Watch Part 1 of an exclusive live session from the aggrobeat trio

Last year we didn’t score many albums 9/10, but one of the ones that we did was ‘Life In Units’ by Sheffield aggro-beat band Blood Sport. That record – the band’s debut – twisted and turned from the off, through African rhythms, kraut wig outs and extended, strange electronics. Still, as powerful as ‘Life In Units’ was, it felt like it was always trying to leap out of the stereo and into the more fitting environment of a live setting.

At the end of 2013, Blood Sport performed at The Total Refreshment Centre in Stoke Newington, London – a creative studio and space for bands to get on, record, mix, rehearse and meet. The set – performed to a live audience and featuring tracks from ‘Life In Units’ that seamlessly segue together – was record professionally by the team at the studio, and so we’re premiering it here. This is Part 1, with Part 2 to follow next week.

As you’ll see, you should catch Blood Sport at at least one of the below live dates they’ve got lined up, including one that returns them to the TRC on June 28th.

22nd May – Corsica Studios, London w/ Nisennenmondai
13th June – Wharf Chambers, Leeds w/ Nope
14th June – Great Gatsby, Sheffield w/ Nope
28th June – Total Refreshment Centre ‘Screensaver’ show, London
