COLDCUT, founders of the groundbreaking UK label Ninja Tune, originators of the legendary Solid Steel Radio Show and creators of VJ software VJamm are bringing their massive audiovisual show SOUND MIRRORS to Aotearoa, NZ.

Landing direct from headlining the UK and European summer festival circuit, this multimedia extravaganza was created especially for the latest COLDCUT album, SOUND MIRRORS. Expect an evening of visual velocity, mental manipulation and aural astonishment from the original dance floor hooligans and digital revolutionaries, Matt Black and Jonathan More and their army of technicians. Special guest is Big Dada’s rising star JUICE ALEEM coming ruff, rugged and raw!

Black, a computer programmer and More, a former art teacher first began collaborating on sound and vision in the mid-eighties. In their quest to push the culture jam frontier in new dimensions, COLDCUT joined forces with technology collective Camart and designed VJamm, a PC software tool for real-time image and sound mixing.

VJamm was launched in the late nineties as part of COLDCUT’S CCTV show, giving rise to the 21 century digital riddim jockey jamming and scratching sound and vision. A demo of the latest VJamm3 is on the SOUND MIRRORS album, and the scratch montage stars in the upcoming tour.

Their interest in global interactivity with audiences means that unlike other bands, COLDCUT actually encourage filming at their gigs. Audiences at all SOUND MIRRORS gigs are invited to film the experience on their camera phones and send the result to: mycctv@coldcut.net.

Is it a competition, an art project or a socially acceptable alternative to happy slapping? The concept is simply MYCCTV.

Footage is uploaded and streamed in the MYCCTV section on the COLDCUT website and goodie bags are up for grabs for the best clips. Following the tour COLDCUT will work through all the footage and cut together a collaborative tour documentary to appear on a SOUND MIRRORS DVD.

The COLDCUT SOUND MIRRORS live show is also an excuse for a ‘Bluetooth’ party. Throughout the show, everyone in the audience with Bluetooth capability activated on their phone will receive ringtones, images and video, signalled live and direct from COLDCUT to your handset.

But music remains the heartbeat of the journey. The cast on the just released SOUND MIRRORS album includes the likes of Roots Manuva, Jon Spencer, John Matthias and Robert Owens, continuing a COLDCUT tradition of working with the very finest from all musical branches, a legacy that includes Junior Reid, Queen Latifah, Jello Biafra, Lisa Stansfield, Eric B & Rakim, Bernard Purdie, Steinski, Mark E Smith, Lee Perry and more.

The deadly duo’s Journeys by DJ CD is still regarded as the ‘best mix CD ever’ and their own albums, such as the seminal What’s That Noise? and genre redefining Let Us Play are consistently groundbreaking and ridiculously groovy.
