Seth Troxler stops by Farringdon for our 20th birthday. There aren’t many artists who fit our celebrations better – long before he became a globally-renowned star, the Detroit native was a key part of our story. Over the last decade he’s become close family to us, bringing a wealth of house and techno bombs matched with his inimitable charisma. As comfortable diving into the Motor City’s techno history as he is contemporary deep house, Troxler’s far-spanning sound aligns with everything we’ve supported over the last two decades. He’s joined by DJ Tennis, the Italian producer known best for his modern deep house cuts for labels like Running Back and Life And Death. The Room One bill is completed with someone who’s beginning to carve her own pathway with us through her own take on classic UK garage, forgotten 90s house, and much more, our own Anna Wall.
Room Two goes in at the harder end, with Marcel Dettmann at the helm. The Ostgut Ton titan is one of techno’s most dominant forces. These days he’s known across the world for presenting his own strand of raw techno, electro and EBM, a toughened sound he’s honed over more than a decade as one of the key residents at Berghain. Flanking him is François X, the French artist behind the experimental-inclined imprint, Dement3d. Finally rounding things off is an artist whose singular grasp on stiff, driving techno has made him a cherished favourite in our space, Jay Clarke.
