Returning artist Rob Kirkaldy aka Roberto is a London-based techno producer, DJ and remixer. Considered to be one of the most exciting new UK Techno artists in recent years, the artist treated us to a great set at the Fachwerk night last August, combining influences from Detroit and underground Dutch Techno, to create his own sound unique to the UK. Roberto’s sets explore many angles of techno, which has seen him play at some of the most well-respected clubs around the world. In 2015, Roberto launched his own Fossil Archive label. Predominantly a vinyl label (though releases are also available digitally), the ethos of the imprint is that it must not compromise on the sound. By pressing just one track to each side of vinyl, at 45rpm, Roberto preserves the clarity and sound quality. Tonight Roberto delivers a Fossil Archive live set. Sterac aka Steve Rachmad is a long-time friend of the Tresor family, recorded for the Tresor label and is known internationally for his creative output. Where other aliases were used for excursions to more dub-, disco-, or house- oriented records, Sterac’s focus has always been on the no-nonsense, darker, and deeper side of techno. He has traveled the world where he has played in the most famous clubs. After more than a quarter of a century involved in electronic music, it’s not an exaggeration to say that he has been integral to the development of the scene in his native Netherlands and around the world. It is always a great pleasure to welcome him back to our decks! Tresor resident Mareena’s influences range far and wide, including anything from Detroit and Chicago acid to the more hypnotic take on dub, ambient, and techno. Throughout the years Mareena has performed extensively both locally and internationally, accomplishing the rare feat of earning a reputation solely as a DJ and curator, namely for our weekly New Faces platform. After a decade of incessant and persistent work-in clubs all over Spain, Victor M aka Pushmann has become one of Spain’s top DJs and producers whose influences have been hip-hop, funk, house, among other styles. Pushmann debuted on one of our New Faces nights, delivers techno for the mind, body and soul and produces a Detroitesque sound with a clear and strong influence of European sound, Berlin and Birmingham. As a DJ, this self-confessed lover of vinyl and three-deck performances, he enjoys a refined technique after many years of selecting only the best techno, house and ghetto-techno- sessions defined as strong, energetic and vibrant. Now, in 2018, Pushmann is working on a new label N&N Records, and will release a new vinyl for Suspected Music this year with Kirk Degiorgio and Ben Long. In Globus: we welcome the return of Lucretio and Marieu aka The Analogue Cops, founders of Restoration Records, true defenders of vinyl and the worst enemies of digital downloads; from 4 years they have been resisting in Berlin, where they had already imposed their message: techno that comes from Chicago House music, from Larry Levan´s disco, from George Clinton’s funk, from Miles Davis´s jazz; in a few words, uptempo danceable R&B music. They use only hardware analogue gear in their live shows, raw and funky in the traditional Techno style. Actually The Analogue Cops are pledged in a more dub and deep house oriented project, but always deeply influenced by their passion for American music. Alexi Delano was born in Chile, raised in Sweden and later adopted by New York, Alexi became part of the Swedish wave of electronic music producers of the mid-90s, alongside fellow Swedes such as Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch and Jesper Dahlback. With his EU HQ now in Amsterdam, Delano dwells in the perfect balance between shiny minimalism and dark vivacious techno. With more than two decades on stage, he has been able to combine different roots and facets of the contemporary music scale. With over 15 years of research, love and dedication, corroborated by his work experiences like promoter/owner of one of the most important nightclubs in Italy, the Tropical Animals, Ricardo Baez has become the fine and eclectic artist that he is today. Able to cross genre boundaries with really good taste and sensitivity. Whether it be house or techno, afro or disco it doesn’t really matter. Ricardo has released very quality eps on labels like Toy Tonics, Rebirth, Gomma, Night People NYC and the last one on Luke Solomon and Justin Harris Label’s MFF (Music for Freak) with the great collaboration of the Chicago Legend Tyree Cooper. Tresor Club resident Magda El Bayoumi is an artist of Polish and Egyptian origin living in Berlin, Germany. She tends to oscillate between different sub-genres of house and techno: whether she is opening the night, playing in prime time or closing the party, she adjusts easily providing the best possible performance and record selection to fit the night. Good classic or fresh and new sound techno and house or versatile electronic productions play an important role in Magda’s choice of music today. There is only one rule: quality.
