Any true head knows that the best day of the year for partying is not New Year’s Eve, but New Year’s Day. Enter We Concur and their January 1st special with tastemaking techno talents Nina Kraviz and Alan Fitzpatrick headlining alongside stripped back techno specialist Recondite, live, at Oval Space, London.
We Concur has established itself in the capital as a purveyor of carefully considered underground sounds. Welcoming party atmospheres and using spaces that do things right have all backed up quality bookings such as Mano Le Tough, Clockwork, Matthias Meyer, Matthew Dekay and more alike.
And so to the next party, which we are promised will feature some extra special production: global superstar Nina Kraviz is very much an influential, scene leading artist, and not just another electronic producer or DJ. She sings, she produces, she DJs, and it’s for that reason that she is one of the most influential voices in the electronic music world. Since breaking through with standout releases on Underground Quality, she has become an essential member of the Rekids family, releasing a string of EPs and a very personal debut album on the long running label. A student of classic house and techno and labels like Dance Mania as well as being a keen proponent of acid, electro and more, she is a fierce DJ who makes for a most tasteful headliner.
A DJ of whom Southampton can be proud for a consistent string of solid releases is Alan Fitzpatrick. His recent tracks are almost certainly considered classics now – ‘Skeksis’ and ‘We are Forever Young’ and he’s the man behind plenty more purely dancefloor, pumped tech EPs and LPs on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode, Bedrock and his own 8 Sided Dice. As a DJ he lays down urgent and essential sets of high-energy sounds all over the world: Anyone who has caught one of his sets at Awakenings will know how legendary a performer he is and New Years Day 2015 will be no different.
Life And Death affiliate Recondite has made a name for himself as a true craftsman of moody, emotive and dark techno sounds. A firm member of the Dystopian camp – a label started by friends but that along with Rødhâd is now carving out the new direction of techno – he gets a sort of melancholy and beauty out of his machines that few can manage. And he’s done so on fine labels like Hot Flush, Acid Test and Innervisions – with whom he is set to release his latest much anticipated album ‘Iffy’ on 11th November 2014. He will play a special live set that will find him manipulating machines into heady, captivating techno soundscapes.
Rachel Lyn closes out the line-up and is getting more and more recognition for her work, with the likes of Richie Hawtin spinning her track ‘Flower Parts’. She’s produced with Pig & Dan and Kris Wadsworth just remixed one of her tracks and is a close associate of labels like Terminal M and House Republic so this gal’ is truly on the rise.
