ADAM BEYER PRESENTS DRUMCODE
Dense & Pika
Maya Jane Coles
16:00 – 04:00 | DEPOT (MAYFIELD)
Where do you start with Drumcode and Adam Beyer? Founded in 1996, label and chief have been at the forefront of techno ever since. Carving out a percussive and infinitely mixable style, that so-called Swedish sound was promoted to the big leagues from niche origins some time ago. A high energy, full-throttle-yet-accessible take on tough, it’s now considered one of the dominant forces in global rave.
With such a celebrated history it’s no surprise so many heavyweights have emerged from this camp— a number of which are on tonight. From more recent additions to the stable, such as Boxia, to long-standing favourites like Joel Mull, Bart Skils and Ida Engberg, the names on this line-up are shorthand for unrelenting fours that grow, groove and kick their way towards ever-more ferocious levels of intensity. Many are household names in their own right, from the deeper moodiness of Pan-Pot to the upfront boom of Alan Fitzpatrick, Maceo Plex’s synth-y electronics to the electro and jacking house-infused directions B.Traits’ has been known to explore. Expect nothing but the most solid body movers, all night long.
