Bad Dimension stretches from the peaks of 60s garage psychedelia to the furthest reaches of space disco.
On the last Saturday of every month at The Horatia, DJs will collide kosmische disco, mutant funk, punk and psych to create analogue raves of supermassive proportions, powered by propulsive rhythms, motorik beats and tripped-out fuzz from the 60s to present.
Bad Dimension launches at 8pm on August 28th with a live set from The Oscillation. Veering between krautrock edginess and bittersweet pop melancholia, droning medicated tones and noise-driven, no-wave fuzz, The Oscillation recalls the kosmische musik of Neu! and Tangerine Dream interpreted with an eye on Pil's dubbed out punk funk, Miles Davis' experimentalism and Spacemen 3's strung out blues rock.
Following the release of The Oscillation’s debut album on DC Recordings at the end of 2007, the band toured relentlessly alongside such musical luminaries as Harmonia, Andrew Weatherall, Deerhunter, Fujiya Miyagi, Chrome Hoof, The Emperor Machine, and more. The live act has beguiled audiences far and wide, with the unique visuals of photographic artist Julian Hand unleashing a kaleidoscopic, enchanting whirl of hypnotic psychadelia.
The Horatia is a beautiful big boozer on Holloway Road with a hefty club soundsystem (sourced from the old Cross venue) and a 2am license, recently reopened by the team behind Shoreditch's Horse and Groom.
Entrance is FREE.
