Desolat's co-founder is booked to play shows with labelmate tINI over the April long weekend.
Desolat label boss Martin Buttrich and techno DJ tINI will visit Australia to play two shows over the Easter long weekend.
Since teaming up with Timo Maas in the mid-'90s, Buttrich has established himself both as a masterful studio producer and solo artist, although he has done so relatively inconspicuously. Currently only wearing his collaboration hat with label partner Loco Dice, he has emerged in more recent years as an accomplished electronic musician, releasing his debut album Crash Test in 2010 and a handful of twelve-inches on labels like Poker Flat, Cocoon and Planet E. Four years after co-founding the label, Buttrich released his first record on Desolat, indicating that his focus has become more about working on his own music than that of other artists. German labelmate tINI will be joining him at each of the shows, having had her debut LP, Tessa, released through the imprint last October. Increasingly in demand, she cracked the top half of RA's Top DJs of 2011 Poll at the end of last year for the first time.
This tour will be tINI's first and Buttrich's second to Australia, and will begin in Sydney on April 5th. The gig will be held at The Civic Underground from 10:00 PM, where the two will be supported by Javi Sampol. Melbourne will get their turn on Easter Sunday, the 8th of April, at an Electric Owl party held at Brown Alley, amongst a heavyweight lineup also starring eccentric Detroit house luminary Moodymann and experimental techno producer Roman Flügel. Tickets to the Sydney show are available here on RA.
