It’s coming to that point of the 12 months once more after we all collect close to the Grampian mountains and expertise Pitch Music & Arts Festival. Pitch made it mark on Victoria’s pageant panorama in 2017 when it hit the bottom operating with brilliantly designed levels and a lineup that hadn’t actually been seen earlier than.
Bush festivals in Australia have historically been house to psy-trance, however Pitch took a unique approached and had a tough give attention to House and Techno. 2018 was an awesome observe as much as the primary outing for Pitch, and nothing has modified for 2019. Pitch Music & Arts Festival is ready to be an enormous one.
Here is my must-see record for all issues House & Techno
Âme b2b Dixon (6 hours)
The Innovision label heads honchos may be recurrently seen topping the Resident Advisor Best DJ record, so let this be some indication as to the ability degree of Âme and Dixon. Both artists are recognized for sonic high quality and distinctive groove which have had an awesome affect on world audiences. Many artists too have tried to emulate their sound, however fixed growth from each Âme and Dixon as DJs have stored them consistently pushing their very own boundaries.
Australia’s aren’t too conversant in an prolonged DJ set, however for European DJs, a 6-hour set isn’t something uncommon. I for one and fairly eager to boogie-down for a 360-minute lengthy journey that’s assured to have us all bopping about.
Daniel has impressed me on a couple of event. His 2013 Album Drone Logic remains to be certainly one of my favorite albums to take heed to. It’s a excessive constancy journey that’s certain to take any pay attention on a journey. It gave Daniel and sonic id that set him apart as a singular artist.
His DJ set a number of years in the past at Let Them Eat Cake has additionally been ingrained in my reminiscence. His DJ set was the right conclusion to the day. It additionally confirmed me that Daniel is a whole artist as he’s in a position to wow me together with his productions and DJ units. To hype him additional, he was the primary artist that Pitch introduced for 2019.
Dasha Rush is, for my part, the Russian most completed techno artist. She’s a producer, reside performer, label proprietor and DJ. I first noticed Dasha carry out at Rainbow Serpent in 2016. What she did along with her DJ set has caught with me ever since. She was billed for a two-hour set, enjoying proper after John Digweed. John went additional time by 45 minutes, giving unofficial permission to Dasha to do no matter she needed.
Dasha began by enjoying one hours price of atmospheric techno, after which merely simply stopped the music and began once more. This time, she ramped up the tempo and the aggression. To my ears it sounded just like the artist follower her, Efdemin, had began to play, however upon nearer inspection, it was Dasha who nonetheless had management of the decks. I’d by no means heard an artist merely cease, change the vibe and begin up once more. Needless to say, her set was wonderful. Dasha Rush is the artist I’m most wanting ahead to at Pitch.
I’ll be straight out and say that I haven’t really heard Dr Rubinstein play earlier than. The most I’ve seen of her is the enthusiastic DJ bopping about on Boiler Room and different DJ streams. That being stated, anybody who’s an everyday at ://about clean or Berghain have to be good at their craft.
Her cheerful character goes in opposition to the usual techno stereotype of black clothes and severe faces. Dr Rubinstein was born in Russian, raised in Israel and now resides in Berlin, fairly the multicultural DJ. She describes herself as a “true raver” in Tel-Aviv and brings these vibes to her DJ units.
Perc has led an nearly purely musical life. His path to turning into Perc began in Hertfordshire, England the place he was entranced by the sounds of punk and rock in his pre-teens. He was an “indie-kid”. It was solely when he was proven ravey sounds by his older brother that his consideration turned to digital music manufacturing.
After highschool, Perc started learning sound engineering and was impressed by the sounds of Carl Cox and Jeff Mills. It was in 2002 that he moved to London to pursue his music profession underneath the moniker Perc.
You can hear the influences of his youthful punk years in his music and he explores darkish and heavy soundscapes and grooves. Perc actually isn’t for the faint of coronary heart, so preserve that in thoughts as he units to blow our lids off at Pitch.
Roman Flügel’s tackle home, electro, techno and different genres makes his one of the crucial distinctive sounding artists on this years lineup. His DJ units cowl a variety of sounds and grooves, however his creativity permits him to mix between genres seamlessly, taking audiences on an odd and alluring sonic journey.
Experiences early in Roman’s life together with attending Sven Vath’s Omen membership, tinkering on his drum machines and synths and listening to 12” data kinds his early music training. For Roman, there wasn’t another factor to observe in life aside from music. For those that have an adventurous musical mindset, Roman Flügel is a should see.
