Born in Berlin, Unhinged is a travelling party of music, visual arts, film and fashion arriving in Brixton for its first London event this Friday. It promises to be a showcase of London creativity as well as a big bash of a night out.
Mixing established artists with new talent across genres, the live stage opens with an acoustic set from Ben Ottewell — he of the incredible bluesy, gravelly voice that made the band Gomez sound so distinctive — playing songs from his solo album. Schlomo brings the beatboxing, Ghostpoet does a DJ set and breakthrough artists Lazarus & The Planecrash, pop goth Ysan Roche and blues trash rockers Quixote also perform in an intentionally eclectic line up.
The Electric itself will be transformed by a suspended sculpture gallery and filled with work by London’s finest painters, fashion designers, photographers and other artists. Street artist Blam will create something on the night, short film Yellow gets a screening and Cover to Cover club DJ will be playing mashups and rare covers late into the night.
