Some magic nights are in store when Liverpool's Voodoo returns to the Carling Academy after the summer break.
Vitalic's been busy this year, with 2005 seeing the release of his debut long player "OK Cowboy", remixing duties on Björk's "Who Is It?" (out on One Little Indian) and numerous festival bookings across Europe over the summer. It's hard to believe that it's really been 4 years since International Deejay Gigolos released his classic Poney EP.
But Vitalic is not all that's on offer at Voodoo in September ... James Ruskin, resident at Berlin's legendary - recently closed - Tresor techno club, shares the limelight with The 65D Mavericks as Voodoo returns to its regular Saturday night slot the following weekend.
The month will be closed out a fortnight later on the 24th with Luke Slater and German electro master-producer Anthony Rother. Luke became more widely known outside of techno circles with the more electro-styled albums "Freak Funk", "Wireless", and 2002's 80's-inspired "Alright On Top". 2005 has seen the re-release of his 1994 artist album, 4 Cornered Room (out on General Production Recordings) under his 7th Plain alias, and the release of a 2-CD mix, "Fear And Loathing" which name-checks productions from Ben Sims, Jeff Mills, Marco Bailey, Adam Beyer and Two Lone Swordsmen, amongst others.
Although Anthony Rother should need no introduction, he is perhaps not as well known outside of his native Germany as he deserves to be. From his seminal "Sex With The Machines" EP to the more recent "Popkiller" long player, Rother's productions have featured on compilations from Sven Väth to Dave Clarke. Few can lay claim, as Rother can, to not only having re-made a Kraftwerk track (a cover of Trans-Europe Express), but also to having been re-mixed by Kraftwerk (Karl Barthos's re-mix of Rother's "Little Computer People").
As RA previously wrote when reporting Voodoo's new home at the Liverpool Carling Academy - Back With a Bang, indeed!
