Lost have pulled together a genuinely astonishing night of techno at Vauxhall’s Area, part of the Fire:In Session series.
November 24 will see techno legend after techno legend taking a turn behind the decks. Two of the Belleville Three, Derrick May and Juan Atkins, will both be stopping by. The former remains one of Detroit’s most eminent names, and he’s cemented his legacy with a long and illustrious discography, including work as Rhythim Is Rhythim and Mayday. The latter, meanwhile, has the best claim of any to being the father of techno, creating the Model 500, Cybotron and Metroplex aliases.
On a very different tip, Basic Channel’s Mark Ernestus will be showcasing his dubby, aquatic brand of techno. Ernestus’ body of work with Mortiz Von Oswald has rarely been more influential, and his set will see him please the converted – and likely win over a few skeptics too. The newer generation will be represented by the remarkably precocious Kyle Hall, fast establishing himself as arguably the best of Detroit’s young breed. The list goes on: Tevo Howard, Steve Bicknell and Mark Ainsley have also all got the nod.
The night runs from 11.00am until 6.00am. Tickets and further information are available from the FIRE website.
