It gives us the greatest of pleasures to welcome one of the biggest names in the electronic music game to play an all night long set at Wire for the first time. Raise your glasses for Mr. Roman Flugel! Roman will be dropping the very first beat and will play all night until the lights come up…
Active since the early 1990's, Flugel is what can only be described as a chameleon purveying an abundance of styles from ambient/electronica to house, techno, electro and leftfield. After several long evenings spent at Sven Väth’s renowned Omen club, witnessing the legendary Warp and Underground Resistance label nights set the wheels in motion for what has now become one of the most beautifully quirky and superlative producers of our time.
A notorious analogue head, Flugel has a plethora of hardware in his arsenal that has reflected his multifarious musical output. The electronic intellectual’s productivity is virtually unparalleled and as label co-owner of Ongaku, Klang AND Playhouse he has meanwhile become somewhat of a gentle giant in the German electronic music scene. With his own personal style and the privilege of being independent from the usual constraints of the music industry, Flugel has honed his own weird and wonderful that now personifies him as a producer. While Roman’s work as Eight Miles High and Ro 70 tend to show his more reserved side, he has also had the opportunity to remix the likes of superstars Daft Punk, The Human League, Primal Scream and Pet Shop Boys to name but a few!
Be it his sets at Frankfurt’s legendary Robert-Johnson, Ibiza’s Amnesia or Berlin’s unrelenting techno holy grail Berghain/Panorama Bar, Flugel always provides something a bit different from the norm, a sometimes unconventional yet beautifully crafted journey through the last 20 or so years of his idealistic rave culture. Expect to hear supreme rarities from all sides of the musical spectrum from minimal house or quirky techno to futuristic Italo-disco and electronica in the most intimate of venues at Wire. You won’t get a better chance than this to catch one of the world’s hidden gems having the whole night to explore his own musical boundaries and most importantly to blow your minds!
