The 50-year-old DJ and producer is as influential as they come (the likes of Flying Lotus count him as a main hero), and with 20 years of beat-making and instrumental hip-hop non-conformity under his belt he’s playing a rare three-hour set to emphasise the fact. Support comes from DJ Food and Anchorsong (live).
