Idiac releases 'Pan Sapiens' single for Brain Tumour charity

Idiac has joined forces with fellow Pingdiscs artist Tarsiform, to release a 2-track single in honour of our friend David Smith, who recently died of a rare form of brain tumour. Idiac's track 'Pan Sapiens' is a joyous yet bittersweet celebration of David's life, whereas Tarsiform's track 'Fligilf' is more of glitchy lament on his passing. All proceeds go to The Brain Tumour Charity.

Watch the official video for 'Farewell to UL7'

Idiac dares to venture out of the house in this promotional video for 'Farewell to UL7'. The track is all about loss, so we find Idiac wandering around a local park looking a little lost in his dressing gown and slippers, keen to make his way home to more familiar territory. The video was directed, shot and edited by multi-award-winning filmmaker Keith Allott (aka Badshoes Film).
