We’re extremely proud to be able to present a Background Records showcase for our first party of the year. Hailing from Düsseldorf, this label has been responsible for putting out music by some of the finest artists around for the last decade: Sutekh, Jan Jelinek, Todd Sines, Terrence Dixon, Jeff Milligan, Akufen, Submania, Dean DeCosta, Rhythm Maker, Kit Clayton, Ectomorph, Deadbeat, Baby Ford, Stewart Walker, Donnacha Costello, Geoff White, Smyglyssma, Portable, Antiguo Automata Mexicano, Oliver Hacke, Frivolous and many others…
For this party we have label head, and well respected artist in his own right, Andy Vaz, performing live and we also have a very unique live set courtesy of Geoff White. The world tour to support Geoff’s recent album on background records will feature a special live set made from scratch using/abusing elements of the record and will be retired after the tour comes to a close. The concept is to harvest, remix, and utilize a set of sounds that can be manipulated to align with the atmosphere of any venue; be it warehouse/found location, outdoors, gallery, small club, or raging discoteque. A great deal of work is going into creating a unique experience which is precisely why after a limited set of engagements the material will never again see the dark of night.
Long before Minimal Techno turned into a genre, and subgenre after subgenre were invented, Andy Vaz has already been concentrating on providing a cultural conduit for more minimal electronic music, between Düsseldorf, San Francisco, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto, London, Chicago, South Africa, Monterrey, Perth and countless other cities around the world.
Some of the most influential international musicians of the minimal electronic music movement had their works presented on his Background Imprint.
As one of America’s premier electronic music producers, Geoff White has amassed a catalogue of distinguished releases on labels such as Force Inc./Mille Plateaux, Traum, Proptronix, Morris Audio, Cytrax and his own Edit Audio. Most recently he’s made the move to Ghostly International where he released his debut album under his Aeroc moniker (which was constructed entirely from his own guitar sounds) and Ghostly’s sister label, Spectral Sound, where he creates jacking dance tracks with live instruments.
In addition to these internationally acclaimed artists we are also very very happy to finally have a certain Ekkohaus along for the ride! Joining him for this set will be another friend and talented producer – Alban. Between them these two have notched up releases on local imprint (and rising international label ;-)) Multi Vitamins, Safari and Cologne’s Kickboxer.
We will be using a new venue for this party. It’s a great art studio / warehouse space round the corner from Highbury corner. This space is much more in keeping with our usual style and ethos and should provide a great canvas for us to let loose on!
Address: 82 Queensland Road, London N7 7AS
Doors will open at 11pm and they will STAY open all night without any of our recent restrictions.
