Monthly Saturdays in 2009!

Here's some great news to begin the year: from February 21st, fledgling Cardiff club night, Disco Nectar will take place on the third Saturday of every month at our new venue, Undertone Basement (underneath 10ft Tall on Church Street). In 2008, Disco Nectar was responsible for exposing your ears to some seriously quality electronic sounds bringing the likes of Hague legends, Legowelt and Orgue Electronique as well as Planet Mu's Syntheme to the Welsh capital. We also hosted some of the best up and coming talent from the local scene: The Hidden Persuader, Valley Lines, Orcop and Info_Cifon. Guest DJs included BLOC resident Joe Hart who promotes Body Hammer in London, NONOM Exeter resident, Mike Nanobot, and Acid Casuals' Cian Ciaran AKA PAPS. That's not bad for only three events.

Here's what's lined up for the first instalment at the new venue.

Lee Underpass
(Urban Planning Records)

Underpass writes fractured electro and warm electronica.The Underpass sound is dense, atmospheric, often claustraphobic, pulling in strands of detroit electro, contemporary electronica and the nascient strains of dub, underpinned with a b-boy sensibility.

His incendiary live laptop sets have taken him around the country, with the likes of Cylob [warp], Lektrogirl [rephlex], Max Tundra [warp], Kode 9 [rephlex], Acid Casuals [novamute], Kutchi [adcam], Boep [adcam], Sh!tmat [planet mu], Con Brio, Bovaflux, Rich Thair [of red snapper], Steve Hellier [death in vegas] and Johnny Boy [novamute] amongst others.

We're also delighted to welcome Richard Carnage, promoter and resident DJ at TAPE Bristol and News Editor for Resident Advisor. Past guest, Nanobot (resident at NONOM, Exeter) will also pay us another visit, not to forget residents, Synchronoise and C++ spinning discs.
