Printworks' first club show of 2020 sees Maribou State (DJ), Quantic (Solo Live), Lil Silva & Donna Leake make their Printworks debuts in the company of SG Lewis (DJ) and DJ Seinfeld.
Despite growing up in the same picturesque village, Chris Davids and Liam Ivory, aka Maribou State, customarily ignored each other at school, but discovered their shared passion for music at university in Leeds and became firm friends. Since then they have steadily built a glowing reputation via their debut album, a string of well-loved EPs, and a fistful of remixes (Including Kelis, Lana Del Rey, and Ultraísta). Plaudits from the electronic press have flowed thick and fast alongside support from radio heavyweights: Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, Giles Peterson, and Pete Tong amongst others. Intrigued by the dynamics of electronic music for the dance floor as much as with the richness and human quality of live instrumentation and song craft, the have worked tirelessly to evolve and forge a unique, compelling and deeply soulful marriage of the organic and the synthetic, showcased on their debut LP, Portraits.

'Odd, eccentric pop music from Bristol best describes Elder Island. Utilising guitar, vocals, cello and more, the trio are able to spin something magical, something really rather intoxicating.'
