Имаме удоволствието да обявим двама от международните гости за тази година, които ще можете да чуете по време на ембиънт и техно часовете на фестивала: Dave Twomey aka Tr nch, един от основните деятели на японската ъндърграунд техно сцена, радиоводещ, диджей и продуцент, който наскоро издаде и първия си винил за лейбъла Time to Express, и Alan Backdrop - поредният италиански приятел на Артмосферик, който впечатлява с концептуални сетове, комбиниращи авторски материали и чужди винили в плавна градация от абсолютен ембиънт до движещо психаделично техно.
Dave Twomey aka Tr nch (Mariana / MYM Tokyo / Time to Express, Великобритания)
Dave's first gig was at Lakota in Bristol in 1998, as the paint was literally still drying after a one year 'refurbishment' of the infamous West country club. 4 years on, one abroad, in 2002 he won Muzik magazine's monthly mixing competition BEDROOM BEDLAM. In the same year he once again moved, this time to Japan. During his 8 year stay he held various residencies at Yellow, Air, Womb, Colors Studio & Warehouse702 injecting a well needed dose of the European underground into the Tokyo club scene. A keen & prolific event organiser over the years, various projects led him to his current focus MARIANA - deep, trippy & liquid techno events inspired centrally by the Mariana trench & its fearsome creatures. Past guests include the likes of Ben Klock, Peter Van Hoesen, Mike Parker & Delta Funktionen and the MARIANA DUB SESSION PODCAST, showcasing the Mariana sound, has received praise from the likes of MLZ & Peter Van Hoesen among others.
Performing as Dave Twomey what results is an organic, ever-evolving blend of steppy rhythms, tech house, techno and more, as much at ease performed on 100% vinyl as using Ableton, CDJ's or Serato. The present is everything; old, new & potential all wrapped up into one little journey. Fireworks, however you look at it.
Dave is currently back in the UK tending to his roots, focusing on production, but interspersed with regular trips to Japan to continue Mariana & tour. Dave's debut 12-inch release under his TR NCH alias is a collaboration with IORI on TIME TO EXPRESS. Described in press as 'mesmerising' with support from the likes of Cio D'Or, Laurent Garnier, & Chris Liebing among others.
The Tr nch sound explores the underbelly of techno - pulsating, throbbing soundscapes that mirror & draw influence from the deepest place on earth, the Mariana trench in the Pacific Ocean. The Tr nch DJ and live set involves deep, ephemeral & liquid techno, and like any Dave Twomey set draws heavily on a love of hypnotic music you can lose yourself in, vinyl of course & a 12 year DJ career which so far has taken Dave to Russia, Argentina, China, Chile, Germany, Paraguay, Brasil and Japan …
More production collaborations, Mariana tours & events in Japan and Europe, and even a Mariana vinyl label are in the works.
Born in 1984 in Piove di Sacco. Since I was a child I’ve been fascinated by music. I still remember when I got up stealthily at night to listen and listen again to the old cassettes in which I had captured the most particular, original and out of the box songs during the day. I spent hours and hours alternating “play” and “rewind” buttons trying to understand how that “thing” which gave me so much pleasure and made me blow into another dimension was made up. I couldn’t explain that! I thought it was impossible that a man had created something like that, it seemed me something inhuman. Time passed and during the first years of secondary school I got in touch with the music played in some local clubs such as “Spot” (Stargame) and “Teatro la Scala” (Autobahn). If I needed to find out unthinkable music, that was the answer! I had come upon the german techno-electro music of the nineties. Long strips of djs, everyone expressing himself with his own style; records looked like entrance doors through various worlds each one with the same common denominator: to pull you out from "reality". I began to collect several cassettes and I studied them nonstop.
When I was 22 years old I felt strongly attracted by djing and so I bought turntables and began to seek and collect vinyls obsessively. Absolutely the artist who most influenced me is Monolake/Robert Henke (I think that there is nothing to add on it). And others as Anders Ilar, Sleeparchive, Submania & Ekmoah, Richie Hawtin, Quantec, Donato Dozzy and many others…
Indeed i'm very attracted by the surreal atmospheres and I try my own style among these. In October 2006, together with my friends Enrico (Status Und) and Stefano (Oldste), I gave birth to “Thursdaysdeep”, our own crew. We are a small group of people who meet every Thursday in a little room to express themselves through music and have fun. Later many other friends, such as Enrico (Radio Live Trasmission) and Manuel (Feelfloor), started to be part of this little reality.
