Nina Kraviz returns to WHP to curate a deft and deep showcase of the finest underground techno, old and new. Long recognised as the DJ's DJ, Jeff Mills has spent decades representing the pure techno sound of his native Detroit, and has also been known to turn his hand to classical composition and sprawling electronica. Tonight at WHP Presents he’s giving a rare live performance, drawing together all elements of his sound, from his cerebral, cosmic obsessed dronescapes to banging peak time techno. A legend in action.
He’s joined by another veteran in the form of Clark, who is presenting selections from this year’s raved-up album Death Peak – a record that has already made it onto numerous ‘album of the year’ lists. Nina herself is no slouch in the skills department, her ???? nights and accompanying label quickly becoming a by-word for quality music – she’ll be headlining with a typically deep, looping set of underground machine funk.
As performers go The Chemical Brothers are easily recognisable as alumni of the 90s stadium dance era – they know how to play to a big room like few others, throwing out curveballs and classics with glee and passion. They are ably supported by Daniel Avery, whose own style has developed in recent years into a psychedelic form indebted to the Chemical Brothers sprawling imaginative take on techno.
Meanwhile A Love From Outer Space – aka Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston – bring their slow motion techno and weird disco to take the dancefloor down strange, magical paths.
