Source Direct and more to line-up

The Blackest Ever Black label have been having a busy year, with albums already released from Prurient, Shampoo Boy and Edinburgh duo Dalhous, EPs from Alexander Lewis and Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, and cassettes from, among others, Helena Hauff. They've also got a raft of new stuff upcoming: a new Tropic of Cancer 12", an EP of new Black Rain material following on from last year's Now I'm Just A Number, and albums from Raspberry Bulbs and Lustmord due imminently. For more information on their busy release schedule click here.

Now, on top of all that, they've begun filling out the line-up for this year's label showcase night at London's Corsica Studios, which takes place on Saturday 12th October. Unlike last year's strongly electronic/dance flavoured line-up, this one's offering rather doomier delights. As well as the previously announced Tropic Of Cancer, Dalhous and Dva Damas, they've added two more live artists.

Shampoo Boy, the trio of Peter Rehberg, Christina Nemec and Christian Schachinger, who released their debut LP Licht through BEB just recently, have joined the bill, as has the enigmatic A.D. Jacques. Jacques "spent fifteen years selling avant-garde LPs and recording his own music in secret before spending another ten years as a recluse," say Blackest Ever. "He made his live solo debut at the 2012 BEB showcase whilst disguised as a DJ."

In addition, they've also announced the first two of several DJs who will be playing. Jungle/drum & bass innovators Source Direct's Jim Baker will be once again returning to Corsica after playing at last year's BEB event (joyous news), and Berlin drum & bass producer Felix K will also be playing, following the recent release of his Flowers Of Destruction debut album.
