13 % - Celebrating the launch of a new collective, whose aim is to bring forth cutting edge artists (up-and-coming & already established) in the techno and tech-house music industry.
|Tickets:||10.00 - At the door, limited space|
|Extras:||Our duty for the first event is to shed light on artists signed to Montreal-based record label, Archipel. Operated and run by label boss Pheek, who requires very little introduction to this city for he is seen as an artist who helped put Montreal on the map for techno music. With a very unique style of his own, Pheek's craft is his architecture of layered sound. If you've never heard a live set by this man - now would be the best time because he is on the top of his game.|
Ryan Crosson is one of the hardest working producers in the industry. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Part of the new breed of Detroit, Ryan has made a name for himself over the past few years with his floor friendly livesets and releases on Archipel, Trapez, Telegraph and M_nus under his alias Berg Nixon. Drawing from the likes of Matthew Dear, Magda and Ricardo Villalobos, his percussive often shuffle style of techno makes him one to watch for the future.
Warm up duties will be performed by 13 % resident, Ostrich (aka Nadir Agha). A part of a younger generation of artists who found passion in art, especially music and films. Upon exploring his talents as a DJ, producer, and an aspiring filmmaker, Nadir's sound carries various funk-flavored elements of techno that is bounded by deep house, categorizing itself as deep tech-house. His narrative approach to DJ sets under the Ostrich moniker, allows his art to speak through music. His first release generated a lot of interest and was picked up by a Turkish record label called Bosphorus Underground.
