Regular readers of these pages will know of our love for Brooklyn-based producer Taylor McFerrin; we gave his debut album Early Riser a 9/10 don't you know - our Deputy Editor William Caston Cook describing it in these terms:

"For me this is music as motion, as stagnant pools of all thought flushed, as the bliss of nothingness extended, it is 42 minutes of arriving. The natural next step for electronic music, integrating the warmth of Soul and the musicianship of Jazz in a way that feels free of form but is actually densely controlled and structured, you don't notice how complex it is such is the level of skill on show."

They're nice words aren't they. The sold-out show at Dalston's Birthdays was the multi-instrumentalist's debut headline show, and he delivered a performance befitting of such an occasion. Most tracks from Early Riser got an airing - but - Taylor gave us a little speech prior to the show announcing his intentions to give the album a new lease of life in a live setting, and re-invent and tweak tracks to make a "one off" experience of a live show just that. An experience. A delightful rendition of Radiohead's 'Everything In It's Right Place' also added to the night's splendour.

Our photographer Nicolai Amter was on hand in the packed basement to takes these images:
