Show went out LIVE on www.techno.fm on Fri 8th Nov - 7pm > 10pm BST
1st hour: Hans Delbruck [ Handwandler / Oxytech / Urban Chaos Records ]
2nd hour: Arondeus [ Nexus / Techno.fm ]
3rd hour: Bunny [ Harder - Bucharest ]
We are very excited to bring Bunny (aka Patrik Heijenrath) over for a UK debut in December - and by way of a taster he’s very kindly fired us over a guestmix for November’s radio. We ran into his party, Harder (https://www.instagram.com/harderparty/) whilst clocking fellow queer and lgbtq-friendly techno parties around Europe and the world, and quickly made a solid connection based on a mutual love of hooning techno and the transformative potential of a quality crowd on an inclusive dancefloor.
Currently based in Bucharest, by way of the Netherlands and Berlin - Bunny has been throwing parties in both Bucharest and recently Sofia, Bulgaria - carving out a niche providing techno of the hardest and most intense variety to crowds of open-minded people of whatever background. Harder is currently working with crews and DJs from around Europe (parties coming up also feature the awesome Gegen collective from Berlin) to curate next-level nights.
Catch a little about what the night's about in the following Vice Magazine interview: (it's a google-translated page, so any mistakes are those tech bros' fault)
Hans Delbrück (AKA Harry Walker) is a multi-instrumentalist and electronic music producer from the North West of England.
Early influences come from the psych and punk music of the free festival scene from the late 80’s and early 90’s, which naturally morphed into the heavy, fast dance music that developed from those roots.
A veteran of the Manchester dance music scene, he was one half of resident live Techno act ‘Repeater’ at the legendary Havok nights and in-house producer for the label of the same name. Along with his partner in crime, Alan Woodburn, they played a hard mix of Acid Trance and Techno. Their first EP was from a shared session with London legends ‘Brides Make Acid’ and was released on ‘Filterless’ records. However, with the snowballing success of the Havok club, Havok Records was soon formed and a string of releases came shortly after: his collaborations and remixes with various artists and DJ.s include Lab4, Chris Liberator and Medicine man, to name but a few.
Over the last few years Harry has found himself drawn back to the electronic music he enjoyed so much in the past so the decision was made and ‘Hans Delbruck’ was resurrected. With a passion for heavy, brooding Techno and roots in the psychedelic soundscapes of his early influences, todays sound finds itself drifting between dark, minimal Techno and classic Acid Trance building with layers of ethereal synth patterns in equal measures of light and shade. Live and radio shows around the NW have received rave reviews – and recent releases and remixes on high-quality labels such as Oxytech, Urban Chaos and Hardwandler have cemented Hans’ reputation as an incredible musician and performer.
Disco-infused warehouse rave. Occasional drum machine and synth hybrid set stuff. You might hear: fast as anything brutality / wonky stuff / 90s wobblers / vogue samples / acid lines / big kicks. You won't hear: Drumcode / Ibiza techno.
Along with Loss Function - they've been bringing their individual brand of dancefloor punishers to nights across the UK and Europe - including a Berlin debut in November.
