Dean Blunt @ The Echoplex, Mar 11

11 March 2016

London-based musician and artist Dean Blunt is performing LA’s The Echoplex on March 11.

Presented by Gene’s Liquor, the lineup also includes Delroy Edwards and SFV Acid, all of whom are introduced on the FB event by way disparaging quotes from critical reviews, one by British actor Idris Elba and one by Resident Advisor writer Angus Finlayson.

The ex-Hype Williams performer who’s since built a considerable catalogue around his own Dean Blunt moniker is releasing an album from his new project Babyfather on Hyperdub in April. He’s also presented a series of exhibitions and events in the art sphere, including Space, ICA and Cubitt Gallery in London, and collaborated with the likes of James Ferraro.
