Fusing a spoken word artist and a well respected dance producer, the ongoing collaboration between Diode and Rick Holland has resulted in some curious music.
Continually experimental, the pair thrive on an easy exchange of ideas. Inviting others into the fold, recent sessions have included the likes of Onallee (Roni Size/Reprazent), Beth Rowley, Chris James (Stateless) and Andrew Plummer (World Sanguine Report) into the fold.
Shows are fluid, with recorded material extended into new re-workings. Clash has been handed video footage from a recent show, and it displays the creative relationship between each party.
Featuring Old Man Diode and Rick Holland, 'Love Parade' also features vocals from IamFya. Recorded in tiny London venue the Macbeth, you can watch it first on Clash.
