A self-confessed Noisician, Paula Temple obliterated 2014 with ‘Deathvox’, her second monumental release for the legendary label R&S. Her debut ‘Colonized’ EP made one of biggest statements in 2013 for uncompromising techno, followed by remixes for avant-electronic acts The Knife, Perera Elsewhere and Planningtorock. Such refreshing high-voltage output has rapidly placed Paula Temple at the forefront of new techno. Previously she released ‘Speck of The Future’ appearing on Jeff Mill’s ‘Exhibitionist’ album and techno vanguard Chris McCormack’s Materials label, and for her record label Noise Manifesto she has just launched a very special and unique collaboration series called Decon/Recon with select showcase events only. Tonight we’re really excited about her hybrid live/DJ set in the run-up to her upcoming 3rd EP released on R&S Records. Tom Russell is Truss, a Welsh techno artist who puts a highly unique and raw, raunchy touch to his harde-edged primal-to-industrial sounds, that reach vast edges of a techno spectrum. With influences from Berlin early techno pioneers to the 90s UK New School à la Ruskin, Truss also grabbed a lot of deserved attention for his jams with Perc. Shao began making electronic music in 2002. Influenced by classical oriental philosophy and Industrial German and Bauhaus ideals, his music explores the relationship between sound and space. Tensions are interweaved with restrained emotions, and a sense of space running through the movement, can be felt calm, solid, yet highly impressive. In 2010, Shao was appointed as the sole sound designer for the 2010 World Expo’s “Pavilion of the Future.” Through 2011 Shao released four albums, the last being ‘Tíng,Tái,Lóu,Gé’ on his own label Waveform, and his most recent “Doppler Shift Pt.1” EP was released proudly this month on our house label. Excellent basement support tonight is from our own techno resident HGR. On the Globus Floor: Amsterdam-based label Indigo Aera is run by Maarten Mittendorff and Jasper Wolff. Besides releasing new music, the dutch label is also know for it’s commitment to release (reissued) tracks from the vault. The label relies on soul-searching techno that champions all the original principles of the genre and therefore stands the test of time. Those principles focus on melody and adventure as much as intensity and dance-ability, one eye on the future but always guided by emotion, with Tresor-connected artists like Jonas Kopp, Pacou, Vince Watson und Kirk Degiorgio among their roster. Both Mittendorff and Wolff will share the decks tonight, promising a good dancefloor look into their unique sound. They bring to the night two paradise examples of European machine souls. Steve Rachmad has been integral to the development of the scene in his native Netherlands and a longtime friend of the Tresor family. Most often associated with Detroit techno, its warm pads, rousing strings and powerful grooves, Steve is the producer, remixer and DJ who among first championed such sounds in his home country. Amongst his earliest achievements was releasing the full length Secret Life of Machines back in 1995, a definitive techno album that was very much an instant classic, re-released and remixed in 2012 by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Joris Voorn. His Tresor Records untitled EP in 1999, with its futuristic and bold techno forms, further cemented the extreme talent of this unique artist. Scotland-born Stephen Brown’s inspiration lies firmly in Detroit techno, his releases and live performances are proof of this. He chooses to give his music to labels that he respects, rather than make a certain style of music for a particular type of label. Starting off and moving through distinguished labels Djax, Soma, T&B, Drought, Scandinavia (to name a few), and with new projects coming on Transmat, we welcome him back after his memorable live Globus set last January.
