Booka Shade have announced that Fritz Helder, of Azari & III fame, will be joining the Berlin based duo live for the first time tonight.

Fritz, who also recently re-scored ‘All That She Wants’ with Yolanda Be Cool, will be joining the Berlin electronic duo for their collaborative track ‘Love Drug’, taken from Booka Shade’s acclaimed LP, Eve.

The Noise of Art gig, which takes place on Friday 25 April as part of Convergence Festival at Village Underground, is sold out.

Tickets are available for the Booka Shade and Noise of Art curated after show, later that night, with Tom Findlay of Groove Armada DJing, We Have Band playing live and much more. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS. THERE AREN’T MANY LEFT but some will be for sale on the door.

On Saturday 26 April Noise of Art, Convergence, Village Underground and Red Gallery present Future Music Forum at Red Gallery 1-3 Rivington St, London, EC2A 3DT.

When Luigi Russolo described future music 100 years ago he was writing at the dawn of the age of large scale industry – the start of an epoch of noise. Today we are at the dawn of the digital age, where production is becoming increasingly silent. What sounds will shape the future of music?

This is the first session in a series of events discussing the future of music. It follows an afternoon of panels on music and technology at the Barbican and will take place in the Red Gallery’s man room (which bares an uncanny resemblence to a certain legendary Manchester nightclub).

Speakers at Red Gallery include a key note from Martyn Ware (founder of Human League and Heaven 17) in conversation with Luke Bainbridge (author of Acid House: The True Story), Dr Diana Salazar (lecturer in electronic music, City University) on the repurposing of sounds of the past to make music of the future and a discussion on the future of music writing with Professor Martin James (Solent University), James Drury (Festival Awards), Andy Malt (CMU), Carl Loben (DJ Magazine) and more to be announced.
