Alongside Rick Davis as Cybotron, Juan Atkins first made his name with the 1982 Electro track Clear but it was with fellow Detroit residents Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May that Atkins evolved the Techno sound. In over 30 years his influence has extended beyond production credits, collaborative projects and prolific album releases – Atkins has an innate ability to rock a dance floor.
Nottingham’s Matt Cutler aka Lone started making tracks as Lone after disbanding Kids In Tracksuits in 2007. Galaxy Garden was his most dance-oriented album to date mixing together ambient electro with harder edged 4/4, Dubstep and skittering Acid breakdowns. The track Airglow Fires was nominated in Bleep’s Top 100 tracks of 2013 and is a strong runner for Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards.
Rival Consoles last played at Village Underground as part of Erased Tapes synth infused club night last year. The pseudonym of Ryan Lee West, his work is intelligent often glitchy but with a warm analogue-synth undercurrent with occasional contemporary composer leanings of his ET label mates.
This line-up is completed with Livin’ Proof member and Bleep DJ Raj Chaudhari.
