You come to, and youâ€™re on a moving carriage. Looking around, you see people, all kinds of people â€“ your people. Then you hear the bass. Feint at first, but growing louder. You turn and sheâ€™s leaning towards you, anticipating your question.
â€œWhere are we?â€
She smiles, before shaking her head slightly.
â€œWrong question. You should ask meâ€¦ where we get off.â€ You can only just make out her words above the rising bass, as more and more people begin to surge towards the front of the carriage.
â€œAnd where might that be?â€
Again, she crouches down until her face is adjacent to yours. â€œThe end of the line,â€ she whispers. Then the bass drops, and all goes black â€“ Konrad Black.
Canadian producer/DJ/lothario Konrad Black will headline Subsonicâ€™s regular long weekend finale bash, End of the Line, with a live set at The Abercrombie on Monday October 1. From his beginnings in hip hop and DnB, Konrad Black has carved out a niche in the underground dance scene with a sound that is based around huge hooks, acid-tinged grooves and throbbing basslines to create what Black himself describes as â€œbassline banshees drowning in a moat of synthsâ€. Renowned for original productions like â€˜Medusa Smileâ€™ and â€˜Draconiaâ€™ as well as a host of remixes, namely his reworkings of Snaxâ€™s â€˜Honeymoonâ€™s Overâ€™ and Audionâ€™s â€˜Mouth To Mouthâ€™, Black is also a co-founder of the seminal Wagon Repair label, and mixed the third instalment of the Watergate compilation series, which featured his collaboration with Loco Dice production hand Martin Buttrich, â€˜Siamese Connectionâ€™.
While Black has been relatively quiet on the production front over the past few years, he has recently released an EP with Art Department, â€˜Graveyard Tanâ€™, and dropped a fresh cut, â€˜Devastatorâ€™, on Lee Burridge and Matthew Dekayâ€™s Get Weird label. â€˜Devastatorâ€™ was worth the wait, being hailed as an â€œinky black chug-monkeyâ€ that will take out the trash wherever itâ€™s played â€“ and itâ€™s been getting played in clubs all over the shop, with support from the likes of Francois K, Damian Lazarus and Ivan Smagghe.
Blackâ€™s return down under will be the centrepiece of a twelve-hour event that will also feature a host of renowned locals over two rooms, inside and outside of the Abercrombie, including Peret Mako, Glitch, Marcotix, Jamie Lloyd and an additional surprise guest. The long weekend ends with a blackout.
