Continuing our 5th year celebrations, nomadic techno party DANZSHLAG is back in the southwest:
We'll be landing in Bristol this SATURDAY 27th OCTOBER to celebrate HALLOWEEN gore-to-the-floor shlag-style. Our party lands on the same date as Bristol's Zombiewalk, so if you have plans to join the march of the living dead, you know where the entrails should lead! Intimate basement party at Take5 Cafe, zombie flesh-eaters... it's an exquisite deathly match-made in hell
This will be a RANCID DRESS affair, so go all out... Raving Ravens, Techno Trolls, Sweaty Betties, Grubby Mummies, Boney Cronies, Dancing Bears, Severed Dreadheads, Fang-gangs, Grizzly Gits, Broomstick Babes and Darth Ravers
Witches n Glowsticks, Slime 'n grime, wizard blizzard, Ranky-skank, devouring beats, minimal criminals,
Infectious grooves via local talent from the Apologue boys, Damien Schneider and Patrick Bolton...
and of course your ghostly hosts, Bunni-Scummy-Mummy-Splanchnik and Shibby Shite-Fright-Polter-geist...
Be there or be very scared!
Born in France, Damien has been into electronic music since the tender age of 11. In 2003 Damien moved to UK, first in Cardiff and then in 2004 to Bristol. He decided to team up with several friends to create an audio visual club night in Bristol called “Cuisine”. The idea was to present innovative and interactive events which would place equal emphasis on the audio and the visual. At this time, Damien became known for his late marathon sets, gaining strong exprience from playing before or after international artists including The Advent, Oxia, Stephan Bodzin, Tony Rohr, Dj 3000, Heiko Laux, Apparat, Redshape, Arnaud Rebotini, Neil Landstrumm, Bruno Pronsato...
In 2008, Damien started producing music and his search for simplexity through music began. This idea can be described as the search of the balance between elegant melodies, clinical sounds, dissonant noises and bass-heavy drums. And it’s to support this exploration that Damien co-founded in 2010 the record label called “Apologue”, with Jamie Curnock, Jobody, and Patrick Bolton [www.apologue.co.uk].

One of the founders of the apologue imprint, Patrick's has had a fascination with electronic music for as long as he can remember, with the focus being predominately techno. Early influences were Carl Cox, Billy Nasty, Dave Clarke the Detroit contingent, and more recently the likes of Sandwell District, Ostgut Ton, Ben Klock, Truss, Perc, Monolake, Shed, Perc, , Zander VT , Redshape to name a few.
Patrick's tracks contain experimental elements, without compromising on dancefloor appeal, and the same can be said for his Dj sets.
Current projects include a combined set with fellow apologue founder Jamie Curnock, reducing tracks down to their bare elements and reconstructing them live, to give a unique "on the fly" sound that even they cannot replicate the same each time. Patrick has remixes, guest mixes and releases on labels such as Apologue, Sonntag Morgen and Gynoid Audio and Metroline.
