The Parisian club boat launches its European Series with a Warsaw showcase this weekend.
The capital's famed floating venue will be embarking on a clubbing tour this summer—without even leaving the dock. Instead respected institutions throughout Europe have been invited to curate an evening representative of their local electronic scene. Warsaw's Institut Adam Mickiewicz kicks off the series with a lineup consisting of some of Poland's techno elite. Trapez artist SLG and Marcin Czubala from Berlin-based Mobilee will both be playing live, along with Jacek Sienkiewicz whose releases outside of his own Recognition imprint have primarily found homes on Sven Väth's Cocoon Recordings. Special guest Pier Bucci adds a Latin twist—breaking the rules somewhat in hailing from Chile.
We move onto Rome next with a disco spiked effort from the city's self-governed cultural centre Brancaleone. Respected electronic composer Maurizio Martusciello will also present his Martux_m Crew in a live audio visual show. Germany will be represented by a label showcase from Frankfurt's own house and disco mecca Robert Johnson. Arto Mwambe, Massimiliano Pagliara and Oliver Hafenbauer are billed for the Live at Robert Johnson night, headed by the club's co-founder Ata. July wraps up in London, with Corsica Studios teaming up with the Off Modern Collective to offer a silent disco and Trouble Vision hosting the likes of Space Dimension Controller and Will Saul.
In August Batofar calls in to Brussels for some Fuse-fed techno, Glasgow's Sub Club for local duo Optimo and an experimental evening in Amsterdam before finally pulling in to Venice for some Italian-style house.
