Echoes.08
Fri 21 October 2016 - 23:59

Rolling into the eighth edition of the Echoes series, tonight on two floors with some outstanding talent. We welcome back the Amerikan-Dutch producer and graphic designer Sheela Rahman aka Xosar who with her mystical and exotic broken house-psychedelia that she dazzled us with a few years back. Having played in practically all of the most well-known venues on the globe, we are very enthusiastic about her terrific live set tonight. If her 2015 EP on her own Gyrocyre label is any indication, then fasten your seat belts. American electronic music producer Shawn O’Sullivan is based in New York and is associated with diverse labels including L.I.E.S. and Avian. His background stems from the darker and heavier fringes of techno music and roughed edges of minimal wave. Shawn always manages to elegantly capture the essence of groovy futurist darkness and melancholic melodic twists. Also from New York, Dylan Scheer is Via App who also provides some underground live vibronics tonight. In reference to her 2015 5-track “7 Headed”, label 1080p describes it as “disparately-sourced vocal samples, twinkling synths, and creeping basslines dialogue and tangle on the the table of Via App‘s demonic feast. Club kicks and twisted-up models of more recognizable dance formats hold together disjointed parts on the brink of collapse and knock them into hard grooves.” Yes! Blush Response is Joey Blush, Cuban-American artist and sound designer. His music is characterized by a modular synth heavy approach to sound design, combining rough, glitch-heavy beats with thick, distorted synths to create a sound that blurs the lines between electronic genres. This excellent Tresor line-up is complemented with a set by Tresor resident Mischa. In Globus Gerard Hanson alias Convextion returns, an artist who has cultivated the epigones of the rich interface of Detroit techno and Berlin dubelektronik, a highly unique sound design, primarily distinguished by its incomprehensible beautiful subtlety. As a fiery child of the music industry his release cycle is very carefully distributed and on few labels – which incurs an all too positive effect on the quality of the tracks. So reasonable his discography, so passionate his admirers. Tonight Convextion gives us the opportunity to once again experience his live performance. Our friend Mike Huckaby also returns, a pioneer who has done much for Detroit electronic music. The man behind the once legendary Record Time store has gathered an encyclopedic knowledge of music. He is a person who can see beyond the hype and divisions within the scene. With numerous highly acclaimed deep house productions and remixes on internationally renowned labels, Mike Huckaby brings the Detroit sound of deep house and techno with him. Possessing all the roots and culture of electronic  dance music, he knows the balance between deep house and techno like no other. Refracted has released some of his dub-techno on lables such as Connwax and Silent Season. Deep rhythms and atmospheric elements have always played a major role in Refracted‘s music. Be it through hypnotic grooves or mesmerising soundscapes, the journey is always assured. And with a substantial set by resident Stojche, tonight provides Tresor magic.
