Looking first at The Terrace – the newest of our rooms – and one that conjures memories of sun-drenched Mediterranean dance floors, even in the thick of winter. Fittingly, it will be hosted by our old friend Loco Dice and his Desolat imprint’s Serán Bendicidos. In addition to marvel Dice, we will be blessed by Geordie non-conformist wAFF and US techno veteran Dubfire. The ever-animated William Djoko and Afro-Italo beatmaker Yaya add further blessings. Finally, up-and-coming Mancunian outfit Mason Collective round things off.
Next, we turn our attention to The Great Gallery. Our host Michael Bibi of Solid Grooves fame presents Isolate. Bibi’s ambitious solo project launched last month at Magazine, but now he brings it to a bigger stage. As well as playing an extended three-hour set, Bibi will be joined in the DJ booth by a secret guest. Earlier on Ben Rau and Lauren Lo Sung will link-up for a special B2B, while another young UK minimalist Rossi opens the day’s account.
Taking things subterranea, in the darkened depths of The Car Park – we’re going full-blown techno with Pan-Pot Invites. The legendary Berlin duo has quite the invitation list, calling upon industry friends from around the globe. Brazilian techno princess ANNA is the first name joining them. Meanwhile, Irish hardware-enthusiast Matador returns to the scene of many previous conquests. Lastly, fellow German spinner David Kochs completes the bill.
In charge of the VIP, we extend our hand to London promoters Eclipsar, who be providing vocal goodness and stripped-back grooves courtesy of party regulars Craig & Grant Gordon, Taylor, Unorthodox and newly installed fabric resident Lindsay Matthews. Italian warrioress Silvie Loto is the guest headliner.
