Midland joins our XX celebrations. The UK artist has close ties with us – having first joined us with Hessle Audio back in 2011, over the years he’s become one of our most prized regular guests. His FABRICLIVE 94 album was a standout in our mix series, and he’s also one of a few artists to have laid it down in all three rooms of our space. These days he plays a rich blend of abstract house via deep shades of techno and modern disco, styles he also champions through his labels Graded and Regraded. He’s joined by Craig Richards, an artist whose history with us goes without saying. For the last 20 years, Richards has showcased his vast record collection in our space, constantly shaping our musical direction. He’s played alongside Midland a number of times in Room One, and the pair’s mutual love of the craft of DJing has given us some of some of our most memorable Saturday nights in recent memory. Local talent and one of our favourite faces on the rise Oli Silva rounds off a UK-heavy Room One bill.
In Room Two, KiNK plays live. A certified hardware wizard, the Bulgarian producer’s electric live performances are truly something to behold. We’ve witnessed him bringing the heat to Farringdon a number of times, so we’re excited to welcome him back to help us celebrate our milestone. He’s joined by Terry Francis. Like Richards, the tech house visionary needs no introduction from us – his 700 appearances since 1999 should show how important he’s been in our story. We also welcome Slam, the Glasgow duo behind one of the most influential labels in the history of techno, Soma Quality. The pair are a natural fit for our celebrations – having touched down in our space on a regular rotation since 2001, they are fully embedded in our history. They bring their high calibre strain of techno back to Room Two for what should be a memorable night in celebration of our 20th birthday.
