It all began 3 years ago when Compakt had their first party and a new era in Edinburgh’s techno scene began. Since then they have played host to some of the world’s top techno DJs including Joey Beltram, Phil Kieran, Robert Babicz, Dustin Zahn and Gary Beck.
In that time one of the most impressive acts we had was Perc and it was therefore with great pleasure that he was invited back for another turn behind the decks at Cab Vol. From his earliest demos to his current position as a key figure in the global techno scene, Perc (aka Ali Wells) has taken the established forms of the music he loves and twisted them into something new and fresh. Building up successful relationships with scene-leading labels such as Drumcode, Ovum, Kompakt and CLR whilst unleashing a strong run of releases on his own, Perc’s Trax label has seen his influence and support grow even further. With each release, his sonic experimentation has taken another leap forward without losing sight of the dance floor.Support in the main room comes from DD and Bruno FK.
In the second room expect a mash up of D’n’B, dubstep and electro from Compakt resident DJ Phrase. To compliment his skills we are honoured to welcome drum’n’bass don Special Ed. As he is the promoter and resident of Homegrown and owner of Special Records, expect nothing but the freshest dubplates.
The Speakeasy will be hosted by the Edinburgh University Dance Music Society. Their resident DJs Tami, Frizza Fraze and [sHIFT] will be spinning energetic house and electro tunes.
As we're in the celebratory mood, it'll be a bargain £0 (yes, free!) before 12am, and a staggering £5 after. So no excuses - come help us celebrate!
See you on the dancefloor,
