Live nights for electronica

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to do some networking and meet and hopefully play a nice in Auckland (or further a field perhaps) that specialises in electronica like Four Tet, Bonobo, Boards of Canada, Jon Hopkins kind of stuff. I have a band but looking to do some solo shows of my remixes and alternative versions.

There was a series running before Covid Electronicalive

There’s often gigs running at Whammy, Audio Foundation etc…

Probably best to get touch with the related Labels?

I’m not so keen on late nights myself - but if you’re interested in early evening or daytime outdoor gigs there may be some later in the year/next year.

Yeah I’d be really keen on that! What sort of thing was it you had in mind?

Sounds good. Yeah there is not a great selection unless you’re a drum and bass or techno DJ…

Yeah it’s tricky because “Electronica” sounds more like a sit down gig.
But half of those artists you mention play more dance focused live sets.
Jon Hopkins & Four Tet play mostly techno/house grooves.
Bonobo and BOC are more downbeat/triphop etc…

So the question is what venues cater to seated audiences?

We had a pretty healthy underground scene back in the late 90s.
There’s probably a lot of activity “under the radar” nowadays - but with net labels & social media it’s way easier to find :sunglasses:
