12 Years of THEM - Celebrating a dozen years of heavy sub base and elevated heart rates.
Following on from Function's album launch in December, co-starring Randomer and Steve Bicknell, THEM and Samsara Sessions are back with our last event of 2020, headed up by some of the very best in energetic and hard-hitting Techno, UK Club music, Hardcore and Rave from various places throughout the world.
We're excited to have Dubstep pioneer Pinch back to headline another THEM event, (his last appearance for us was in 2013, and he's remained at the forefront of emerging UK sounds ever since - we can't wait to be introduced to the newest formations in the ever tightening web of Techno, Grime, Electronics etc etc). Joining him is Ansome, with a new live set of blistering Industrial Techno, hot on the heels of his barnstorming new album ' Hounds of the Harbour'. We've got Headless Horseman live in the building, showcasing his razor sharp, stark and dark atmospheric analogue Techno. Ireland's Sunil Sharpe - touring the world with incredibly tight and well-selected vinyl DJ sets - joins in to explore a wide range of Techno subgenres and complimentary Electronic sounds (such as Electro and Ghetto House / Rave) on wax. Sweden's unique Peder Mannerfelt also joins us for a live set of out of the ordinary and unpredictable slices electronic music (Leftfield, Dub Techno, indefinable grooves?). Manni Dee returns to us from a high profile run (via Boiler Room for instance) for a no-holds-barred DJ set of fast, slick and relentless kickdrums at a higher BPM rate. JoeFarr is in the building to update us on his distinct brand of polyrhythmic / broken / UK Techno bangers with intricately layered sound design. Ireen Anmes makes her THEM debut - we're looking forward to her well regarded sets of varied hypnotic bleeps and grooves! and THEM resident and party planner Altar goes back to bak with Fold resident James Newmarch for a set of the faster, harder and sweatier end of things.
Jam packed as ever then, so cancel your plans for the morning after and grab an advance ticket to avoid disappointment :)
