Andy Turner and Ed Handley were once in pioneering British electronic group the Black Dog with Ken Downie. Between that project and Plaid, which the duo finally dubbed their collaboration in 1991, Turner and Handley have been busy writing original music and doing remixes for the likes of Björk and Grandmaster Flash. Since its inception, Plaid has been one of the pillars of the IDM movement, which includes influential peers in such bands as Autechre, Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin. Across seven albums and two soundtracks, Plaid has cultivated a reputation for making electronic music that somehow sounds very organic. Currently touring in support of its latest offering, Scintilli, the duo makes a rare stop in Denver with what promises to be a memorable immersion in techno bliss.
