Politburo HQ and Turnmills are proud to present the first in a series of special parties at the venue entitled Modernism. The night is aptly named too as it will be a celebration of the very best in international electronica dance music.
It’s easy to forget just how much electronic dance culture tore the music scene apart back in the late 80s and things have never been quite the same since. Electronica is now intertwined with every aspect of modern life but it’s on the dancefloor where it’s most at home and where new ideas are hatched and new paths forged. Modernism will be a celebration of that fact and we have assembled a selection of the finest international practitioners around to provide the perfect soundtrack in three spaces.
Full details of the line-up will be revealed very soon, including the Post-Modernism after party where we’ll be reaching into the world of minimalism, but we are proud to announce the involvement of the following so far:-
Stacey Pullen: One of Detroit’s favourite sons and the man behind Blackflag Recordings. Stacey is a rare visitor to the UK but his album ‘Today Is The Tomorrow You Were Promised Yesterday’ remains a seminal moment in techno history. Expect deep Afro-infused and jazz-tinged techno from a true master.
Blake Baxter: an equally influential Detroit figure who cut his teeth in the early days of acid house and now has a globe-trotting DJ schedule and a production career that boosts releases on techno labels like Underground Resistance, Tresor, Disko B and more. Blake has his finger on the pulse as strongly as ever and has recently collaborated with Systematic Recordings’ Marc Romboy.
Moodmusic 10th Anniversary Tour featuring Sasse & Dave DK: the legendary Berlin imprint come to London as part of a series of parties celebrating 10 years of the label. Head honcho Sasse AKA Freestyle Man AKA Klas Lindblad will be joined by Dave DK who is shortly to release his debut album and is one of the latest talents to emerge from the Berlin scene.
Soma Records present Silicone Soul & Repeat Repeat: When it comes to quality electronica Glasgow-based Soma Records are a benchmark for many and will be represented at Modernism by Silicone Soul who have become one of their most successful artists in recent years. With two albums under their belt already, the duo of Craig Morrison and Graeme Reedie have given the tech house imprint a unique twist. Joining them will be Repeat Repeat playing live on stage and their recently released debut album, ‘Squints’, has received much praise from across the board.
Giles Smith: secretsundaze co-promoter and resident, and inspirational figure on the UK underground electronic scene, Giles will add a distinctly London flavour to proceedings and give a taste of why the capital is home to one of the most thriving scenes in the world right now.
Gavin Herlihy: Also coming up from the London scene and attracting much attention already with his debut single 'Machine Ate My Homework' – signed to Moodmusic Records, this became one of the underground anthems of 2006. Gavin has plenty more tricks up his sleeve too and grows in stature as a DJ every time he plays.
Final details to follow soon but this promises to be a very special event indeed. Techno, tech house, electro, acid house, minimal… forget the labels and think past present and future electronica. Come down and be inspired.
