UK producer Anthony Williams, who has previously recorded as Headhunter, released his debut LP under his new Addison Groove moniker earlier this month on Modeselektor's 50 Weapons label. The album is called Transistor Rhythm and puts Addison Groove next in the recent line of producers bringing Chicago juke and footwork into the UK bass scene. Stream clips of the album below alongside full streams of the tracks "Savage Henry" and "Bad Things."
Addison Groove just kicked off a North American tour in support of the album with fellow UK producer/50 Weapons labelmate Doc Daneeka last night (4/25) in Boston. The two producers will make their way to NYC this weekend for a Brooklyn show on Saturday (4/28) at Glasslands with Jubilee. Tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Speaking of Modeselektor, they just played NYC shows of their own at Bowery and Music Hall as part of a between-Coachella tour that ended back at Coachella where they were joined on stage by Thom Yorke.
