OD Muzique + Friends
Disco Electronica has without a doubt become one of the highlights of the Sankeys monthly calendar. The way in which DE has amassed a following, affectionately known as the D.E faithful, is a testament to the Residents and founders OD Muzique, the Sankeys goers and most importantly the high calibre of their guest DJ’s. This cannot apply anymore so to the two DJ’s who will be joining them to celebrate in style for their milestone 4th Birthday Party. Both Dubfire and Ben Klock are legends in their own right. Between the two of them they have probably played every Club worth playing on the planet, and released some of the biggest tracks in Electronic music history.
In 2006 - after 15 ground-breaking years topping charts, winning Grammys, and earning acclaim as one-half of legendary electronic partnership Deep Dish - Dubfire returned to his roots: a diverse foundation spanning punk, industrial/new wave, jazz, dub, hip-hop, house and techno. "I Feel Speed," his first solo release, is a remake of the classic Love and Rockets track with Dubfire himself on vocals. It marked a musical crossroads in his passage towards a deeper and darker sound. As Dubfire's productions delved into techno's moodier, sonically edgy dimensions, critics and fans alike celebrated the new direction with admiration and enthusiasm. His list of both productions and remixes are endless, tracks such as Diablo, Grindhouse, I Feel Speed, Split the line are just a handful of tunes that have graced the ears of every techno fan in the world, and his continued work with labels such as Cocoon, Minus and get Physical inspires the masses. Voted Number 14 in Resident Advisors Top 100 DJ poll, a placement that will undoubtedly rise in this year’s poll Dubfire is one not to be missed. And if that wasn’t enough look who we have joining him….
Berlin born DJ, producer and label owner Ben Klock is without a doubt one of the most significant characters in techno’s recent history. A resident at Berghain (voted 2009 best club in the world) since its opening in 2004, he has been able to leave his mark on the club’s unique sound, in turn the special space influenced Klock’s approach as a DJ and producer as well.
Playing techno sets full of hypnotic, deep and heavy grooves, releasing records on Ostgut Ton and last but not least the aesthetics of his own label Klockworks (founded in 2006), have earned him an excellent international reputation over the last few years.
Together these two will be a formidable force in the Basement, a techno showcase that has to be witnessed, and with OD Muzique in support on D.E’s 4th Birthday, this is set to be a celebration to remember.
