4 Years of Cable: We Fear Silence present Blueprint
Room Two Hosted by Colony
With three years of relentless techno, sub-sonic beats & bass and the finest in house behind our backs, Cable takes a step into it’s fourth year with a special weekend, curating the best in underground electronic music – supporting the labels we love, and bringing our most forward-thinking promoters directly into the spotlight.
With Butterz Records masterminding Friday, we’ve got James Ruskin’s revered Blueprint imprint to curate the Saturday soiree with an unrivalled selection of driving techno from around the world. Ben Sims, perhaps one of the most famed names in techno, pioneering for his approach on the art of the mix, and his tough funk, hardgroove infused sets – has always stayed a keen involver, ever reinventing himself through a maze of labels, none more successful than his very own brainchild, Theory. With shows that are powerful, memorable and completely unique, Sims crosses the boundaries of DJing, showcasing classic and upfront techno. And for one night only, he’ll be down at the tunnels, showing you his best.
Function may be a New York boy, but his heart is in the same game as Sims’. As an evolver and pioneer of techno in New York - a sound that often gets drowned by the rest of New York’s creative exports – he has 15 years experience working with some of the biggest labels in the game, last month releasing a full-length named, Incubation, via Berlin’s great Ostgut Ton. Having opted for a more cinematic paradigm than any of his previous work, Function’s special live show from room one will be a spectacle worth witnessing and it's already making waves across the globe.
James Ruskin, Blueprint’s pioneer, and the man in charge of bringing the label out of it’s hiatus, makes an appearance on the lineup, as does Downwards Records latest prodigy, Samuel Kerridge, a man who’s already made his debut at Berghain, and now comes to Cable to bring the best in leftfield and immersive techno selections. And AnD, the Manchester based techno outfit who storm clubs with their predatory basslines and sassy percussion, blaring their own air raid siren for Techno’s second rising.
With room two in the hands of Colony – London’s forward facing techno party – get ready for old sounds from new names and new sounds from old names, as they bring their own fine slice of techno history to Cable on the 15th.
