Fake Blood / Count & Sinden @ Cabaret Voltaire, 26 Nov
Sugar Beat Club welcomes two of this century’s most notorious electro perpetrators in a double billing this November. Both Fake Blood and The Count and Sinden need no introduction to those who were more than willingly cajoled into the electro house scene when it exploded in the second half of the last decade. Genre stalwarts and influential figures, both have operated under different monikers and experimented with different sounds throughout their time in the dusty, sweat-drenched spotlight of the British electro scene.
Whether as Hervé, (The Count) or one half of The Black Ghosts (Fake Blood) or around 3/7s of Machines Don’t Care (all three), this trio of electronic misfits have been responsible for some of the most perverse, fidgety dance floor clunking of the past four or so years. Fans should have come to expect nothing less from Sugarbeat. Founded in 2005 by The Utah Saints, the club night has hosted a vast and diverse number of different club artists from Stanton Warriors to Justice, a bracket just wide enough for tonight’s acts to land right in the middle of.
