WHAT’S ON 10TH/11TH APRIL
MICHAEL MAYER AT OPIUM ROOMS
- Will Kinsella
- Aaron Nolan
- Garden: Southpaw
I am just back from DGTL festival in Amsterdam, and I strongly advice you to go and check out this amazing artist !
As a DJ, producer and remixer, Michael Mayer remains one of Germany’s core celebrities in dance music. It’s no secret that he spends his weekends travelling around the globe. It’s likely throughout his career he’s played in front of millions.
Then, as a co-owner of Kompakt, he spends his weekdays deciding what will be released on the label and working with the label’s artists and overseeing Kompakt’s distribution wing – the home of over 50 record labels. Amazingly enough, he manages to sneak into the studio on occasion to produce his own music and remix the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, Foals and Rufus Wainwright. And of course there is Supermayer but more on that later. It’s safe to say he loves being challenged and regardless of the pressure is never putting less than 100% of his heart and soul into everything he does.
BUTCH AT DISTRICT 8
- Tino Nova B2B Sirlanka
Constantly working in parallels – drenched by a potent mixture of juxtaposition and fluidity in both his sets and his productions – Bülent Gürler AKA Butch, fuses the grey-area space between music of the body and mind. With over 20 years consumed by a thirst for electronic music, the Alzey-born, Mainz raised entity has released on leading imprints such as Desolat, Cocoon, Rekids, Sei Es Drum and beyond, while maintaining a solid DJ schedule that’s seen him open the minds of crowds at fabric, Time Warp and his residency at Berlin’s Watergate.
BOB MOSES & DREEMS AT OPIUM ROOMS
- Gavin Francis & Ru Finnegan
Both djs will be playing a Live set.
The last time these guys played was to a full house in Opium and they were amazing. Signing to one of the worlds most prestigious indie labels Domino Records last year has fast tracked them to being one of the most exciting and forward thinking electronic groups. Being label mates with Jon Hopkins, George Fitzgerald and Animal Collective gives you a good idea of what they are about.
Check out their debut album ‘ All In All’ out now on Domino Records!
On support will be Australian hypnotic dub-house producer DREEMS.
