Saturday 4th August

10pm-11pm, The Edge, £12 (part of Saturday Triple Bill)


Strobes are the collaboration of West Midlands keyboardist Dan Nicholls (Squarepusher, Vula Viel) with drummer Dave Smith (Robert Plant, Outhouse) and Matt Calvert (Three Trapped Tigers) who plays guitar and synthesizers. Conjuring big beats and a vast array of sonic possibilities, their music flickers effortlessly between the worlds of electro­improv, minimalist polyrhythm, Afrocentric grooves and distinctively original hooks.
