Join us for a newly commissioned performance by the DJs, vocalists and producers LC and mellowdramatics. In this event, the artists will present a 30 minute soundscape that will bring together newly composed sound and music with texts, poetry and creative writing that will explore issues related to Black subjectivity and representation in mainstream culture and education contexts. The event has been organised in conjunction with our current exhibition Masters by Shaun Motsi.
LC is a dj, vocalist, and producer based in South London. Their music interlaces elements of pop and a wide span of electronic music to craft a rich tapestry of sonic references. Bleeding heart lyricism and breathy sirensong characterise their sonic offerings. Their recent releases include the EP ‘Gaze-Star’ alongside Charles Verni on Kelman Duran and Ans M’s label Scorpio Red. LC is also a vocalist in the band bryony no.
mellowdramatics plays genre-less, club focused and playful sets, pulling from divergent references that encapsulate the spectrum of what feels like home to them. As a founding member of Black Obsidian Sound System (B.O.S.S) & crew member of Tanum Sound System, mellowdramatics’ practice as a DJ & operator pushes to resist cooption through attempts at rebuilding, redistributing and sustaining space for those disenfranchised & marginalised, both within London and further afield. Live highlights include supporting Juliana Huxtable, Nkisi, Anz & Ama Lou with gigs played all over the U.K. and internationally in Paris, Berlin & San Juan.
