Ben Sims b2b DVS1
Techno heavyweights Ben Sims & DVS1 are joining their forces and its 2017 world premiere! Quite simply, if you know techno, you know these guys. From UK raves through the 90’s Ben Sims became in demand DJ, and later a label boss, producer and internationally recognized techno legend in his own right. DVS1 is one of the most prominent figures in US music landscape today and resident of Berghain with some epic releases so far on his Hush, then Klockworks and Transmat. This is a combo no one should miss! Get a glimpse of what to expect below.
Berlin based DJ, producer and label owner Len Faki is one of the most outstanding and in-demand artists in techno’s present age. He is an internationally requested DJ, whose productions and remixes are played by techno’s most prominent names. Being a resident at Berlin’s prime techno club Berghain since its opening in 2004 keeps him open-minded as both, DJ and producer. His sets are always epic and seems like Len always know which track to play.
Some say Nastia is an overrated DJ, we say she is definitely underrated. Ukrainian is a DJ first, with some envious technical skills and great music taste. Her sets are intense and she tend to fly from one genre to another so after old school beats you can expect to hear tracks such as Rod-Hor kicking which makes the crowd go crazy. She is mixing everything from minimal to drum & bass to industrial techno with ease. And you should check the gems she plays from her Propaganda imprint. Expect the unexpected from this set.
Can’t go more Detroit Techno than Octave One and their outstanding live sets. They’ve been in the game since 1981 and left their mark in the history of electronic music. We got the chance to hear them twice, and it’s unforgettable. Motor City techno pioneers Octave One will always shell down the dance floor with their live sets. Laurence and Lenny always make sure everything explodes in ecstatic energy. Their music have been on the DJ playlists already over two decades, so we can say that epic is the least to expect.
Etruria Beat boss Luca Agnelli in our humble opinion is one of the most exciting names you can hear. His imprint goes from strength to strength off the back of his hard work and select signings, and this is also the case with his sets. Great musical taste makes his sets uplifting and rolling with great techno. His own music has been igniting dance floors across the globe, and after the debut on Drumcode with his remix talents on a Moby classic last year, he recently prepared Hypericum for the label’s compilation. Dark, energetic and pounding techno set is what you can expect from Luca Agnelli.
