When you run an electronic-music night and want to celebrate an anniversary properly, you can't do much better than to book a Detroit producer/DJ. And that's what the savvy folks who head Research have done, tapping DJ Stingray (aka Sherard Ingram), one of the masters of innovative electro with Drexciya and Urban Tribe, to hail their fourth year of expanding minds and moving bodies. His own tracks are rhythmically quicksilvery and sinisterly atmospheric (epitomized by “Who's Watching the Watchers”), but he keeps his DJ sets funky and elastic without jettisoning the undercurrent of menace. Check out his BBC 1 Essential Mix from 2019 on YouTube for an example of Stingray’s wicked deck skills and storming selections.
