Ever-busy promoters Broken & Uneven have confirmed details of their next seven parties around Europe, five of which are collaborations with house aficianados Electric Minds.
The series kicks off on Saturday March 2, when Electric Minds will play host to a warm-up party for Dimensions festival. Stuttgart native Motor City Drum Ensemble will be showcasing his fantastic Detroit pastiches, offering up throwback techno that’s full of character and personality. Berlin talent Efdemin will be in support, navigating deep house and minimal with the sort of dexterity you’d expect from a Dial regular. Electric Minds man Dolan Bergin rounds out the bill. The venue is yet to be announced.
On March 8, they take over Berlin’s Panoramabar, with Ostgut Ton lynchpin Nick Höppner joined by Move D, Endian, Jay Shepheard and Dolan Bergin, and on May 5, they have the launch party of Steffi‘s forthcoming Panorama Bar mix CD at another yet to be announced London venue – Bergin and Detroit’s mighty Andres accompany the Dutch resident DJ on the bill.
From there it’s on to Barcelona for an off-Sonar party co-hosted with Mono_Cult and featuring Move D, Bicep, Prosumer, Soundstream and more, on June 12. They then present their own showcase at the Dimensions Festival in Croatia with Dixon (pictured above), Move D and Prosumer. Last but not least, though quite some distance in the future, is Electric Minds’ 8th birthday party back in London with Move D, Kassem Mosse, Prosumer, Fred P and more.
But wait, back up, back up…. March 28, Broken & Uneven are at it again in London, mounting a large-scale celebration of two very different German labels, Ostgut Ton and 50Weapons. Sandwell District’s Function will rep the former with both a DJ and a live set, and Marcus Fengler will be on a diverse techno tip. Genre-spanning duo Barker & Baumecker are also on board, and the extra-special big draw is Underground Resistance legend Robert Hood. 50Weapons, meanwhile, will bring along the redoubtable Shed, who will be running through his meticulous back catalogue with a live set. Addison Groove will also be on board, as will Benjamin Damage, also playing live. The set will take place in a London warehouse – again, the exact location is still TBA.
