"More is less. Less is more. The eye is a menace to clear sight. The laying bare of oneself is obscene. Art begins with the getting rid of nature." - Ad Reinhardt
Based in San Francisco, Kerri LeBon is a DJ, artist, designer and creator of Bay Area club night Discipline. Her mixes and productions have been released on the likes of Silent Servant, Jealous God and Traxx's Nation imprint.
In a rare chance to catch her in London, she's playing New River Studios this Friday alongside Autumns and Carl ClanDestine. As likely to draw from EBM and techno as she is early industrial, Kerri's DJ sets are not for the faint-hearted and certainly not to be missed.
Kerri has put together an 8 Tracks selection for us, "compiled to illustrate [her] passion for sparse, yet impactful music." From New Order and Alan Vega to Coil and Eliane Radigue, listen below:
DZ LECTRIC & ANTON SHIELD - EXPERIMENTING LOVE
Humid synth line, naive lyrics, androgynous vocal delivery... perfectly offset by a punching (Linn?) drum. One of my favourite tracks reissued by Minimal Wave.
