About the event
The rise of live dance music has been notable in recent years— advancements in technology affording more opportunities than ever to innovate and create in real time. Tonight has no less than three examples of what makes this form of performance so essential. Octave One are titans of the Detroit second wave, few can hope to match the furious fun of KiNK in full sample and loop-heavy flow, while FJAAK reaffirm Berlin as the global epicentre of powerful techno.
Look closer at what’s on offer and things grow stronger still. Minimal would be a far poorer place without Luciano’s output. Paco Osuna remains at the top of Ibiza’s pecking order for pure stomp. Cinthie continues to procure and play vital house cuts. KETTAMA is among the most talked about emergents in raw, bouncing bangers. Those who haven’t tracked down Elliot Adamson’s recent succession of intricate and wildly varied electronica albums have probably heard him drop disco to rapturous response. A man whose taste is varied and astute, by now it’s almost unnecessary to mention host Patrick Topping, and his passion for rave samples, hoovers and spanking drums.
