‘The end of the world is coming and Chris Clark is writing its soundtrack’ – Pitchfork
Off the back of another extremely busy year, Warp Records’ Clark returns to London for his biggest UK headline to show to date, which will herald new music from the man himself and more ‘human special effects’ from dancers Melanie Lane and Kianí del Valle. 2016 has shown the Berlin-based producer’s incredible diversity, including the release of the soundtrack to the critically-acclaimed Sky Atlantic series The Last Panthers, writing three new scores for contemporary dance choreographers Antony Hamilton and Melanie Lane, on top of collaborations with label mates Mark Pritchard and Bibio and contributing to the Save Fabric campaign.
The announcement of his live show will coincide with the giveaway of two tracks from the Clark archives. The savage, rave-destined hip hop bootlegs of Bone Thugs and Trina highlight his diverse production skills, especially in light of their contrast to his recent scores. Now back in the studio and working on new material, who knows what this man will do next?
