About Plaid

Since the early '90s, British duo Plaid have been steadily releasing an innovative brand of electronic music marked by playful melodies and tricky time signatures. Comprising Ed Handley and Andy Turner, both original members of Black Dog Productions, the duo combined influences like '80s electro and Detroit techno, greatly contributing to the British form of home-listening techno, which would gradually come to be known as IDM. The duo came into their own after splitting from Black Dog in 1995 and releasing critically acclaimed albums such as 1997's Not for Threes (which included appearances by regular collaborators Björk and Nicolette) and 2001's Double Figure. Plaid devoted much of the late 2000s to scoring films such as Heaven's Door (2008) before returning to studio work with albums like Reachy Prints (2014) and Polymer (2019), which blended acoustic and electronic elements. The duo explored sci-fi and artificial intelligence with 2022's Feorm Falorx.
