Hi all, and welcome to 2011!

This year Abandon Silence promises to give you the very best in new music, reviews and of course gigs. We have already organised our shows for now until March, with a very tasty first birthday being planned for June time.

Our first gig of the year is to be held at The Shipping Forecast as always, and features two of our favourite artists of the past 12 months.

Abandon Silence is proud to present our biggest line up to date, with two of electronic music’s rising stars coming to The Shipping Forecast on January 27th.

Our headliner is the anonymous SBTRKT. Having played our launch night back in June, Sbtrkt has gone from strength to strength, collaborating with Sinden and releasing music on the Mercury Award winning Young Turks. His DJ sets are a visceral hybrid of house, dubstep, garage and everything in between. Sbrtkt’s anonymity is maintained even when on stage, playing behind a tribal mask, letting the music do all the work.

Joining Sbtrkt we have the man of the moment, GIRL UNIT. His recent release, Wut, on the Night Slugs label, has been hailed as one of the tracks of the year by Pitchfork and Fact to name a couple. He has emerged from nowhere to become one of the most acclaimed artists of 2010, and we are incredibly proud to gift him his Liverpool debut.

Joining Sbtrkt and Girl Unit will be the ever reliable Abandon Silence residents Rich Furness and Horza.
