In their ten years of operation the loose collective of artists that form the Sandwell District collective have risen from relative obscurity to leave an immediately recognizable mark at the core of modern techno. Combining industrial grit, violent and stark aesthetics and media subversion tactics, they have come to define not only modern electronica, but in many ways the modern age. It is somewhat fitting then that the label operations descended into chaos at their moment of triumph, the release of 2011’s “Feed Forward” album which is the starting point of this weeks show. Cabeza de Vaca picks up the pieces and traces the trajectory of each of the three main protagonists Function, Regis and Silent Servant and their associates, bringing their influence to bare and highlighting their recent work.
