Mildlife take the musical canvas, rip the lids off the paint tins, and throw vibrant slashes of colour into kaleidoscopic jams. Old friends, the four-piece bonded over the desire to push musical boundaries, developing tight live shows bolstered by wild improvisation and a debut record that mines jazz, psych and disco for its irresistible groove. Taking cues from pioneers Can and Herbie Hancock, creating a Mildlife song is a constant process of teasing and tugging, expanding and refining. Occasionally, they start with an individual idea, but most often, they come from moments of spontaneity, jamming together in the studio to find the seed of a strong notion, plucking it out of the session, and nurturing it to see where it grows. Check the album here: https://mildlife.bandcamp.com Support comes from the emerging and super talented synth production duo, Modified Man. This London based act have been bubbling away for the last couple of years blending their warped cassette recordings that touched upon early jazz-funk/brit-funk influences with the energy of broken beat and experimental electronica. One word. Dope! Check them here: https://modifiedman.bandcamp.com We have just added local boys, Chappaqua Wrestling, to the bill. Now residing in Manchester big things beckon for this brilliant Indie, Synth pop duo. We have an official after party following the gig and buying a gig ticket will give you automatic entry to the after party. DJs: Rob Luis (Tru-Thoughts) // Jaime Read // Jackie & Jayne Winstanley // Discojuice. 11pm-5am. We are excited for this. The word is out. Don't sleep!!
