It's been six long years since Silent Servant's last Sydney gig, so don't hold your breath until the next one.
Strange Signals presents Silent Servant
We welcome Silent Servant back after 6 years. Juan Mendez is a provocateur, iconoclast, an instigator, a vital figure of today's techno scene, with roots running deep into the post punk and EBM scene, he may be the artist who is most likely to be unlikely.
in the wake of Sandwell District’s 2011 demise, along with Regis and James Ruskin, Silent Servant founded the Jealous God label. In its short existence, they have already cut-up and reinterpreted many of the conventions of the techno world, forging a unique identity in the process.
Equally at home smashing the main floor of Berghain as he is a dark, sweaty club in a Los Angeles laneway, he will bring his unique form of techno mutant music to the Civic's fine sound system.
Step into the void and experience Buzz Kull. Marc Dwyer's live show will enthral and hit your dark heart, with pounding rigid drum machines, deep jagged synths and a voice that will persist into the bleakest of your dreams.
Signed to Sydney label Burning Rose, a label that stands alone in Australia, influenced by aesthetics of labels such as Blackest Ever Black, Buzz Kull is set to release a new album in April. Come and get a preview of that missive here.
Loveless straddles the razor of gothic romance and a technical dystopia that manifests as a packed dancefloor. Loveless has steadily built up a name for herself in Sydney, with a sound that seamlessly blends techno, acid, industrial and EBM, and has recently supported artists such as Paula Temple, Rebekah and The Horrorist. The love is real.
