about

[ITK004]

Urban Exploration is an audio/visual collective from Leeds, UK. The group currently consists of six artists who come together to collaborate on various projects, including running experimental music events, creating short films and video for VJing, making field recordings in abandoned buildings, performing improvised synthesizer music and producing banging techno and electro tracks. 

The group place great importance on improvising as much of their music as possible, and regularly meet up to jam on their large collection of home-made modular synthesizers, keyboards, drum machines, tape echo units, stompboxes, and synchronised laptops. Every track starts off life as a live jam, with little processing used to turn them into finished pieces of music, giving Urban Exploration's tunes a dense, lo-fi quality, with many unexpected twists and turns.  

Influenced as much by dub, ambient and noise artists as they are dance music, Urban Exploration's musical output often focuses on the creation of intense soundscapes, that then evolves to include heavy techno or industrial beats as the music progresses. Their live shows are often completely improvised with no-one really knowing where they will be taken next. The addition of live VJing and audience interaction make their live shows and events unique experiences. They always aim to balance their experimental sound design and working methods with accessible melody and vigorous dancefloor workouts.
