In the past few years, there's been a lot of talk about
minimalism in electronic music. While electronic dance music is
all pretty minimal in a sense, you may have noticed that a lot of
what has been called "minimal" doesn't sound very minimal at all.
Enter Thomas Melchior, who makes some of the most beautiful and
truly minimal dance music we've ever heard. Melchior has been
making various forms of electronic music for over 20 years.
Early in his career he released two successful and extremely
influential releases on Aphex Twin's Rephlex label. In the late
90's his focus started to shift to more minimal house music, and
he became a member of Baby Ford & The Ifach Collective, and
is responsible for many of the fine releases on Ford's Trelik
imprint. As Melchior Productions in this decade, he's released
key parts of his discography over three of the most important
and influential labels in electronic dance music: Playhouse,
Perlon, and Cadenza. We are thrilled to finally present one of
our all time favorite producers as a pre-Thanksgiving treat,
where he will be performing a special two hour live set. This is
the only wee all year that we do Bunker on WEDNESDAY, NOT FRIDAY!
