Uncharted Audio is proud to present the Uncharted Sessions vol. 4
with VERY special guests DIGITONAL (live) featuring KIRSTY HAWKSHAW
@ Ginglik, 1 Shepherds Bush Green, London
17/07/04 Doors 9pm-Midnight 3 quid entry/free to full Ginglik members
Kirsty Hawkshaw first came to public prominence in the early 90’s with the number one dance single ‘Fine Day’ with Opus 3. A massive and influential record, this provided Kirsty with a platform to expand her musical vistas and collaborate with a host of pioneers in electronic music including Orbital, Steve Hillage, Rachid Taha, Spooky and Drum Club. It was her vocals that provided Orbital with arguably two of their finest moments – ‘Halcyon’ and ‘Lush’. Since then Kirsty has gone on to work with some of today’s leading electronica/dance producers and artists including Hybrid, Ian Pooley, Way Out West, Tiesto and Global Communication.
Digitonal are playing in the Sanctuary Tent on the Friday night, from 11pm-12pm at this year’s Big Chill festival. They will be joined for this performance by a singer with whom they have been working for the past few months, on both her album and new Digitonal material. That singer is none other than ambient legend Kirsty Hawkshaw, best known for her work with Opus III and Orbital, and her own superb album, < O.U.T >. They’ll be playing a bit of a hybrid set of their material and hers, all given that Digitonal twist. Expect lushness…
There is one low-key warmup for this gig, which will be taking place at Ginglik in Shepherds Bush on 17th of July as part of a monthly event hosted by the Uncharted Audio record label, with whom Digitonal also recently travelled to perform in France. Watch out for dates later this year in Berlin, Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham and Birmingham as well as a series of other festival dates in the UK and Europe in August.
