Fuck Buttons
w/ Mystery Skulls and Lichens

Fuck Buttons
Four years on since they dropped 2009’s blistering Tarot Sport, Fuck Buttons’ Benjamin John Power and Andrew Hung are back with their third LP Slow Focus.

Fuck Buttons were flung out into the perception of the global public last year when Danny Boyle opted to use their music in his breath-taking Olympics Opening Ceremony in London, after a recommendation from techno veterans Underworld whom were working with Boyle at the time. Now they’re ready to face the limelight in full again, with a string of festival dates coming up this Summer, including headline slots on The Park Stage at Glastonbury and at Green Man, then, later in the year, a full UK and European tour.

Fuck Buttons may have been away for a while, but Slow Focus looks set to put them right back where they were: as one of the most arresting electronic acts in the world today.
Mystery Skulls

Mystery Skulls is really the nom de plume of Los Angeles based electronic artist Luis Dubuc. Formerly from Venezuela, and then Dallas, Texas, Dubuc sounds like Prince fronting Daft Punk, mixing his inspirations of ’90′s R&B and New Jack Swing with EDM music and futuristic sounds.

Lichens

Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (b. 1975) is an artist and multi instrumentalist that works with voice in the realm of spontaneous music often under the moniker of Lichens. Most recently, creating patch pieces with modular synthesizer and singing to them has been a focus of live performance and recordings.

Quality of sound through the marriage of synthesis coupled with voice has allowed for a heightened physicality in the way of ecstatic music, both in a live setting and recorded. The sensitivity of analogue modular systems echoes the organic nature of vocal expression which in this case is meant to put forth a trancelike state. To usher in Deep Listening through sound and feeling. Losing one’s self in sound while being acutely self aware.

By way of a recent meeting and collaboration with artist Patrick Smith, Robert has begun to utilize projections with live performances. The current video piece is called “Clouds” which is a vector driven animation made by Patrick Smith.

Through collaboration Robert has worked with Ben Russell, Ben Rivers, Rose Lazar, Hisham Akira Bharoocha, Tarek Atoui, Ben Vida, Mark Borthwick, Lucky Dragons, Alan Licht, Michael Zerang, Doug Aitken, Patrick Smith, Monica Baptista, Lee Ranaldo, White/Light, Kevin Martin, Chris Johanson, Tyondai Braxton, David Scott Stone, Genesis P­Orridge and Rose Kallal, as well as many others.
