As part of Southbank Centre’s Purcell Sessions series, Hector Plimmer joins forces with fellow electronic experimentalist Ben Hayes for a unique performance exploring collaboration between humans and machines. Ahead of the show Plimmer shares a playlist of sonic inspirations and tracks that he’s listening to at the moment.
Plimmer’s second album Next To Nothing, released last October, saw the multi-faceted designer, producer and DJ further explore his luscious, intricately crafted electronica, drawing on drum and bass influences and taking inspiration from contemporaries such as Flying Lotus and Theo Parrish. Featuring guest appearances from Ego Ella May, Emma-Jean Thackray and more across the record, Plimmer’s effervescent basslines and graceful, glistening melodies offer a resonant, resplendent serenity.
