Egg London will be hosting a techno extravaganza with Dubspeeka and Pig&Dan on Saturday 20th August. After a rally of exciting events showcasing only the best house and techno, Egg continues its string of parties with this addition to the Egg Presents series, featuring one of the UKs brightest minds and one of Spain’s most in demand duos.
Darren Beale, or Dubspeeka as he is known on the clubbing circuit hails from Brighton and is akin to a very diverse style of electronic music that has found him on labels like Last Night On Earth and Drumcode, not to mention his own imprint, Skeleton. Darren began as a member of the dance group Kosheen, with whom he was responsible for two gold selling albums and a number of international hits. His Dubspeeka moniker however is aimed down the darker hall of techno, bringing in elements of rave and D&B, both of which he had an interest for whilst working with the rest of Kosheen. With a string of dates under his belt for some of the most respected clubs in the world like Watergate and Stereo in Montreal, this is an appearance in London not to be missed.
Joining Dubspeeka will be the duo based in Spain consisting of Igor Tchkotoua and Dan Duncan, together known as Pig&Dan. Meeting on a flight to the country they now call home, Pig&Dan began making music together and have since fathomed some huge tunes that have been released on labels like Cocoon and KMS, the latter of which saw them remix the all time classic, Inner City’s Good Life. Since then they have kept extending their repertoire and knowledge, whilst also starting up their own label Elevate, which has just put out a great EP featuring artists like Julian Jeweil and Luca Agnelli. Like the previous guest, they are touring non stop with recent sets at Andrea Oliva’s Ants Ibiza party as well as a number of OFF Sonar parties.
There will also be a very special guest joining Dubspeeka and Pig&Dan at EGG London in September, so keep your eyes peeled for some clues.
