Next w/end…

A couple of club gigs coming up next weekend, that I think I might check out. It will have been a month since I was last out. Deadbeat from Berlin, and U.K’s James Holden. Almost opposite ends of electronic dance music there, a nice contrast.

23.07.10 : Deadbeat [Live] @ Void – Phoenix Bar
24.07.10 : James Holden @ Chinese Laundry

This will be my first Void party, should be interesting. I’m not much of a fan of the dubstep genre, but I do like deep, spatial, minimal, dub techno sounds, and some dark electronica stuff. I heard a recent live PA set from Deadbeat that was excellent, featuring exactly those deep, minimal, dub techno sounds I like, keen for this after hearing that.

You can hear that set via the Void site:

It’s a sound I’ve been buying a lot more of lately, I really like a lot of the Marko Furstenberg stuff.

Deadbeat [Live] @ Void : 23.07.10

James Holden @ Chinese Laundry : 24.07.10

I have to say I’m not much of a fan of the new James Holden DJ Kicks mix CD, it’s a departure from the glitched, minimal, melodic sound he pioneered. I find the mix tends to drone on a bit too much for me. I heard a recent recorded live DJ mix of his though which was excellent, and covered a great range of melodic electronica and techno/minimal sounds, at times similar to the CD, but with better intensity, and variety, it sold me on wanting to see him play again, I think this will be the 5th time I’ve seen him play. He certainly plays interesting, memorable, electronic music, that is both interesting and dance-able, you won’t hear any of that bland, generic, tech-house.
