In Globus: Restoration founders Marieu and Lucretio, both solo and as the The Analogue Cops, or as their moniker Xenogears, are back for a terrific live set on the Globus Floor tonight. The united forces of RESTORATION resist in Berlin, their label is a manifesto of their purposes: to provide to the dancefloors solid analogue fat sounds not following the trends but always digging deep into their roots with the eyes on the future. The Analogue Cops are 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. Italian artist Key Clef was born and grew up in Rome. Her rave background resulted in a big passion for drums and synthesizers. she is known for her live sets in the underground Italian scene. In the few last years Key Clef played for the LSWHR organization and has since moved to Berlin. Studio and radio producer, but first and foremost a DJ, Elisa Bee has experienced club culture from pretty much every angle. First Elisa’s production takes life in February 2012: her Crazy Sisters Bootleg of ‘Dry Tool’ by His Majesty Andre has been supported by Annie Mac on her show on BBC Radio1 and it received positive feedbacks from countless DJs all around the world. Numerous releases ensued and in 2017 her Mind ‘Game EP’ came out on Unknown To The Unknown, DJ Haus’ label (UK). Record collector of almost every genre, from jazz to reggae trough hip-hop, rock and obviously house and techno, it’s very difficult then to find a label perfectly matching Elisa’s description as she moves freely in the flux of unpredictable creativity and constant wide spreading interests. Polish DJ and producer Marek Stuczyński aka Eltron John is a staple figure in the Polish underground music scene for over a decade, well-loved for his passionate, no-nonsense approach to the craft. His signature sets – at times as long as 6-8 hours – often cut across genres and eras, displaying the breadth of his musical roots, which lay in blues, soul, disco, dub and psychedelia as much as in house and techno. Currently a resident at Smolna (Warsaw) and Szpitalna 1 (Kraków), Eltron John has played hundreds of gigs at clubs and festivals around the country and beyond.
Downstairs in Tresor: Idealism is the driving force behind all of Milton Bradley’s thoughts and moves – a fact especially prevalent in his musical output. With years of experience in Berlin’s electronic music scene, Bradley has built up a reputation as a decisive and forward-thinking artist with a versatile yet thriving sound. “Do Not Resist the Beat!” was the label he founded in 2008 and aside from much production work and touring worldwide, Bradley started a collaboration with Grounded Theory associate and good friend Henning Baer. To date they have released four highly acclaimed EPs presenting raw and effective quality techno. Milton Bradley has become one of the most promising producers within the genre, whose dystopian, industrial influenced and tripping sounds are also representative of his internationally acclaimed DJ sets. We welcome back Berlin-based Madalba of Femme Fraktale, and more recently with the Detroit-based crew Detroit Techno Militia. She moved to Berlin in 2011 and started DJing with only vinyl records. In September 2011, Madalba moved to Detroit where she started the collaboration with DJ Seoul and Tom Linder of Detroit Techno Militia. This travel has definitely and radically changed her approach to the techno concept, which she considers more a political and social phenomenon and a lifestyle than just a musical genre. Aside from all this, she launched her own record label “Future Déjà Vu”. And to give the night a pinch of finesse, our resident HGR, known for his versatile sets and agility to move between moods, will provide an excellent techno set.
