Overmono [Tessela & Truss] [DJ set]
An indisputably massive bill curated by our favourite magazine. You’d be hard pressed to find a single name here that’s not a little bit special. Ben UFO sits atop, and looking beneath his name tells you everything you need to know about how high he’s flying right now. With a one of the most relentless touring schedules in the world he still somehow finds the time to keep his record collection fresh, and stacked up with the wiggy curveballs that have become his calling card.
Headlining over in room 1 is none other than Moodymann, who over thirty-odd years in the game has carved a space for himself as one of the strangest, smoothest and sleaziest DJs around. His unique brand of sultry house and his penchant for out-of-nowhere selections make no two sets of his alike. A stone cold genius.
Helena Hauff sits just below Ben UFO back over in room two but can make a serious claim to be the most exciting DJ on the planet right now. Moody electro, obscure rarities and white knuckle techno comprise her most sought-after set, and with her unique style and zero-fucks-given attitude, she’s brought a little goth to parties the world over. Moodymann is propped up by Hunee, and the Rush-Hour don never fails to spread wide-grins and send palms reaching for the lights with his bag full of intricate sonic explorations and dusty disco gems.
With Tama Sumo, Palms Trax, Overmono, Gramrcy, Daisy Moon and Mr Price holding it down at the base of the bill – a line-up that would stand up in its own right against most clubs’ best of the year – we don’t need to tell you this is not one to miss.
