Picnic In The Cellar presents Kink photo gallery
Next up Picnic are heading back underground to The Spice Cellar to team up with Reckless Republic with a seriously exciting headliner from Bulgaria (where else?)
Having been raving to the sounds of early EDM since the age of 12, KiNK has established himself as the most accomplished house and techno dudes on the scene, with releases on some of the top labels around - we're talking imprints like Rush Hour, Poker Flat, Ovum, Liebe*Detail and Mule Musiq. The big boys. His work with collaboration partner Neville Watson has, on top of all that, cemented him as a prolific, versatile and inventive electronic artist. The duo's latest release on Rush Hour features Hercules & Love Affair member Kim Ann Foxman and exemplifies their love of classic house and ability to delight both DJs and punters.
His passion for hardware and sound manipulation translates from the studio into the performance world spectacularly, resulting in an unreal live show that spans old school chicago house, quality acid, deep techno and whatever else suits the occasion. Having delighted audiences everywhere from Italy to Israel, he placed in RA's Top 20 live acts of 2011 poll - sandwiched between Modeselektor and Kollektiv Turmstrasse - proving he's one of the world's most exciting electronic performers.
Either side of KiNK's set, you'll be treated to the sounds of Picnic's own Matt Trousdale, Kali & Mike Witcombe playing a back to back set, and Spice lord Murat Kilic. The doors will be flung open at 10pm and the party rolls into Spice After Hours at 4am so you can keep on dancing the night away. Presale tickets are $25 through Resident Advisor and once you're stamped you can come and go as you please until 10am.
