Tomorrow night is Thursday night, which means INPUT is back for another round of bass-driven hijinx at Output. This time around, it’s taking a cue from the other nights of the week, as with many artists making their way towards Detroit for Movement Festival, a couple of excellent producers are making a special stop for a Thursday night affair at the venue. Taking over will be DVS1 (Hush, Klockworks) and Steffi (Dolly, Ostgut Ton) as the special headliners, with local don Anthony Parasole (The Corner) keeping the dark-room vibes at its apex all night onward. Tickets are still on sale and it would be unwise to miss a night like this, especially since it’s on a Thursday. Consider this a way to lighten the weekend load — by that I mean, one less party to go to during Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s going to be a good, old-fashioned house/techno rager at INPUT, best not miss it. Preview and flyer are post-jump.
Yesterday’s release of “Where Are We Now,” the first song by David Bowie in a decade, takes a overt look back at his legendary days in Berlin in the mid-’70s, recording what has become known as the “Berlin Trilogy” of albums—Low, Heroes and Lodger—with Brian Eno. This infamous period produced such Bowie classics as “Sound + Vision” and “Heroes,” but perhaps more importantly, it found the songwriter and producer duo exploring the realms of instrumental ambient music on many of the tracks. Since that fertile creative period, the shape-shifting glam rock Bowie has often explored the electronic side of music. Here are some of his best efforts.
Tonight in Brooklyn, The Bunker houses something somewhat monumental; two rooms will be taken over by the likes of some of the best electronic producers to release music this year. While we know that Peter Van Hoesen has been doing things right for a while now on a multitude of labels, his latest album Perceiver (on his own Time To Express imprint) has come out to critical acclaim within the techno community, catapulting him to a level of subdued mastery among dancefloor enthusiasts. However, while Van Hoesen will be implementing his own techno variants over a lengthy set in the back room, the front room will be taken over by the likes of Andy Stott’s Modern Love label, presenting a showcase of sorts. The front room features Unsound veterans Demdike Stare, Andy Stott, as well as solo sets from the Demdike boys under their separate production aliases (Miles, Sean Canty). There’s also rumblings that the oft-mentioned but rarely heard Millie & Andrea and HATE production monikers will come out of the shadows tonight in the front room, so in all likelihood, bring a tent and camp out. Check out the flier, ticket links, and some quality vibes from Modern Love & Van Hoesen after the jump.
Francois K’s seminal Deep Space events have always had thunderous and tremendous guests delivering their brand of sonic influence to whoever’s listening, but there’s always something extra special when it comes to debuting at the event. Lest we forget someone like Joy Orbison who smashed it in 2011 with an unquestionably impressive three-hour set, tonight the decks are graced by none other than the man known as Objekt. Having made a distinct impression upon the circumventing scenes of techno and bass music, Objekt has released only a handful of records, but is known for his expansive DJ sets and his impressively distinct brand of off-centre dance music. To say that we’re delighted he’s here would be an understatement, and there’s no reason that anyone should miss out on his debut at Cielo tonight. Check out the details on tonight, as well as the flyer after the jump.
Ben Klock is one of the big room resident DJs at the infamous Berghain who is finally getting attention outside the massive concrete walls of the world’s best techno club, with gigs around the world. Mixmag released this nice 10 minute interview with Klock. Sorry—no video footage from inside the Berghain, where all photography is highly forbidden.
