Having played one of the standout sets at our launch event at Tobacco Dock last month, we are delighted to announce that the collaboration of electronic music innovators Luke Slater, Steve Bicknell and Function AKA LSD will be making their UK festival debut at Junction 2 2018. Playing alongside Len Faki, Scuba presents SCB, Dense & Pika and Jay Clarke, LSD will take to the Warehouse stage, Junction 2’s enclosed structure that pays homage to London’s party heritage.
LSD’s story begins in Berlin techno institution, Berghain in 2016. The three Ostgut Ton producers came together for an improvised audio-visual extravaganza. Initially, the collaboration was intended to be a one-time deal. Such was the chemistry, it soon became clear it was only the beginning. Studio-time and further dates followed. Their music and accompanying visual aim to induce trance-like, psychedelic experiences. Combining moments of hypnotic and atonal melodies, in an effort to accentuate hallucinatory and shapeshifting sonic elements.
There only other previously appearance together in London was their outing at Tobacco Dock for the J2 Launch party back in February. Junction 2 doesn’t only mark a rare performance, it’s also the collective’s first ever festival appearance. This is going to be truly special. Playing inside the pressure-cooker of The Warehouse: Luke Slater – Steve Bicknell – Dave Sumner. L-S-D.
