Metropolis

Kormac has assembled his most ambitious ensemble yet for Kormac’s Big Band’s winter run. He’ll be joined on stage by a brass section, a string quartet, guitars, bass, drums and guest vocalists while he plays an array of electronic instruments including virtual drums, turntables and keyboards as well as controlling visuals. He’ll be performing tracks from his hugely successful Doorsteps LP where he collaborated with guests including Irvine Welsh, Speech Debelle and Micah P Hinson. He will also be previewing brand new material. Kormac and the band are delighted to be part of this stellar line up and play the main hall at Metropolis on Sunday November 8th.

Here’s Kormac performing a track composed entirely using found sounds recorded at the Jameson factories alongside Vyvienne Long. They performed the track last week at Jameson distillery in Middleton. Tons of fun…

It’s Muddy Out There…

Festival season continues in earnest. Kormac’s been on the road for the last few weeks showcasing his brand new AV show, where he performs his own material and remixes joined by a drummer and a massive screen showing custom-designed visuals. After last Friday’s trip to to Germany to play at the wonderful Trebur festival, the guys are heading for Stendhall Festival in Northern Ireland this weekend. Have a sneaky peek at the new show here..

Kormac on Funkhaus Europa Radio

Here’s a brand new DJ mix, recorded exclusively for Funkhaus Europa/WDR radio in Germany. Click below for full track list.

Rap Mix for Hyponik

When the nice people at Hyponik Magazine asked Kormac to do a mix for them, he used the opportunity to share some quality hip hop.

Check out the mix below and the track list here.

“When I record mixes, I, usually, try and touch on as many different genres and tempos as possible to replicate what I do in clubs. I’ve wanted to do a straight-up rap mix for a while now and share some hip hop I’m really into, but that I wouldn’t, necessarily, play for dancefloors at 2am.”

Wake Up Nominated for Song of the Year

We’re delighted that Wake Up has been shortlisted for the Meteor Choice Music Prize – Song of the Year. The winner is decided by public vote. Please vote early and often here.
