Let It Bleed Presents Daniel Avery @ Snafu!


I've had quite close ties to the Let It Bleed nights since I first created some visuals for the Pat Mahoney gig back in 2009. For each event I do my best depending on time and energy to create interesting visuals which help to create a special atmosphere and when you can't really see who's stepping up to the turntables sometimes a big glaring piece of text with the artists name can be handy! I've recorded a fair bit of the visuals over the years and have just recently started archiving them online via the Let It Bleed Youtube Channel. Sometimes its good to look back at stuff you've done in the past to help you move forward. Many of the visuals videos are paired with the live set from the night but others have a mix from the artists to give you a flavour of what the nights were like, usually big sweaty affairs with a lot of people enjoying themselves.

For the next Let It Bleed we have Daniel Avery coming to Sanfu for a special 3 hour DJ set. Normally a big name will do an hour 30 or maybe 2 hours tops so to have a 3 hour set is pretty special. Daniel's debut album "Drone Logic" has been recieving a lot of praise in the music press and his Boiler Room sets give you an idea of what to expect (see the bottom video and watch the guy in the stripey t shirt for inspiration). In preparation for Saturday I put together a special edit for Drone Logic mixing up a couple of old educational videos using some old video editing software. Its great what you can do with a simple concept and some key words (Drone x Logic = mathematics of the honeycomb x geometry of shapes)!

Tickets have been selling fast for this so if you fancy it I suggest popping into Attic or picking up tickets here. Here's to a sweaty night with good friends!
