Club Dread (October ’20)

There she is! Studio kitty, Lupini, is back with a public face.

Having taken the last six months broadcasting her club-orbiting existential-horror show – Club Dread – as a secret online easter egg with no internet archive, the time for ephemerality is over. The time of internet presence is now.

Lupini is part of the studio furniture at Melodic Distraction Radio. She co-runs a party called ATHE alongside Ben Sleia, that places womxn and artists of colour centre stage in the techno/club/electro/hardcore continuum.  She hosts DJ Workshops for Womxn and has been generously described as an “administrator of the Liverpool music scene.” Lupini holds a monthly radio residency on Netil’s flagship show ‘Kaleidosound.’ There you’ll find a home for gentle, healing, ambient and psychedelic sounds with an “”avant”” or “”experimental”” bent.

Club Dread arrives in this brave new decade with a circular race from ambient to ^club^ back to ambient, all in the space of 60minutes. This time is a Warhammer Special, where Lupini tries to some very important chat room questions like  how many italo songs are there about warlords? and what army best suits arrogant, elegant cats? or does Age of Sigmar suck? She’s joined by techno-adjacent internet friends who give their voice notes of fond Warhammer memories: HMT Hard Cru, DJ LOTR, Andrew Ellis, Trieste, Snoodman Deejay and Sonny Franklin.
