On the cusp of the new year, Tresor welcomes UK artist Alan Fitzpatrick, a DJ, producer and label manager who holds high status as a universally respected and in-demand producer, and who remains a core Drumcode artist internationally respected as he tours the world. He is the founder of Brain Damage Recordings and his style stands out from the norm which enables him to collaborate with some of the genre’s most famous DJs. On the back of a standout 2014, Fitzpatrick’s underground momentum has seen him garner a wider fanbase resulting in the Englishman’s stock rising rapidly thanks to a profile-boosting Ibiza season and multiple end-of year accolades, most notably a debut entry at 85 in Resident Advisor’s Top 100 poll. Tracks such as ‘Truant’, ‘Skeksis, ‘For An Endless Night’, ‘Always Something For Nothing’ and ‘Reflections’ all topped the charts over the last six years, drawing high praise from peers and tastemakers across genre divides for the vibrancy, originality and inventiveness that has come to characterise Alan Fitzpatrick’s music. Two of our best basement residents Ro and HGR provide combustible support. On the Globus decks: Tom Clark is certainly no stranger to our home. The Highgrade founder and legendary Berlin DJ’s own releases and DJ sets have been detonating on the dance floors of the city since the 90s. His DJ sets have become synonymous for intense, diverse and suspenseful club nights, and his exquisite productions are expressed on his three full-length albums. Tom Clark’s style varies from minimal deep tech/house, Detroit Techno, Electro and House. Despite being relatively new to the scene, French-born Samuel Thalmann aka Okain has been collecting,spinning and producing music for almost 15 years. An accomplished international DJ and producer, Okain has released strong singles, EPs and remixes under is main artist name or using various aliases such as before-mentioned Samuel Thalmann, as well as Lezar and Handycraft, the collaboration with his childhood mate Paul Ritch. Frequent guest P.Toile’s** sound developed from French house to minimal techno, while funk and soul of the seventies yet her main music roots can be still heard in her DJ sets. P.Toile‘s** productions are especially speaking to a more mature and music conscious audience, with productions ranging from down-tempo, to up-lifting house – minimal – techno, via airy emotional house, always spiced up with some funk. A we greet again young DJ Pascal Hetzel who made his first mark with his remix for KiNK and Sierra Sam’s “My Space” on Upon.You, which was initially released as a digital-only track, but it did so well that Upon.You head honcho Marco Resmann decided to press it as a one-sided white label, which now has been repressed twice. With continual international gigs coming his way, Pascal Hetzel is a talent to watch.
** We regret to inform you that P.Toile is unable to play tonight. Stepping in is our friend and Berlin artist David Delgado who will provide one of his crisp tech-house sets for our Globus guests.
