U:Mack are bringing Clark, Hype Williams, Awesome Tapes From AfricaForrests, Sunken Foal and Subaltern to the Button Factory this Bank Holiday Sunday and you can win a pair of tickets right here.

We bring a bumper lineup on the Bank Holiday Sunday with Clark, Hype Williams, Awesome Tapes From Africa as well as Irish acts Forrests, Sunken Foal and Subaltern. Clark‘s latest LP “Iraldephic” has been a real return to form with it becoming one of the most critically acclaimed electornic albums of the year. Not resting on his laurels, Clark has also just released a new EP “Fantasm Planes” as a counterpart to the LP.

Hype Williams, described by The Guardian as “the missing link between Ariel Pink and Aphex Twin” are bringing their insane live show to Ireland you never know what you’re going to get from a hype williams show, they’ve been known to feature teams of bodybuilders, hallucinatory joggers on treadmills and even a horse…The duo kept their identity a mystery for some time and continue to cloud a lot of what they do in secrecy.

Making his Irish Debut is Awesome Tapes From Africa, an act we’ve wanted to book for quite a while. After a stint in GHANA researching the local hip-hop movement, BROOKLYN’s BRIAN SHIMKOVITZ, has accumulated hundreds of cassette tapes of rare african music from ZIMBABWE to ETHOPIA to SENEGAL. He has been sharing his bounty through his popular blog AWESOME TAPES FROM AFRICA, which he takes on the road as a DJ – expect a trip to the music cultures of an entire continent!

Wrapping up the bill are three brilliant electronic Irish acts; Sunken Foal, one of the country’s most accomplished electronic artists, Forrests (formally of Channel One) – who’s track Tarifa is one of the releases of the year, and Subaltern who compose a unique set featuring new tracks for each performance and perform live with analogue synths and drum machines.

If you’d like a chance to win a pair of tickets just send an email with STATICSUNDAYTICKETSPLEASE as the subject to giveaways@thumped.com by midnight on Thursday, 25th October.
