Concrète return to The Ferret for July with a showcase of some of the area’s finest techno DJs, spinning tunes late into the night.
Barium Network / Wilx / Sid Voltage / Nick Almond / Impulse Array
Beats of Rage resident Mike Warburton – AKA Bail – will be debuting his dark, venomous alter ego Barium Network. Following an EP released on Highlands techno label Hypnotic Groove back in April, his new project inhabits the dark, eerie, hypnotic recesses of rhythmic club music – a mixture of apocalyptic industrial, unnerving techno and collages of densely layered ambient grit. Expect fierce, unhinged body music covering explorative bass and techno with occasional interludes of beauty.
Wilx is one half of the legendary club night Trauma – who were responsible for bringing Luke Slater and Billy Nasty to Preston and a load of mad parties the best part of a decade ago. Since then Wilx has been a regular on the decks at underground techno parties all around Preston, as well as playing live (and blowing everyone’s brains) with This Machine.
Sid Voltage is an experimental mash up DJ fusing Electro, Techno Tech Breaks, and sausage rolls. DJ’ing since 96 and better known as DJ Scott’3 a scratch artist playing Jungle, Drum&Bass and Acid Techno.
Purveyor of accelerating monkey magic.
Veteran DJ Nick Almond been DJing since 1989 – he spent time in Germany playing underground parties at the turn of the decade, and played legendary Leeds club The Orbit’s chillout room during it’s glory days of the early 90s. He started producing techno in the mid 90s, quickly being signed to integral music, as well as releasing on his own imprint, Method Records. Since then he’s DJ’d for Locked, Gash, Mad Hatters, and now runs his own underground techno night… somewhere.
FINALLY: After his absolutely storming set at Concrète last week, we’ve asked Impulse Array back to play again. Check out his new EP on Concrète Tapes for a taste: https://impulsearray.bandcamp.com/album/extrasolar-ep
