Apocalypse Now #10 presents a 4 hour serving of Big Room European party goodness at the Button Factory. Industrialyzer will need no introduction to a lot of Dublin’s underground party goers and we felt it was time for him to step into the big room having entertained at smaller venues around Dublin. Opening proceedings will be Globox and Phobiq boss Sasha Carassi for his debut Irish show. Sasha has been tearing across the continent with his marathon DJ sets and his to the point brand of stylish Italian dance floor busting productions.
This is the second installment in our count down to the end of the Mayan Calendar. Button Factory and Ceoltronic are teaming up with Tenth Planet Music for this show who first introduced Industrialyzer to the Irish scene. If you haven’t seen these artists before, NOW is the time and the Button Factory is the place on Friday the 24th of February.
Industrialyzer (Drumcode, Kombination Research //Portugal)
No need for introduction when it comes to Industrialyzer. First let’s introduce the music. Together with The Advent he has put his sonic stamp on the electronic music world. Since 2003 running the imprint Kombination Research with The Advent and most recently Advance Intelligence was born, a new digital label specially made for the softer ideas of the partners in crime truly they’re sound became to be an inspiration for artists to follow. Industrialyzer has branching out recently with a slew of solo released, most notably on Cari Lekebusch’s H productions.
His productions speak for themselves. His sound could be described as stripped back, but dirty and fast, heavy but clean and bursting with crazy production and musical ideas. Since 2007 The Industrialyzer has released on the crème de la crème of today’s techno imprints. With releases on Drumcode, MBElektronics, Kombination Research ,1605, Bush records, Credo, Mote Envolver, and patterns to name a few, and remixes notched up for Umek, Green Velvet, The Advent, Pig & Dan, Alex Bau, A.paul, Tom Hades .... The list goes on. All this combining to show his wide diversity in sound...
Sasha Carassi (Drumcode, Globox, Phobiq// Italy)
Sasha Carassi is one of those artists who exudes the air of a seasoned veteran, but this is not just because of the years he has been making noise in the industry; it's his unparalleled skill and work ethic that places him in such a revered position.
2010 was a seminal year for Sasha, as he managed to rise above the flux of producers hailing from his native Napoli. By leaving his mark on labels such as Drumcode, Harthouse, Sleaze, Respekt, 8 Sided Dice and many others, he established himself firmly in the world of serious electronic music which nods slyly to the dark side. All of this well-deserved hype brought on remixes and collaborations with the likes of Joseph Capriati, Brian Sanhaji, Spektre, Virgil Enzinger and others who, along with Sasha, lead the way in this scene. Sasha Carassi's plan could not be complete without his Techno love-children, Globox Recordings and Phobiq Recordings.
Artists such as Brian Sanhaji, Spektre, Slam, Adam Jay, BCR Boys, Matador and a slew of talented producers pushing the Techno envelope have all graced the labels over the past few years. No stranger to the road, Sasha has been a staple in major festivals and prestigious clubs worldwide, with the added bonus that you can catch him showing off his skills on the decks with actual vinyl, since he himself has been an avid collector since the late 80s.
