The Gaslamp Killer Experience + The Heliocentrics at Koko, London
The Gaslamp Killer will be bringing his Gaslamp Killer Experience show to the UK for the first time on Thursday the 25th of June, his brand new live spectacle that features The Heliocentrics, a 12-piece band that contains guitarists, drummers, brass, woodwind and keyboard players, who will play along to The GLK programmed delights.
Signed to Flying Lotus’ label Brainfeeder, The Gaslamp Killer has released number of EPs such as My Troubled Mind and The Killer Robots EPs, however it was his debut album Breakthrough that did what it said on the tin and opened the eyes of many musicians, labels and promoters to what The Gaslamp Killer could do whilst in the studio.
The Gaslamp Killer’s music heavily samples many bands and artists from many genres of music, with inspiration taken from all over the music spectrum from the past 20 years. His debut LP contains 17 tracks with vocals put down by the likes of Gonjasurfi, Samiyam and Adrian Younge with skits, instrumentals and raps laid throughout the 45 minute journey.
The Gaslamp Killer Experience Tour that will feature the Heliocentrics will be visiting a number of countries all over the globe, however there will only be a limited number of performances in the UK, with this date at KOKO in London being the first time the show comes to Britain. Described by Resident Advisor and “one of the most energetic live shows in electronic music” it will no doubt be an aural and visual treat for your eyes and ears.
