MOVEMENT MUSIC SERIES | MATADOR

In preparation for what I hear is the coolest electronic festival around, I’m familiarizing myself with the line up. Thought I should try to bring it all to one place for you guys.

MATADOR

Richie Hawtin recently introduced the young Dubliner ahead of his first Minus event. Matador now takes the bull by the horns for his first full EP for Minus, exploring the twisted but organic techno sound he’s best known for. He’s also a trained chef! Gavin Lynch’s sound is described as a “slow building bomb” on his facebook page. Be the judge.

TRIPPIN’ ON ACID

I got my music junkie high today when I stumbled across Acid Invaders’ remix of Alt-J’s Breezeblocks.

I was wishfully looking up flights to Tomorrowland, and trying to figure out how long I would need to live off of top roman to go, when I realized they’re Belgian. Must be a sign right?!

Acid Invaders released their first techno house album last April. They have their own european digital feel that fuses dubstep influences with ravey synths to hardcore techno beat. According to their site, they incorporate sounds from detroit, wink, dahlback and many other producers into their unique acid soundscape. In 2012 they decided to tour with a true acid live act, injected with robotic voices, dark haunting melodies and strongly-built climaxes –  An abstract hypnotism and in-your-face techno that’s starting to detonate international dancefloors.
