Slovak Techno set at Mor Ho!, Red Gallery, Shoreditch, November 8th.
A special 'Slovnaft mix' to round off this night of Slovak and British electronic
the end of the 1990s European techno had moved from the underground
to the mass market and a certain blandness was setting in. Techno DJs
and listeners were starting to search for more radical and intense
sounds. It was just at this point that rumours began to emerge of a
club in a nuclear bunker in Slovakia where they played some of the
hardest and most industrial techno yet heard. The club was
Bratislava's U Club (now the Sub Club) and it would become the
nucleus of a small but influential scene.Codex Europa's Slovnaft Mix
is a celebration of the energy and dynamism of the Slovak techno
scene and an attempt to re-construct the legendary U Club atmosphere
in London. The mix will showcase the work of Slovak producers such as
DJ Boss, Olga + Jozef, Loktibrada, Rumenige and more, plus remixes
from their international allies. 90 minutes of some of the most
rigorous, mechanical, brutal and unrelenting techno ever produced...
