TECHNO + + + + ART + + + + VISUALS
@ The EGG basement
For this special one-off show, we are flying Greece’s Nikola Gala and DJ Schwa (half of Czech-Australian formation Shades Of Gray) over to London. Scotland’s Michael L Penman, who is responsible for a number of hits on Ovum, Tronic and Richie Hawtin’s Minus12, will be also in attendance to supply the beats. Roland UK artist Nick Elia will add some acid and raw sounds to the mix with his DJ /live hybrid set up that incorporates the original TB303 and a new TR-8.
On support duties, we are happy to have Jaded residents and Superfreq regular guests Broken Neon (Malchevsky & The Little Dude) & Thomas Tesla.
Tomáš Vavříček - a well-respected multimedia artist from the Czech Republic, will provide the art installation and visuals.
The terrace is hosted by DJ Mag UK with massive line up featuring Detroit Swindle duo in an extended vinyl set, Seven Davis Jr. (live), Glenn Astro and many more.
Part of the exciting wave of Greek talent, coming up in House and Techno over the last decade, Nikola Gala is a prolific producer whose impeccably produced tracks have become big releases for Ibadan Records, Rekids, Freerange Records and Plastic City; all labels which represent true quality in the world of underground dance music.
Lars Dales & Maarten Smeets have had quite a run the last few years. From making music for the hell of it, to making tens of thousands of fans all over the world happy with their releases, mixes and performances; It’s almost like they appeared out of thin air. With a string of releases on renowned labels like Dirt Crew, Freerange and Tsuba, they've sucker punched the house scene and waved around their 12” scepter to rule them all.
Michal Schwa from Prague, Czech Republic is the man behind Beef records and electronic duo Shades Of Gray. SOG debut album “Soul Machine” was included in top 50 albums of 2012 by Dj Mag and charted by many key players in the scene. Constant musical output on established labels including Audiomatique, Om records, Lost My Dog, Compost or own BEEF has gained support from the likes of Shur-i-Kan, Miguel Migs, Luna City Express, Miss Kittin, Jimpster, Pezzner, Laurent Garnier, Smash TV and The Timewriter.
►MICHAEL L PENMAN
Scottish, Michael L Penman is responsible for number of top releases on Ovum, Tronic and Richie Hawtin M-nus12. His music production has been supported by Huxley, Josh Wink, Adam Beyer, Gregor Tresher, Kenny Larkin, Dan Curtin, Anja Schneider, Nicole Moudaber, Yousef and many more. Michael had recently debuted at our very own Fabric for WYS party.
Currently residing in Essen, Glenn Astro has spent a bit more than half his life DJing and producing, first in the realm of hip-hop and more recently with an ear toward dance music. After his first releases in this style in 2011 and 2012, Glenn really went for it in 2013 with a trio of EPs that showed hip-hop's soul and house music's drive are in no way mutually exclusive. This 26-year-old may embrace the latter these days, but when you close your eyes and let his gritty low-end do its dirty work, you'll hear plenty of the former's bump still kicking around in there.
Roland UK artists & audio lecturer at SAE institute on the daylight, techno DJ, live performer and studio equipment geek at night. The solid foundation of electronic music creation came from his mentors, international producers Alan Fisher (Bjork, LFO) and Kevin Paul (Moby, Depeche Mode).Nick has spent many years working as a producer and sound engineer in studios around the UK and Germany.
Please note: This will also be the official after party for Republic Artists boat party.
