Returning artist Mysterious Headless Horseman is an active techno industrial project since 2013, which, like the Ancient Methods, is moving to a pitch black techno war funk. Headless Horseman spins with a covered face and is the alias of one of Berlin’s best techno crusher imports from the U.S. Unseeing is believing. His label, of the same name, features only self-made releases; while his ethos behind the music runs far deeper than merely mixing records for the fun of it. Headless Horseman will be performing a live set on the Tresor Floor tonight. In the more than 17 years he has been producing electronic music, Luis Flores has not only made a name for himself but has been at the forefront of a movement that made the city of Guadalajara, Mexico, a hot spot for electronic music production and events. At the center of this movement was Nopal Beat Records, a label he ran from 1998 to 2006. A techno workaholic, his works can be found on a slew of international labels, charted by some of the genre’s top-notch artists. Luis Flores continues to work non-stop, for example his first collaboration with Berlin based producer Material Object in 2013. His personality and experience are present in every track he produces, resulting in a dark, groove driven sound. Altstadt Echo has accomplished what most up-and-coming artists only talk about: a handful of vinyl releases, multiple festival performances, and the curation of an event series that has become a fixture of local underground culture. Altstadt Echo has been remixed by electronic music leaders across the world and has also established his own Modern Cathedrals label. Now based in Berlin, his sound is a melancholic mixture of Detroit’s rough concrete landscape and dark Scandinavian romanticism, combining lamenting and ethereal atmospheres with eroded, broken-beat percussion. With two releases on his label and more on Interdimensional Transmissions’ experimental sublabel Eye Teeth, we welcome Alstadt Echo back in our home tonight. Tapefeed, who last stood behind our decks in December 2017, is an Italian duo Alessandro Boni and Rick Vayo. The soundscapes they reproduce evoke a truly raw, deep and almost mesmerising sensation created by the blending of hypnotic ambient tones with techno-tribal percussions, heavy basslines and emotional melodies. Their ever-evolving sound comes as the pinnacle of years of musical research shared by the duo. In Globus: Danny Wolfers aka Legowelt is truly one of a kind, a producer and performer who spans many different scenes with ease and always in his own unique style. Most frequently producing as Legowelt, his unique style comes from an unfaltering devotion to hardware, be it old, new or totally knackered. Jamming all day long on music making toys, his output veers from dense and foresty techno to whizzing electro, deeper electronic and stuff for which there isn’t even a name yet. Returning since his last appearance in our club last year is Berlin-based artist Alex Tsiridis aka RHYW (one half of Cassegrain & running Arcing Seas) is one of Techno’s more prolific producers. Tsiridis has used the Rhyw alias to explore more abstract interpretations of both the Techno genre, and the wider dance music spectrum. He has released solo EPs on Tar Hallow, Arcing Seas and his new label Fever AM as well as a contribution to legendary Tbilisi club, Bassiani. We welcome back artist Doc Sleep cut her chops as a DJ in San Francisco’s vibrant scene the past decade, before making a move to Berlin in 2016. Since 2013, she’s been the co-owner of Jacktone Records, which specializes in techno, ambient, leftfield and experimental electronics. Doc Sleep broadcasts on cult favorite, Intergalactic FM, for several years and in 2016 and 2017 released her first two 12’s on the Hot Mass-affiliated Detour Records and Bottom Forty, with many more tracks and remixes on various distinguished labels, and continues to tour internationally.
