Fast and urgent, potent techno is celebrating a high right now, but there’s more to it than just a few blasting kick drums to play and producing it in a memorable way. Tonight’s BLITZ floor is about artists who slam with class and show there are many exhilarating ways to spin high-octane techno, while the Orbital Reflector show us the beauty of mellow and amble rhythms on the PLUS floor.
> Djing doesn’t feed my hungers anymore.< Is Stef Mendesisis conclusion. > I only play my music. There are no track IDs. It is and it will be live act for ever. < Is what he announced on Instagram recently and anyone who’s ever caught up with the enthusiastic and highly focussed Ukrainian artist knows about the spirited power of his urgent live-techno sets. His one-take approach to recording and producing has earned him regular releases on Ben Klock’s Klockworks imprint. The textures are dark, yet luminous and the grooves allure with a jacking, Powerhouse-reminscent appeal. Stef Mendisidis has found a unique and stunning answer to inject personality into the gloomy dashing grooves.
The synthesizer-wizz Deniro plays and produces agile Techno with just as equally profund sonic depth as Stef Mendesidis, with a rich melodic streak and engrossing psychedelic touches filled with emotions, harking back to his fondness for the soulful side of Detroit Techno. Keeping the pace are our reliable residents Glaskin, who groove with attitude and athletic tempos.
Anetha is one of France’s most exciting techno exports and quite possibly a prime example of what techno sounds sound like in the 2020’s: fast, funky and kaleidoscopic, oscillating between driving beats and deconstructed Clubsounds with influences from Trance and Bass Music. Swift, strong and sharp. A true powerhouse in the booth and beside the dance floor, the multitalented Anetha is focussed on creating new collaborative platforms to support new music and artists: whether it’s her label Mama Told Ya or the booking & management platform Mama Loves Ya, Anetha is all about collective experiences in the music scene and on the dance floor, of course. And her performance at Blitz won’t be an exception, so you’d better dress to sweat.
Supplying Munich’s underground with refined, intricate and leftfield grooves, readjusting your perception and the speed of dance music,is the esteemed local collective Orbital Reflector. This time around, they’ve invited Philip Jondo, who has acquired accolades as a Salon D’Amateur resident and as a NTS Radio contributor. He develops a refreshing, global perspective on Bass music and Techno with hints of R&B, Dancehall and Jungle that’s utterly intriguing. Chaos Angel’s occupation as a (mixed) media (visual) artist reflects on her practice as a musician too: expect a celestial journey through experimental electronic music, ambient and bass music. Collective member tbhase goes back to back with DOEPKE, whose approach favours atmospheres over genres make them ideal to play the opening slot on the PLUS floor.
