Our final show of the Printworks Autumn / Winter series sees a stellar line up of Techno mavericks descend on the mighty Press Halls. Committed to delivering shows that drive things forward, we have pieced together a line up of the most talented selectors in the scene. A founding member of the legendary group Underground Resistance and a pillar of the Detroit Techno movement, Robert Hood will be bringing the stripped-down dance floor minimalism that pathed the way for many in the late nineties Techno scene. Joining The Minister will be two heavyweights of the circuit in the shape of Detroit’s DJ Stingray and Berlin’s Hardwax stalwart, Marcel Dettmann. Two of the most influential proponents of contemporary Techno, these heavyweights of the game will be trading weapons in never-before-seen back to back performance. We’ll also welcome the cutting blade of Dave Clarke’s unique take on techno and electro, Vitalic’s stunning live show, the superlative DJ Bone and Alienata who’ll be offering up her unique sound which spans across obscure electro, acid, dub, IBM and more. The Darkroom plays host to one of the advocates and driving forces behind the renaissance of the New York house sound, Levon Vincent. The enigmatic Shed lands in London presenting his EDQ live show alongside the genre bending selector and DJ Kicks alumni, Laurel Halo. Completing the bill is Ilian Tape’s secret weapon, the enigmatic wunderkid, Skee Mask and Afrodeutsche whose charged up club music is as thrilling as it is undefinable.
