Albert van Abbe
FLC back "home" at Tou Scene.
The best techno- venue in town is back,
Newly renovated and with a brand new, amazing sound system.
Eindhoven’s rave veteran Albert van Abbe has been involved in many different musical and audio-visual projects over the past 17 years. Currently focused on making absorbing techno under his own name, he has found a unique creative niche where manic percussion, searching synths and wide open soundscapes exist in perfect harmony. There is a serenity to his music that is soothing and calming, while at the same time, arresting and experimental. Besides his own labels, he has released on tasteful outlets like FIGURE Jams, Semantica Records, Deep Sound Channel and Trolldans. Van Abbe is a DJ as well as live performer, speaking volumes through his machines. He played shows at Berghain, Awakenings, Tresor and DGTL just to mention a few. When not crafting melancholic and salubrious atmospheres of his own he brings this depth outwards, hosting events titled DRUM in Eindhoven and abroad.
DI.CAPA is a project born in the year 2016 from the mind of Dimitri Kanani.
Inspired by ambient and hypnotic techno, he developed his own style, with mixing dark ambient sound with some groovy bassline in order to create meaningful atmospheres that together form a deep repetitive cerebral ritual.
Creating a state of equilibrium between the club and a seductive and inescapable hypnosis,Di.CAPA pushes forward the evolution of Techno by blending the dark and light dancefloor energy both on his productions and his dj sets.
He is one of the most promising artists, who emerged out of Greek's electronic scene keeping his underground vibe.
Techno producer, scientist, inventor and rocket constructor. Oxycope’s multifacted background is reflected in his music, which spans from dystopian soundscapes to hard-hitting and groovy minimal techno.
Oxycope has had a long-standing interest in the fundamental and scientific principles that governs human response to music, and he has devised a set of three rules that he uses when composing. The first rule is that the music needs to have a time-stopping effect, that is, the music needs to manifest the feeling of a continuous “now” in its listeners. The second rule is that the music must have modality. Modality is best explained by the phenomenon where the music does not force a particular mood on its listeners. The listeners are enabled through careful sound selection to construct their own meanings, mental images and associations from the music. The music should connect with the subconscious. The third rule is simply that the music must have groove, it has to connect with your body as well as your mind to create a complete experience.
Oxycope draws his musical inspiration from a wide range of sources such as the early Detroit techno pioneers, from predecessors such as Kraftwerk, YMO and Steve Reich, to more recent Berlin-style techno as represented by Ben Klock and Nina Kraviz..
