James Connolly, better known as L-Vis 1990, has been at the forefront of electronic dance music for nearly a decade, leaving his mark in every facet of the game: as a gifted producer, a boundary-pushing DJ and promoter, a forward-thinking co-founder of the influential Night Slugs label, a cultivator of new talent, and, increasingly, as an envoy who brings electronic music to new spaces and platforms. As a musician, his palette includes lurid Technicolor’s of house, electro and synth-pop, and a laser focus on body-jacking, straight-ahead club music.

Launched in 2010, Night Slugs immediately established on the leading edge of club music informed not just by the traditions of Chicago house and Detroit techno but also Southern hip-hop and UK grime and beyond. The label’s sound may be diverse but it’s feel is distinctive. Night Slugs has become a truly cult label, with a reputation for quality and innovation rivalled by few others and with a globally spread fan base. The label’s founders Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 will be joined by Girl Unit and visualist Nic Hamilton for their 10th Anniversary Showcase at Lunchmeat Festival 2018.

Nic Hamilton is a visual artist, collaborating with record labels and a wide range of electronic music producers (e.g. Actress, Hudson Hohawke, Bauer, Bok Bok, Future Brown to name a few), creating evocative pieces of visual and aural synchronicity. His hyper-glossy and immersive futurist worlds capture experiences of natural and constructed environments fusing CG, film, music and spatial design with unparalleled execution. His progressive 3D and animation skills and non-narrative optical overloads will accompany the Night Slugs 10th Anniversary Showcase in a multi-hour stage takeover.
