14.07.10

Words by: Charlie Jones

The avant garde underbelly of commercial R&B has played a part in some of modern music’s most interesting excursions, and So Bones, a night/blog from Robin Carolan of XXjfg and Tri Angle Records has done more to cover strange Rap and R&B records than many others.

The night returning to Catch next Wednesday, and Ikonika and Girl Unit, whose excellent work for Hyperdub and Night Slugs have both borrowed the sheen-y, machine-y textures of R&B liberally, alongside Alex Macphearson and Robin himself, will be playing records. Listen to Robin’s mix from last year for an idea of what to expect.

So Bones at Catch, London, 22nd July 2010, from 10pm.
