Recent Downwards signing and crafter of exquisitely slow techno to play London this Thursday

Samuel Kerridge, the Berlin-based producer who's been responsible for some of the most enjoyably deep, mind-altering industrial techno of the last year, is set to play his London debut show this Thursday 25th July. It takes place at Plastic People, Shoreditch, from 10-2am, and will feature Kerridge playing both live and DJing. Those who've heard some of Kerridge's music will know what to expect - slow and sub-bass heavy sturm und drang, toeing a tight line between rhythmic propulsion and scorching, power-station ambience. "I want the music to consume you, take you in," Kerridge said in an interview with the Quietus at the start of this year. "I want a reaction from people, for them to be taken aback, all their senses assaulted. I don't want to deliberately make harrowing music, though I see it as having a lot of emotion and soul. I hope people can express themselves when hearing it, but I also like to have that shock factor."

It promises to be an overwhelming experience for a hot Thursday evening - for more information and tickets, click here. DJ support comes from the Quietus' own Rory Gibb, who promises "synthy weirdness and sludgy beats", and BleeD Music's Casper Clark aka Volte-Face - listen to his recent show on Rinse FM, with a guest mix from Vester Koza, here. And for a taste of what to expect from Kerridge, take a listen to a track from his recent From The Shadows That Melt The Flesh 12" on Downwards via the embed below.
