Two superb electronic music duos become one double-headed monster, co-headlining a gig to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the online music shop Bleep.

Mixing up terrifically, thrillingly abrasive electronic distortion with sublime melodies and psychotropic post-house, Fuck Buttons formed to make one soundtrack in 2004 and have since released three extraordinary albums. The latest is called 'Slow Focus', and has reached a far bigger audience than ever before after two of the Worcester duo's tracks made it onto the soundtrack of the 2012 London Olympic opening ceremony.

Post-dubstep boundary busters from Peckham Dominic Maker and Kai Campos, meanwhile, are Mount Kimbie. Their intriguing blend of house, hip hop and ambient electronica comes together to wonky, trippy and deeply unsettling effect on their new album 'Cold Spring Fault Less Youth'.

Austrian laptopper and guitarist Fennesz, admired far and wide for his glitchy near-pop reveries, plays a late set after the main show with visuals by artist Lillevan.

This event is part of the Convergence series.
