Mikron - LRO (Open Ear exclusive)

Next up for our artist profiles is Australian born, Irish-based duo - and brothers! - Mikron. A Mikron live set in Ireland is an extremely rare thing which coupled with their sleek and driving electo / techno makes them a pretty perfect fit for Open Ear. Michael and Ciaran Corcoran have been releasing music under the Mikron alias since 2012, firstly on Zone - run by an ol OE fave, The Hacker - and then also on Sheffield's much lauded Central Processing Unit. CPU released their first Long Player "Warning Score" a fully realised, pristine collection of crunching, syncopated drums and washes of moody synths and robotic basslines. Fans of the aformentioned The Hacker and the electro of E.R.P. and Gesloten Cirkel should be able to find plenty to shake their rump to as they bring their live show to the main Northshore Tent on Friday night. As a teaser, Mikron have cut us off with an exclusive, currently unreleased track, "LRO"
