Now that the post-holiday cheer has given way to the cold and bleak days of January, Grayscale is truly in its peak element. Revel in this darkness on the 20th as we range through techno’s glacial hinterland over ten hours with some of our favorite winter warmers.
Brooklyn’s SORAMIMI opens the evening at 8pm with an experimental set of her otherworldly, lush soundscapes that tread the line between ambient and dub techno. UCHI continues with another live performance; her uncompromising productions traverse genres and take bold and spontaneous paths. The pace picks up with COSMIN TRG, whose record selections still syncopate and swing as they nod slightly to his bass music beginnings. UK techno mainstay Ø [Phase] delves deeper into the shadows with his complex textures and intricate, snaking rhythms. A live set from the mysterious VRIL will see his deeply emotive and spacious tracks thundering out of the soundsystem with renewed heft. Output resident and bonafide local legend ANTHONY PARASOLE closes the night with one of his incendiary extended journeys through house, tribal, techno and beyond that remind us that DJing is a honed artform.
Panther Room’s warm glow and fireplace beckons around the corner as TAYLOR SHOCKLEY opens the party with his electro-infused take on deep house and melodic techno. We are then treated to a DJ set from the widely respected and prolific acid overlord TIN MAN, which will no doubt be dripping with pulsating moody 303s late into the evening.
