London-based composer Beatrice Dillon explores a peculiar no man’s land between UK bass, house and contemporary music. Her unique style is rhythmically complex, very transparent and both danceable as cerebral. Her latest album Workaround was The Wire Magazine’s best album of 2020.
The album sees Dillon work with musicians like Lucy Railton, Laurel Halo and Kuljit Bhamra. Bhamra is a British tabla player and composer, and one of the pioneers of ‘bhangra’, a popular musical style from the Punjabi diaspora in the UK. His nimble-fingered percussion seamlessly interweaves Dillon’s complex rhythmical structures.
Both musicians will perform an improvised set focusing on synthetic and rhythmic patterns. The performance includes the recently premiered Tabla Touch®, a new instrument designed by Kuljit Bhamra and his team at Keda Music Ltd.
