Live from Liverpool: The Loft - Curated By Melodic Distraction

02.12.2021 Cryptical Listening

More about this show

Take a trip underground with Che Wilson (aka Guevarism), the 22-year-old scouse selector behind the ‘Keep It Cryptic’ secret location warehouse party and record label.

Blending the colourful ’summer of love’ sounds of 60s psychedelia and 90s rave, with a healthy dose of jazz, funk, reggae, and hip hop added to the melting pot, Cryptical Listening brings a variety of styles under the same cosmic umbrella - old to new, local to international.

Having aired every first Thursday monthly since 2019, Cryptical Listening seeks to free your mind from the technicality of genre-based pigeon-holes to allow an hour’s-worth of appreciation for music of all cultures, contexts, and colours, which is an ethos clearly expressed through the ‘Keep It Cryptic’ party lineups, bringing guitar-driven bands under the same warehouse roof as techno-slamming DJs. Whether it’s the darker, bass-heavy breaks, or the lighter soulful boom bap, or Turkish folk gems, or acidified disco edits - you can really expect the unexpected here.

This month, Beat Detective takes control with an hour of deep reggae sounds.
