Eleven gigs are confirmed for the Dutch techno fixture, this Thursday in Santiago.
A figurehead within the Netherlands' techno scene, Rachmad has been at it for more than 25 years. His productions have come by way of his own name and a glut of other aliases, with Sterac being the most prominent—the past couple years have seen Sterac appear by way of solo records on Mote-Evolver, Delsin and Klockworks, and remixes on the likes of CLR and Taapion.
This set of DJ gigs across Americas is a actually combination of Rachmad and Sterac bookings. It starts in Santiago this Thursday night, which leads to Córdoba, Argentina and Asunción, Paraguay over the following two evenings. Next weekend has him swinging through Montañita, Ecuador and Colombia, by way of Medellín and Bogotá.
Later in November, Rachmad will fly north, hitting Montreal on Friday the 13th and then touching down in Brooklyn for two nights at Output: one as Sterac on the 14th, where fellow techno stalwarts Adam X (who just dropped a new ADMX-71 album on L.I.E.S.) and Anthony Parasole will also hit the decks. The other, on Sunday the 15th, as Rachmad, which is billed as a house set in the club's Panther Room (there's no cover for this one). Bookings in Washington DC and LA the next weekend will finish off the tour.
Below you can listen to a Steve Rachmad versus Sterac session, mixed for Mixmag, from back in June.Tickets to the first night in Brooklyn and DC are available on RA.
