Leftfield British producer Evian Christ has signed to legendary experimental label Warp Records.
As well lending production to Kanye West's "I'm In It," Josh Leary is best known for his EPs Kings And Them and Waterfall on trail-blazing label Tri Angle, for running his Trance Party club nights with ridiculously good line-ups, and for accidentally ordering 500 pairs of boxer shorts with his own name printed on them.
Leary's first "release" on Warp (according to a press release) will be an installation at London's Institute of Contemporary Art with visual collaborator David Rudnick, running from July 23rd to July 26th. From the tongue-in-cheek press release:
Warp Arts, in partnership with Evian Christ & David Rudnick, present a series of materials recalling and responding to the events of The Trance War, which took place in Europe (1998 - ongoing). The presentation will contain an archive of publications, pamphlets and posters spanning the period of Trance expansion to its eventual contemporary ruin, and the temporary installation of Britain's first public monument in commemoration of the 30,000 Dogs whose lives were lost during the disputed conflict. The installation includes a memorial fanfare composed for the occasion. Join Evian Christ & David Rudnick in the ICA Theatre to mark the opening on the 23rd July.
