Defunct Enters the Void with Space Dimension Controller
Still buzzed off the back of our last event, Defunct’s Return to the Arches, we’re extremely excited to announce our biggest booking to date - none other than Belfast based legend Space Dimension Controller!
Space Dimension Controller is Mr. 8040 from a planet called Mikrosector-50. OK, he might not be, but his musical storytelling is so evocative you'll be happy to believe him anyway. His highly conceptual style is as cinematic and widescreen as the film music he once dreamed of making. It has given rise to critically acclaimed albums on R&S and Ninja Tune and always soundtracks self-penned and emotional stories of space flight, cosmic exploration and intergalactic adventures. His music is an absorbing mix of electro-funk, 80s pop, acid house, sci-fi ambient and astral disco that is both cerebral yet propulsive.
Space Dimension Controller's sound was fully formed as far back as 2008 when he was experimenting in his bedroom. Since then his ability to coax narrative from his tape machines, synths and hardware has continually evolved and given rise to EPs for Royal Oak, amongst others, and remixes of Model 500 and Anthony Shake Shakir. As a DJ, Space Dimension Controller likes to reset the mood and set off in his own direction. Small dark spaces are the best canvas for this, and from there he journeys though all his influences in smooth fashion, with tempos rising as he shifts through 80s, disco, acid tech, IDM and house.
As lovers of many styles of electronic music, shifting through the genres is what we are all about at Defunct. For this reason, we know Space Dimension Controller will be the perfect fit to get you guys bopping along all night as he takes us well and truly into the void via Werkhaus’s perfectly tuned Funktion-One soundsystem!
Werkhaus, located in the Truman Brewery complex on Brick Lane, is a 350-capacity venue outfitted with a Funktion-One soundsystem boasting a 6am license.
“London’s music scene has gone back to its roots, and we wanted to create space for the innovative, boundary-pushing artists who represent the fabric of what’s emerging. It’s a high-spec, industrial space championing live, club and art-focused events from today’s thriving subculture communities.”
As always the Defunct residents will be warming up the floor from 11pm, and taking over the controls after SDC takes us on a wild journey.
Get ready to dive deep for this one.
