The slow-burning success of his 2010 album debut “Holkham Drones” was something of a dream induction into the world of professional music-making for Norfolk’s Luke Abbott. The electronic opus landed in Mojo’s Electronica Albums of 2010’ list, amongst wide-spread critical acclaim. An accompanying live touring schedule has kept Luke and his handcrafted hardware-jams rumbling across the clubs, gigs and festival of Europe throughout the years. Somewhere between the twin poles of Krautrock and techno, Luke’s hypnotic entrancements seem to connect with something deep, intuiting an urge to dance that is seemingly innate.
Luke will play at Cafe Oto on November 11th and here at the Vortex on the 12th.
