      Move & Noise of Art launch their new pan-border night at The Social with Prague’s Aid Kid, New Zealand’s Dudley Benson, Scotland’s electro wunderkind Exterior and host DJ Ben Osborne.

      After running pilot events in 2018, the outward looking night at the Social throws its nets ever wider with a new series of events inviting European, global and UK acts to play Central London’s revered basement venue.

      Aid Kid (Ondra Mikula) is one of today’s most talented Czech musicians, producers and DJs. His self-released debut album got instant recognition with critics and the Czech Vinyla award for Discovery of the Year. His live set consists of mostly unreleased material. He uses both analog hardware and software to build tension and produce long linear compositions.

      Dudley Benson is an award winning avant-pop musician based in Dunedin, New Zealand. A rare and independent artist, he matches a unique vision with critical acclaim and chart success. Benson blends elements of pop, classical and electronic music. He has performed in and been commissioned by New Zealand’s major public art galleries and has cult status at home. Benson has duetted with Vashti Bunyan, been remixed by Matmos, Casiotone For The Painfully Alone and Barbara Morgenstern, and recorded albums in both English and te reo Māori (the Māori language).

      Exterior is the artist moniker of Edinburgh producer Doug MacDonald. In a previous life Doug played hardcore and noise-rock, gaining an understanding of the power of live drumming and years of performance-skills that are unusual in dance music. Exterior represents his convergence of disparate musical influences, drawing on rhythmic mavericks as divergent as Fugazi//Battles//Swans. Eschewing computer music in favour of an exclusively hardware based approach, Exterior’s live show has been described by Chris Cusak (of Glasgow’s live institution Bloc), as the ‘best electronic live set i've seen in two years’.

      Host DJ Ben Osborne is a London born DJ, musician, and award-winning creative producer . He plays clubs and festivals internationally, has residencies in London and Prague and has a habit of playing unusual spaces, such as the Bt Tower, Tate, National Theatre and National Portrait Gallery. He’s presented long running specialist radio shows for Xfm, NME Radio and Totallyradio (Brighton) and has written books on the history of UK clubs and the Arctic Monkeys and extensively for national press and magazines.
