Stable Music, The Mercat and AiAiAi presents,
Capacity 300 – Speedy J [Electric Deluxe, NL]
After a six-month break, Capacity returns to where it all began, The Mercat and their heavy-duty Funktion One sound. The Mercat is almost sacred ground for techno in Melbourne with the birth place of the Melbourne Techno Collective, Centrifugal back in the day and in modern times the infamous Animals Dancing. With it’s superior sound, the Mercat was chosen very carefully for this event and we know you wont be disappointed. We can’t wait for the return of the undisputed king of live techno, Speedy J.
After 20 years of techno Speedy J has now come full circle. But what a an exiting journey it has been musicaly. Over the years he has collaborated with video-artists, filmmakers and advertisers, made the pioneering DVD Umfeld (2007), in collaboration with LA based video artist Scott Pagano. The DVD, remarkably made available as a free download on the internet for his fans is an audio-visual, electronic trip in 5.1 surround sound, which sets the standard for many composers who want to compose in the six speaker format.
Speedy J has continuously been pushing the boundaries of electronic & experimental dance music. Blurring the lines between Live performance and Digital Djing, he fuses subversive electronics and peak time Techno. Always on the lookout for new tools and technologies, Speedy has adopted some exotic tools in his studio setup such as Symbolic Sound’s Kyma system. He is also working collaborating with NI and Allen & Heath advising and helping develop DJ tools such as Traktor, Maschine and the A&H DB:4 mixer.
In the tradition of our previous events we will continue to bring high calibre artist to the intimate venues of Melbourne. Our ethos is for solid clean sound, decent bars and of coarse very limited capacity to ensure an intensity that is often lost in the modern clubbing experience. There will be no side show and strictly no comp tickets.
