SWAGGERING HIP-HOP AND CORRUPTED TECHNO: FIELD DAY ROUND-UP The line-up for this year's Field Day, compressed from a weekend- long event to a single Saturday, did not disappoint! Starting off the day was Atlanta's rnb queen Abra with Cornwall's king of twisted beat-fuckery Aphex Twin, and Hyperdub's party starter in chief Ikonika. Alongside the liquor-sodden political nihilism of Scottish band Arab Strap, who showcased some of the boldest programmings you're likely to see this summer, and drew huge crowds to the sun-filled Victoria Park. Highlights of the day included a bombastic beat scene set from LA label head Flying Lotus, in a tent that was packed to burst, as well as the gentler, lean rap instrumentals of Clams Casino. But the show-stealer, as expected, was undoubtedly Richard D James, whose warped, and at times aggressively jarring set ranged from industrialist techno to frenetic gabber. The sheer excess of his set, in both staging and sound, was only slightly undermined by a quieter sound system than hardcore heads might have hoped for, but the speed-like rush generated by the pace at which Aphex Twin smashes through his sessions made you barely notice. The visceral force of his live shows, left the crowd in a state of semi- dazed delight, right until the end. 3 FESTIVAL DESTINATIONS TO GET YOUR ASS TO THIS JULY!
