    In Conversation with The Radiophonic Workshop & Stealing Sheep

    In Conversation with The Radiophonic Workshop & Stealing Sheep

    It’s a unique collaboration of electronic legends and indie favourites - the past and present combining to create something futuristic and extraordinary. La Planete Sauvage – the soundtrack to an iconic 1973 film – is a project that sees The Radiophonic Workshop and Stealing Sheep join forces, for an album released to mark 2021’s Delia Derbyshire Day. And this July it comes to bluedot for a very special performance on the Sunday of this year’s festival.
    This is the bluedot podcast with the Radiophonic Workshop and Stealing Sheep.

    In Conversation with Kelly Lee Owens

    She’s the producer, songwriter and DJ whose avant-garde techno pop has seen her release three extraordinary albums to date. The most recent – LP.8 – was released earlier this year. Her combination of ethereal, atmospheric and at times industrial has seen her win fans in Bjork, St Vincent and John Cale, all of whom she has gone on to collaborate with. Having joined us at bluedot in 2019, she returns as part of our Friday line-up this July alongside Spiritualized, Kojey Radical, Groove Armada and more.
