Tarquin Manek live set on Berlin Community Radio this Friday

Shub Roy’s Revelate show, home to “genre-less abstraction with a focus on noise, experimental, punk/post-punk, various threads of electronic music and more”, returns to Berlin Community Radio this Friday, 15 July with a live set of oneiric dubwise electronics, corroded cold wave and revelatory avant-song experiments from our very own Tarquin Manek (pictured above).

Melbourne native Manek released a solo album, Tarquin Magnet, on Blackest Ever Black last year, and is a member of the bands F ingers and Tarcar (he’s also behind LST and several other more incognito projects). Currently in Europe for recording sessions and selected live dates (please direct any booking enquiries here), he will release a new record in Autumn/Winter 2016.

It features tracks by the likes of Geeneus, Anthill Mob, Sunship, DJ Scud and DJ Charmzy; as they explain in the accompanying Q&A, productions of this ilk strongly influenced the arrangements, basslines and drum programming of their recently released Tooth album.
