In an all electronic line up, Will Guthrie plays his first acoustic set at OTO.
In a review of the evening, Tim Fletcher wrote: "Beginning with deliberation, sounding smart stick-length strikes on the hi-hat and precisely measured drum hits at measured intervals, Guthrie gradually heightened both tempo and emphasis without any relaxation of structural rigour, gradually shifting and overlaying rhythms to a thunderous culmination. Think of a racked Joy Division metric, or the martial drum ‘n’ bass of Photek played out on skins, rims and cymbals. It was an impressive display of stamina and precision, with an extensive, texturally free coda played out on a kit augmented with gongs and cymbals."
