Simian Mobile Disco should need no introduction, from chart topping monster dance anthems to quality underground techno and house, Jas and James manage to be commercially successful whilst keeping one foot in the underground. This is an exclusive London date showcasing their second volume of instrumental dance tracks, Delicatessen. This will be their full on live show with modular analog synth mayhem and a full laser show.
Rebuild (A Guy Called Gerald and Graham Massey) They said it couldn't be done, get two of the founding father's of the UK dance scene back together on stage again almost 20 years after they split. We proved 'em wrong once before, and after a five year hiatus we thought why not do it all over again. So for one night only (probably for another 5 years or so anyway!) Graham and Gerald will take to the stage once more, with only a collection of classic Roland hardware machines and without the aid of a safety net! Don't miss out on the chance to see two living leg ends wrestle their 101s, 303s, 808s and 909s into live acid glory, as only they can....
Detroit In Effect (D.I.E) Masters of Detroit techno bass, aka 'proper' Detroit Electro aka Jit aka Juke etc... etc.... DJ Maaco's gonna rock the party like only a Detroit DJ can, with cutting, scratching and on the mic chat to get the party pumping. Detroit In Effect are responsible for some of the most off the hook electro on the planet. Tracks such as 'Men you'll never see', 'Frequency' (their cover version of Visage's Frequency 7), 'N-Ter' and 'Move Yo Body' are all staples of Elvis's electro DJ sets, and always tear the roof off a WANG party. To us, they are the true heirs to Cybotron. To have em touch down in London for the first time ever is a gonna be a real treat for us personally and for all you electro headzzz!
dBridge Genre defining producer and man of the moment, Darren White aka dBridge has many hats. Label head honcho for both Autonomic and Exit Records, uber producer of everything from tearing dnb, to hip-hop, to dubstep, to post-dubstep/whateverthehellpeoplewanttocallthisshitalliknowisthatilikeit dBridge is helping bridge the gap between the worlds of dubstep and techno/electro.
Alexander Robotnick If you think Graham and Gerald are oldschool, having released their seminal Newbuild album way back in '88, Robotnick beat 'em to it by another five whole years. His 1983 track 'Problèmes D'Amour' helped set the blueprint for modern dance music! There can't be many producers who've been making dance floor smashers for over thirty years and can still cut it today, but Robotnick is the exception that proves the rule. Any of you lucky enough to have caught him at WANG in the past will know how much he goes for it! The image of him top off, singing live whilst playing keys over the top of a track will stick with me till my dying days. Robotnick is the true master of Italo, and has an amazing knack of playing tracks that even I wouldn't have the guts to play at WANG, but somehow makes it all soooo right!
Lone Combining old school rave influences with bang up to date production techniques Matt Cutler aka Lone is one of the hottest producers around right now. His album 'Galaxy Garden' is one of our highlights of the year so far. His influences fit nicely into the WANG kinda vibe and we are super excited to have him performing.
Radioactive Man (Live) aka Keith Tenniswood is part(y) of the WANG family, and his incendiary live sets should need to introduction to all you WANGers. Guaranteed to smash it each and every time, Keith is gonna be dropping the bomb extra hard to celebrate the fact that his album 'Waits and Measures' is finally coming out on vinyl on WANG TRAX! And boy has it been a loooonnnngggg wait! But oh so worth it!
Mark E As well as recording for Ghostly International sister label Spectral Sounds, and running Merc records, Mark Evetts has been quietly going about making quality deep house music for the past seven years. Over that time his sound has morphed from disco samples based house tracks into fully fledged deep house productions. This year he released 'We could love' featuring Robert Owens on vocals, and we'd count him as one of the UK's foremost current deep house producers.
Basenji (Live) Basenji is the brand new alter ego of two very well known dnb producers who have taken things in a new direction, and somehow ended up signed to WANG TRAX. There forthcoming e.p. has been well road tested by Electro Elvis at WANG, and the eagle eyed amongst you might well recognise a couple of the tracks. Can't tell you too much about this just yet, so you'll just have to come along to check out what all the fuss is about! This is the world exclusive first outing of their brand new live show.
BNJMN (Live) BNJMN takes the classic electronica sound and pushes it in new directions. Combining elements of house, techno, and dubstep, he has carved out his own unique sound. Despite his young age he has already released two albums on Rush Hour records, and will be performing a rare live show.
Matt Walsh A residency at the T-Bar led Matt to meeting Tiga and signing to Turbo Records. Loads of remixes and original releases followed. This year Matt started a new night called Movement which he runs with Daniel Avery, and has been releasing records under the name 'Clouded Vision'.
Electro Elvis It just wouldn't be a WANG party without resident Electro Elvis taking control of the 1210s to get the party jumping and the WANG vibes pumping!
This party forms part of the Fire:In Sessions series of events, and will be taking place at Fire in Vauxhall. This venue has recently had a major refit, with an absolutely banging Void soundsystem installed throughout, and lighting like no other venue, with LED dancefloors, videowall, etc...l. It's only 2 minutes walk from Vauxhall tube station… Expect all the usual WANG shenanigans with video visuals, custom lights and lasers, and all host of mayhem.
All this for a mere £15 in advance tickets are available from:
WANG - Less of a club, more of a party!
